Oil-free Compressors

  • High technology industries demand higher quality air.
  • To meet the exacting standards of industry CompAir has developed an outstanding range of Oil-free machines the D and DH series.
  • Not only are they Oil-free, but Oil-less as they contain no oil at all.

DH Series: D15H – D110H SR

At the heart of the compressor is an innovative single screw compression element, featuring a single main rotor with 6 flutes meshing with a pair of 11 tooth gate rotors, that is proven in thousands of installations.

Compression takes place in two chambers above and below the main rotor, as a result compression loads are balanced and bearing loads are significantly reduced. The low bearing loads extend compression element life and significantly reduce lifetime operating costs.

Water injected into the compression element provides lubrication, sealing and cooling. The superior cooling properties of water allows the compressor to operate at a low temperature providing near isothermal compression, low power consumption and class leading efficiency levels. A reverse osmosis membrane cartridge filters the injection water entering the compressor; as a result the water is always maintained at a high purity level.

Low operating temperatures and bearing loads enable maintenance free sealed bearings to be used, totally removing the need for lubricating oil in the compressor. 100% oil-free compression is therefore guaranteed and the maintenance and environmental costs associated with oil and oil filter changes are eradicated.

D Series: D75 – D160RS

100% Oil-Free Compressed Air – Guaranteed Non-contact, non-wearing labyrinth seals prevent bearing lubricant entering the compression chamber. The design also features heavy duty, low friction ball and roller bearings and helical drive and timing gears. Thrust balance pistons equalise the loads across the bearings, allowing each bearing to achieve its optimum life expectancy.

The CompAir compression element design sets the industry standard for energy efficiency. Advanced asymmetric rotor profiles and optimised radial and axial porting ensure maximum air output for minimum energy consumption. The rotor casings feature generously-sized liquid cooling passages for even heat dissipation, enabling closer tolerances to be used for high compression efficiency.
