Kaeser now equips all of its rotary screw compressors from 30 kW and up with Super Premium Efficiency IE4 motors as standard to provide efficient air supply. They serve to further cut compressor power consumption. Moreover, further refinement and optimisation of Kaeser’s renowned Kaeser Sigma Profile airends – the key components actually responsible for producing the compressed air – has helped boost specific power in rotary screw compressors from 75 kW and up, for example, by as much as 12 percent. The new DSD and FSD-series rotary screw compressors therefore offer significantly enhanced efficiency and higher flow rates.

The frequency-controlled ASD compressor series has set yet another milestone: the synchronous reluctance motor now installed as standard for the first time features markedly lower rotor power losses – precisely in the crucial partial-load range – compared to asynchronous motors.

Kaeser container solution provides a source of quality oil-free compressed air with flexibility of installation in a compact package. Housed in a container and equipped with a CSG-series rotary screw compressor, this versatile compressed air station can be placed anywhere on the operator’s property (a level surface is the only prerequisite), there’s no need for costly investment in an on-site compressor room. With Kaeser’s trademark efficiency and reliability, this compact station delivers oil-free compressed air to pressure dew points of -30°C. 

It‘s a given that the central aspects of Industrie 4.0 – machine networking and communication capabilities – are highly beneficial no matter what size of compressor is used. Accordingly Kaeser is now also extending Industrie 4.0 capabilities to its smaller rotary screw compressor models (2.2 to 22 kW) so that users of these units can also benefit from seamless integration into Industrie 4.0 environments. Specifically SX - ASK series rotary screw compressors now feature the Sigma Control 2 compressor controller as standard equipment – the component necessary to unlock the powerful benefits of machine networking.

Kaeser’s signature compressed air management system, now featuring improved 3D Advanced Control, perfectly harmonises the operation of all components in a compressed air system to ensure maximum availability and energy efficiency at all times. As such it acts as the central node and basic requirement for taking advantage of powerful Industrie 4.0 services such as permanent energy management and predictive maintenance.

Modern, innovative service solutions are a crucial part of a compressed air supply’s life-cycle; in fact, they’re a vital component of any complete system. With the innovative Sigma Smart Air service, Kaeser makes customer-tailored maintenance services available to every user. In addition to enabling predictive maintenance in combination with the Sigma Air Manager 4.0, Sigma Smart Air ensures optimum energy efficiency and compressed air availability.

Operator models, such as Sigma Air Utility, perfectly complement Kaeser’s extensive range of future-oriented compressed air products and solutions. Not everyone whose business relies on compressed air necessarily wishes to take on the effort and responsibility of maintaining their own on-site compressed air supply. So for some, paying for compressed air as a service can be highly worthwhile: the amount paid is directly linked to actual consumption. And since fixed costs are transformed into variable costs.
