The newest range of clean-air, oil free compressors from Abac UK are claimed to be much quieter, more robust and more efficient than previous models.
Designed for demanding laboratory and scientific applications, the Prime Range (PR) of compressors are available in both silenced and standard form, with or without adsorption air dryers.
The silenced version, housed in a modern acoustic cabinet, can achieve noise levels as low as 54dB(A).
These compressors do not use oil as a lubricant, and are therefore inherently hygienic and suitable for a range of scientific, medical and laboratory applications.
When forming part of a high quality system together with an adsorption dryer and air filters, they are capable of providing very high quality uncontaminated air which easily meets all regulatory requirements.
These systems can produce compressed air with an atmospheric dew-point of not less than -20C, dust filtration down to one micron and optional bacterial filtration down to 0.01micron.
The range incorporates a number of advanced features.
All models utilise an innovative compressor pump unit of advanced design, producing higher air output - maximum air pressure 10bar - with less vibration.
The compressor pump design allows a lower running speed, leading to reduced noise levels and longer life.
Special anti-vibration mountings are also used, reducing pump vibration and cabinet noise further.
In the PR range a choice of three motor sizes is offered, including 2hp (1.5kW) and 1hp (0.75kW) models.
The models in this range which use an integral dryer offer a major operational advantage in that they are practically maintenance free,.
The receiver is also coated internally to avoid any contamination of the compressed air.
For those models using an accoustic cabinet, overall cabinet size is the same for all models at 425x695x795mm (wxdxh) and a weight of around 90kg.
