Tier 4 final generators bring portable energy to asphalt plants
The QAS 25 generator for heavy-duty use is designed to withstand the rigor of demanding use in the field. Considering the extreme weather events North America has experienced the past few years, providing mix at the earliest possible date and time can mean asphalt plants run before utilities are back online. Atlas Copco Portable Energy announced it’s ready to assist in the most environmentally responsible way possible. The new QAS 25 generator now comes equipped with an Isuzu 4LE engine and a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) to achieve Tier 4 final emission levels.
The QAS 25 is mounted on a frame and surrounded by an enclosure formed from galvanneal steel and powder coated for a long-lasting, scratch- and corrosion-resistant surface. The generator is equipped with a Leroy Somer AREP alternator for optimal motor-starting capability and features DeepSea 4510 controls. The unit comes standard with two-wire remote start capability and features a 72-gallon fuel tank for a 45-hour run time.
The QAS 25 comes equipped with an optional trailer with tie-downs for transport on a flatbed. Skid units contain fork pockets for forklift transfer. All units come with a standard single-point lifting eye in the enclosure for maneuvering with a crane.
