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

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

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

which terminates above the normal fluid level. The air/fluid mixture impacts the element bottom and falls back into the reservoir. inside the element and is drawn off by the fluid separator scavenger line back to the compressor. Some models use two scavenging line systems. Improper positioning of the scavenger line can cause excessive fluid carryover. 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. The remaining fluid mist coalesces in the separator element as the air passes through. directly beneath the separator element. Capacity Control System Functional diagrams of the capacity control systems are shown in figures 2-5 & 2-6 on the following pages. 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.Air/Fluid Reservoir and Separator Element The combination air/fluid reservoir is a pressure vessel containing a fluid separator element. 9 . Air and fluid from the compressor enter the reservoir through a pipe at the bottom. This fluid collects on the bottom.

The Auto/Dual system offers two choices of controlling the Quincy QSLP Compressor. venting the residual pressure from the blowdown valve and allows the air/fluid reservoir to vent through the blowdown muffler. restarting the compressor automatically. During the unloaded/timing mode. Inlet valves are illustrated below (Figure 2-4). 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. the compressor will automatically shut down and assume a “stand-by” mode. air is drawn in. the pressure switch contacts close. Upon a drop in system air pressure. 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 timer should be set. This timer is adjustable within a ten (10) minute range. resetting the timer and instructing the inlet valve to re-open. the compressor will also perform as above. no air is compressed. With the selector switch in the Continuous Run position. matching air demand with air delivery by constantly adjusting the position of the inlet valve. during unit start-up. The air forces a piston to move within the cylinder. closing the inlet valve. 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 inlet valve regulates compressor capacity be-tween 100% and nearly 0% of rated delivery. NOTE: Other pressures are available optionally. Figure 2-6.Auto/Dual .
