CPVS 150 to 340 HP Screw Air Compressors – Chicago Pneumatic

Our CPVS gearbox driven rotary screw compressors offer the highest up-time ensuring long and easy operation at the lowest operation costs.

CPVS ranges offer a flexible choice of compressors from 150-340. The compressors are gearbox driven variable speed. They have been designed to guarantee the highest uptime ensuring long and easy operation at the lowest operation costs.

How much energy could you save in your existing compressor installation?
Why invest in CPVS? Why variable speed compressors?

Energy costs represent about 70% of the total operating cost of your compressor over a 5-year period. Therefore reducing the energy consumption of your compressed air installation should be a major focus to ensure the lowest cost of ownership.

Contact us for an energy audit. We will measure the air demand and energy consumption of your existing installation and generate a detailed report at the end. Based on your specific situation we can simulate and show how much your energy costs would reduce with a CPVS.

A load/unload compressor delivers a constant air capacity. In case the set pressure is reached, the compressor turns into unload mode (inlet valve controlled). The compressor starts up the same routine as soon as the pressure value drops down a predefined level.

A frequency inverted compressor, however, has a working pattern with lower peaks and a smooth air profile. Due to a frequency inverter the compressor never switched load/unload, as the number of rotations adapts itself to the energy consumption. This results in the compressor transferring all energy consumed into the process to compress air, which is very cost efficient.

CPVS can be equipped with an IVR highly efficient frequency converter with low harmonic distortion built-in in the canopy in a well-ventilated housing. In case of a highly fluctuating consumptions saving over 30% compared to a fixed speed equivalent can be achieved!
