The XK series of truck mounted 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 truck mounted 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 has class leading low discharge outlet temperatures making it the perfect machine for discharging products that are sensitive to high temperatures.
A simple service, carried out every 12 months allows for your vehicle downtime to be kept to a minimum, ensuring that your machines can be operating at 100% efficiency, year round.
Our small size and light build results in greater operational efficiency through weight saving and a simplified drive method, meaning the XK is suitable for various chassis configurations.
Our XK series are built to be oil free and contactless. An air gap between compressor gearbox and airend ensures that absolutely no oil can enter into the compressor’s airflow, meaning your critical product remains oil and contaminant free.
The XK series offer variable flow rate, depending on what your application demands. We offer both the XK12 and XK18 to ensure that whatever your application demands, Gardner Denver Transport has the solutions you require.
