Atlas Copco Power Technique North America has launched a high-pressure booster range to the market. The booster enables the operator to increase the pressure of the primary compressor for better productivity on the jobsite, offering solutions up to 5,000 PSI.
The new booster range is comprised of five standard Tier 4 Final models, and 11 models for less regulated countries. They are designed to work across several industries including exploration drilling, geothermal drilling and pipeline services. All dual stage boosters come standard with the ability to also operate in single stage, offering the most flexibility.
"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," said Clayton Jones, Product Manager - portable compressors at Atlas Copco Power Technique. "These machines have everything a company needs from performance to simplified maintenance and safety."
The new XC4004 controller panel allows for quick at-a-glance monitoring of all vital parameters. The panel also features an audible, visual alarm, and a remote mirror capability so you can control your booster from a distance to help increase your onsite efficiency. This is a large leap forward from the previous models which had an analog control panel. The XC4004 offers an interface that is much easier for the operator to use.
Designed by Atlas Copco, the pumper block is the heartbeat of the booster package. It connects to the engine with a flexible coupling, allowing the pumper block to easily detach for service. Depending on the booster and compression stages needed, the pumper block comes in either four or six cylinder.
With a greatly reduced size and weight of the booster portfolio, the units have been designed to be easily transported, even in the most remote locations. With their unique cylinder design, maintenance of all valves is simplified to allow completion in four hours or less. Additionally, built-in safety mechanisms go above and beyond legislative requirements.
