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

it serves as a check valve. and into the compressor. a partial vacuum is produced at the compressor inlet. A minimum pressure feature is provided in the service line to limit the maximum air velocity through the separator. preventing the backflow of air or fluid into the air filter. 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 Flow With the compressor operating. 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. and it removes heat from the air as the air is being compressed thus lowering the compressed air discharge temperature. The position of the air inlet valve is automatically controlled during normal operation by air demand. Fluid is circulated through the cooler. Most models are equipped with a positive displacement fluid pump mounted to the compressor and are directly driven by one of the rotors. Models not equipped with a fluid pump use pressure differential to circulate the fluid. Compressed air then passes through a check valve to the service connection. 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. Positive pressure maintained in the reservoir forces the fluid throughout the machine. In the compressor. through a fluid filter. Air entering via the compressor air filter flows through the air inlet valve into the rotor housing where it is compressed. 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. Figure 2-2. When the inlet valve is in the closed position. then discharged into the air/fluid reservoir. 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 . it seals rotor clearances to improve efficiency.

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

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

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