Doosan Starts Reman Program for Air Compressors

September 11, 2012

Doosan Remarketing Services has launched a Factory Certified Remanufacturing Program for aging air compressors.


Under the remanufacturing program, Doosan Remarketing Services takes older, larger model air compressors—with capacity greater than 675 cfm—originally manufactured by Ingersoll Rand or Doosan Portable Power, and returns them to showroom condition.

Upon arrival at Doosan Portable Power headquarters in Statesville, N.C., compressors are first subjected to a 117-point inspection. Parts that meet Doosan quality standards are reused whenever possible to minimize waste. After the inspection, air compressors are then disassembled all the way down to the frame before the rebuilding process can begin.

Each air compressor receives a remanufactured engine of the same tier classification as originally equipped, as well as a remanufactured airend. Usable parts from the original air compressor are cleaned and inspected again before re-assembly. New fluids are added and filters replaced, while the exterior sheet metal and frame receives a total makeover, including paint stripping and recoating—all with strict adherence to the Doosan painting process.
