Save on energy and maintenance

The Elekronikon® control unit gives a detailed overview of your operational status. The horizontal skid design enables quick and easy maintenance.

For our customers’ benefit, P compressors are specially designed to simplify maintenance on-site, helping to reduce your costs:

  • Simple from the start: maximum standardization of components, including cylinders, valves, and packings, throughout the range for simpler spare parts management, faster deliveries, and reducing your costs.
  • Easy access to all parts: horizontal layout for full accessibility to all components at an optimal height, particularly the cylinder heads and valves.
  • Easy spare part ordering: a clear overview of all parts allows for quick and safe ordering of the components needed. Quick deliveries make sure you can keep stock to a minimum.

Thanks to the Elektronikon® control unit, you can tailor the air pressure to your specific needs. This helps reducing energy costs and increasing your overall operating efficiency.

24 hours reliable operation and guaranteed air purity

P oil free compressors are built to operate round the clock for all your oil-free heavy duty applications.

Thanks to 3 and 4 compression stages (with pressure ratios up to 42 bar(e) ), the units can perform in the most stringent environments. The anti-vibration mounts, excellent cooling and low inter-stage temperatures, and elimination of friction load increases the lifetime of the machines and makes them your reliable source of oil-free high pressure air.

ISO 8573-1 Class 0 certified means no oil contamination will effect your end product and guarantee air purity.
The reciprocating compressors are delivered on a single skid for easy and safe maintenance.

Broad range of industrial applications

PET bottle production

High Pressure oil-free performance

For PET bottle production, the total absence of oil or pollutants in process air is critical. Atlas Copco’s P compressors not only deliver high-quality air; they offer the reliability, efficiency and high productivity you expect from your equipment.

Adapting pressure to save energy in PET bottle production

In compressor room management in PET bottle production, the required air pressure changes, depending on the size and shape of the bottles being produced. You can adjust the pressure with the Elektronikon® controller to the required value between 25 bar (362 psig) and 42 bar (580 psig) to suit the demand. This allows you to optimize energy usage and drive down energy costs.

PET bottles

Food and non-food sectors

Filling a wide variety of requirement

High-pressure oil-free air is used in many sectors, such as PET containers for pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, home care products and food and solar energy and electronics. With their steady oil-free air flow, our P compressors are best equipped to serve these markets.



High pressure applications in aeronautics

High-pressure that can be trusted

Test benches in the aeronautic industry require the best compressed air technology available. With their sturdy construction and trusted delivery of high-pressure oil-free air, P compressors are the ideal solution for these environments.

Hydro power

Superior technology as a first choice

Hydro electricity is a renewable source of energy with rapid rate of growth worldwide. The sturdiness and uptime operation of the P compressors make them the first choice in the process of turbine dewatering and hydraulic circuit pressurizing


Product features

Optimal lifetime
Advanced design reduces friction load. Excellent cooling and low inter-stage temperatures increase the lifetime of the machines.
Clean air
Eliminate the risk of oil contamination to your process and minimize the risk of operational downtime with P-compressors that are ISO 8573-1 Class 0 certified.
Keeping installation costs to a minimum
Every P compressor is delivered fully assembled. With no reassembly of components on site, installation is fast, straightforward, safe and without any unwelcome surprises. P compressors can be fixed to a suitable industrial floor using chemical bolts. This eliminates skid vibrations and preserves the motor and mechanical parts.
