Atlas Copco Power Technique North America has launched a high-pressure booster range to the market, the company announced. The booster enables the operator to increase the pressure of the primary compressor, offering solutions up to 5,000 psi, offering flexibility, promoting jobsite productivity, and designed to work across several industries.
“The Atlas Copco boosters are great for several industries. For instance, in drilling they enable the operator to efficiently increase drilling speed, reduce the cost per meter drilled and improve overall profitability,” says Clayton Jones, product manager — portable compressors. “These machines have everything a company needs from performance to simplified maintenance and safety.”
The new booster range is comprised of five standard Tier-4 Final models, and 11 models for less regulated countries. All dual stage boosters come standard with the ability to also operate in single stage, offering the most flexibility.
The new XC4004 controller panel allows for quick at-a-glance monitoring of all vital parameters, featuring an audible, visual alarm, and a remote mirror capability so you can control your booster from a distance — a large leap forward from the previous models which had an analog control panel.
The pumper block, available in either four or six cylinder, is the heartbeat of the booster package, connecting to the engine with a flexible coupling, which allows the pumper block to easily detach for service.
With a greatly reduced size and weight of the booster portfolio, the units are designed for easy transport, even in the most remote locations. Maintenance of all valves is simplified to allow completion in four hours or less, thanks to their simplified cylinder design. Additionally, built-in safety mechanisms go above and beyond legislative requirements.
