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

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

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

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

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