The Atlas Copco XRVS 1550 is a two-stage, oil-injected, rotary screw type air compressor, powered by a liquid-cooled, six-cylinder twin-turbocharged diesel engine.
The unit consists of one low pressure and one high-pressure air end, diesel engine, cooling circuit, air/oil separation and control systems - all enclosed within a sound dampened powder coated enclosure.
A range of undercarriage formats, factory and locally installed options are available.
Special attention has been given to the overall product quality, user-friendliness, ease of serviceability, and economical operation to ensure best in class cost of ownership.
The Smart Air Xc4004 controller features the latest innovations. We believe a controller should put you in complete control, while being intuitive, and most importantly easy to use and navigate.
Smart controls also protect your investment: improve your efficiency while decreasing the operating costs of your equipment through advanced insights.
Pressure gauge, running hours, fuel levels are always in plain sight, without toggling. Clear warning and alarm codes will clearly notify you in case of problems.
The controller will tell you when maintenance is due. If something goes wrong, alarms will notify you audibly and visually. And if something goes critically wrong, the controller will shut down the compressor and protect your investment.
Engine: Caterpillar C18 ACERT
Caterpillar C18 Tier 4 Final, twin turbocharged, six-cylinder, liquid-cooled diesel engine provides ample power to operate the compressor continuously at full load. Meats US EPA and Environment Canada Tier 4 Final exhaust legislations. The US EPA engine family is “KCPXL18.1HXF”. Engine output at rated speed, in accordance to SAE Standard, is 755 Bhp at 1800 rpm, as limited by the engine ECU. The engine has the capability to start the compressor to -13°F (-25°C) with standard 1500 W block heater and standard CAT ether start. The 240 Gal (909L) fuel tank is sufficiently sized to operate the unit for a minimum of 7.75 hours at the full load condition. External fuel connections with a 3 way valve are standard on the unit.
The DrillAir XRVS 1550 CD compressor utilizes a combination of Atlas Copco C190 and J34 element and are driven from the Caterpillar diesel engine. Inlet air is filtered through a heavy duty air filter.

HDD is a trenchless technology that use surface-launched equipment to drill underground horizontally and install pipes, conduits, and cables. This process can be air-driven and are used in numerous industries, such as utilities and telecommunications, at sites in dense, urban areas and/or where traditional vertical excavations are too dangerous (e.g., under bodies of water).
Compressors in the DrillAir line can power large-diameter and/or long-run HDD processes with high throughput. The power of these units maximizes the efficiency of drilling operations, lowering project overhead and decreasing downtime.
The DrillAir range provides one of the highest air volumes at one of the highest air pressures available in the portable compressor industry. This also makes these new compressors one of the most energy efficient by having a very low specific fuel consumption for the air delivered.
Dynamic Flow Boost ® increases flow from 34.8 to 39m³/min (650l/s) when flushing and during drill stem refill. It means faster flushing, faster stem refill and a shorter time to finish a well.
High penetration rate with 35 bar pressure and 34.8m³/min (580l/s) flow means more meters drilled every day.
The units were tested both in lab and field conditions to ensure optimal performance. It’s designed to withstand the toughest working conditions. The updated HardHat canopy is our toughest, most aesthetically pleasing canopy to date. It’s corrosion free and needs no painting or dent repair.
Whether in quarries or underground applications, we have a wide range of compressors with high flow and pressure ranges. Specially for underground applications: minimize ventilation costs by selecting one of our electric driven mobile compressors.;
