Atlas Copco’s Portable Energy division is preparing to launch a new generation of on-site solutions for construction, mining, drilling and quarrying industries worldwide. The new additions to Atlas Copco’s portable portfolio demonstrate a forward-thinking approach to product design, anticipating customers’ need for continuous improvement in speed, reliability and efficiency.
New efficient mobile compressor range
One of the most highly anticipated launches of 2016, the 8 Series compressor range incorporates the latest advances in air element design and delivers improved efficiency. The 8 Series compressors, with an updated HardHat canopy, break new ground in producing air at a rate of up to 5m3 per minute, while remaining compact and lightweight. Every model in the range weighs below 750kg, including a full-size fuel tank, generator and aftercooler, allowing them to be towed behind a normal passenger car without a special driving license. The new range uses 12% less fuel than comparable products and only requires less than an hour’s total service time over two years of operation.
QES Generator Range Extension
Successfully launched in 2015, the QES range will be expanded in May 2016. Initially offering six power nodes, 9 to 40 kVA with Kubota engines, the range will be bolstered with six new models from 60 to 200 kVA featuring John Deere engines. The QES range is the straightforward, rugged and durable solution for general applications across construction environments.
WEDA 50 and 60 Submersible Pumps
The WEDA range of electrical submersible pumps can manage from 225 to 20,200 litres per minute with a maximum head of 85m. May 2016 will see two new models added to the range. The new 50 and 60 models deliver enhanced performance, thanks to new hydraulic parts, and improved power to weight ratios, thanks largely to a new motor design.
XAT(V)S 186 Compressor
The versatile XAT(V)S 186 range is comprised of two models featuring an intuitive PACE system (Pressure Adjusted through Cognitive Electronics), which enables multiple pressure and flow settings to help users match air flow and pressure to their application needs, without needing multiple compressor units. The highly-regarded Atlas Copco air element and John Deere stage IV engine, coupled with the PACE system, ensure higher efficiency, longer service intervals, unmatched reliability, increased lifetime and lower cost of ownership. Operators using multiple machines to cover flow demands up to 11m3/min and pressures from 7 to 14 bar now need only one compressor.
HiLight towers range
Following the latest addition to Atlas Copco’s complete range of light tower solutions, the V4 and V5+, the entire fleet of light towers has been rebranded as the HiLight range. The range offers the industry’s widest choice for a number of applications, including construction, outdoor events and industrial markets. A single light tower, dependent on the model, can illuminate an area of up to 5,000m2 , have a run time between refuelling of 260 hours and consume less than 0.5 litres of fuel per hour. In the next two months, Atlas Copco will launch two new models: the E3+ and H5+. Both are LED models and will take the complete HiLight range to seven models, four of which are LED.
The XATS 900E electric portable compressor combines smart engineering, proven technology and quality components. Suitable for sites with a ready supply of power, the XATS 900E is easy to install as it requires no additional foundations. The corrosion-resistant canopy of the compressor is designed for use in all weather conditions, without the need for additional rooms and enclosures. The XATS 900E delivers compressed air from 7 to 10 bar (100 to 150 psi) with a flow of up to 25 m3/min (900 cfm).
