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

Air-cooled Fluid Piping 7 . 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. some of the fluid is diverted directly to the bearings through and to the shaft seal. then discharged into the air/fluid reservoir. a partial vacuum is produced at the compressor inlet. and into the compressor. Most models are equipped with a positive displacement fluid pump mounted to the compressor and are directly driven by one of the rotors. When the inlet valve is in the closed position. 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.Air Flow With the compressor operating. it serves as a check valve. it seals rotor clearances to improve efficiency. 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. Compressed air then passes through a check valve to the service connection. and it removes heat from the air as the air is being compressed thus lowering the compressed air discharge temperature. In the compressor. Air entering via the compressor air filter flows through the air inlet valve into the rotor housing where it is compressed. Fluid is circulated through the cooler. 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 Flow and Cooling System The fluid in the system serves three functions: it lubricates the bearings and the rotors. preventing the backflow of air or fluid into the air filter. Figure 2-2. Functional diagrams of the fluid flow systems are shown below and on page 8 (Figures 2-2 and 2-3). through a fluid filter. Positive pressure maintained in the reservoir forces the fluid throughout the machine. The position of the air inlet valve is automatically controlled during normal operation by air demand.

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

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

The timer should be set. a solid state timer is activated when the pressure switch contacts open. the compressor will automatically shut down and assume a “stand-by” mode. When the timer reaches the end of its delay period. if plant pressure should drop causing the pressure switch contacts to close. With the selector switch in the Continuous Run position. The inlet valve regulates compressor capacity be-tween 100% and nearly 0% of rated delivery. the compressor operates continuously. complete compressor unloading occurs. The Auto/Dual system offers two choices of controlling the Quincy QSLP Compressor. during unit start-up. air is drawn in. venting the air/fluid reservoir and. Figure 2-6. however. compressed and discharged into the air/fluid reservoir. matching air demand with air delivery by constantly adjusting the position of the inlet valve. This timer is adjustable within a ten (10) minute range. NOTE: Other pressures are available optionally.Standard As the motor starts driving the compressor rotors. control air from the air/fluid reservoir check valve is directed through the solenoid to the inlet valve air cylinder. The pressure switch located in the control panel breaks contact and then the solenoid valve opens. When maximum pressure (typically 10 PSIG above normal full load pressure) has been obtained in the air system. passing a con-trolled volume of air to the inlet valve air cylinder. resetting the timer and instructing the inlet valve to re-open. venting the residual pressure from the blowdown valve and allows the air/fluid reservoir to vent through the blowdown muffler. although the compressor continues to run unloaded. the pressure switch contacts close. When the Auto Dual mode is selected. closing the inlet valve. matching air demand as the differential pilot valve controls the position of the inlet valve. When the air pressure in the air/fluid reservoir exceeds rated pressure (normally 38 PSIG). When maximum system pressure is reached. the compressor will continue to operate. The compressor will continue to run. the differential pilot valve opens. for a minimum of six (6) minutes. The air forces a piston to move within the cylinder. Upon a drop in system air pressure.
