  • Rotary Screw Compressor Winterizing Tips
    The oil flooded rotary screw is the most popular type of air compressor used by industrial plants. However, there is still a mystique about some aspects of this type of compressor. The company featured on our website at has repaired thousands of rotary screw airends. We wanted to gather ideas from
  • Molykote (R) Synthetic Oil Extends Lubricant Lifetime by 57% in Air Compressor Application
    To understand the advantages of this premium fluid, consideration should be. given to special demands of the application. In a rotary screw compressor,. the lubricant performs several difficult functions: * Lubricating the shaft seals, bearings and rotating screws. * Removing the heat
  • Ambient Air's Impact on Compressed Air System Performance
    Ambient air conditions have a. significant impact on rotary screw. air compressor and refrigerated air. dryer performance. Understanding. and managing equipment inlet air. pressure and temperature, ensuring. proper compressor room ventilation,. and managing airborne particulates,. caustic gases
  • Keep Your Compressed Air High and Dry
    remove oil and dust, but dryers are required to remove water and adjust humidity. How much water is actually in your compressed air system? The answer might surprise you. A small 100 cfm compressor and refrigeration dryer combination, operating for 4000 hours in typical northeastern U.S. climate

  • Clean = Green
    treatment, although sometimes overlooked, is becoming increasingly important. Regulations related to the amount of oil allowed in wastewater vary by location. Allowable oil concentrations can range from 100 parts per million (ppm) down to only 10 ppm. All air compressors produce condensate, which
  • Vacuum and Pressure Handbook: Vacuum Accessories and Systems
    Summary of Pressure Sequence The sequence of compressed air flow in a pneumatic system is shown again in Fig 28: * Air Compressor - outside air is compressed to a pressure higher than that of the atmosphere. * Air Line Conditioners - devices located at various points provide moisture removal
  • Repair job caused the accident, says investigator with FEA
    products fail. For instance, after the failure of a compressor-head cover at a Texas oil well, HS &A used FEA to evaluate why and how it happened. HS &A principal Juan Herrera found the compressor had been used for many years prior to the accident. However, the cover failed after the compressor
  • Design bearings that don't seize
    Opening up running clearances in sleeve bearings helps prevent seizing when oil runs dry. Director, Center for Rotating Machinery A large commercial air conditioner turns on after sitting over winter, but its compressor locks up within seconds of starting. The unit is fairly new and had worked fine
