Chicago Pneumatic upgrade portable compressor range

Chicago Pneumatic CPS 250 compressor

Company introduces 12 new compressor models for the Indian market

CHICAGO Pneumatic have launched a major upgrade of their diesel-powered portable compressor range for the Indian market. Designed and manufactured in Pune, India, the company’s range of single-axle, skid-mounted or truck-portable, oil-injected, rotary twin-screw compressors now includes innovative features offering enhanced safety and impressive reductions in unit footprint, fuel/oil consumption and overall cost of ownership.

Three of the original 100 psi and one of the 125 psi single-axle mounted compressors have been replaced by new CPS 250, CPS 325, CPS 400 and CPS 325-125 units. These lightweight, compact and rugged machines are designed with a simple controller and powered by a four-cylinder Ashok Leyland/W04D diesel engine to produce compressed air outputs of 250 cfm, 300 cfm, 380 cfm and 300 cfm-125 psi, respectively.


In addition, a new range of single-stage, oil-injected, twin-screw compressors has been introduced: a CPS 450-200; CPS 500-175; CPS 550-150; and CPS 650 model.

The compressor element of these higher pressure machines, which operate between 100 and 200 psi, is directly and flexibly coupled with a state-of-the-art, water-cooled Ashok Leyland/AL 6DTi engine. Also new to the range is a CPS 450 compressor, together with two other new units, the CPS 425-125 and the CPS 400-150.

Completing the upgrade programme, at the top of the high pressure range of two-stage, oil-injected, twin screw element machines, are three Cummins-powered units: the existing 305 psi CPS 1100-300, providing 1,100 cfm, and two new additions, the CPS 1000-275 and the CPS 1200-330, operating at 275 and 330 psi respectively. Constructed with tough, soundproof canopies, they are easily transported and ideally suited to the toughest operational conditions.

In India, Chicago Pneumatic operates a dedicated aftermarket operation to support their distribution channels. The customer support service includes: a suite of scheduled maintenance programmes; a full range of off-the-shelf service kits; and a warehouse in Pune stocked with authentic, high-quality spare parts. In addition, the company provides training facilities to help distributors make effective breakdown repairs in the field.
