Doosan's New P185 Air Compressor
First to Integrate Doosan-built Diesel

To help reduce operating costs and increase durability, Doosan Portable Power is integrating Doosan engines into its product line, announced Josh Goodman, assistant product manager, at the World of Concrete. The first product integrated with a Doosan powerplant will be the P185 T4F air compressor, available in March.

Emphasizing that Doosan is the only air compressor manufacturer to use a proprietary engine design, Goodman says, "our parent company has produced more than 1.5 million engines" and has a decades-long track record of quality. 

The new P185WDO air compressor is powered by a Tier 4 Final-compliant Doosan D24 engine with a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) aftertreatment system, which is virtually maintenance-free. The engine provides the P185 with reliable power and improved cold starting capability, Goodman points out. "We want it to start, unaided, at 10 degrees (F). In our testing process, it started at minus 13 degrees, unaided." Additionally, he says, the engine delivers a 7% increase in fuel efficiency over previous models.

The new P185 compressor with the D24 runs for 10 hours at full load and has 500-hour service intervals. It's quiet, too, Goodman says, producing sound levles at 74 dBA. It delivers 100 psi at 185 cfm, suitable for a variety of applications. 

The P185 equipped with the Doosan engine will be available in March 2015, and includes a promotional 3-year / 3,000-hour Doosan engine warranty. Doosan Portable Power plans to release more details on Doosan engine-equipped Tier 4 Final machines over the next 18 months.

engine can becalibrated to deliver higher horsepower for
other applications.
