In 2019 and 2020 a variety of regulations were introduced across Europe to limit harmful emissions as much as possible. These regulations also apply to mobile non-road equipment.
The XAHS 408 is the most recent addition to our Stage V fleet. With these new engines, we not only reduce harmful emissions, but increase efficiency by up to 6% when we compare it with other, similar, compressors on the market. In short, this means that Atlas Copco Rental equipment with Stage V compliant engines meet the strictest regulations and are the cleanest on the market.
Even when you have to rely on temporary equipment, you can still reach your sustainability goals!
Besides the engine, there are two additional features on the XAHS 408 that contribute to its efficiency. Let’s have a look at the XC 2003 controller first. These controllers are equipped with ECO-mode, a software setting that makes the compressor switch automatically from load to unload and no-load. For some applications, when ECO-mode is active, the compressor saves up to 50% on energy, compared to normal idle status.
Then there is PACE — an easy to use system that offers the widest operating pressure range within a single compressor. It allows for multiple pressure and flow combinations, and pressure can be adjusted with 0.1 bar between 5 and 14 bar. This means your compressor is capable of handling a variety of applications. From abrasive blasting to blast hole drilling and shotcrete applications. With the XAHS 408, you set the pace!
The XAHS 408 was tested both in lab and field conditions to ensure optimal performance and be as efficient as possible. From wide-open spaces to more confined indoor locations, we’ve tried it all. The side doors, designed as gull-wing doors, allow for easy access to all service points. This, in turn, reduces services times and increases efficiency. The XAHS 408 is designed to withstand the toughest working conditions and is compliant with the strictest Stage V regulations out there!
