The AS1101 Powerex simplex air compressor has been designed and tested to meet the most demanding specifications in the pneumatic climate control industry. These systems are specifically engineered to provide a reliable source of compressed air to power pneumatic systems where the quality of the air is critical.
Powerex uses their LPS010A reciprocating pump with the AS1101. This pump has precision honed cylinders and lap joint rings to provide the lowest oil carryover in the industry. The oil carryover rate is less than 2ppm which is the lowest you can achieve from an oil injected compressor. A fan type flywheel provides cooling across the pump fins to lower operating temperatures and increase the lifespan on your system. The motor is a 1750 RPM low speed motor. This generates less heat for an increased life as well. The motor pulley and pump flywheel are conclosed in an OSHA compliant beltguard.
The AS1101 includes as 115v magnetic motor starter in a NEMA 1 enclosure with overload protection. The pressure switch is pre installed and wired to turn the compressor on at 80psi and off at 100psi. A 115v automatic tank drain is pre-installed on the bottom of the receiver tank to remove moisture automatically from the tank.
If you are looking for one of the highest quality climate control air compressors on the market the Powerex 1hp AS1101 is the top choice for the amount of air displaced. AS1101 refers to the main compressor model itself. The -5 in the part number signifies this is a 115volt compressor with motor starter includeded and -2 indicates and electronic auto tank drain is pre-installed.
