Atlas Copco XRVS 1550  Air Compressor

Atlas Copco XRVS 1550 Air Compressor


The Atlas Copco XRVS 1550 is a two-stage, oil-injected, rotary screw type air compressor, powered by a liquid-cooled, six-cylinder twinturbocharged diesel engine.
The unit consists of one low pressure and one high-pressure air end, diesel engine, cooling circuit, air/oil separation and control
systems - all enclosed within a sound dampened powder coated enclosure.
A range of undercarriage formats, factory and locally installed options are available.
Special attention has been given to the overall product quality, user-friendliness, ease of serviceability, and economical operation to ensure best in class cost of ownership.


Stop compressing air – start controlling it!

The Smart Air Xc4004 controller features the latest innovations. We believe a controller should put you in complete control, while being intuitive, and most importantly easy to use and navigate.

Smart controls also protect your investment: improve your efficiency while decreasing the operating costs of your equipment through advanced insights.

Advanced features:

  • Smart user interface with key parameters at first sight.
  • Mirror application for remote control.
  • Audible, clear warning system for any deviations.
  • Robust design which resists water and dust (IP67 rated).

No surprises:

Pressure gauge, running hours, fuel levels are always in plain sight, without toggling. Clear warning and alarm codes will clearly notify you in case of problems.

The controller will tell you when maintenance is due. If something goes wrong, alarms will notify you audibly and visually. And if something goes critically wrong, the controller will shut down the compressor and protect your investment.



Engine: Caterpillar C18 ACERT

Caterpillar C18 Tier 4 Final, twin turbocharged, six-cylinder, liquid-cooled diesel engine provides ample power to operate the compressor continuously at full load. Meats US EPA and Environment Canada Tier 4 Final exhaust legislations. The US EPA engine family is “KCPXL18.1HXF”. Engine output at rated speed, in accordance to SAE Standard, is 755 Bhp at 1800 rpm, as limited by the engine ECU. The engine has the capability to start the compressor to -13°F (-25°C) with standard 1500 W block heater and standard CAT ether start. The 240 Gal (909L) fuel tank is sufficiently sized to operate the unit for a minimum of 7.75 hours at the full load condition. External fuel connections with a 3 way valve are standard on the unit.

Compressor Element

The DrillAir XRVS 1550 CD compressor utilizes a combination of Atlas Copco C190 and J34 element and are driven from the Caterpillar diesel engine. Inlet air is filtered through a heavy duty air filter.
