Atlas Copco has updated its SF compact, oil free scroll compressors. The new SF Mono 1 – 6 and SF+ 2 – 6 ranges are complete compressor packages that unite the element, driver mode, aftercooler and starter in a super silent acoustic enclosure to provide 100% oil free air for critical applications such as R&D labs, hospitals, universities, dentistry and food & beverage manufacturing.
The distinguishing feature of these new compressors is the near silent operation, the slow speed of the air cooled scroll compression elements ensure that the SF compressors are exceptionally quiet, enabling units to be installed close to the point of use. This proximity helps minimise the size of the air distribution system, reducing pressure loss and any potential for leakage.
The new SF Mono features a cool canopy, designed for optimal ventilation and sound insulation, down to 53 dB(A). It provides more breathing space for core components and better cooling flow, which results in lower outlet and element temperatures for improved operational lifetime.
Other major features include a totally enclosed air cooled IP55 Class F insulated motor, complying with IE3 premium efficiency standards and capable of coping with the harshest of operational conditions. The air circuit comprises an oversized cooler for improved performance, aluminium pipework and a vertically oversized check valve to ensure a reliable delivery of high quality compressed air. Unloaded power consumption is eliminated thanks to the simple automatic stop that operates when the required working pressure is reached, thereby avoiding unnecessary energy costs.
