Atlas Copco introduces XATS 1050 CD7 compressor

Compressor features new engine, air-end, cooling fan and controller.

Commerce City, Colo. April 26, 2011—Atlas Copco has introduced the XATS 1050 CD7 compressor. Replacing the XATS 950, the XATS 1050 CD7 features a new engine, air-end, cooling fan and controller.

The engine in the Atlas Copco XATS 1050 CD7 complies with the new emission standards that went into effect in the U.S., Canada, Japan and Europe in January 2011. The new standards are part of the U.S. EPA Nonroad Regulation Tier 4A and the EU Nonroad-Directive Stage IIIB (Tier 4A / Stage IIIB). This legislation mandates substantial decreases in the emission of particulate matter (PM) and nitrogen oxide (NOx) from off-road diesel engines, and Atlas Copco’s newest compressor meets the new standard.

The new air-end in the XATS 1050CD7 is designed to operate more efficiently than its predecessors. Preliminary testing of the new model indicates that it will significantly reduce fuel consumption. Fuel economy is also improved by the variable-speed cooling fan, which is designed to run only as needed rather than continually.

Emission control is built in to the new controller. Unlike some other units, no separate control area is necessary.
