Doosan’s new HP and XHP models are powered by Caterpillar engines. Each model offers a 1000-hour maintenance interval.
The compressors are designed to drill foundations for new buildings and bridges, test pressurization before pipelines go online and stand in for electric-driven compressors during planned factory shutdowns.
“Downtime causes delays and our customers could incur penalties as a result,” said Jeremy Bailey, global director of product management for Doosan Portable Power.
The compressors are equipped with screens, simple controls and full side access has been implemented into both model designs. The Cat C13B U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final, EU Stage V engine is an option for the HP model, a single-stage larger air compressor capable of up to 200 psi. It’s the only power source available for the XHP, a two-stage model that delivers up to 365 psi.
In testing prior to launch, Doosan Portable Power found the C13B delivered more work per gallon of diesel fuel than previous engine models.
The Cat C13B engine is offered in ratings up to 577 hp (430kW) and peak torque is 2634 Nm (1943 foot-pounds).
