Atlas Copco features XRVS 1550+ high-pressure air compressor at Offshore Technology Conference


The XRVS 1550+ portable compressor offers variable pressure and flow settings withAtlas Copco’s DrillAirXpertTM system. The compressor is the latest addition to Atlas Copco’s line of high-pressure compressors and has been specially designed for demanding oil and gas projects from drilling to pipeline testing.


Atlas Copco’s new XRVS 1550+ is engineered to be one of the most versatile compressors in the industry and features feature proven, industry-leading technology that optimizes operating pressure to meet operator demands.

Atlas Copco is featuring the XRVS 1550+ May 4-7 at booth 2981 during the Offshore Technology Conference in Houston.
The XRVS 1550+ uses Atlas Copco’s proven DrillAirXpert system to ensure maximum flexibility for a wide range of applications and regions. The DrillAirXpert system has a fully variable pressure and flow setting capability. Completely eliminating the pneumatic regulating system instantly makes the compressor more efficient, saving fuel, increasing output and lowering the operator’s cost per project.
The XRVS 1550+ features the same base design, physical footprint and systems that are found on the Atlas Copco XRVS 1000+ to ensure maximum portability and flexibility at the job site.  Powered by a CAT C18TT, EPA-compliant Tier 2 engine and coupled with multiple pressure vessel certifications for regions, such as the U.S., Australia, and Canada, it is truly versatile in every aspect.     

“The XRVS 1550+ is the big brother to the well-respected XRVS 1000+, with greater flow and flexibility,” says Michael Sagermann, Atlas Copco Portable Energy business line manager. “The compressor is suitable for a large range of applications, such as supplying feed air to one of our Hurricane Boosters for oil and gas sites; high altitude exploration drilling; and for drilling deeper larger diameter holes.”
