Kaeser Compressors has introduced its latest range of portable compressors designed for powerful, quiet and efficient performance.

Kaeser’s new M 13 and M 17 Mobilair portable compressors are compact in design and meet the needs of users with smaller air requirements. Part of the proven Mobilair range of portable compressors from Kaeser, the new M 13 and M 17 models are ideal for powering breakers, drills, saws, grinders and impact wrenches with free air delivery from just 0.85m³. These compressors are particularly suited for powering horizontal impact borers found in the construction industry.

Key features of the new Mobilair portable compressors include air-cooled, 4-stroke Honda petrol engine driving the screw compressor unit via a maintenance-free V-belt drive system; generous 20-litre capacity fuel tank enabling uninterrupted operation during long work shifts and eliminating the need for frequent refuelling; continuous air delivery control system precisely matching compressor performance to suit actual compressed air demand, further reducing fuel consumption; and innovative corrosion- and scratch-resistant sound enclosure made from rotation-sintered polyethylene to guarantee exceptionally low sound levels.

The compact and lightweight Kaeser compressors can be easily transported in any delivery vehicle, or on the loading floor of a truck. The compressor can also be equipped with an external compressed air after-cooler for applications that may require cool and condensate-free compressed air. The after-cooler is installed in a frame equipped with fixed connections for compressed air, condensate return and electrical power (12 V supply from compressor) to drive the after-cooler fan. Accumulating condensate is vaporised by the hot engine exhaust.

Handling and maintenance have been simplified in the Mobilair M 13 and M 17 portable compressors from Kaeser. Manoeuvrability is made simple thanks to the long handle, rugged wheels with pneumatic tyres, four convenient lifting-lugs and a counter-sunk crane eye, while maintenance is easily carried out with the wide-opening sound enclosure enabling excellent component accessibility.

Manufactured at Kaeser’s state-of-the-art production facility located in Coburg, Germany, the Mobilair M 13 and M 17 are available with a 15.5 kW drive motor, standard working pressures from 7 to 15 bar, and free air deliveries from 0.85 to 1.6 m³/min.
