Atlas Copco USA - AR Horizontal
Atlas Copco Compressors is launching the AR series, a new line of two-stage reciprocating piston compressors that maximize durability and dependability. Featuring a compact design, the AR series provides customers with an economical piston compressor option without compromising reliable delivery of compressed air.
The Atlas Copco AR series of air compressors feature a hybrid cast iron and aluminum design that deliver up to 7.5 horsepower; while the 10 horsepower design features a pump constructed entirely of cast iron.

“We’re finding that our customers are increasingly diversified in their operations and, accordingly, they require a wider variety of options to ensure that their air compressors continue to provide them with optimal performance,” said Robert Eshelman, vice president Industrial Air for Atlas Copco Compressors, LLC. “Our new AR compressor series continues to provide the reliability and performance that customers have come to expect from Atlas Copco.”

The AR compressor series is produced at Atlas Copco’s manufacturing facility in Rock Hill, S.C. The compact design of the AR series, with a range of 5 to 20 horsepower, allows more economical operations that produce 15.3 to 70 ACFM at pressures of up to 175 psig. And every model comes complete with a two-year warranty.

The AR series is ideal for use in workshops, automotive body shops and other light industrial applications. Design variations allow users additional flexibility with a variety of configurations that include horizontal or vertical tank mounts, a duplex horizontal tank mount, and a gas-driven tank mount. The block unit is available separately for OEM applications and can be combined with a choice of drivers.
