SERVICES company Kaeser recently launched its latest generation, compact, and cost-effective M57 Utility portable compressor, which boasts greater flexibility, according to the company.

Kaeser said the M57 Utility retains all of the original series popular features, including its compact size which is crucial for truck-mounting and its upward expelling exhaust gas outlet.

The unit is configured as standard for a temperature range from minus 10 celsius to plus 50 celsius.

However, a version designed for even lower ambient temperatures is offered with pre-warming of the motor cooling water, the company said.

In addition to its 7-bar version, a new model with a flow rate of 4.7 cubic metres per minute at 10 bar maximum pressure is now available and ideal for applications such as sand-blasting.

With the intelligent Sigma Control Smart (SCM) controller fitted as standard, pressure can be reduced down to 5 bar in precise 0.1 bar increments for perfect adjustment to on-site conditions.

Kaeser said the colour display provides a convenient overview of all operating parameters, alarm notifications and upcoming required maintenance, and the motor start-up is made easy with the push of a button.

The Kaeser rotary screw compressor block with Sigma Profile rotors is directly driven without transmission loss by an energy-saving Kubota diesel engine.

In addition, with its integrated fuel tank, the M57 is able to ensure over 10 hours of uninterrupted operation.

Kaeser is offering the Mobilair M 57 Utility portable compressor in two pressure stages 7 bar and 10 bar.

Kaeser Compressors manufactures a wide range of compressors and associated auxiliary equipment that meet the varying requirements of a diverse range of industries and applications.

Kaeser Compressors Australia provides sales and service from its 30,000 square foot purpose built factory in Dandenong, Victoria alongside an extensive network of sales and service centres and authorised partners that cover Australia, New Zealand and New Caledonia.
