Doosan Portable Power has expanded its range of portable compressors available in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region.

The manufacturer said it now offered its full range of compressed air applications from construction, rental, utilities and manufacturing to quarrying, waterwell drilling and the oil and gas industry, with free air deliveries from 185 to 1500 cfm (5.0 to 42.5 m3/min) at output pressures from 100 to 500 psig (7 to 35 bar).

As well as a wide selection of Tier 3 High Ambient models, it said the range also included several Tier 1 or Tier 2 engine-powered models, suited to the fuel quality levels found in these regions.

New models included the C185WKUB-EX-T2 compressor, which was specially designed for use in hot climates such as those in MEA. The manufacturer said the compressor had a free air delivery of 185 cfm (5.2 m³/min) and operates at a working pressure of 100 psig (7 bar).

Another popular model in MEA, according to Doosan, was the Tier 3 P260/HP220WYM-T3 compressor, which offered many of the features found in the smaller machine but also offers a dual pressure option for more versatility.

The dual pressure portable air compressor delivered airflows ranging from 220 to 260 cfm (6.2-7.4 m³/min) and pressures ranging from 100 to 150 psi (7-10 bar).

For quarrying, foundations work and other deep drilling applications, Doosan offerrf a number of different models, including the XHP900WCAT-T1 and XHP1070WCAT-T1, which incorporate a CAT 3406 Tier l mechanically controlled engine.

It said the XHP900WCAT-T1 and XHP1070WCAT-T1 compressors had free air deliveries of 900 cfm (25.4 m³/min) and 1070 cfm (30.3 m³/min) at an output pressure of 350 psig (24.1 bar).
