Oil-free reciprocating piston compressors

LF Snow: Oil-free piston compressor for snow making, 1.5-7.5 kW / 2-10 hp

Atlas Copco LF-Snow oil-free piston compressors are designed specifically for the snow-making industry. The LF-Snow provides reliable, continuous operation with minimum maintenance. The use of high-quality materials and an innovative design make the units suitable for operation in the extreme conditions encountered at the ski slope.

Customer benefits

  • High reliability – The LF-Snow can operate without interruption in snow-making applications. A specially designed air inlet and outlet system allows trouble-free operation without compressor freeze-up in extremely low ambient temperatures. This also avoids ingress of snow-moisture into the compression system during periods of heavy snow fall. Direct driven operation by an IP55 electric motor gives an extended lifetime.
  • Minimum maintenance – Proven industrial components enable trouble-free operation while 100% oil-free use reduces servicing requirements.
  • Environmentally friendly – An LF piston compressor is completely oil-free and therefore beneficial for the environment. You also avoid the need for oil-refilling during operation in isolated locations.
  • High efficiency – Piston compressors are the most economical way to produce compressed air for smaller air demands, due to minimum specific energy required, low maintenance, long lifetime and simple usage.
