The corner stones of the WorkPlace concept

Low noise

The noise level of the WorkPlace Air SystemTM is little more than that of a sewing machine

thanks to advanced design techniques and modern materials and components.

Outstanding performance

The WorkPlace Air SystemTM combines the most coveted screw element design with the most

advanced control system, resulting in more air for less power.

Complete integration

Both air treatment and condensate management equipment can be fully integrated into the

compressor canopy, reducing space and simplifying installation work.

Best customer choice

The WorkPlace Air SystemTM is available from 7.5-125hp, as either air or water cooled with a
wide range of operating pressure between 60-188 psig to meet any customer requirement.
The benefits of advanced technology

Total system control and monitoring

The unique Atlas Copco Elektronikon® control system not only optimizes the running of the

compressor, the air treatment and the condensate management equipment, but it also allows

total remote monitoring, control and protection.

Faster, less expensive and easier installation


The cost and complexity of the installation is minimized by integrating all necessary air and

condensate treatment equipment. This integration also eliminates the interconnecting piping

and dramatically reduces the footprint of the whole installation.

Outstanding reliability

The complete WorkPlace Air SystemTM range is designed, manufactured and tested in

accordance with ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 1217 ed. 3 annex C respectively. Each and every

unit is tested before leaving the factory, ensuring that the high expectations of today's industry

are not just met, but exceeded.

Reduced maintenance costs

The WorkPlace Air System is designed with maintenance costs in mind. Long service intervals

combined with a mechanical friendly layout, ensure low costs and minimal down time.

reliability, efficiency and full integration

1. Elektronikon®
1 Automatic electronic control and monitoring of the compressor
optimizes the operation for efficiency, reliability and ease of
maintenance.

2. Fan
Low speed radial fan provides a high cooling air flow
at extremely low noise levels.

3. Integral coolers
Compact coolers dimensioned to ensure ideal running
temperatures under all conditions and are easy to clean.

4. Multi-stage oil separator


Three-stage oil separation process yields a 2 ppm oil carry-over
for minimum contamination and maintenance.

12. Dryer bypass (optional)
The dryer bypass, which is conveniently piped to the edge
of the canopy, enables the compressor to operate even
when the dryer requires maintenance.

Total Air System Control
Elektronikon® - The superior choice

Atlas Copco’s patented Elektronikon® is an advanced


microprocessor based, real time operating system, which
allows comprehensive control and monitoring, through a
clear and simple user interface.

Total air system control

Elektronikon® goes beyond the traditional boundaries of

a compressor controller. Signals from related equipment, such as

coolers, filters or dryers can be sent back to the Elektronikon®,

which can then be configured to display readings or even take

certain actions based on the incoming signal.

A full complement of digital input and output signals facilitates

simple remote control.

Built in multi-compressor sequencer


Integrated service scheduler

Integrated filtration removes both particles and oil from

the air, eliminating the risk of damage to equipment and

contamination of the final product.

The integration of a refrigerant dryer eliminates virtually

all water from the system and prevents corrosion in pipes,

tools and instruments.

An integrated heatless desiccant dryer, complete with

filtration, provides process quality air for the most

demanding applications. Complete with dewpoint

dependant switching control as standard, the units are

extremely energy efficient, ensuring maximum air for

minimum power.

Condensate quality must meet legal measurements.

The optional OSD oil-water separator raises the

condensate quality to surpass legal requirements, so

there is no need to worry about discharging oil

contaminated condensate.
