Page 56 of 63 April 2019 • 55 INNOVATIONS EQUIPMENT & PRODUCTS A single-stage, oil-injected, rotary screw portable compressor, the CPS 250 features cognitive electronics (PACE) technology with which the operator can control machine pressure. The new intuitive XC2003 controller is coupled with PACE functionality and adjusts the pressure in 2-psi increments. The operator can also toggle between two pre- defined set points. In addition to the new controller, product engineers increased the operating range of the compressor in the 100-150 psi range, making the machine more versatile and user friendly. "The increase in the operating range essentially makes this two machines in one," says CP Product Manager – Portable Com- pressors Brent Sexton. "The PACE functionality ensures the air flow matches the desired operating pressure to maximize output without compromising on fuel efficiency." Powered by a Tier 4 Final, liquid-cooled, four-cylinder turbo- charged Kubota diesel engine, the CPS 250 runs at 65 hp. The exhaust treatment system is a diesel particular filter in diesel oxidation cata- lyst. The unit's cooling system consists of an integrated, side-by-side aluminum oil cooler with axial fan for optimum cooling. Designed for a higher maximum working pressure, the air and oil separator is equipped with high pressure sealed and certified safety relief valve and automatic blow-down valve. The CPS 250 has a hard hat canopy in a sound attenuated Zincor steel enclosure. The unit comes with a spillage-free frame as standard with 110 percent fluid containment. — Chicago Pneumatic, Rock Hill, S.C., Portable air compressor True Lube Landing Gear Grease is formulated specifically for Holland equipment to maintain the optimized perfor- mance through: wide operating temperature range, 40°F to 150°F, ensuring crank operation; high formula stability, providing consistently smooth operation; corrosion and oxidation protection; oil bleed control, reducing oil leaks and preventing grease hardening; salt water resistance enabling lasting service in harsh coastal environments; anti-wear and load carrying properties to curtail gear and screw damage under heavy loads; and, high-tech formula for optimal efficiency.
