ATLAS Copco have developed a new solution to help reduce the cost of fuel consumption of their compressors. “Since the largest cost associated with owning a compressor in the drilling industry (or most other industries for that matter) is fuel consumption, the company decided to focus its efforts on improving fuel efficiency,” says André van der Heyde, business line manager for Atlas Copco Portable Air division. The new Fuel Xpert intelligently regulates the engine speed and air intake of the compressor in order to optimise fuel consumption. Atlas Copco claim to offer more than 10 per cent improved economy compared with competitive compressors at partial load. The Fuel Xpert fuel savings solution will be available on all Atlas Copco high capacity and high pressure compressors.
