The CPS 185 PDU portable compressors manufactured by Chicago Pneumatic feature a 49 hp interim Tier IV Perkins 404D-22 engine and a highly efficient, direct-drive air end that provides 185 cfm. The advantage to the direct-drive air end is that it requires less horse power to deliver the rated 185 cfm @100psi, which means that the compressor produces more air with less fuel. The working pressure on the compressor is easily adjusted from 58 psi up to 125 psi, according to the manufacturer.

This rotary screw compressor also features a durable galvanneal steel, powder-coated sound suppressed enclosure, and a wide-opening one-piece canopy with gas struts that allow complete access to the engine and compressor components for easy maintenance.

The CPS 185 PDU control panel features an electric fuel gauge, air pressure gauge and a sealed hour meter. The centralized control system comes with a cold start aid and fault lights. The control circuit provides the following protective shutdown switches to protect your investment: Low engine oil pressure, high engine coolant temperature, high compressor oil temperature and a low fuel shut down switch. The low-fuel shutdown function prevents damage to the starter and increases the overall lifetime of the compressor.

The CPS 185 PDU is a compact, light weight utility skid compressor package designed for various mounting applications for OEM, utility and municipal contractors. This utility skid compressor is provided with most of the routine service items remotely mounted on the instrument panel end of the compressor so that they can be easily accessed from the hinged service door. Compressor oil engine and engine oil drains are remote to the service end of the skid. A single point lifting eye and fork lift pockets also are standard to aid in moving and mounting the compressor.
