Atlas Copco introduces the XATS 900E

electric portable


Atlas Copco has launched the XATS 900E, an electric

portable compressor with the versatility to suit a wide

range of demanding applications. The new compressor

is equipped with a 160kW motor that is highly efficient

and quiet in operation.

As an energy-efficient alternative to traditional die-

sel-driven compressors, the XATS 900E delivers com-

pressed air from 7 to 10 bar (100 to 150 psi) with a flow

of up to 25m3/min (900cfm), while offering users the

advantages of reduced running costs and reduced re-

quirement for maintenance. Suitable for sites with a

ready supply of power, the XATS 900E is easy to install

on any surface as it requires no additional


The unit is up to 50% smaller and up to 30% lighter

than most comparable compressors, with a power-flex

frame that supports ease of movement, higher safety

and protection from spillage. Additionally, the corro-

sion-resistant canopy of the compressor is designed for

use in all weather conditions, without the need for ad-

ditional rooms and enclosures.

The electrically powered unit is enclosed in a silenced

acoustic canopy, with sound levels of 73db(A) at 7 me-

tres. This conforms to ISO9614-2 standards and makes

the unit suitable for working in urbanised areas and

confined spaces.

Compact, lightweight and easy to move, with out-

standing ruggedness and durability, the XATS 900E is an

excellent choice for rental fleets and customer sites.

The XATS 900E is designed to pro-

vide quality air solutions with an in-

built aftercooler and water separator

and can be fitted with optional down-

stream filtration to further enhance

the air quality. Also, the new electric

portable compressor features large door panels for easy

access and single side service procedures.

Ben Van Hove, Vice-President of Marketing in Atlas

Copco’s Portable Energy division, said:

“The launch of the XATS 900E opens up new

options for our customers to harness the power

of electric. It combines smart engineering,

proven technology and quality components. The

XATS 900E, is an outstanding choice when it

comes to setting up an efficient job site.”
