Ariel Introduces KBE Compressor

Nearly two years after releasing two new compressor frames, Ariel Corp. has done it again with another model – the KBE.

The latest compressor adds another KB frame to Ariel’s midline compressors – the heart of the company’s lineup. In 2018, Ariel debuted the KBK:T frames, which also fall into the midline range. Unlike the KBK:T frames, which fell between two compressor models in the lineup, the KBE serves as an alternative for operators using Ariel’s JGH:E:T compressors with ET cylinders.

“We’ve made a significant investment in compressor technology and will leverage that to bring new products to the marketplace,” said Robert Drews, Ariel’s director of marketing. “We are improving the value we provide to our customers.”

The KBE, available in two- and four-throw variations, is designed to meet the compression needs for many of the applications that use its JGH:E:K:T frames. It has the same features of other KB models, such as the KB style angled guide, which increases the structural stiffness substantially compared with the JG style frames, Drews said.
