The compressor consists of two rotors in constant mesh. All parts are machined to exacting tolerances.Section II . 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 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. The compressed air is then discharged into the line connected to the air/fluid reservoir. Figure 2-1. (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 rotor is directly driven from the motor through a flexible. The male rotor has four lobes that mesh with a female rotor consisting of six flutes. The compressor consists of two precision machined rotors. The unit has an inlet port at the power input end and a discharge port at the opposite end. All components are attached to a heavy-duty steel frame. Compression continues until the lobe and flute pass the discharge port. drop-out type coupling with no step up or step down gearing used. Both rotors are housed in a single cast iron cylinder. Compression Cycle 6 . Acoustical cabinets are available to reduce sound levels.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. A volume of air is trapped as the rotor lobes pass the inlet cut off points in the cylinders. positive displacement. Compression occurs as the male rotor rolls into the female flute. As the rotors revolve. 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. progressively reducing the space thereby raising the pressure. 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).

Air-cooled Fluid Piping 7 . Functional diagrams of the fluid flow systems are shown below and on page 8 (Figures 2-2 and 2-3). it serves as a check valve. In the compressor. preventing the backflow of air or fluid into the air filter. Fluid is circulated through the cooler. and it removes heat from the air as the air is being compressed thus lowering the compressed air discharge temperature. Models not equipped with a fluid pump use pressure differential to circulate the fluid. Fluid Flow and Cooling System The fluid in the system serves three functions: it lubricates the bearings and the rotors. and into the compressor. a partial vacuum is produced at the compressor inlet. 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. 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. it seals rotor clearances to improve efficiency. some of the fluid is diverted directly to the bearings through and to the shaft seal. 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. Compressed air then passes through a check valve to the service connection. A minimum pressure feature is provided in the service line to limit the maximum air velocity through the separator. 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.Air Flow With the compressor operating. then discharged into the air/fluid reservoir. 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. Figure 2-2.

Fluid leaving the cooler does not pass through a thermal mixing valve as in an air. Fluid injection temperature at the compressor is maintained by a water temperature regulating valve located in the discharge water line. Ambient air is forced through the fins by a motor driven fan. The cooler fins must be kept clean at all times. Fluid leaving the receiver passes through a thermal mixing valve before traveling on to the cooler. Water-cooled aftercoolers are placed in series with the fluid cooler. Water-cooled Fluid Piping 8 . governing water flow through the cooler. reducing water related problems downstream.internal passages to ensure positive lubrication to the bearings. The following descriptions point out the major differences between the two types of coolers. The purpose of the thermal valve is to maintain a minimum fluid discharge temperature at the compressor of 180°200°F. one piece design. The water temperature regulating valve uses a probe to sense fluid temperature and opens and closes.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. cooling the fluid and air in the tubes. Figure 2-3. 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. Air-cooled Fluid Coolers and the compressor. Water-cooled aftercoolers are available as optional equipment.cooled unit. A combination moisture separator and water trap are provided for collecting and expelling water to the customer’s drain. 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. Water-cooled fluid coolers are of the shell and tube design. Aftercoolers The air-cooled fluid cooler is of the finned aluminum tube. 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.

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

Typical Inlet Valves 12 . Upon a drop in system air pressure. Inlet valves are illustrated below (Figure 2-4). During the unloaded/timing mode. When the air pressure in the air/fluid reservoir exceeds rated pressure (normally 38 PSIG). When maximum pressure (typically 10 PSIG above normal full load pressure) has been obtained in the air system. control air from the air/fluid reservoir check valve is directed through the solenoid 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 also perform as above. the compressor will automatically shut down and assume a “stand-by” mode. the compressor operates continuously.

The pressure switch located in the control panel breaks contact and then the solenoid valve opens. however. a solid state timer is activated when the pressure switch contacts open.Auto/Dual . if plant pressure should drop causing the pressure switch contacts to close. air is drawn in. When the Auto Dual mode is selected. although the compressor continues to run unloaded. The inlet valve regulates compressor capacity be-tween 100% and nearly 0% of rated delivery. the differential pilot valve opens. This timer is adjustable within a ten (10) minute range. The compressor will continue to run. during unit start-up. compressed and discharged into the air/fluid reservoir. complete compressor unloading occurs. The Auto/Dual system offers two choices of controlling the Quincy QSLP Compressor.Standard As the motor starts driving the compressor rotors. At the same time. The air forces a piston to move within the cylinder. 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. matching air demand with air delivery by constantly adjusting the position of the inlet valve. The timer should be set. restarting the compressor automatically.
