Ease of service was a prime consideration during the design of the TwinPower system, with large access doors and custom service tools helping to maximise uptime. The service requirement is less than two hours of maintenance for every 500 hours of operation. Furthermore, due to the twin power concept, it is possible to still benefit from 50 per cent of the unit’s total capacity during maintenance operations.
Developed with key customers in mind, and manufactured to perform under the most demanding conditions within mining, construction, transport, oil and gas and utilities’ applications, the QAC1450 is designed to meet and exceed international approval specifications, including ISO8528, and is compliant with all current EU safety and environmental regulations.
Atlas Copco’s TwinPower operating principle is based around the concept of two generators, with two independent engines, inside one box. The QAC 1450 is the latest model to be launched and follows on from the successful TwinPower introduction in 2016. More models, with specific applications and customer groups in-mind, will follow throughout 2018.
