Atlas Copco’s new piston compressors deliver a winning combination of performance and efficiency


Two-stage splash and pressure-lubricated versions available from 5-30 horsepower

Atlas Copco Compressors has introduced two new piston compressor product ranges that deliver outstanding performance matched with maximum efficiency. Capitalizing on a combination of computer-aided design, computer-controlled machining processes and heavy duty cast iron construction, the new LS and LP Series two-stage compressors deliver up to 175 psig with 24/7 reliability.

“Our close customer relationships have allowed us to gain extensive knowledge of a wide variety of processes, needs and objectives,” said Robert Eshelman, VP and Business Line Manager for Atlas Copco’s U.S. Industrial Air Division. “This knowledge gives us the ability to produce compressed air solutions that meet market expectations and deliver performance that generates a positive impact on our customers’ operations.”

The LS Series two-stage splash-lubricated compressor combines a one-piece aluminum head, which optimizes strength and dissipates heat, with an innovative valve design that provides outstanding volumetric efficiency. These features make the LS Standard ideal for industrial, automotive and commercial applications requiring up to 175 psig.

The LP Series two-stage pressure-lubricated compressor is engineered to deliver reliable results for applications that demand a continuous flow of compressed air. It produces 175 psig, is rated at 100 percent duty cycle and features a stainless steel valve design that delivers the highest volumetric efficiency in the marketplace. These features ensure high reliability and energy savings for the most demanding industrial, automotive and commercial applications.

With industry-leading CFM per brake horsepower, both the LS and LP Series compressors are available in a full-range of horsepower increments from 5-30 horsepower. Both the LS and LP Series compressors are virtually maintenance free, with easily accessible components.
