Contact-Cooled Compressors Maintain Steady Temperatures
Ingersoll Rand has released a newly redesigned version of its contact-cooled rotary screw air compressors.
The new contact-cooled compressors maintain a steady 115 degree (46 C) running temperature, which ensures greater tolerance of environmental influences that often create overheat events and nuisance shutdowns with other compressors, according to the company.
Additionally, Ingersoll Rand’s sickle-shaped blade design is said to deliver more efficient cooling by reducing drag while reducing noise emission. And the Ingersoll Rand Integral Gear Drive arrangement, which features smooth-running helical gears that compensate thrust for optimized performance, boasts efficient operation with longer life.
The Ingersoll Rand contact-cooled rotary screw compressors feature a proprietary Intelligent Controller that delivers:
• Intuitive operator control with easy-to-understand user LCD graphic interface;
• Selectable software with adjustable operating parameters;
• Built-in sequencer that can coordinate up to three machines;
• “Rapid Stop” Power Conservation System that eliminates unloaded running time, lowers energy costs and protects motors, according to the company.
