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

preventing the backflow of air or fluid into the air filter. then discharged into the air/fluid reservoir. When the inlet valve is in the closed position. Figure 2-2. A minimum pressure feature is provided in the service line to limit the maximum air velocity through the separator. a partial vacuum is produced at the compressor inlet. Most models are equipped with a positive displacement fluid pump mounted to the compressor and are directly driven by one of the rotors. In the compressor. it serves as a check valve. Positive pressure maintained in the reservoir forces the fluid throughout the machine. The quantity of air entering the compressor is regulated by the air inlet valve located between the air filter and the compressor inlet port. Fluid Flow and Cooling System The fluid in the system serves three functions: it lubricates the bearings and the rotors.Air Flow With the compressor operating. 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. Models not equipped with a fluid pump use pressure differential to circulate the fluid. Fluid is circulated through the cooler. Air-cooled Fluid Piping 7 . and it removes heat from the air as the air is being compressed thus lowering the compressed air discharge temperature. Functional diagrams of the fluid flow systems are shown below and on page 8 (Figures 2-2 and 2-3). and into the compressor. 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. through a fluid 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. Compressed air then passes through a check valve to the service connection.

To maintain proper compressor operation. The following descriptions point out the major differences between the two types of coolers. Water-cooled aftercoolers are available as optional equipment. Incoming water is first directed through the aftercooler and then on to the fluid cooler. one piece design. the temperature of the ambient air should not exceed 115°F.cooled unit. The purpose of the thermal valve is to maintain a minimum fluid discharge temperature at the compressor of 180°200°F. The cooler fins must be kept clean at all times. Water-cooled aftercoolers are placed in series with the fluid cooler. reducing water related problems downstream. Water-cooled Fluid Piping 8 . Fluid leaving the receiver passes through a thermal mixing valve before traveling on to 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. 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. 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. cooling the fluid and air in the tubes. 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. 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. Fluid passes through the shell transferring most of its heat to the water flowing through the tubes. The water temperature regulating valve uses a probe to sense fluid temperature and opens and closes.internal passages to ensure positive lubrication to the bearings. Aftercoolers The air-cooled fluid cooler is of the finned aluminum tube. Fluid leaving the cooler does not pass through a thermal mixing valve as in an air. Air-cooled Fluid Coolers and the compressor.

This fluid collects on the bottom. 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. The remaining fluid mist coalesces in the separator element as the air passes through. 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. a fluid filler opening and a fluid level sight glass or gauge. IMPORTANT: The scavenge line is mounted through the top of the reservoir and extends into the separator. 9 . Improper positioning of the scavenger line can cause excessive fluid carryover. 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.Air/Fluid Reservoir and Separator Element The combination air/fluid reservoir is a pressure vessel containing a fluid separator element. Some models use two scavenging line systems. directly beneath the separator element. The air/fluid mixture impacts the element bottom and falls back into the reservoir.

When the timer reaches the end of its delay period. The air forces a piston to move within the cylinder. for a minimum of six (6) minutes. 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. the pressure switch opens. During the unloaded/timing mode. during unit start-up. control air from the air/fluid reservoir check valve is directed through the solenoid to the inlet valve air cylinder. The pressure switch located in the control panel breaks contact and then the solenoid valve opens. restarting the compressor automatically. When maximum pressure (typically 10 PSIG above normal full load pressure) has been obtained in the air system. air is drawn in. no air is compressed. When the air pressure in the air/fluid reservoir exceeds rated pressure (normally 38 PSIG). the compressor will automatically shut down and assume a “stand-by” mode. The Auto/Dual system offers two choices of controlling the Quincy QSLP Compressor.Auto/Dual . the differential pilot valve opens. venting the air/fluid reservoir and. the compressor operates continuously. closing the inlet valve. the compressor will continue to operate. When maximum system pressure is reached. 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 timer should be set. a solid state timer is activated when the pressure switch contacts open. Figure 2-6. if plant pressure should drop causing the pressure switch contacts to close. the compressor will also perform as above. compressed and discharged into the air/fluid reservoir. the pressure switch contacts close. Inlet valves are illustrated below (Figure 2-4). When the Auto Dual mode is selected. passing a con-trolled volume of air to the inlet valve air cylinder.Standard As the motor starts driving the compressor rotors.

This starter is connected to the compressor starter through an interlock which insures the fan motor is operating with the compressor motor. a large compressed air storage capability is required with this type of control. A transformer in the control panel reduces this voltage to 120VAC for the various controls on the unit. Air-cooled models utilize a second magnetic starter for protection of the fluid cooler fan motor. This will cause wide system pressure fluctuations that may affect the performance of equipment using the compressed air. Lead/Lag . Without adequate storage.
