SAFETY SHUTDOWN
CHECK HIGH AIR TEMPERATURE
There is a high discharge air temperature shutdown function built into the Intellisys on each compressor.It is fa c t o ry pre-set
at 228°F (109°C).This function should be checked at regular intervals for proper operation, once a month is recommended.
The procedure is:

1. B l o ck off the cooling air discharge.


2. The compressor discharge temperature will rise at a rapid ra t e.S h u t d own should occur when the discharge
t e m p e rature reaches the pre-set maximum discharge air temperature setting of the Intellisys.The display should
indicate “HIGH AIREND T E M P ” and the alarm light will be illuminated.

The actual temperature at which shutdown occurs should be recorded for comparison to the Intellisys set point and with
similar future test results.

WARNING
Failure to adhere to these recommendations can result in mechanical fa i l u r e, property damage and serious injury or death.

All air and water inlet, and air and water discharge pipewo rk to and from the inlet and discharge port connections must take
into account vibration, pulsations, tempera t u r e, maximum pressure applied, corrosion and chemical resistance.In addition, it
should be noted that lubricated compressors will discharge some oil into the air stream;t h e r e fo r e, compatibility betwe e n
discharge piping, system accessories and software must be assured.

For the foregoing reasons, the use of plastic piping, soldered copper fittings and ru bber hose as discharge piping is not
r e c o m m e n d e d .In addition, flex i ble joints and/or flex lines can only be considered for such purposes if their specifications fit
the operating parameters of the system.

It is the responsibility of the installer and owner to provide the appropriate service pipewo rk to and from the machine.

WARNING
“Ingersoll-Rand air compressors are not designed, intended, or approved for breathing air applications.Ingersoll-Rand does
not approve specialized equipment for breathing air application and assumes no responsibility or liability for compressors

1.2 UNPACKING AND HANDLING


The compressor package has been mounted on a base
which provides for fo rklifting between the two side
channels to facilitate handling during shipment. Care in
positioning the fo rklifts is important because the location
of the center of gravity is strongly affected by the location
of the compression module and dri ve motor.

Slings can be used to lift the cra t e s, but spreader bars


must be used to prevent the slings from exe rting a fo r c e
against the sides of the cra t e s.

2.1 V E N T I L ATION
Oil flooded rotary air compressors produce large
amounts of heat. Because of this large heat production,
the compressor must be placed in a room with adequate

d rawn in and exhausted is equal to or greater than the
cooling fan air flow requirement for the compressor that is
installed.

If heated air from the compressor exhaust is allowed to


recirculate back to the compressor, the compressor will
overheat and shut dow n . This heat must be ex h a u s t e d
f rom the ro o m . You should take this into considera t i o n
when you decide where to place the compressor within
your plant. Consider that the required maintenance

IMPORTANT: The drain line must slope dow n ward from


the base to wo rk properl y.

NOTE: For ease of inspection of the automatic drain tra p


o p e ration, the drain piping should include an open funnel.

It is possible that additional condensation can occur if the

IMPORTANT: Discharge piping should be at least as


large as the discharge connection at the compressor
enclosure. All piping and fittings must be suitable for the
m a x i mum operating temperature of the unit and, at a
m i n i mum, rated for the same pressure as the compressor
sump tank.

NOTICE
Do not use the compressor
to support the disch a rge pipe.

Careful rev i ew of piping size from the compressor


connection point is essential. Length of pipe, size of pipe,
number and type of fittings and va l ves must be ROTARY

Liquid water occurs naturally in air lines as a result of
compression. Moisture vapor in ambient air is 160

Moisture in compressed air is responsible for costly

moisture are rusting and scaling in pipelines, clogging of 40

Two types of drye r s, refri g e rated or desiccant, are used
to correct moisture related problems in a compressed air
system. R e f ri g e rated dryers are normally specified where
compressed air pressure dew points of 33°F (1°C) to
39°F (4°C) are adequate. Desiccant dryers are required
where pressure dew points must be below 33°F (1°C).

NOTE: S c r ew type compressors should not be installed


in air systems with reciprocating compressors without a
means of pulsation isolation, such as a common receive r

piped to a common receiver utilizing individual air lines.

When two rotary units are operated in parallel, provide an

The minimum pressure check valve will prevent any


backflow of air from the plant air system during
unloaded operation.

24
Modulation/ACS Control (Optional)

For those plants which have relatively high constant


air demand, relative to the compressor capacity, the
recommended control mode is modulation.

The modulation control system retains the features


of the on line-off line control, but provides for
throttling of the inlet flow up to the off line air
pressure set point value.

By applying line pressure to an adjustable modulator


valve, the throttling position of the inlet valve is
controlled, thus allowing the modulator to "trim" the
inlet valve position as dictated by the line pressure.

The modulating pressure range is about 4 psig (0.3


BAR) and the modulator is factory set to straddle the
compressor rated pressure. Modulation begins when
the line pressure reaches about 99 percent of the
compressor rated pressure and continues as/if the
line pressure rises. Modulation becomes stable
when the compressor output equals the plant air
demand. When the modulation is at the factory
setting, the maximum capacity reduction will be
approximately 60 percent of the compressor rated
capacity (as indicated in Figure 4.7-1).

If the air demand has decreased to a level below the


60 percent modulated output, the line pressure will
increase slightly to actuate the Intellisys.The
compressor will then shift to the off line control FIGURE 4.7-1
position, and operate unload with the compressor
vented.

It is sometimes desirable to begin modulation at a


higher pressure than the standard factory setting,
thereby increasing the modulated capacity at the
time the Intellisys is actuated. Refer to Figure 4.7-1
for modulated capacities available when this is done.

25
Modulate/ACS Control (Continued)

The compressor will then operate to deliver full


capacity air to the plant system. If the plant air

5.6 SHAFT SEAL REPLACEMENT

There are two lip type seals on the compressor. They


are wearable parts and should be replaced at 8,000
hours. While it is advisable to have your local Ingersoll-
Rand Distributor or Air Center perform this work, the
task can be accomplished by a good mechanic
following these instructions.

Before beginning any work on the compressor,


ensure the main electrical disconnect is locked and
tagged open and that all air pressure is relieved
from the system.
