“ We are committed to helping our customers meet the challenges posed by the construction industry both now and in the future. With this in mind, the latest additions to our Portable Energy range have been developed to offer further improvements in energy efficiency, greater flexibility on-site and long-lasting performance. This ensures our customers receive maximum productivity, profitability and ease of movement. ”
Leading the line up on Booth C31486 is Atlas Copco’s new QAS generator range that is designed specifically for the needs of the US market. The range has been completely overhauled and incorporates eight models covering power ratings from 25-330 kVA. All QAS generators include the latest Tier 4 Final engine and have a footprint that is up to 25 per cent smaller than the previous generation. The starting mechanism ensures that stable power is achieved in less than six seconds.
When it comes to fuel efficiency, compactness and noise attenuation, Atlas Copco sees its iP generators as the future and visitors to Booth C31486 will have a chance to see why. Atlas Copco’s new inverter generators, which are available in power ratings between 1.6-3 kVA, feature variable speed smart control and use advanced electronics and magnets to deliver a clean and predictable source of AC power at the required voltage and frequency.
CONEXPO will see the HiLight E3+ make its debut in the US market. The electric-only LED model provides exceptional plug-and-light capabilities that enable users to easily connect to a power source, including auxiliary power, an electric generator or directly into the grid. To aid users requiring extra light coverage, up to 4 HiLight E3+ models can be powered by a single Atlas Copco iP generator.
All models in the HiLight range include energy efficient LED lights and Atlas Copco’s legendary HardHat canopy. HiLight towers deliver significant fuel savings of up to 60 per cent when compared to the typical fuel consumption of metal halide solutions. Dependent on the model, HiLight towers consume less than 0.13 gallons of fuel per hour, giving a run-time of up to 260 hours before refuelling. A single HiLight can illuminate an area of up to 53,000 sq. ft., and provide an average luminosity of 20 Luxes.
Atlas Copco will debut three new PAS diesel pumps at CONEXPO. With an outlet of 4,6 or 8 inches, the high capacity diaphragm pumps have a pumping head of up to 180 ft. and accommodate flows of up to 3650 gallons per minute. Visitors will be able to learn about the pumps’ extended range of new features that are designed to maximise efficiency and minimise fuel consumption.
Over the next 12 months Atlas Copco is replacing its popular WEDA electric range with the WEDA+ range. The new WEDA+ 50 and 60 models will be launched at CONEXPO. The WEDA+ range includes all of the characteristics customers have come to expect from existing WEDA pumps; with the addition of new features that have been developed to take performance to the next level. Benefits include higher efficiency, simplified maintenance and increased capacity.
Portable compressors will also feature prominently at CONEXPO, with several models from Atlas Copco’s XAS range to be exhibited. This includes the flagship XAS 185, which has recently been re-designed to include the latest Tier 4 Final engine. The resultant improvement in engine performance has significantly aided the compressor’s ability to work at high altitudes.
A new XAS 400 cfm compressor will also be on display, which features an intuitive PACE system (Pressure Adjusted through Cognitive Electronics) that enables users to match air flow and pressure to their application needs, without requiring multiple compressor units. This compressor also includes the latest Tier 4 Final engine.
Visitors to Booth C31486 will have the opportunity to see the new XAS 110. With a flow of 110 cfm, the XAS 110 is compact, lightweight, easy-to-tow and requires no exhaust after treatment. All XAS compressors, on show, feature Atlas Copco’s legendary HardHat® canopy, which is corrosion free and needs no painting or dent repairs.
As a final incentive, visitors to Booth C31486 will have the chance to experience a virtual 3D construction site. This booth within a booth provides the opportunity to interact with different types of Portable Energy equipment, as if they were running on-site, and learn how Atlas Copco keeps its customers connected to machines in the field.
