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.
