There are four complete compression cycles for each complete revolution of the male rotor (Figure 2-1). fluid-flooded helical screw type unit. Both rotors are housed in a single cast iron cylinder. drop-out type coupling with no step up or step down gearing used. The male rotor is directly driven from the motor through a flexible. Compression Cycle 6 . Acoustical cabinets are available to reduce sound levels. All components are attached to a heavy-duty steel frame. The Compression Cycle The compression cycle of a rotary compressor is a continuous process from intake to discharge with no reciprocating mechanisms starting and stopping as found in reciprocating compressors. (male-clockwise as viewed from the power input end) air is drawn into the cylinder through the inlet port located at the power input end. As the rotors revolve. The compressor consists of two rotors in constant mesh. Compression continues until the lobe and flute pass the discharge port. The compressor consists of two precision machined rotors. positive displacement. All parts are machined to exacting tolerances. The male drive rotor has four lobes that mesh with six flutes in the female rotor. progressively reducing the space thereby raising the pressure. Figure 2-1. The compressed air is then discharged into the line connected to the air/fluid reservoir. The male rotor has four lobes that mesh with a female rotor consisting of six flutes. Models without a fluid pump use positive pressure in the reservoir to circulate the fluid. A volume of air is trapped as the rotor lobes pass the inlet cut off points in the cylinders. Most models are equipped with a positive displacement fluid pump mounted to the compressor to push fluid through the system.Description • Description • Air Flow • Fluid Flow and Cooling System • Air/Fluid Reservoir and Separator Element • Capacity Control System • Indicators & Gauges General Description of Quincy QSLP Series Air Compressors The compressor is a single stage. Controls and indicators are arranged on a control panel. The unit has an inlet port at the power input end and a discharge port at the opposite end. Compression occurs as the male rotor rolls into the female flute. housed in a cylinder with two parallel adjoining bores.Section II .

and it removes heat from the air as the air is being compressed thus lowering the compressed air discharge temperature.Air Flow With the compressor operating. Fluid is circulated through the cooler. through a fluid filter. Fluid Flow and Cooling System The fluid in the system serves three functions: it lubricates the bearings and the rotors. Air entering via the compressor air filter flows through the air inlet valve into the rotor housing where it is compressed. Figure 2-2. then discharged into the air/fluid reservoir. Most models are equipped with a positive displacement fluid pump mounted to the compressor and are directly driven by one of the rotors. In the compressor. it serves as a check valve. some of the fluid is diverted directly to the bearings through and to the shaft seal. Functional diagrams of the fluid flow systems are shown below and on page 8 (Figures 2-2 and 2-3). Compressed air then passes through a check valve to the service connection. and into the compressor. The position of the air inlet valve is automatically controlled during normal operation by air demand. it seals rotor clearances to improve efficiency. Air-cooled Fluid Piping 7 . The quantity of air entering the compressor is regulated by the air inlet valve located between the air filter and the compressor inlet port. Positive pressure maintained in the reservoir forces the fluid throughout the machine. A minimum pressure feature is provided in the service line to limit the maximum air velocity through the separator. Models not equipped with a fluid pump use pressure differential to circulate the fluid. preventing the backflow of air or fluid into the air filter. When the inlet valve is in the closed position. a partial vacuum is produced at the compressor inlet. The air/fluid reservoir is equipped with a pressure relief valve to protect the system in the event of a malfunction in the capacity and pressure control systems. The remainder of the fluid is injected into the internal passages to ensure positive lubrication to the bearings early stage of the compression cycle to seal clearances and lubricate the rotors.

