  • Drilling is made easier, faster, and cost effective with the XRW 1250.
More about XRV 1200: the undisputed leader with the highest market share in India
The yellow box XRV 1200 has stood the test of time with more than 3000 installations that dot the borewell landscape across the length and breadth of the country, making water – the most important natural resource - more accessible. It distinguishes itself by its performance, dependability, and fuel efficiency in the water well segment, and also due to its unique characteristics:
  • Discharge pressure committed is the pressure delivered @ 330 psi
  • Low fuel consumption
  • Faster and deeper drilling
  • Drilling even at ambient temperature as high as 50 degree celsius
  • All safety standards are met
  • Smaller machine footprints
  • Low weight.
Better Penetration Rate: Even after reaching the water table, the XRV 1200 compressor efficiently handles the back pressure and enables the driller to continue drilling deeper through the water table to get the maximum benefit of the bore.

Best LAT in its class: XRV 1200 is specifically designed to operate at 50 degree latent ambient temperature (LAT) in all kinds of weather with its closed door operation.

Low fuel consumption: XRV 1200 has a unique feature of high torque at optimum engine speed which ensures the best fuel economy. This Step Less Regulating System offers the lowest fuel consumption in its class due to the screw element efficiency.

Ensuring maximum efficiency: The synthetic oil used in the XRV 1200 is of the best quality; it not only serves as a coolant but also as a sealant between the two rotors, so there is no loss of efficiency. Since the cooler and radiator are made of aluminium, there is efficient heat dissipation, and since they are on a single panel, it enables easy maintenance.

XRV 1200 has many firsts introduced by Atlas Copco:
  • It was the first company to introduce powder-coated canopies in India
  • The first to increase sturdiness of the canopy by increasing the thickness
  • The first to have an unloader valve
Since the XRV 1200 has the most compact footprint in the large air compressor category, no extra trucks are required to carry extra rods and lesser loads on trucks, so the wear and tear is also less. Customers save space on the truck plus time and money. This water well drilling compressor provides the most advanced technology to meet critical agriculture water needs across the country.

Why Atlas Copco Compressors are Market Leaders
Designed to reduce carbon footprint
  • The heart of the compressor – the energy-efficient, advanced screw element, delivers high flow at committed pressure with the lowest specific fuel consumption.
  • There are no emissions with electric compressors and reduced carbon footprints with the company’s new diesel compressors.
  • The unique suction type unloader valve introduced by Atlas Copco (being used for decades in its compressors), enhances the coordination between engine speed, demand of flow, and operating pressures as per application demand, to increase productivity and reduce fuel consumption.

The company is bringing unmatched services with its advanced digital systems, which complement the traditional way of servicing by the engineers, by monitoring the health of the machines digitally.

FleetLink: The FleetLink technology from Atlas Copco enables customers to monitor and control their fleet of machines efficiently and conveniently. This intelligent system offers many possibilities to optimize fleet usage, reduce maintenance cost, and save time and money. The technology connects Atlas Copco, the customer, and the compressor with GPS functionality inbuilt in FleetLink.

Power Connect LIVE: This is a remote augmented reality-powered video assistance service that allows the technical support team to solve machine problems remotely. It was especially helpful during the pandemic when the service technicians were unable to visit customer worksites for their equipment related issues. All that the customers need is a smartphone to scan the QR code on the compressor so that they can access machine details and the service technicians can then assist them in problem solving - anytime and anywhere.

PACE technology: PACE stands for Pressure Adjusted through Cognitive Electronics. Features include:
  • Electronically controlled Pressure Regulating Valve
  • Pressure set via intuitive XC2003 controller
  • Any 2 set points between minimum and maximum operating pressure
