Atlas Copco adds four new models to mobile compressor range

ATLAS Copco has announced an expansion of its Versatility range of mobile compressors with the launch of XAS 188-10 PACE, XAS 188-14 PACE, XAS 288-10 PACE, and XAS 238-14 PACE.

The new models are Stage V-compliant and described as being built for ‘harsh environments’ such as construction, quarrying, mining, and demolition sites.

“The term ‘versatility’ is defined as the ability to adapt or be adapted to many different functions or activities,” said Rodolfo Reimberg, VP marketing for Atlas Copco’s portable air division. “This is summed up impeccably by the compressors in our Versatility range. Thanks to our PACE technology, operators can change their compressor’s pressure and flow easily to adjust it to their jobs’ needs.

“Our customers will only need one compressor for multiple applications.”

Atlas Copco’s PACE (Pressure Adjustment through Cognitive Electronics) system allows multiple pressure and flow combinations. The manufacturer explained that PACE extends the operating spectrum for a single compressor from 5 up to 14 bar. This increased versatility is said to boost the utilisation rate, providing extra productivity as it gives more flow when operators lower the pressure.

The four new models feature ECO-mode to improve fuel efficiency as well as Atlas Copco’s HardHat polyethylene canopy.
