The APM series works by ramping up and down to coincide with your air demands, supplying only the amount of air and constant pressure needed. Unlike fixed-speed compressors, the SCR APM’s goal is to keep the compressor continually on load and avoid running time offload. APM compressors have a wide variable range, making them suitable for multiple applications, resulting in significant energy savings and minimising CO2 emissions.
The Inovance VSD operates both the main permanent magnet motor and the fan motor for optimal energy savings. Setting a constant temperature with the fan motor inverter control ensures the best lubrication performance and prevents high-temperature trips.
Soft-start system reduces the electric current during start-up
On start-up, traditional fixed-speed compressors, with direct online or star-delta starters, can draw up to 3.5 times their full load current. The soft-start technology on the APM variable speed ensures that the starting current never exceeds the rated value.
The unique flip-top design minimises the space required around the compressor.