The following descriptions point out the major differences between the two types of coolers. The purpose of the thermal valve is to maintain a minimum fluid discharge temperature at the compressor of 180°200°F. Figure 2-3. Fluid injection temperature at the compressor is maintained by a water temperature regulating valve located in the discharge water line. They are used to lower the dewpoint of the discharge air temperature of the compressor to allow most of the contained water to be trapped and expelled from the unit.Fluid Coolers Fluid coolers may use either air or water as a cooling medium. Ambient air is forced through the fins by a motor driven fan. the temperature of the ambient air should not exceed 115°F.cooled unit. governing water flow through the cooler. A combination moisture separator and water trap are provided for collecting and expelling water to the customer’s drain. cooling the fluid and air in the tubes. Air-cooled Fluid Coolers and the compressor. The cooler fins must be kept clean at all times.internal passages to ensure positive lubrication to the bearings. one piece design. Water-cooled Fluid Piping 8 . Fluid leaving the receiver passes through a thermal mixing valve before traveling on to the cooler. Incoming water is first directed through the aftercooler and then on to the fluid cooler. but goes directly to the fluid filter Aftercoolers reduce the amount of water condensation in the discharge air caused by the normal air compression process. To maintain proper compressor operation. Fluid passes through the shell transferring most of its heat to the water flowing through the tubes. Water-cooled fluid coolers are of the shell and tube design. Fluid leaving the cooler does not pass through a thermal mixing valve as in an air. Aftercoolers The air-cooled fluid cooler is of the finned aluminum tube. Water-cooled aftercoolers are available as optional equipment. reducing water related problems downstream. Water-cooled aftercoolers are placed in series with the fluid cooler. The water temperature regulating valve uses a probe to sense fluid temperature and opens and closes.

which terminates above the normal fluid level. The air/fluid reservoir is equipped with a pressure relief valve. This fluid collects on the bottom. a fluid filler opening and a fluid level sight glass or gauge. Some models use two scavenging line systems. The remaining fluid mist coalesces in the separator element as the air passes through. 9 . IMPORTANT: The scavenge line is mounted through the top of the reservoir and extends into the separator. The scavenger line must be positioned 1/8 inch from the bottom of the separator for proper scavenging. The air/fluid mixture impacts the element bottom and falls back into the reservoir. Air and fluid from the compressor enter the reservoir through a pipe at the bottom.Air/Fluid Reservoir and Separator Element The combination air/fluid reservoir is a pressure vessel containing a fluid separator element. inside the element and is drawn off by the fluid separator scavenger line back to the compressor. directly beneath the separator element. Capacity Control System Functional diagrams of the capacity control systems are shown in figures 2-5 & 2-6 on the following pages. Improper positioning of the scavenger line can cause excessive fluid carryover.

The inlet valve is held in a closed position preventing the intake of air into the compressor and serving as a check valve by preventing reverse air/fluid flow through the inlet valve and air filter. NOTE: Other pressures are available optionally. restarting the compressor automatically. matching air demand as the differential pilot valve controls the position of the inlet valve. if plant pressure should drop causing the pressure switch contacts to close. When the timer reaches the end of its delay period. During the unloaded/timing mode. This timer is adjustable within a ten (10) minute range. complete compressor unloading occurs. At the same time.Auto/Dual . When the Auto Dual mode is selected. passing a con-trolled volume of air to the inlet valve air cylinder. venting the air/fluid reservoir and. air is drawn in. during unit start-up. the compressor will automatically shut down and assume a “stand-by” mode.Standard As the motor starts driving the compressor rotors. Typical Inlet Valves 12 . the pressure switch opens. When the air pressure in the air/fluid reservoir exceeds rated pressure (normally 38 PSIG). a solid state timer is activated when the pressure switch contacts open. When maximum system pressure is reached. resetting the timer and instructing the inlet valve to re-open. matching air demand with air delivery by constantly adjusting the position of the inlet valve. When maximum pressure (typically 10 PSIG above normal full load pressure) has been obtained in the air system. however. compressed and discharged into the air/fluid reservoir. The timer should be set. control air from the air/fluid reservoir check valve is directed through the solenoid to the inlet valve air cylinder. the compressor operates continuously. The compressor will continue to run. The inlet valve regulates compressor capacity be-tween 100% and nearly 0% of rated delivery. The air forces a piston to move within the cylinder. The Auto/Dual system offers two choices of controlling the Quincy QSLP Compressor. closing the inlet valve. the compressor will also perform as above. With the selector switch in the Continuous Run position. Upon a drop in system air pressure. venting the residual pressure from the blowdown valve and allows the air/fluid reservoir to vent through the blowdown muffler. no air is compressed. the differential pilot valve opens. although the compressor continues to run unloaded. the pressure switch contacts close. for a minimum of six (6) minutes. the compressor will continue to operate. The pressure switch located in the control panel breaks contact and then the solenoid valve opens. Inlet valves are illustrated below (Figure 2-4). Figure 2-6.
