- Soundproofed W version fully watercooled: it cools oil and air entirely with water and is suitable for environments where the heat produced by the compression process is particularly complex to dissipate.
- Soundproofed R version with heat recovery kit: recovers the heat produced during the compressor's operation and makes it available for heating water for industrial or domestic use.
Equipped with IE3 efficiency class electric motor, Maxima 160 series compressors ensure an energy consumption per m³/min of air among the lowest in their category. The low rotation speed of the air end (only 1.000 rpm at 50 Hz) and the 1:1 direct coupling between the electric motor and the compressor allow energy savings of more than 15% compared to other rotary compressors.
This solution starts the motor progressively, thus drastically reducing the power used during this particular phase. Limiting the absorption means reducing electrical and mechanical stress of the machine and the system, and reducing energy consumption.
Dual Speed Cooling
A dual speed electric fan that senses heat changes ensures constant internal compressor temperature, by increasing or decreasing the cooling air flow.
Simple, Economical Maintenance
Maintenance is limited to changing the oil at scheduled intervals, cleaning or changing the air filter and cleaning the radiator. The absence of rolling bearings contributes significantly to reducing maintenance costs.
These costs are however low because the vanes, rotor and stator have an almost unlimited life if proper maintenance is performed. Over 100,000 hours of operation are guaranteed without the need to replace the compression unit.
Compact Design and Silent Operation
The compact design and small footprint allow installation even in confined spaces. Large hinged doors and easily removable panels allow complete accessibility for all maintenance and service operations. The base is equipped with openings that permit easy lifting and handling.
Mattei air compressors are coated with epoxy powders, resistant to both corrosion and scratches. They are also coated inside with abundant soundproofing material.
The 99% efficient filtration system ensures quality compressed air for every application, while the special multi-stage oil separation, with primary oil separation and secondary basket air-oil separator guarantees an unrivalled residual oil content in the air.
Maxima 160 compressors are equipped with the exclusive Maestro XS electronic controller that makes it possible to control, monitor and program the compressor's operation. The unit can also be controlled remotely via a PC connection.
