SX to ASK Compressor range

The HPC SX air compressor and HPC ASK air compressor ranges help to reduce maintenance costs for small air users. These rotary screw compressors with V-belt drive provide outstanding efficiency and reliability to 22 kW. HPC, the UK subsidiary of world-renowned air compressor manufacturers Kaeser, was one of the first compressor manufacturers to introduce the V-belt drive system.

What makes the HPC SX air compressor range stand out?

Both the HPC SX and HPC ASK air compressor ranges benefit from a unique belt drive system. The HPC drive is characterised by an automatic tensioning device that ensures constant transmission efficiency and therefore reduces maintenance costs.

The control unit features an easy to read display and durable input keys, so all relevant information can be seen easily. User-friendliness is further enhanced by the logical menu structure and the ability to display data in any one of 30 selectable languages. HPC SX air compressor models are equipped with a flat drive belt that does not require additional tensioning.

How do rotary HPC ASK air compressors work?

The HPC ASK air compressor range uses atmospheric air that is drawn through the inlet air filter, cleaned, and then passed into the airend where it is compressed. Specially developed SIGMA FLUID is injected into the airend to serve as coolant, lubricant and sealant.

Under normal conditions the air reaches a temperature of only approximately 80°C during compression. The compressed air is then separated from the cooling fluid (ca. < 2 mg/m3) in the separator and from there passes through the minimum pressure valve to the aftercooler.

The separated, cooled and filtered cooling fluid is re-injected into the airend. In the aftercooler, the air is cooled down to between 5 and 10 K above ambient and most of the moisture carried in the air is consequently removed before the air finally leaves the compressor at the outlet.

HPC SX air compressor and HPC ASK air compressor features and benefits

  • Energy saving SIGMA PROFILE rotors – Every HPC rotary screw airend is equipped with energy-saving SIGMA PROFILE rotors. Components manufactured to the highest standards and precision aligned roller-bearings ensure long service life with maximum reliability.
  • SIGMA CONTROL 2 – The control unit features an easy to read display and durable input keys, so all relevant information can be seen easily. User-friendliness is further enhanced by the logical menu structure and the ability to display data in any one of 30 selectable languages.
  • Automatic belt tensioning – The automatic belt tensioning device ensures consistent transmission efficiency and excellent drive system reliability (excluding SX series models).
  • Cooling air filter mats – Ambient air used for cooling is contaminated to some degree, but the high-performance filter mats through which the air is drawn into the cabinet prevent the cooler from clogging.
  • IE3 energy saving motors – Needless to say, HPC rotary screw compressors (from SM series upwards) are equipped with premium efficiency IE3 drive motors.

Glaston also offers a range of products and services, including nitrogen generators and vacuum pumps. from the most trusted manufacturers.
