APPLETON, Wis. (June 25, 2014) — The new Big Blue® 800 Duo Air Pak™ and Big Blue 800 Duo Pro diesel-engine welder/generators from Miller deliver more power, flexibility, improved weld control and dual operation capabilities.
Users will get estimated fuel savings of 34 percent with the dual-operator machines, when compared to two single-operator units. The revamped Big Blue machines offer multioperator flexibility, perfect for applications with limited space, such as construction jobsites.
“Miller has redesigned its diesel engine-driven welder/generators to maximize power output and fuel efficiency,” said Joe Gitter, industrial engine drive product manager for Miller Electric Mfg. Co. “The result is a full product lineup of exceptionally powerful and robust diesel engine-driven welder/generators.”
A 33 percent increase in rated power output results in 27,000 watts of generator power and up to 800 amps of weld power for a single operator or 400 amps each for two weld operators. Additional inverters can be plugged into the machines to create a multioperator work platform, with operators able to weld and get three-phase power at the same time.
The multiprocess machines provide improved weld control that increases arc quality and optimizes welding output, resulting in better welds on thicker material.
The new engines, compliant with Tier 4 Final emission regulations from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, offer reliability, optimized performance, fewer emissions and reduced maintenance.
In addition to fuel savings on a per-arc basis, the dual-operator feature also saves space on the work truck and jobsite, with lower maintenance costs compared to two separate machines.
The Air Pak model adds an Ingersoll Rand screw-type air compressor with 30,000-hour life expectancy for gouging in heavy equipment repairs and maintenance. It also can operate a full range of pneumatic tools, supplying up to 60 cfm of air at 100 psi with a 100 percent duty cycle.
