Iowa Mold Tool’s hydraulic-driven IMT CAS80R rotary screw air compressor offers 33 percent more air output than the previous model — up to 80 cfm at 150 psi (10.3 bar) — at a similar price point. Increased hydraulic cooling capabilities and an easy-to-set air pressure output give operators a greater range of machine operation. The IMT CAS80R compressor enables operators to run at higher cfm levels while at the same truck rpms currently used, according to the manufacturer.

“We’re excited to offer our customers the productivity benefits of increased air,” said Terry Cook, product manager of commercial products at IMT. “The IMT CAS80R air compressor offers powerful and reliable performance for heavy-duty mobile applications. This unit is a perfect complement to our IMT Dominator mechanics trucks and IMT SiteStar lube trucks.”

The hydraulically driven, continuous-duty IMT CAS80R compressor is a single-stage, pressure-lubricated unit. The rotary screw model provides high-volume air for use in pneumatic tools (for example, jacks, saws and impact wrenches), tire service, sandblasting, painting, carbon-arc cutting and other compressed-air needs.

The IMT CAS80R compressor features a hydraulic aftercooler that is integrated into the compressor design, minimizing weight and the physical footprint on top of the body sidepack.

Assembled in the United States, the new compressor will be available to ship beginning in April 2015.

IMT offers a variety of reciprocating and rotary screw air compressors to meet customer needs. The reciprocating lineup ranges from 40 to 110 cfm, while the rotary screw offering ranges from 45 to 85 cfm.
