Atlas Copco Introduces New Contractor Series of KT Compressors

Atlas Copco Compressors has developed a new line of portable piston compressors ideal for light industrial use, applications within the vehicle service market, as well as a wide range of construction applications. The new KT Range is a Contractor Series that provides compressed air in a portable package while offering incredible durability to withstand the daily wear-and-tear that hard-working professionals expect and demand from their equipment. 

“Providing dependable compressors for a diverse base of customers and industries remains our primary focus,” said Robert Eshelman, Vice President of the Industrial Air range for Atlas Copco in the U.S. “We developed these products using our time-tested and proven technology that complements what we believe is already one of the most expansive ranges on the market.”

The KT Range Contractor Series features seven new electric and gas-powered models, delivering up to 25.3 cfm at 100 psi, in a low-profile design complete with a semi-pneumatic wheel. Each model is made in the United States and ready for quick and easy distribution to customers.

Electric models range from 1.5 to 2 horsepower and include special features such as a start-stop pressure switch control, a fully enclosed belt guard, tank drains and a discharge valve. The gas-driven models provide additional power, ranging from 5.5 to 12.75 horsepower, and offer additional features beyond those included with the electric models, including engine slowdown (pilot valve) and low-oil level engine protection.

Atlas Copco’s Compressor Technique business area develops, manufactures, markets, and services oil-free and oil-injected stationary air compressors, portable air compressors, gas and process compressors, turbo expanders, electric power generators, air treatment equipment and air management systems. It also offers specialty rental services. It innovates for superior productivity in applications such as manufacturing, construction, and the process industry worldwide.
