Doosan launches new compressor.

Doosan Infracore Portable Power (DIPP) is launching the new 12/150 model, the company's largest single-axle portable compressor. The compact 12/150 offers outstanding towing stability for transport behind a vehicle. Incorporating the 'built to be used" design common to all DIPP compressors, the 12/150 provides the highest levels of durability, productivity and serviceability. The new 12/150 portable compressor has a free air delivery of 14.9 cu m/min (526 cfm) at an output pressure of 12 bar and is designed for applications in plant hire, construction, quarrying and general industry. This encompasses not only standard pressure applications such as powering breakers and tools in road repair, demolition and refurbishment, but also more specialist uses including drilling, abrasive blasting, spray painting, optical fibre blowing and standby and temporary compressed air for industry. The 12/150 offers as a standard feature a bunded base for environmental protection and well-positioned fuel tanks featuring large-size fillers also limit the risk of fuel spillage. The central drains contribute to the excellent serviceability of the 12/150, with all areas carefully designed for ease of inspection, maintenance and repair. In addition, service intervals for different compressor components have been rationalised to reduce associated costs for the customer and increase utilisation. The 12/150 model is powered by the Cummins QSB 6.7 FR91440 six-cylinder diesel engine providing the fuel efficiency, quiet-running, easy maintenance and high reliability and durability required for this application. The Cummins diesel engine is water-cooled and has a power output of 164 kW (220 HP) at a full load speed of 2,000 rpm. The 12/150 has a standard LAT (Limited Ambient Temperature) of 46AC.

Optional equipment As well as these options, the highly modular design of the new 12/150 compressor allows other types of optional equipment to be added easily. In this way, the 12/150 can be adapted for specific applications, such as fitting an aftercooler and water separator system for abrasive blasting. An optional diesel engine exhaust spark arrestor is a basic but key safety feature for hazardous area applications and should the engine begin to accelerate due to volatile vapours in the atmosphere, an optional overspeed valve closes the air intake to the engine, to prevent damage. The 12/150 compressor has an intuitive, simple key-start sequence, ideal for rental companies because of the reduced risk of machine abuse by untrained operators. The user-friendly control panel offers an open layout of instruments and warning indicators. Security features include a lockable canopy and lockable steel instrument panel cover. In addition, a folding lift bail reduces the risk of theft by keeping the lifting eye within the compressor enclosure. The customer livery option for the canopy can provide a further deterrent to theft.
