How can the Drillair range boost efficiency for drilling applications?

Atlas Copco offers a full range of high pressure compressors delivering up to 35 bar: the Drillair range. These compressors are the most efficient drilling solution for various drilling applications. 

The scientific principles for pressure and flow were central in the design process of the Drillair range. The right combination of pressure and flow improves efficiency in time spent and fuel consumed. With the DrillAir range, you achieve the maximum air flow at any pressure setting, offering you the most efficient drilling solution for your drilling application.

There is no such thing as one size fits all when it comes to efficient drilling. Depending on the depth of hole and the size of the hammer the right product makes all the difference. The DrillAir range gives you the opportunity to choose a product which is right for your core business, while giving you the flexibility to adapt to changes in well depth and hammer size, for any custom applications.

Drillair features like high pressure, Dynamic Flow boost, Stage V compliancy and a extended pressure range all enhance productivity and profitability. At the same time other options help to decrease operational cost.

Higher revenue

The Atlas Copco DrillAir range offers it all, with all the features you need to drill faster, and increase your revenue. Drilling is a tough business. Every second counts: time is money. By drilling faster your revenues grow. By managing the operational costs of the extra meters drilled, the DrillAir allows you to make higher profits.

Atlas Copco DrillAir - Costoverview

Drilling efficiency explained

35 bar pressure

High penetration rate with 35 bar pressure and 34.8m³/min (580l/s) flow means more meters drilled every day.

DrillAirXpert

The combination of DrillAirXpert, the Atlas Copco screw element and a Scania engine provides high drilling efficiency for a wide range of pressure and flow.

Atlas Copco XPR

Atlas Copco XPR extends the working pressure range. It is based on patented technology and lets you set working pressure as low as 15 bar. The DrillAir Y35 is an efficient drilling solution for geothermal foundation drilling and other applications.

Dynamic Flow Boost ®

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.

Drill more meters per hour

Drilling with a 35 bar high pressure compressor allows you to drill more meters in an hour. Even though consumption per hour is higher, the cost per meter is lower. In field tests fuel consumption averaged 2 liters per meter drilled. (dependent on various operational parameters. Please ask your Atlas Copco representative for more details)

Optimized transportability

A single truck can carry both the compressor and the rig thanks to the DrillAir Y35’s short 4.1 meter frame, which helps to minimize transport expenses.

2 years warranty

The standard warranty covers parts within two years or 4,000 hours (whichever occurs first). Please ask your Atlas Copco representative for warranty conditions.

3 Layer protection

Three layer protection coating of all bodywork helps to minimize repainting costs. The top layer, a 100µm powder coat, creates a barrier against mechanical damage. The 100µm layer of primer protects from corrosion infiltrating under the coating. And in the event of coating damage, the steel is protected by a Zincor layer.

Higher residual value

The DrillAir range benefits from specifically designed features to ensure a higher residual value, hence decreasing depreciation expenses.

The compressor’s residual value is largely defined by the remaining lifetime of the engine at the moment of resale. Scania is well known for its excellent performance and durability with unique design features such as a built-in oil cleaner, saver ring and separate cylinder heads, all contributing to an extended service life and high uptime. The DrillAir Y35 complies with Stage V emission standards, so it will have a higher value than similar Stage IIIA or IIIB equipment in the years to come. Moveover, the DrillAir Y35 does not require a particulate filter, which means its remaining lifespan will not be a consideration when you resell the compressor.
