Ingersoll Rand, a global leader in compressed air and gas systems and services, power tools, material handling, and fluid management equipment, recently debuted the new UP6S Series 15-30 hp fixed speed rotary screw compressor. The UP6S Series builds on Ingersoll Rand’s commitment to reliability by adding several standard features to the unit, such as Progressive Adaptive Control™ (PAC) protection, O-ring face seals to reduce leak points, and a Totally Enclosed Fan Cooled (TEFC) motor.

The unit’s TEFC design reduces the risk of particulates entering the motor, while also keeping it cool, so the compressor can be used in harsh environments. Meanwhile, its NEMA® Type 4 rating allows it to be used indoors or outdoors, and the new Tri-Voltage motor enables it to adapt to a variety of applications. These features make the UP6S ideal for powering pneumatic tools and equipment of many types, from saws and spray painting guns, to hoists and other tools, for use in industries from woodworking, to metalworking and brewing, to automotive repair.

“We at Ingersoll Rand understand the expectation of quality our customers have when purchasing a compressor,” said Jason Grizzi, channel marketing leader, Ingersoll Rand Compressed Air Systems and Services in North America. “The new UP6S Series builds on our legacy of dependability with its robust design that offers reliable operation across a number of applications.”

The airend, interconnecting piping and integral separation system are features of the UP6S Series 15-30 hp, which increase performance, reliability and ease of service. A high-efficiency compression module and O-ring face seals eliminate leaks and pressure loss. The UP6S Series also features spin-on filtration and separator cartridges to allow for easy maintenance.

The compressor features a new Xe-70M controller that comes standard and makes operating the UP6S easier with simple diagnostics and remote start and stop access capabilities. The intuitive user interface and PAC software adapts and continuously monitors key operations, such as element conditions and system parameters to maintain up-time and increase bearing life.
