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

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

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

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

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

Air Filter The heavy-duty air filter is standard on all QSLP models. and hose connections between the air filter and air compressor are absolutely air tight. Tighten the wing nut snugly after making certain the element is seated correctly on its mounting base. Daily maintenance of the filter element is not uncommon in dirty conditions. Service intervals of the air filter element depend on ambient conditions and should be established by checking at regular intervals until a pattern for servicing is found. If dirt is found. NOTE: Do not ream the orifice or change the orifice size. Cleaning of the orifice should be performed. inspect the filtered air side of the air cleaner canister and the suction manifold for dirt. threaded connections. Make certain that there is no pressure in the reservoir before opening the drain valve. Dirty filters result in reduced air flow and can contaminate the system if not properly changed. Their function is to prevent an electrostatic buildup which could spark a fire. Air/Fluid Separator Element The element(s) is a one piece construction that coalesces the fluid mist. dry type element.
