A new range of portable compressors has been launched by Doosan Portable Power, comprising four models with air deliveries from 2.5 to 5.0 m³/min (90-180 cfm) and designed with a focus on simplicity, durability, reliability and transportability.
In the new small compressors, the first number in the model name indicates the pressure in bar, the second number represents nominal airflow in cubic metres per minute, while the number 5 at the end indicates a Stage V compliant engine. There are three models operating at 7 bar nominal pressure – the new Stage V Yanmar-powered 7/25, 7/45 and 7/55 with outputs of 2.5, 4.0 and 5.0 m³/min (90, 140 and 180 cfm), respectively. The small compressor range is completed by the new 14/35 higher pressure model providing 3.0 m³/min (105 cfm) of compressed air at 13.8 bar.
Jan Moravec, general manager, Doosan Portable Power for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, said: “The design complexity required for the implementation of the latest Stage V engines led us to completely rethink the design of the small compressor range, while maintaining the well-accepted, superior durability of our products, improving the serviceability and fulfilling all possible transportability requirements, at the same time as expanding our focus on environmentally friendlier solutions.
“As a result, like in our larger compressor ranges, a leak-free bunded base is now fully integrated into the bottom frame of the new small compressors and includes the central drains for all fluids. For the Stage V units with electronic control, we have also introduced the option of the ECOmizer feature, which reduces emissions, noise and fuel consumption.”
Machine equipped with the ECOmizer option will automatically recognise the working phase and will act on pressure and engine speed without the intervention of the operator to optimise the fuel consumption and to reduce noise and emissions. As soon as the operator activates a pneumatic tool being powered by the compressor, the machine will automatically recognise the demand for flow and pressure. For example, in a working cycle with 50% full load and 50% idle speed, the ECOmizer provides 60% savings in fuel.
Michele Corsi, product manager, Doosan Portable Power, added: “The most immediate, noticeable change in the 7/25, 7/45, 7/55 and 14/35 Stage V units is the new dynamic and modern appearance, thanks to an updated design, bringing a fresh new look. The success of the previous Tough Top (polymer) canopies has led Doosan Portable Power to offer this solution as standard.
“The new easy-to-open canopy creates a fantastic line with the newly designed polymer mudguards and bumpers. The newly integrated LED lights are also offered as standard for all the machines. And of course, the long-standing metal canopy versions will still be available to customers as an option.”
Other improvements include an updated control panel, which has been repositioned for improved access and is now protected by a lockable cover. A simple manometer reports the pressure and on models with electronically controlled engines, there is an additional switch to force DPF regeneration. For machines with the generator option, there is also an additional three-position switch and voltmeter.
New models can be delivered with or without brakes, in fixed or variable height configurations. All new models also offer a weight below 750kg, even with optional equipment. This means that a standard category B driver’s licence is enough to tow the units.
All portable compressors from Doosan Portable Power are known for the simplicity of their daily maintenance and service requirements. These latest generation small machines continue this legacy in a number of exceptional ways:
- The canopy opens toward the drawbar, guaranteeing maximum stability when servicing the machine.
- In addition to this, the ‘maintenance position’ opening is more than 90 degrees, allowing easy access to any components of the compressor.
- The cooling pack is mounted on the back, making daily cleaning extremely fast and efficient.
- And lastly, all replaceable parts are located right in front of the operator, ensuring the quickest possible maintenance work.
Mr Corsi concluded: “The new generation of small portable compressors is the perfect response to meet what our customers have been asking for. To satisfy any customer needs, we also offer a wide range of options and customizations. So I urge customers to get in touch with their local dealers to find out more.”
