Talk to an expert The basics of buying a compressor

Your gateway to the world of compressed air - find what you need:

Atlas Copco Compressors is a leading manufacturer of energy efficient industrial air compressors, blowers, nitrogen and oxygen generators.

We always thrive to reduce the carbon foot-print further and come up with innovative solutions that help you optimise the way you use your air compressor systems as well as save you energy.

Our innovative compressed air solutions include super-efficient variable speed driven air compressors, Class 0 oil-free compressors, energy saving air blowers, Smartlink compressor monitoring systems , aluminium and stainless steel compressed air pipework, nitrogen and oxygen generators, as well as compressor parts and service for all rotating equipment.

Why buy an Atlas Copco compressor?

Simply put, we understand that energy consumption, which represents around 80% of the total lifecycle cost of compressed air systems, is one of your main pain points and we invest in innovative solutions to lower your energy bills.

Why does investing in energy efficient air compressor systems always pay off?

Air compressors generate heat energy that can be harnessed for other purposes in the operating environment. For instance, waste heat from the compressor can be recycled as hot water which could be used within certain manufacturing processes, or it could be redirected into the heating or hot water system of the building.

How to size your compressed air system correctly?

You should specify your compressed air system by flow and pressure – not KW or horsepower. When correctly matched in terms of pressure and flow, compressed air equipment can offer:



  • Reduced specific energy
  • Improved productivity 
  • Lower lifecycle costs

Why is the kW power rating of a compressor’s motor not enough to specify a new compressor?

Because there are a number of pressure/flow variants within each air compressor kW category. E.g. Atlas Copco has four models in the 11 kW range that represent a 30% differential in flow rate (from 28.7 l/s to 35.8 l/s at 7 bar.g) and over 32% difference in the unit’s purchase price!

These are a few essential rules when choosing a new air compressor:

Conduct an air audit

Assess present and future needs by first checking out the existing compressed air systems from air output to point of use, with a thorough air audit.

Match the air demand

Do not rely solely on the stated motor power rating to match the air compressor performance to the process air demand.

Pressure + flow = energy = cost

Start with the air pressure and flow requirement and then find the best fit in terms of drive motor power. Always keep in mind: pressure + flow = energy = cost.

Air quality

What type of air quality do you need? Is an oil-injected compressor plus filtration sufficient for your application or do you need a genuine oil-free compressor?
