Atlas Copco's XAS 90 air compressor is designed for utility and pneumatic-tool applications demanding as much as 88 cubic feet per minute of air power.
Atlas Copco’s HardHat canopy, which is made of highly durable, weather-resistant polyethylene, protects the compressor’s 24-horsepower Kubota diesel engine from dust and debris. The canopy also is designed to resist corrosion and fading.
In addition to the canopy, a two-stage air intake filter with service indicator is designed to prevent dust and dirt from flowing into the engine and, ultimately, the compressor. Plus, the service indicator alerts the operator when the filter needs changing.
The engine meets Tier 4 Final emission standards without requiring any exhaust aftertreatment components or filters. The compressor is designed to optimize fuel consumption with its stepless, fully automatic regulator. The regulator continuously adjusts the engine’s speed to accommodate air demand.
The compressor’s spillage-free frame is designed to contain 100 percent of the unit’s fluids if a leak occurs.
The XAS 90 can navigate through narrow, cramped workspaces thanks to its small footprint. The compressor requires less than 40 square feet of working space, which can give operators more space to move around the compressor while using a pneumatic tool. Its small footprint is designed for storage in a garage or rental yard.
The 1,165-pound compressor is mounted to a single-axle trailer for maximum portability; it can even be towed by small automobiles. The trailer axle can be removed to accommodate a support frame that can be mounted to a truck bed, trailer or any other platform. Additionally, the XAS 90’s controls are grouped on a single panel to provide quick, hassle-free operation.
Atlas Copco offers a wide range of optional features for the compressor, including wheel chocks, a loose ball coupling and an Occupational Safety and Health Administration-rated valve that automatically shuts off the air flow if a surge occurs, which prevents a loose hose from whipping and minimizes the risk of injuries.
