Kaeser Mobilair 17 compact compressor

Tuesday, 06 March, 2018 | Supplied by: Kaeser Compressors Australia


The Mobilair 17 from Kaeser is suitable wherever a compact portable powerhouse is required, with features including high power, efficiency, manoeuvrability, high power and quiet operation.

With a flow rate of 1.6 m3/min at 7 bar, the M 17 is capable of powering breakers, drills, saws, grinders, impact wrenches and even impact borers. In addition, the 7 bar version is suitable for powering pneumatically driven pipe inspection robots. For added flexibility, the portable compressor is available in a 15 bar version.

At the heart of every model lies a powerful Kaeser screw compressor block equipped with the energy-efficient Sigma Profile rotors, which are said to achieve power savings of up to 15% compared with conventional screw compressor block rotor profiles. An air-cooled 4-stroke Honda petrol engine provides the necessary power via a maintenance-free v-belt drive system, ensuring power transmission between the engine, motor and screw compressor block.

The product comes equipped with a 20 L capacity fuel tank that enables uninterrupted operation during long work shifts, eliminating the need for frequent refuelling. A continuous air delivery control system precisely matches compressor performance to suit actual compressed air demand, which further reduces fuel consumption of the already efficient compressor units.

The device is highly durable due to a corrosion-proof rotation-sintered PE enclosure, which contributes to its quiet operation with a sound power level of <97 dB (A). Because it is compact and lightweight, it can be easily transported in any delivery vehicle, or on the loading floor of a truck or pick-up, leaving the vehicle’s tow coupling free for use.

For applications that require cool and condensate-free compressed air, the product can be equipped with an external compressed air aftercooler. The aftercooler is installed in a frame equipped with fixed connections for compressed air, condensate return and electrical power (12 V supply from the compressor) to drive the aftercooler fan. Accumulating condensate is vaporised with help from the hot engine exhaust.

The unit is user friendly when it comes to maintenance and handling: manoeuvrability on the construction site is made simple due to the long handle, rugged wheels with pneumatic tyres, four convenient lifting lugs and a countersunk crane eye. Maintenance tasks are easy to carry out, as the wide-opening sound enclosure enables good component accessibility.
