Pilot Air manufactures rotary screw air compressors for the Australian market. Customised to meet the specifications of industrial and commercial customers, our Australian-manufactured range of rotary screw air compressors has been leading the market for over 40 years.
For many businesses, a 24-hour operating cycle is the norm. The days are long, the demand is high, and often, the conditions can be unrelenting.
Aussie industrial and commercial industries require workhorse machinery. It is one of many reasons industrial customers turn to Pilot Air for their air compressor needs.
Rotary screw air compressors offer a constant supply of compressed air, making them the ideal solution for powering tools, machinery and pneumatic systems. With fewer wearing parts than reciprocating air compressors, the reduced maintenance requirements lead to a longer service life. Additionally, they often operate at lower temperatures, leading to less wear and tear on components.
Energy efficiency with performance
Energy efficiency is an essential element of any infrastructure investment decision. Modern industry demands machinery designed to perform at its optimum while reducing its energy running costs and greenhouse gas emissions. Pilot Air has resolved this issue with its latest two-stage design.
The ALTA-TEC series redefines efficiency, reliability and energy savings.
The continuous investment in research and development has delivered the highly acclaimed ALTA-TEC series, already a leading-edge product in the industrial market, by introducing a two stage rotary screw design.
Permanent magnet motors (with IE4 efficiency class – super premium efficiency), combined with our direct transmission system and optimised controls in the form of the new and highly advanced Login electronic controller, ensure cutting edge efficiency and energy savings.
These new and innovative technologies, combined with the employment of our latest generation air-ends, has allowed us to build the most advanced, quiet, reliable and efficient compressor available.
The inverter, pre-installed in the compressor’s electrical panel, dynamically regulates the speed of the electric motor and therefore the speed of the air-end, continuously adjusting the delivered air flow to the system’s real-time compressed air requirements. This also eliminates current surges, thanks to the soft start-up, and drastically reduces operating cycles avoiding unnecessary no-load operation, avoiding significant energy wastage and reducing energy costs.
Investing now for the future
Rotary screw compressors have a long life cycle compared to reciprocating models. At Pilot Air, we have introduced technological advancements to ensure the infrastructure not only performs at the highest levels but will continue to meet demand and digital integration well into the future.
The new ‘Login’ controller features advanced software capabilities to strengthen diagnostic functions, guaranteeing excellent performance in all conditions. Login provides additional facilities, including remote control and multi-compressor management.
All of the K-MAX’s functions are centrally managed with constant monitoring of the operation of the compressor ensuring efficient and reliable operation of the machine in all conditions, with customised functions to suit any application.
The ‘ISC’ system simultaneously connects up to eight different compressors (fixed and/or variable speed combinations), with ‘master-slave’ logic. The system is also compatible with other compressors not equipped with Login by using the optional modules suitable for specific compressors.
It makes sense to invest in high-performance, energy-efficient compressed air infrastructure that has built-in technology to grow as your business grows, without the need for continued overhaul.
Our team is technically qualified to deliver scalable solutions that enable businesses to plan and forecast with certainty. We are tightly integrated, with digital natives and advanced problem solvers who understand business systems and the importance of working with the operation to service the demands of their particular operation fully.
