The XK series of automotive screw compressors offer a robust, high flow, oil free, contactless, low maintenance solution, designed for the contaminant free discharge of a wide range of dry bulk product types. Our XK12 is designed for efficient discharge of high density powder products, such as cement, while our XK18 is a multipurpose compressor, offering consistent discharge of multiple granular materials. The XK compressors are manufactured to operate at a constant 2 bar tank pressure to ensure an optimum discharge time.
The compact shape and size of the XK compressor make it ideal for mounting inside the chassis on most vehicles to enable low cost direct PTO driving, meaning a simpler installation process. A through shaft allows clockwise or anticlockwise input drive rotation with mounting points on either side of the automotive compressor to provide further flexibility.
Unique Torque limiting coupling that fits directly onto the XK drive shaft is specially designed to protect the gearbox PTO from overloading and causing any potential damage.
The XK series can be driven hydraulically, via prop shaft, or coupled to electric motor. A wide range of installation options gives you the flexibility to run your vehicle exactly as you need it.
Every machine is supplied with a commissioning filter, which is removed after a vigorous test procedure on the vehicle.
The XK12/18 are supplied with a 2.5 & 2.2 bar relief valve, respectively, to protect the machines from over pressurization. Other ancillaries include air inlet filter, check valve and flange pack, as well as multiple silencer options.
The XK Compressor range is optimised for Dry Bulk applications. The high flow capacity, compact size and lightweight design allow for installation where space is limited and reliability essential. This oil free screw compressor is suited for the following applications:
