The smallest models in the Mobilair portable compressor range from Kaeser, the “M13” and “M17”, combine outstanding power and efficiency with quiet operation and exceptional manoeuvrability. Furthermore, the 15 bar maximum working pressure of the “M17” makes this compact powerhouse the ideal choice for trenchless laying of glass fibre cables.
An air-cooled, 4-stroke Honda petrol engine drives the screw compressor unit via a maintenance-free V-belt drive system. The M13 and M17 are also equipped with a generous 20-litre capacity fuel tank that enables uninterrupted operation during long work shifts and eliminates 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.
