Air compressors are designed to provide cleaner air, greater reliability, less vibration, and quieter operation. Reliability and durability are enhanced by a cast-iron piston that is stronger than aluminum pistons. Another advantage is that fewer parts and hardware are required to simplify the installation of the compressor to the engine. The Cat air compressor has a high-strength forged steel crankshaft and heavy-duty bearings.
The Cat air compressor offers better oil control, reducing oil carryover that degrades cleanliness of the air supply. Longer head bolts and the full-length water-cooled cylinder bores provide optimum clamp loading and cooler discharge air. These contribute to reducing bore distortion and improving oil carryover.
