Ingersoll-Rand Nirvana Variable Speed Air Compressors

Variable speed air compressors reduce energy costs by delivering only the air you need. Fixed speed compressors fill the tank with more air than needed then turn off, when the pressure drops too low they turn back on. Starting an air compressor takes a lot of energy. Many incentives such as tax rebates are offered from governments, municipalities and the like because of the energy savings gained from this technology.

The variable speed function responds to fluctuation in your system by a close controlled system pressure, Nirvana adjusts its compressed air output to achieve the highest efficiency for your operation. This avoids wasted energy caused by excessive pressure band or unloaded running, allowing you to: Achieve higher productivity from your air system, Maintain optimum performance from the equipment you operate, and save up to 35% energy cost.


Variable Speed Drive Benefits

Nirvana control is delivered by a variable speed drive. The Nirvana 7.5-40 hp VSD maintains a close controlled system pressure, automatically adjusting its output to achieve the highest efficiency for your operation. This avoids wasted energy caused by excessive pressure band or unloaded running. You will achieve higher productivity from your air system, Maintain optimum performance from the equipment you operate, and save up to 35% energy cost

Variable speed compressor benefits

Nirvana will operate effectively, maintaining a stable pressure between maximum capacity at full power down to as little as 30% of its output before turning off. It is also the only compressor that allows the owner to upgrade the drive to the next largest horsepower. The Nirvana 20-40 hp compressor also allows the user to pick the optimal operating pressure between 65-150 psig in one standard machine, while the Nirvana 7.5-15 hp compressor utilizes an IntelliKey to maximize performance when pressure is changed.
