The new 12/150 compressor from Doosan Infracore Portable Power (DIPP) has a free air delivery of 14.9 m³/minute at an output pressure of 12 bar.

Doosan Infracore Portable Power (DIPP) has launched the new 12/150 model, the company's largest single axle portable compressor.

The compact model offers "outstanding" towing stability for transport behind a vehicle, the company said.

Incorporating the ‘built to be used' design - common to all DIPP compressors - the 12/150 provides the highest levels of durability, productivity and serviceability, a spokesman for DIPP added.

The new model has a free air delivery of 14.9 m³/minute at an output pressure of 12 bar and is designed for applications in plant hire, construction, quarrying and general industry.

In addition, it offers a bunded base as a standard feature for environmental protection and well-positioned fuel tanks featuring large size fillers also limit the risk of fuel spillage.

Central drains contribute to the serviceability of the 12/150, with all areas carefully designed for ease of inspection, maintenance and repair.

In addition, service intervals for different compressor components have been rationalised to reduce costs for the customer and increase the use of the unit.

DIPP stated the new machine is powered by the Cummins QSB 6.7 FR91440 6-cylinder diesel engine which provides the required fuel efficiency. It also allows for easy maintenance as well as high reliablity and durability.

The water-cooled engine has a power output of 164 kW at a full load speed of 2000 rpm. The 12/150 has a standard LAT (Limited Ambient Temperature) of 46°C.

The modular design of the new compressor allows other equipment to be added so that it can be adapted for specific applications.

An optional diesel engine exhaust spark arrestor is a basic but key safety feature for hazardous area applications and should the engine begin to accelerate due to volatile vapours in the atmosphere, an optional overspeed valve closes the air intake to the engine, to prevent damage.

The 12/150 compressor has an intuitive, simple key-start sequence, ideal for rental companies because of the reduced risk of machine abuse by untrained operators. The user-friendly control panel offers an open layout of instruments and warning indicators.
