The VISION Series produces performance levels that we are proud to associate with the Champion name. For example, the 15 HP model at 125 psi realizes a flow of 54 cfm. That’s a very efficient specific power of 24.7
The VISION Series utilizes the enhanced Enduro E3+ airend. Specifically designed for belt-driven compressor packages, the E3+ is one of the most efficient airends of its size. This latest version has improved rotor profiles resulting in greater overall efficiency. The E3+ is made up of as few components as possible. Fewer components means fewer wear items and greater reliability. Thanks to the bearing and pulley design of the E3+, radial load to the bearings from belt tension is minimized. This ultimately results in extended airend life.
Before it even enters the VISION Series enclosure, atmospheric air is already being filtered by the heavy duty pre-filters located on the base of the unit. Instead of making the compressor fight an uphill battle by bringing the hot air discharged by the cooler back into the unit, we have placed the inlet at the floor, as far away from the cooler as possible. After passing through pre-filtration, air is routed into the main cabinet by the cooling fan. The air then begins moving upward toward the inlet air intake. The standard two-stage cyclonic inlet air filter is 99.9% efficient @ 5 microns which means very few impurities make it into the airend. After being compressed by the airend, an over-braided stainless steel hose carries the air / oil mixture to the oil reservoir where the bulk of the oil is removed. Another stainless steel hose carries the air / oil mixture to the separator where it is finitely cleaned to a carry-over level of 2 ppm or less before entering the aftercooler. Once through the aftercooler, clean cool compressed air is released into the compressed air system.
Each 5-15 HP VISION unit will include a TEFC motor with a standard 5 year warranty. This package will be controlled by our easy-to-use AirSmart microprocessor controller which is enclosed by a NEMA 4 rated control box. There are several voltage options available including the 230V (single-phase available on 5 and 7.5 HP; 3-phase on 5-15 HP), 460V, 575V and a field convertible tri-volt package that can be wired as 208-230V or 460V. The tri-voltage offering allows you to stock multiple voltages in one package. For pressures, these machines will be available in 110, 125 and 175 psig. The cooling air flow on these units is top-discharged, which allows for greater flexibility when it comes to where the unit is installed. The VISION also series qualifies for the 5- year extended air end warranty program which will cover the full pressure range of the package.
Ease of Maintenance :
We realize that downtime is critical and that business is interrupted when a compressor goes off line for maintenance. With this in mind, the Vision Series has been designed so that all routine maintenance can be accomplished in as little as 15 minute, with no specialized tools needed!
The new AirSmart controller is easy to use yet
includes several important features such as Automatic
start/stop and load/unload operation, and a 4 status
LED display system. Its Nema 4 design and LCD
control panel informs the user when service is due
and constantly displays all the vital compressor
information. It also provides the diagnostic feedback
needed to keep the compressor maintained while
Flexible Configuration Options:
Along with the standard base mount configuration, the new series will come as Vision Total System configurations that include 80, 120 or 240 gallon tanks and with or without our standard CRN dryer. All Total Systems will come standard with a float-type, zero air loss drain, integrated enclosed fork lift slots, and stainless steel air supply piping with brass connections. Standard features with a mounted dryer include an integrated grade B separator / filter and a 3-way bypass. For applications that demand even higher levels of air quality, a cold-coalescer option is available.
The VISION units offer one of the most compact footprints in the market with the base-mounted models measuring 26.5" x 30.5" x 42.95". This compact design has not sacrificed serviceability at all in order to attain the small footprint. The enclosure panels are quickly removed with a half turn of a few twist locks. Once the panels have been removed, the belts along with the easy spin-on/spin-off oil filter and separator can easily be inspected or replaced. All components are very accessible to make servicing the product as easy and simple as possible.
Keeping noise levels at an acceptable range makes communication easier and can help to make workers more productive. At 67 dBA for the 5 hp and 68 dBA for the 7.5 hp unit, you will not find a quieter air compressor in the industry! This allows for the air compressor to be installed near the point of use which can lower compressor installation costs. With the new Vision Series, you are receiving the true sound rating of the unit.
