The XAS 950 has variable flow and pressure settings through the PACE technology. This results in a wide range of pressure and flow settings such as: 950 CFM at 100 psi, 900 CFM at 150 psi and 750 CFM at 200 psi.

The Atlas Copco Power Technique North America (AC) XAS 950 single-stage, oil-injected rotary screw type portable air compressor, powered by a liquid-cooled six-cylinder turbocharged Caterpillar C7.1 Tier IV Final diesel engine, offers simplified maintenance and cost savings by putting the operator in control.

Featuring new pressure adjusted through cognitive electronics (PACE) technology, the air compressor matches engine speed, power, and torque, with air demand, resulting in 15 to 20 percent fuel savings. Additionally, PACE increases the operating range with the ability to cover multiple applications with a single compressor, increasing the unit's versatility.

Some of the main applications for the new compressor size is geothermal drilling, horizontal directional drilling, sandblasting and shotcrete.

The new range was designed with overall size, operation and maintenance in mind. With a single axle, the unit offers best in class output for the size. Operating under 8,250 lbs., the machine is up to 33 percent lighter than competitor's compressors with similar output, according to the manufacturer.

"The XAS 950 is built around the principals of pressure and flow. The focus of the unit is putting the controls in the operator's hands thanks to the innovation and unique performance management solution, PACE," said Clayton Jones, product manager of large air at AC. "This air compressor delivers better performance in a smaller and lighter package. We believe it will be a game changer."

Environmentally friendly, the XAS 950 is equipped with a spillage-free frame. This helps to avoid oil, coolant or fuel spillage for 110 percent containment. It also is designed for easy access and serviceability to consumables inside of the machine, as well as a centralized drain system.

AC offers air compressor solutions from 110 up to 1,800 CFM and 100 to 508 PSI.
