The R-Series 200-250kW rotary screw air compressor reduces energy cost by approximately 10 per cent for large manufacturing facilities.
Ingersoll Rand, a global leader in compression technologies and services, introduced new models to its line of next-generation R-Series oil-flooded rotary screw air compressors, which provide a more energy-efficient solution for customers with high capacity air requirements. The RS200 to RS250 models rotary screw air compressor will reduce energy cost by approximately 10 per cent for large manufacturing facilities.
The RS200 to RS250 models are available with the new, state-of-the-art single-stage airend, or the two-stage airend that increases airflow by up to 16 per cent. The new fixed-speed models are 10 percent more efficient compared to legacy products, while the variable speed option is up to 35 percent more efficient compared to the industry average.
Commenting on the launch, Amar Kaul, Chairman and Managing Director, Ingersoll Rand India Limited, said, “Around the world, businesses turn to Ingersoll Rand to redefine reliability and efficiency. The next generation R-series will help our customers do just that by delivering world class efficiency, increase uptime and deliver the right solution for operational excellence. The new series will enable our customers in India to be more competitive in the global environment by boosting their productivity with a state of the art airend that delivers as much as 15 per cent improved efficiency and 16 per cent greater airflow capacity. The IE3 premium efficiency motor will help deliver significant energy savings and the optional variable speed drive (VSD) will further decrease energy demands. With the launch of next generation R-Series, we continue to push the edge of innovation to help our customers achieve real business results, including cost reductions and lower total cost of ownership.”
“The ability for these compressors to deliver outstanding efficiency without compromising reliability meets the increasing demands of industries to increase productivity while reducing energy use,” said Kevin Kosobud, Portfolio Leader, Oil Flooded Compressors for Compression Technologies and Services at Ingersoll Rand.
“Our Next-Generation R-Series RS200 to RS250 models help customers increase overall system reliability and decrease their total cost of ownership with new state-of-the-art features and performance enhancements that save them tens of thousands of rupees.”
Ingersoll Rand has added these models to the Next Generation R-Series portfolio allowing customers who run 24 x 7 and rely on large amounts of compressed air to have equipment that is as reliable as their demand. According to internal testing, efficiency and design improvements on some of the high capacity compressors deliver up to Rs 23.4 lakh energy cost savings over a two-year period per compressor compared to previous models.
At the core of every Ingersoll Rand Next Generation R-Series compressor is an airend that is specifically designed to improve overall system efficiency. In addition to the enhanced single-stage airend, the RS200 to RS250 models are also available with the new two-stage airend. This two-stage airend is the most efficient airend available today.
