Rotary screw compressors with belt drive

Compact design with impressive performance

Kaeser rotary screw compressors with V-belt drive provide outstanding efficiency and reliability. They feature the energy-saving SIGMA profile rotor and a SIGMA CONTROL 2 (or, optionally, SIGMA CONTROL BASIC) controller. You can choose from four series with these technical parameters:

  • 3 to 30 hp
  • Pressure: 125, 160, or 217 psig
  • Flow rate: 9 – 143 cfm

All series are available as standard models but also with

  • Integrated refrigerated dryer for high compressed air quality and/or
  • Speed-controlled motor for a large flow rate control range. (SM, SK and AS series)

We will gladly help you determine which model is the perfect solution for you.

Your advantages

  • Highly-efficient power transmission:
    The quality drive belt with automatic tensioning device ensures consistent transmission efficiency and excellent drive system reliability over the entire service life.
  • Easy maintenance:
    The housing is easily opened. All components are logically arranged and easy to access. Maintenance is quick and simple.
  • Exceptionally quiet:
    The soundproofed housing reduces operational noise to a minimum. Normal conversation can take place right next to the compressor.
Low life cycle costs
Life-cycle costs

Our comprehensive approach to life cycle cost management: Superior efficiency, easy operation, service-friendliness, and a global service and consulting network with fast response times.
