Cylinder: 385 cc
Motor needed: 2.2kW to 3kW (3 hp. To 4 hp.)
Displacement at 1000 rpm with 2.2 kW motor: 385 liter/min.
Displacement at 1400 rpm with 3 kW motor: 539 liter/min.
Free air delivery at 1000 rpm: 277 liter/min and 378 at 1400 rpm.
Number of pistons: 2
Piston diameter: 70 mm and stroke 50mm
Maximum pressure: 10 bar
Refrigerated air dryers from 750 liters/min up to 6500 liter/min ex-stock. Larger ex overseas. Dew point 4°C under pressure. Automatic drain pre and manual drain after filters.
Screw compressors have no valves or other mechanical forces to cause imbalances unlike piston compressors.
Airpower keeps universal spare parts for compressors. Pressure switches, non return valves and safety valves are universal to all compressors. Bottom entry filters/ regulators, electric motors and starters can be used for many makes of compressors.
