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

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

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

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