New Doosan HP1600WCU T4i-Compliant Air Compressor Combines Rugged Reliability with a New Package

06/14/2013

Statesville, N.C. - Doosan Portable Power introduces the industry’s first 1,600 cfm air compressor offering the efficiencies of a Tier 4i engine - the HP1600WCU. The new model is the largest in the full line of Doosan Portable Power air compressors, and includes design enhancements that combine the signature durability and reliability of Doosan compressors with simplified maintenance and value-added technologies. The HP1600 is a mainstay for demanding industrial jobs, abrasive blasting and snow-making.

The HP1600WCU offers both power and fuel efficiency with a Tier 4i-compliant Cummins engine that produces 260 hp at 2,200 rpm, and offers a 7 percent fuel savings over the predecessor model. Power is balanced by quiet operation, as the HP1600 boasts a 76 dBA noise level.

Machine productivity is enhanced with a newly designed enclosure that offers simplified maintenance and environmental protection. A single-row cooler design encourages easy maintenance and helps ensure high performance in demanding conditions, while a cool-box design prolongs component life and eliminates long cool-down periods. The coolers are easily accessed via a compartment door on the right or curb side of the machine, while side doors provide easy access to filters and fluids. Machine uptime is maximized with extended service intervals: Engine oil service needs to be completed only every 500 hours, and airend oil service every 1,000 hours. An environmentally friendly containment basin offers 110 percent fluid containment, capturing and preventing the spillage of fuel and oil.

“As we introduce Tier 4i models in our lineup, we do so with dedication to upgrading the models in a way that adds true value to our customers’ bottom line with maximized productivity and efficiency,” said Rus Warner, manager, global air products, Doosan Portable Power. “This HP1600WCU T4i has the same footprint and durable design as the previous model, with added advantages, including the advanced technology offered by the ViewPort control panel, fuel savings from the Tier 4i engine, and improved serviceability. We’re proud that we’re offering customers the largest Tier 4i lineup available in the industry, but even more so, that these Tier 4i models have the lowest total cost of ownership when compared to other units on the market.”

Operation of the HP1600WCU is made easy with the Doosan ViewPort control system, which provides more detail and preloaded resources than any other control panel in the market. An intuitive joystick control provides access to 15 operational parameters, and easy access to relevant operation and parts manuals, a machine maintenance schedule, and spare parts information. The full-color, digital display system with LED back-lighting makes machine monitoring easy and efficient.

Designed to enhance operator safety, a number of automatic shutdowns engage in the presence of certain conditions, including high discharge air temperature, low engine oil pressure, high engine coolant temperature and low fuel levels.

Built for long-term use and maximum productivity, the model can withstand the challenges of rugged on-site conditions with its heavy-gauge galvannealed steel enclosure, heavy-duty tandem-axle running gear for easy towing, and construction-grade pedestal jack stand.

The HP1600WCU includes a 1-year/2,000-hour package warranty and 2-year/4,000-hour airend warranty. An optional 5-year/10,000-hour extended powertrain warranty is available if genuine Doosan fluids and filters are used at recommended maintenance intervals.

Doosan Portable Power offers a full line of high pressure air compressors delivering a range of 750 to 1,600 cfm to meet any application requirement.
