Air compression manufacturer Kaeser Compressors has added two larger models to its Mobilair e-power, portable compressor range, created for use in low emission and noise protection areas.

The M250E and M255E models have a drive output of 132 kW and 160kW, respectively, and deliver exhaust-free and quiet compressed air production, wherever an electrical power connection is available.

In a statement from Kaeser Compressors, the drive units of these portable compressors run on an energy-efficient IE4 electric motor, as well as a Sigma Profile screw compressor block that has ‚Äúconsistently proven itself in industrial rotary screw compressors‚ÄĚ.

The new systems are designed for outdoor installations and are built to move quickly from one place to another, including galvanised skids with forklift slots, fitted as standard, and a crane lifting eye designed to assist when loading and unloading.

Supplied as standard, the aftercooler with centrifugal separator extracts moisture from the air while the systems also have an optional filter installed within the body of the unit for oil-free compressed air.

The M250E and M255E are supplied by Kaeser Compressors' Australian operations in Victoria.
