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

then discharged into the air/fluid reservoir. Compressed air then passes through a check valve to the service connection. Functional diagrams of the fluid flow systems are shown below and on page 8 (Figures 2-2 and 2-3). 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. When the inlet valve is in the closed position. Most models are equipped with a positive displacement fluid pump mounted to the compressor and are directly driven by one of the rotors. and into the compressor. Air-cooled Fluid Piping 7 . Models not equipped with a fluid pump use pressure differential to circulate the fluid. a partial vacuum is produced at the compressor inlet. The quantity of air entering the compressor is regulated by the air inlet valve located between the air filter and the compressor inlet port. Fluid is circulated through the cooler. Air entering via the compressor air filter flows through the air inlet valve into the rotor housing where it is compressed. preventing the backflow of air or fluid into the air filter. some of the fluid is diverted directly to the bearings through and to the shaft seal. In the compressor. it seals rotor clearances to improve efficiency. 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 Flow and Cooling System The fluid in the system serves three functions: it lubricates the bearings and the rotors. The position of the air inlet valve is automatically controlled during normal operation by air demand. 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. 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. through a fluid filter. Figure 2-2. it serves as a check valve.

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

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

At the same time. This timer is adjustable within a ten (10) minute range. Inlet valves are illustrated below (Figure 2-4). The compressor will continue to run. the compressor will continue to operate. the differential pilot valve opens. if plant pressure should drop causing the pressure switch contacts to close. venting the residual pressure from the blowdown valve and allows the air/fluid reservoir to vent through the blowdown muffler. The air forces a piston to move within the cylinder.Standard As the motor starts driving the compressor rotors. Upon a drop in system air pressure. NOTE: Other pressures are available optionally. When the timer reaches the end of its delay period. although the compressor continues to run unloaded. during unit start-up. for a minimum of six (6) minutes. the pressure switch opens. When maximum system pressure is reached. air is drawn in. control air from the air/fluid reservoir check valve is directed through the solenoid to the inlet valve air cylinder. When the Auto Dual mode is selected. the compressor operates continuously. the compressor will also perform as above. With the selector switch in the Continuous Run position.
