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

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

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

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.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. directly beneath the separator element. which terminates above the normal fluid level. The air/fluid mixture impacts the element bottom and falls back into the reservoir. Some models use two scavenging line systems. a fluid filler opening and a fluid level sight glass or gauge. The scavenger line must be positioned 1/8 inch from the bottom of the separator for proper scavenging. inside the element and is drawn off by the fluid separator scavenger line back to the compressor. The air/fluid reservoir is equipped with a pressure relief valve. 9 . 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.

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