Fuel efficient air compressor

A twin single-stage, oil-injected, rotary screw type model, the CPS 1800 JD8 T4F is the largest in the manufacturer’s portable air compressor lineup and can work in a wide range of applications. Powered by a liquid-cooled, six-cylinder turbocharged John Deere diesel engine, rated at 525 hp, it has a starting capacity at 14°F without the addition of cold start options. A 240-gal. fuel tank enables operation for over eight hours at full load and comes standard with a low fuel shutdown at 5 percent empty. Additionally, FuelXpert technology reduces CPS 1800 diesel consumption up to 10 percent at 75 percent load.

Lightweight mud flap

Available in 24-in. square, 24- x 30-in. or 24- x 36-in. sizes, the Air Pass Mud Flap offers weight reduction potential of 60 percent or more when compared to conventional rubber flaps, which can create drag when winds hit a truck or trailer.

Concrete densifying admixture

ConBlock CDA contains pure silicon dioxide dispersed in a proprietary liquid that densifies and waterproofs concrete. Against reference mix designs, users can anticipate a faster set with less bleed water and earlier strength gains, owing to accelerated cement hydration, plus higher 28-day compressive strength. The reduction in surface bleeding allows for faster finishing and a more durable slab or structure. Higher early strengths allow for faster form removal, saving time in the plant and at the job site, while reduced permeability improves resistance to sulfuric acid and other harmful chemicals.
