Outstanding power and efficiency are paired with quiet operation and good manoeuvrability to make the Mobilair 17 from Kaeser the ideal compressor solution, wherever a compact portable powerhouse is required.
With a flow rate of 1.6 m3/min at 7-bar, the M 17 from Kaeser is capable of powering breakers, drills, saws, grinders, impact wrenches and even impact borers. In addition, the 7 bar version is perfect for powering pneumatically driven pipe inspection robots. For added flexibility, this highly versatile portable compressor is also available in a 15 bar version.
At the heart of every model lies a powerful, proprietary Kaeser screw compressor block equipped with the energy efficient Sigma Profile rotors. Developed by Kaeser and continuously enhanced ever since, the Kaeser Sigma Profile achieves power savings of up to 15% compared with conventional screw compressor block rotor profiles.
An air-cooled 4 stroke Honda petrol engine provides the necessary power via a maintenance free v-belt drive system. This ensures dependable power transmission between the engine, motor and screw compressor block.
The M 17 comes equipped with a generous 20 litre capacity fuel tank that enables uninterrupted operation during long work shifts, eliminating the need for frequent refuelling. A continuous air delivery control system precisely matches compressor performance to suit actual compressed air demand, which further reduces fuel consumption of these already highly efficient compressor units. The M 17 is also highly durable with a corrosion-proof rotation-sintered PE enclosure, which contributes to its remarkably quiet operation with a guaranteed sound power level of <97 dB (A).
The M 17 portable compressor from Kaeser is so compact and lightweight that it can be easily transported in any farm vehicle, or on the loading floor of a truck or Ute, leaving the vehicle’s tow coupling free for use.
