Doosan Portable Power recently restored the 500th air compressor as part of its Certified Remanufacturing Program. An aging HP750WCU-T1 air compressor was restored to like-new condition and will include a new warranty.

Since the program's introduction in 2012, nearly 100 air compressors have been remanufactured each year in the company's Statesville, North Carolina, facility.

Initially available for air compressors originally manufactured by Doosan or Ingersoll Rand rated 750 cfm or above, the program was expanded in 2018 to include lower cfm air compressor models – HP375, XP375, P425 – as well as Doosan G450 and G570 mobile generator models.

"The continued demand and expansion of the Certified Remanufacturing Program after 500 restorations shows that the demand for this type of program continues to fill a need for our dealers and customers," said Hugh McCluskey, service director, Doosan Portable Power. 

The Doosan Certified Remanufacturing Program works two ways: customers can purchase an air compressor or generator from the Doosan inventory of remanufactured machines, or customers can retain ownership of their original machine throughout the remanufacturing process.

Each remanufactured machine is disassembled down to the frame before the rebuilding process begins. Each unit receives a remanufactured engine of the same tier classification as originally equipped, as well as a factory-reconditioned airend for air compressors and alternator for generators. Some remanufacturing machines can be retrofitted with factory-installed options during the remanufacturing process.

The base frame and separator tank receives a total makeover, including paint stripping and recoating – all with strict adherence to the same stringent process used for new Doosan machines. External and internal components are replaced, including all sheet metal, wheels, tires, lights, coolers, sensors, hoses and piping. A new wiring harness is also installed.

Each machine is reassembled along the same line as new machines and following the same strict protocol. All Doosan remanufactured air compressors and generators are factory tested to ensure proper operation before shipment.

"We do the remanufacturing in our factory with our technicians and parts so we can ensure the highest quality possible. Our experienced, highly skilled technicians are the most valuable asset in the remanufacturing program," said McCluskey.

Each remanufactured machine is registered in the Doosan Portable Power system with a same-as-new machine warranty. This warranty is fully transferrable in the event the unit is resold prior to the expiration of the warranty. Each machine is delivered with a complete set of manuals as well as a certificate indicating it has been through the Certified Remanufacturing Program.

"Remanufacturing is a cost-effective and reliable alternative to purchasing new equipment for price-conscious contractors and those who prefer the ease of lower-tier machine operation and maintenance," said McCluskey.
