Northwest Pump offers a variety of equipment to keep industrial facilities and production plants running smoothly. Of the many types of equipment, compressed air is a necessary part of production throughout different industries. Because these categories of compressors will each have unique benefits and drawbacks, understanding their impacts on a facility is essential to maximizing efficiency.
Rotary Screw Compressors
SULLAIR has been offering energy-efficient, single and two-stage, rotary screw air compressors ranging from 5HP-600HP since 1965. Sullair offers complete compressed air systems to help compressed air users reduce energy costs and improve productivity by analyzing, managing, and controlling their compressed air systems. Sullair air systems include plant air audits, energy-efficient products, compressed air system controls, equipment to monitor and manage systems, air distribution products, and after-purchase support. Each system component carefully matches capacity and pressure to provide maximum performance and energy efficiency.
Single Stage Air-Cooled Reciprocating Compressors
Champion Air-Cooled compressors provide both value, quality, and reliability in one simple package. These single-stage air-cooled reciprocating compressors have top-quality bearings, cast iron cylinders, vibration-free pumps to ensure longevity. With design, dependability, and performance, Champion delivers trouble-free operation in a wide selection of configurations.
Two-Stage Air-Cooled Reciprocating Compressors
Champion’s Two-Stage Air-Cooled Reciprocating Compressors by Champion are well suited for many industrial applications. Energy-efficient, low-maintenance, splash lubricated Champion Two-Stage Air-Cooled Compressors- these units prove their reliability over decades of use.
Sullair Oil Free Rotary Screw Compressors
SULLAIR Oil Free Series of air compressors utilizes top rotary screw technology in providing 100% oil-free air. Available in horsepower ranges from 100 to 350 hp (75 to 261 kW), Sullair SRL Series compressors provide pressures nominally rated from 100 to 150 psi (7 to 10 bar) – with flows from 400 cm to over 1600. Each OFS compressor utilizes two-stage compression and is available with or without Variable Speed Drive (VSD).
Sullair SRL Series compressors are the perfect choice for applications requiring completely oil-free air, including:
- Food and beverage manufacturing
- High-technology manufacturing
- Textile manufacturing
In many operations, compressed air comes into contact with items in the manufacturing process. When air purity is critical – oil-free air is essential. Oil particles in compressed air can contaminate the processes and production. Reduced risk of contamination helps improve your business operations and profitability.
SRL Air Ends
Unlike oil-flooded rotary screw compressors, Sullair SRL Series compressors introduce no oil into the compression stage. While maintaining the Sullair reputation for durable air ends, Sullair SRL Series compressors add specific elements to ensure 100% oil-free operation.
- High-efficiency asymmetrical profile rotors are coated with FDA-approved food-grade PTFE to resist corrosion and extend the compressor’s life.
- Rotor housings are cast and jacketed to assure thermal stability
- Air passages are coated with food-grade PTFE to resist corrosion
- Sullair SRL Series compressors are independently certified for Class 0 Oil-Free performance under ISO 8573-1.
Oil-less Scroll Air Compressors
SULLAIR SRL Series of air compressors utilizes scroll technology to provide 100% oil-free air. 60Hz capacities from 12 to 118 ACFM; pressures from 94 to 145 PSIG, 5-40 HP,(3.75-30 KW) oil-less design ensures zero risks of oil entering the compression chamber.
With noise levels as low as 56 dBA, a separate sound-attenuated room isn’t required. Extremely energy efficient — simple start-stop controls result in the least energy needed to meet the demand of air needed. Deficient maintenance — Minimal maintenance is required until 10,000 hours of operation, and no compressor lubricant means no regular oil changes, no top-offs, no filter changes.
Broad product offering includes many configurations to suit your application needs. Available in tank-mounted (60, 80 & 120 gals) and enclosed multi-module models available.
Oil-Free Centrifugal Compressors
SULLAIR offers energy efficiency advanced technology. Titanium impellers are specifically designed to match the required airflow and pressure, contributing to energy savings. Low maintenance costs are designed with many non-wearing internal components requiring minimal periodic maintenance. All moving parts are quickly inspected by simply removing the horizontally split gear cover. Titanium impellers provide strength while resisting corrosion and wear.
Sullair centrifugal compressors are the only offering to utilize this type of impeller material on standard compressor designs. Class 0 Oil-Free Air for applications where air purity is essential, including pharmaceuticals, food and beverages, electronics, automotive painting, and textiles.
Under the ISO 8573-1 Class Zero certification, Sullair compressors are designed to operate oil-free, minimizing the risk of contaminating the process air or gas. T Series – flows to 11,700 CFM, and the F Series – flows to 118,000 CFM. Centrifugal compressor technology will be more efficient to make high volume air at 350 HP and greater rotary screw.
