DOUBLE PACKED RECIPROCATING COMPRESSORS (OIL FREE)

DESCRIPTION

D-Style oil-free compressors offer two sets of packing per piston rod and one distance piece for moderate leakage containment. Purge kits with all of the accessories needed to purging or pad the distance piece are available.

FEATURES

>> All cylinders and heads are made of ductile iron for maximum thermal shock endurance
>> Oil-free gas compression with a moderate level of leakage containment
>> Distance piece eliminates piston rod over travel and provides oil-free gas compression
>> The distance piece can be purged or pressurized for maximum leakage control
>> Valve design offers quiet operation, high efficiency and greater durability
>> The step-cut design of the self-lubricating piston rings provides higher efficiencies during the entire life of the piston ring
>> Positively locked pistons allows end clearance to be precisely set to provide maximum efficiency and long life
>> Packing sets are a spring loaded seal design and self adjusts to compensate for normal wear
>> Adjustable packing screw ensures maximum sealing capacity throughout the life of the packing (exceptions: models 791 and 891)
>> Cast iron crossheads provide superior resistance to corrosion and galling
>> Pressure-lubricated crankcase with filter keeps the internals well lubricated at all times and minimizes premature wear


TRIPLE PACKING RECIPROCATING COMPRESSORS (OIL FREE)

DESCRIPTION

The T-style is an oil-free compressor with three sets of packing per piston rod and two distance pieces for maximum leakage control. Purge kits with all of the accessories needed to purge or pad each distance piece are available.

FEATURES

>> All cylinders and heads are made of ductile iron for maximum thermal shock endurance
>> Oil-free gas compression with the highest level of leakage containment
>> Since the T-Style configuration eliminates rod over travel, you get oil-free gas compression
>> The two distance pieces can be purged or pressurized for maximum leakage control
>> Valve design offers quiet operation, high efficiency and greater durability
>> The step-cut design of the self-lubricating piston rings provides higher efficiencies during the entire life of the piston ring
>> Positively locked pistons allows end clearance to be precisely set to provide maximum efficiency and long life
>> Piston rod seals minimize oil carry over and maximize leakage control
>> Packing sets are a spring loaded seal design that self adjusts to compensate for normal wear
>> Adjustable packing screw ensures maximum sealing capacity throughout the life of the packing (exceptions: models 791 and 891)
>> Cast iron crossheads provide superior resistance to corrosion and galling
>> Pressure-lubricated crankcase with filter keeps the internals well lubricated at all times and minimizes premature wear


LPG RECIPROCATING COMPRESSORS (NON OIL FREE)

DESCRIPTION

Single packed compressors are typically used in non-toxic, non-corrosive applications where oil-free gas and leakage containment are not critical. LPG (propane & butane), agricultural ammonia, and natural gas applications are where a single packed compressor fits well.

FEATURES

>> All cylinders and heads are made of ductile iron for maximum thermal shock endurance
>> A single packed compressor is a great low cost option for applications where oil-free gas and leakage containment are not critical
>> Valve design offers quiet operation, high efficiency and greater durability
>> The step-cut design of the self-lubricating piston rings provides higher efficiencies during the life of the piston ring
>> Positively locked pistons allows end clearance to be precisely set to provide maximum efficiency and long life
>> Packing sets are a spring loaded seal design that self adjusts to compensate for normal wear
>> Adjustable packing screw ensures maximum sealing capacity throughout the life of the packing (exception: model 891)
>> Cast iron crossheads provide superior resistance to corrosion and galling
>> Pressure-lubricated crankcase with filter keeps the internals well lubricated at all times and minimizes premature wear


SINGLE PACKED RECIPROCATING COMPRESSORS (NON OIL FREE)

DESCRIPTION

Single packed compressors have one set of packing per piston rod and are typically used in non-toxic applications where oil-free gas and leakage containment are not critical.

FEATURES

>> All cylinders and heads are made of ductile iron for maximum thermal shock endurance
>> Single packed design offers a basic (minimum) level of containment
>> Typically used in non-corrosive and non-toxic applications where oil-free gas and maximum leakage containment are not required
>> Valve design offers quiet operation, high efficiency and greater durability
>> The step-cut design of the self-lubricating piston rings provides higher efficiencies during the life of the piston ring
>> Positively locked pistons allows end clearance to be precisely set to provide maximum efficiency and long life
>> Cast iron crossheads provide superior resistance to corrosion and galling
>> Pressure-lubricated crankcase with oil filter keeps the internals well lubricated at all times and minimizes premature wear
>> Crankcase oil heater is available for cold climates


TRIPLE PACKED RECIPROCATING COMPRESSORS (OIL FREE)

DESCRIPTION

T-Style horizontal compressors have three sets of segmented packing per piston rod and offer oil-free compression and maximum leakage control. Ideal for confined spaces with poor ventilation or when oil-free compression is mandatory.

FEATURES

>> All cylinders and heads are made of ductile iron for maximum thermal shock endurance
>> Oil-free gas compression with the highest level of leakage containment
>> Since the T-Style configuration eliminates rod over travel, you get oil-free gas compression
>> The two distance pieces can be purged or pressurized for maximum leakage control
>> Valve design offers quiet operation, high efficiency and greater durability
>> The step-cut design of the self-lubricating piston rings provides higher efficiencies during the entire life of the piston ring
>> Positively locked pistons allows end clearance to be precisely set to provide maximum efficiency and long life
>> Piston rod seals minimize oil carry over and maximize leakage control
>> Packing sets are a spring loaded seal design that self adjusts to compensate for normal wear
>> Adjustable packing screw ensures maximum sealing capacity throughout the life of the packing (exceptions: models 791 and 891)
>> Cast iron crossheads provide superior resistance to corrosion and galling
