Clark Equipment represents Doosan Portable Power at Drill 2010 in Australia

STATESVILLE, N.C., USA — Doosan Portable Power dealer Clark Equipment will showcase the newest Ingersoll Rand-branded air compressor for the drilling industry at DRILL 2010 inAdelaide, South Australia, September 22 to 25. The Clark Equipment stand features the new Ingersoll Rand-branded XXHP1270/XHP1500FCAT compressor as well as displays of a hydraulic-powered air module and an airend.

“There couldn’t be a better opportunity to showcase our new air compressor model for drilling use as it’s a perfect fit in the drilling industry in Australia,” said David Stahlman, vice president, global marketing, Doosan Portable Power. “We’re pleased to be partnering with our dealer, Clark Equipment, to feature this air compressor at the tradeshow.”

The Ingersoll Rand-branded XXHP1270/XHP1500FCAT open-frame air compressor is ideal for use in environments where a small footprint, a high-flow and an extra-high-pressure system is required, including applications such as underbalanced, quarry and coal-bed methane drilling, nitrogen generation or offshore drilling.

The XXHP1270/XHP1500FCAT has a small footprint that is crucial for remote drilling sites, especially when space is limited and efficiency in equipment transport is necessary. The compressor delivers 42.5 m3/min of free air at 24.1 bar and 36.8 m3/min at 34.5 bar; providing the highest power density in the industry in terms of the flow/pressure combination from a standard compressor package.

The XXHP1270/XHP1500FCAT compressor is powered by a 522 kW Caterpillar C-18T 6-cylinder diesel engine. This compressor package is designed to run as clean as possible while maximizing fuel efficiency. The package comes standard with an aftercooler, allowing water to be removed from the air for a more controlled quality of air for downhole drill or membrane applications. The oil carryover is less than 2 parts per million resulting in less contamination of filter membranes and reduced oil cost between changes.

The XXHP1270FCAT/XHP1500FCAT is the newest of an expansive Ingersoll Rand-branded portable compressor range from Doosan Portable Power. The range includes one of the most comprehensive air compressor lines on the market with 34 models covering free air deliveries from 1.8 to 45.3 m3/min at output pressures from 6.9 to 34.5 bar.
