Atlas Copco introduces the DrillAir Y35 - A new benchmark in portable drilling efficiency
January 13, 2021
Atlas Copco has launched the new DrillAir Y35 portable compressor. The DrillAir Y35 can drill two 4.5” geothermal wells in a single day, with its high penetration rates significantly reducing the fuel cost per metre drilled*.
Specifically designed for geothermal drilling applications, the DrillAir Y35 offers significant increases in drilling rates, fuel efficiency and reliability thanks to its 35 bar pressure and 34.8 m3/min (580 l/s) flow.
The DrillAir Y35 reduces the time and associated costs of geothermal drilling, representing a new benchmark in portable drilling efficiency. Lower maintenance costs, less fuel consumption, increased uptime and faster drilling all make a positive contribution to a driller’s bottom line.
The DrillAir Y35 was designed and built for reliable performance. A three-layer coating protects all bodywork to increase lifetime and residual value. Ease of transportation played a big part in the overall design of the DrillAir Y35. Its compact dimensions, including a short 4.1 metre compressor frame and lower weight, ensure that a single truck can carry both the compressor and the rig. This also provides for improved manoeuvrability on site. With the DrillAir Y35, maintenance and repair costs are fixed for the first two years or 4000 running hours with Atlas Copco’s standard warranty package. Service costs can also be fixed for the lifetime of the machine with a range of customisable service plans. *The DrillAir Y35 consumes less than 2.2 litres of fuel per meter drilled, dependent on various operational parameters. **For more information on Stage IV emission standards please download below overview.
