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

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

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

inside the element and is drawn off by the fluid separator scavenger line back to the compressor. which terminates above the normal fluid level. Some models use two scavenging line systems. The air/fluid reservoir is equipped with a pressure relief valve. 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.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. IMPORTANT: The scavenge line is mounted through the top of the reservoir and extends into the separator. directly beneath the separator element. 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 . 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.

During the unloaded/timing mode. compressed and discharged into the air/fluid reservoir. 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 located in the control panel breaks contact and then the solenoid 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 pressure switch opens.Auto/Dual . the compressor operates continuously. restarting the compressor automatically. The compressor will continue to run. The timer should be set. At the same time. NOTE: Other pressures are available optionally. a solid state timer is activated when the pressure switch contacts open. This timer is adjustable within a ten (10) minute range. the pressure switch contacts close. resetting the timer and instructing the inlet valve to re-open.Standard As the motor starts driving the compressor rotors. The Auto/Dual system offers two choices of controlling the Quincy QSLP Compressor. closing the inlet valve. if plant pressure should drop causing the pressure switch contacts to close. The air forces a piston to move within the cylinder. When the air pressure in the air/fluid reservoir exceeds rated pressure (normally 38 PSIG). the differential pilot valve opens. complete compressor unloading occurs. With the selector switch in the Continuous Run position. When maximum system pressure is reached. control air from the air/fluid reservoir check valve is directed through the solenoid to the inlet valve air cylinder. When maximum pressure (typically 10 PSIG above normal full load pressure) has been obtained in the air system. venting the residual pressure from the blowdown valve and allows the air/fluid reservoir to vent through the blowdown muffler. the compressor will automatically shut down and assume a “stand-by” mode. although the compressor continues to run unloaded. however. during unit start-up. no air is compressed. When the Auto Dual mode is selected. the compressor will continue to operate. the compressor will also perform as above. matching air demand as the differential pilot valve controls the position of the inlet valve.
