Kaeser Compressors (Fredericksburg, Virginia) is extending its “Clunker to Kaeser” program, through which old, inefficient compressors can be traded for a new Kaeser air system. Based on the replacement compressor’s motor size, the company offers a rebate of $100 per horsepower to a maximum of $1,000 toward the purchase of a Kaeser AirCenter or Airtower. Any operational air compressor, qualifies, and “clunkers” can be kept to scrap for additional cash, the company says.
Both Airtowers and AirCenters combine a rotary screw compressor, storage tank and dryer in one package unit. Airtowers are available in 4, 5 and 7 ½-hp models and deliver as much as 28 cfm at pressures ranging from 80 to 217 psig. AirCenters are available with 3 to 50 hp and maximum working pressures ranging from 80 to 205 psig.
