Built for a lifetime
Everyone talks about reliability, but no one else in the industry has Kaeser's rigourous "built-for-a-lifetime" philosophy. Our goal is to establish long-term relationships with our customers, and we don't compromise on quality for the sake of short-term financial returns. This means you can rest assured that Kaeser air system products will continue to deliver the air you need, year after year.
At Air Solutions Canada, we evaluate each customer's compressed air application in order to provide the most efficient and effective air system solution. While the need for stable pressure, good air quality, system reliability, and energy efficiency is nearly universal, we know that each application is unique. Kaeser's wide product range lets us tailor each air system to meet your specific challenges.
Energy costs are a significant portion of any air system's total cost. In fact, the annual energy bill to run a compressor can exceed its purchase price. Over many years, energy accounts for 70% or more of air system lifecycle cost. Kaeser's energy-saving equipment delivers significantly more air per KW. Keaser's system designs have helped many customers save millions of dollars in energy every year.
From the ground up, Kaeser products have been designed with service in mind. Fewer wearing parts and quality materials ensure reduced maintenance, longer service intervals, and extended service life. Features like automatic belt tensioners, quick fluid drain system, "one side" maintenance, and full access cabinet designs simplify service and lower operating costs.
Compressor & Vacuum Products
INDUSTRIAL SCREW COMPRESSORS
Kaeser's rotary screw air compressors feature the proprietary Sigma Profile™ airend. Available from 3 to 700 hp, with capacities from 9 to 3142 cfm, and pressures up to 217 psig. Sigma Frequency Control (SFC) units feature variable frequency drive (VFD) technology. "T" versions with integrated dryer are also available on most models.
SCREW COMPRESSOR PACKAGES
Kaeser also offers the AIRCENTER and Airtower-complete compressed air packages that integrate compressor with controller, dryer, tank, and drain into one compressed air system. These systems are ideal where floor space is limited.
OIL-FREE SCREW COMPRESSORS
Kaeser's oil-free rotary screw compressors are available with capacities from 192 cfm to 1774 cfm and pressures from 45 psig to 145 psig. SFC models are available for superior part load performance. An integrated heat of compression dryer (i.HOC) or an integrated refrigerated dryer ("T" versions) are also available on most models.
These single-stage units increase air system pressure up to 650 psig. Units range in size from 3 to 60 hp, with capacities to 819 cfm. N-series boosters are baseplate mounted and the NC series is fully enclosed. Booster compressors are ideal for many applications where a moderate amount of high-pressure plant air is required.
ROTARY SCREW VACUUM PACKAGES
Available with capacities ranging from 168 to 555 acfm and 99% final vacuum, these units are equipped with TEFC motors from 10 hp to 40 hp. Switchable dual/modulation control and an externally mounted vacuum filter in the suction line are standard.
Air Treatment Products & System Components
REFRIGERATED AIR DRYERS
Units offered for capacities from 10 to 12,500 scfm. Non-cycling, cycling, and Dual Control dryers provide maximum efficiency by offering the best drying solution for a wide array of applications.
DESSICANT AIR DRYERS
Available from 7 to 5400 scfm, these regenerative dryers produce pressure dew points as low as -100ºF. Kaeser's heatless KAD, heated purge KED dryers, blower purge KBD dryers, and Breathing Air Systems complete Kaeser's comprehensive dessicant dryer line.
Hybritec dryers combine refrigerated dryers with dessicant dryers for optimum energy savings potential. They are ideally suited for large-volume applications, where the required dew points vary seasonally.
COMPRESSED AIR FILTERS
Designed with housings that have larger flow areas to ensure low pressure drop, these filters provide easy installation, operation, and maintenance. Kaeser filters maintain high capture rates and filtration efficiencies across a wide range of flows, 20 to 21,250 scfm, and pressures up to 1000 psig.
Kaeser's automatic drains, liked the Automatic Magnetic Drain (AMD)(above left) and the award-winning Eco-Drain (above right) provide reliability and reduce maintenance. Timed electric traps and automatic drain traps complete Kaeser's condensate drain product line.
The Kaeser Condensate Filter automatically removes lubricant from compressor condensate. This allows for easy and economical disposal of compressed air condensate in an environmentally responsible way. The low maintenance system requires no electricity for operation.
The Kaeser Flow Controller (KFC) ensures stable system pressure and reduces artificial demand and leakage losses. Unlike regulators, the KFC has a low internal pressure drop and accurately maintains downstream pressure. The Air Main Charging Valve and System prevent excessive velocity by automatically opening and closing to maintain a safe pressure in the supply side of the air system and minimize the exposure time of air treatment to high velocity air, thereby extending service life.
COMPRESSED AIR DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM
Fast to install and easy to modify, Kaeser's complete SmartPipe™ line is the most versatile compressed air distribution system available. Lightweight materials and push-to-fit connectors reduce installation time and fatigue, even in overhead installations. Leak-free performance with low pressure drop. Available in eight sizes, from 3/4" to 6". From small shops to large industrial facilities, SmartPipe is great for a wide range of installation needs.
SIGMA CONTROL 2™
Sigma Control 2 is an onboard controller that ensures efficient control and compressor operation monitoring. The large display and RFID reader provide easy communication and maximum security. Multiple, selectable interfaces enable seamless networking capability, while the SD card slot makes updates quick and easy.
SIGMA AIR MANAGER 4.0
Sigma Air Manager 4.0 combines the benefits of modern industrial PC technology with Internet technology to provide unparalleled compressor control, monitoring, and energy savings. Integrated Kaeser Connect software provides enhanced reporting and enables end users to monitor air system operation from any location.
CUSTOM ENGINEERED SOLUTIONS
Kaeser's Custom Engineered Solutions are compressed air and vacuum systems built to specification for the most demanding and challenging installations. These complete systems are designed for exceptional reliability, simple maintenance, and superior energy efficiency, no matter what the installation limits may be. They eliminate space, weather, and accessibility constraints and can significantly reduce construction, installation, and operating costs.
SIGMA AIR UTILITY
Sigma Air Utility (SAU) is a proven solution. Kaeser designs, builds, owns, operates, maintains, and stands behind your compressed air system. Kaeser guarantees the amount of air you need at the pressure you need, and at the quality you need. On top of that, it will be the most energy efficient air system you've ever had.
Omega positive displacement blowers offer flows to 5500 cfm, pressures to 15 psig and vacuum to 27" Hg. Heavy duty construction provides longer service life and quiet operation.
COMPLETE BLOWER PACKAGES
Kaeser's Com-paK series is blower package complete with premium efficiency TEFC motor, silencers, and integrated controls. The package arrives assembled and ready to operate. All service points are in front and utility connections are in the back, so units can be placed side by side to reduces footprint.
