Atlas Copco introduces new QAS variant diesel generating sets

2010-09-03

To respond to the basic power demands of the markets outside Europe and North-America Atlas Copco launches an extra variant of QAS generators with basic standard specifications. This new version of QAS generators, the QAS flx, is ideal for all kinds of heavy duty applications like rental, construction, mining and shipyards. It will be available in 50 and 60 Hz .

The Atlas Copco QAS range of portable generators has been designed for fast, easy and safe transportation and on-site handling on virtually any unprepared surface.
 
The actual QAS range has a proven track-record and already comprises a wide variety of models rated between 14 – 571 kVA.  The standard specifications of the QAS flx variant are more basic than those of the actual QAS range.  Starting from these standard configurations, the end-user can however further complete this with a wide list of options to meet his power demand. This new variant of QAS generators will first come in the models from 13 to 45 kVA. Later more models will be added.
 
Housed in a noise attenuated enclosure made from zinc plated steel and painted with powder coating paint, the QAS range is ideally suited for applications in noise sensitive areas.
 
The enclosure also provides optimum resistance against corrosion ensuring that it remains in good condition and retains an improved resale value.

Options

The new QAS flx will come with an extensive option structure to enable customers to design the most suitable generating set for their application.

Heavy duty dual stage air-filtration with safety cartridge and dual stage fuel filtration with water separator, earth pin and battery switch and charger are available as an option.

Also a spark arrestor, air inlet shut down valve, coolant heater, quick couplings for an external fuel tank, a trailer and Cosmos are optionally available.
