Ingersoll Rand introduced its new models of the next generation R-Series oil-flooded rotary screw air compressors at an event held in Dubai last week. The compressors provide a more energy-efficient solution for customers with high capacity air requirements, the company said in a statement.
The event gathered over 30 representatives from distributors from the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Egypt, Lebanon, Kuwait, Jordan, Bahrain, Qatar, Libya, and Iraq. The launch included discussions on how, by taking a total systems approach, operations can increase performance and reduce inefficiencies for significant bottom-line benefit.
The new RS200 to RS250 models are available with the new, single-stage airend, or the two-stage airend that increases airflow by up to 16%. The new fixed-speed models are 10% more efficient compared to legacy products, while the variable speed option is up to 35% more efficient compared to the industry average.
Kevin Kosobud, portfolio leader, oil flooded compressors for compression technologies and services at Ingersoll Rand, said: “The ability for these compressors to deliver outstanding efficiency without compromising reliability meets the increasing demands of industries to increase productivity while reducing energy use. Our next-generation R-Series RS200 to RS250 models help customers increase overall system reliability and decrease their total cost of ownership with new state-of-the-art features and performance enhancements that save them tens of thousands of Euros.”
Ingersoll Rand has added these models to the next generation R-Series portfolio allowing customers who run 24/7 and rely on large amounts of compressed air to have equipment that is as reliable as their demand.
According to internal testing, efficiency and design improvements on some of the high capacity compressors deliver up to a $44,690 energy cost savings over a two-year period per compressor compared to previous models.
The RS200 to RS250kW models are the third introduction to the next generation R-Series line of compressors, following the next generation R-Series 30 to 37kW fixed-speed and variable speed drive introductions in 2015 and 2016.
