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

Fluid Flow and Cooling System The fluid in the system serves three functions: it lubricates the bearings and the rotors. and it removes heat from the air as the air is being compressed thus lowering the compressed air discharge temperature. 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. In the compressor. Positive pressure maintained in the reservoir forces the fluid throughout the machine. The position of the air inlet valve is automatically controlled during normal operation by air demand.Air Flow With the compressor operating. it serves as a check valve. and into the compressor. some of the fluid is diverted directly to the bearings through and to the shaft seal. 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. Compressed air then passes through a check valve to the service connection. Figure 2-2. Air-cooled Fluid Piping 7 . then discharged into the air/fluid reservoir. 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 partial vacuum is produced at the compressor inlet. Air entering via the compressor air filter flows through the air inlet valve into the rotor housing where it is compressed. Fluid is circulated through the cooler. Models not equipped with a fluid pump use pressure differential to circulate the fluid. through a fluid filter. it seals rotor clearances to improve efficiency. Functional diagrams of the fluid flow systems are shown below and on page 8 (Figures 2-2 and 2-3). Most models are equipped with a positive displacement fluid pump mounted to the compressor and are directly driven by one of the rotors.

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

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

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