The PM2 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 PM2’s goal is to keep the compressor continually on load and avoid running time offload. PM2 compressors have a wide variable range of 40-100%, making them suitable for multiple applications, resulting in significant energy savings and minimising CO2 emissions.
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 PM2 variable speed ensures that the starting current never exceeds the rated value.
A simple flip-top design means that all components are accessible for maintenance.
The Work Health and Safety Code of Practice for managing noise at work states that 85dB(A) is an acceptable noise level for 8 hours continuous exposure. From 67-71dB(A), the Westair SCR PMSeries is therefore quiet and perfect for maintaining a safe workplace.
The unique flip-top design minimises the space required around the compressor.
