RSCRV Series VSD (Variable Speed Drive)

PneuTech’s RSCRV and RSCRPM Series variable speed drive rotary screw compressors have achieved well-deserved renown in the market place for their unparalleled performance, energy saving efficiencies and long-term reliability.  The flagship PM screw series bring a new generation of power saving benefits to the VSD compressor group, with cutting edge and proven engineering processes.

RSCRV Series VSD (Variable Speed Drive)

The Pneutech RSCRV series VSD (variable speed drive) rotary screw compressors will bring you substantial energy savings with the result of significantly lowering your electricity account by up to 40%. VSD technology will also increase the working lifetime of the rotary screw compressor - by reducing the working load and unnecessary wear and tear.

The new Permanent Magnet (PM) rotary screw compressors (available up to 75kW) bring further efficiencies to your factory, by more accurately matching air supply (and thus power costs) to the demand, with as little as 60 seconds turn-down time.  With the PneuTech PM series, further power savings can be achieved, even as high as 60% in some cases!

Both the standard VSD and the PM series are direct-drive compressors with no gearing or transmission loss.

How much does it cost?

As a general rule, recommended trade price for the Pneutech RSCR variable speed & permanent magnet compressors range from $1,115 to $1,340 per kW up to 55 kW models and $925 to $1,090 per kW for larger models.   Variances due to seasonal promotions, supplier price fluctuations, exchange rates and current stock levels can reduce this down to $810 to $980 per kW up to 55 kW models and $625 to $750 per kW for larger models. 


Most installations also require a refrigerated dryer, filtration and air receivers - Call us today for a special proposal!

What is the delivery time frame?

Pneutech RSCR permanent magnet compressors from 22 kW to 37 kW are usually available available ex stock in New Zealand, and larger sizes are available on indent.  Call us 0800-555-018 to check availability.   You should allow  1-5 days for delivery ex-stock depending on your location within New Zealand and 3 months delivery for indent orders.

VSD Permanent Magnet Efficiency
  • High PM motor efficiency
  • Energy saving special dual cooling system
  • Unlimited motor start/stops per hour
  • Direct connection (no gearing)
  • Low noise
Standby Function

When the compressed air demand is very low or stops completely, the compressor will enter a standby-idle position, still maintaining the system pressure, but with minimal or zero load and current requirement, thus saving energy.

The intelligent controller can be programmed to customise the standby and stop-start modes, to optimise the compressed air delivery and economise on energy consumption, tailored to suit your application.

Ever Reliable with Heavy-Duty Features
  • Oversized air intake filtration for clean, trouble-free operation
  • 3-stage oil cleansing process
  • Double-sized air end spinning at less than half the RPM of similar belt-driven models
  • 30% larger after-cooler for extreme operating conditions of up to 45°C ambient temperature
Intelligent Micro Controller

Simple yet smart. Monitor the pressure, temperature, current display service cycles, system faults, on-load-off-load duty cycles. Up to 13 protection alarms including reverse rotation. Connect with other compressors or your computer for remote monitoring or interface with PneuTech’s Master Controller and operate up to 8 compressors in sequence.

Solid Steel Air & Oil Pipelines

Constructed from smooth interior solid steel tube, to eliminate the need for replacement, or risk of bursting or leakage.

High-Efficiency Air-End and Motor

German made air-ends feature special high-efficiency rotor profiles, and world-renowned Mepps 2 drive motors with class-F insulation and B temperature resistance, all combine to produce the highest-efficiency fixed speed compressor series in our fleet.


German made KTR coupler provides positive direct drive transmission technology, minimises power loss, contamination and vibration, while ensuring long-term performance
