Mastering water-injected screw technology
Atlas Copco has been developing and marketing water-injected screw technology for more than 10 years. With this new AQ, water-injected screw technology is available from 15 to 55 kW.
The superior cooling capacity of water ensures that heat is efficiently removed right at the source. Not only is water-injected lubrication completely oil-free, the AQ also allows for easier installation. A water-injected screw compressor requires less filtration and as it is completely oil-free, it needs no further oil treatment or oil changes.
