AT­LAS COPCO LAUNCHES AIR COMPRESSOR MOD­ELS BE­LOW 500 KG FOR UTIL­ITY TRUCKS

PMV Middle East - - PEAK PERFORMANCE -

At­las Copco has ex­panded its 8 Se­ries Util­ity range of air com­pres­sors for util­ity trucks with the launch of three mod­els weigh­ing be­low 500 kg. The small foot­print of the com­pres­sors en­able op­er­a­tors re­quir­ing com­pressed air at flow rates of up to 2.8 m3/ min to re­duce the over­all weight of their ve­hi­cles and save space. The new U110 PACE compressor fea­tures a con­troller that al­lows for mul­ti­ple pres­sure con­fig­u­ra­tions be­tween 5-10.5 bar.

Hen­drik Tim­mer­mans, vice pres­i­dent, mar­ket­ing, At­las Copco’s por­ta­ble air di­vi­sion, said: “We launched our 8 Se­ries Util­ity range last year with the prom­ise of pro­vid­ing cus­tomers with light­weight and ver­sa­tile com­pres­sors that could be eas­ily and se­curely in­te­grated into their util­ity trucks. We have now taken that com­mit­ment one-step fur­ther with the in­tro­duc­tion of our three lat­est mod­els. Not only do they weigh be­low 500 kg, but all com­pres­sors in the Util­ity Air range now of­fer en­hanced in­dus­try-lead­ing ser­vice in­ter­vals.”

In ad­di­tion to the three new light­weight com­pres­sors, At­las Copco has en­hanced its top of the range U190 PACE model. Its Pres­sure Ad­just through Cog­ni­tive Elec­tron­ics (PACE) sys­tem en­ables op­er­a­tors to choose from a wide op­er­at­ing pres­sure range cur­rently avail­able for a truck-mounted air compressor. With the PACE elec­tronic reg­u­la­tion sys­tem, op­er­a­tors use a dig­i­tal con­troller to ad­just the pres­sure with ac­cu­racy de­pend­ing on their ap­pli­ca­tions.

Sev­eral mod­els can also be equipped with 15 KVA non-si­mul­ta­ne­ous gen­er­a­tor to fur­ther in­crease the ver­sa­til­ity of just one unit. For en­hanced pro­tec­tion of the tools that op­er­a­tors use down­stream, all com­pres­sors within the 8 Se­ries Util­ity range can now be equipped with an op­tional in­te­grated af­ter­cooler and wa­ter sep­a­ra­tor. All com­pres­sors in the 8 Se­ries Util­ity range fea­ture a ro­bust, cor­ro­sion re­sis­tant C3 rated canopy. Kub­ota me­chan­i­cal en­gines come as stan­dard with 110 per cent fluid con­tain­ment, starter mo­tor pro­tec­tion and in­te­grated top tanks. For ease for ser­vice, each model is de­signed for one side ser­vice, spin on fil­ters for quick main­te­nance and cen­tralised drains for con­ve­nience. In ad­di­tion, all con­sum­ables within the compressor are re­place­able in un­der an hour with­out the need for spe­cial tools.
