Ingersoll Rand Introduces L-Series Class 0 100% Oil-free Rotary Screw Air Compressor



BrusselsNovember, 2011 - Ingersoll Rand, a global leader in compressed air technology, has launched its new, industry leading L-Series Class 0 rotary screw air compressor that delivers the only proven 100% oil-free air, independently tested and certified by TÜV Rheinland, for total customer reliability and high performance. 

“Ingersoll Rand is well into its second century of building a legacy as a trusted global leader by delivering innovative solutions and expertise our customers require to keep their businesses moving forward,” says Oil-free Product Manager EMEIA, David De Pril. “Low pressure, high quality compressed air is the cornerstone of many critical production processes. With the L-Series launch, Ingersoll Rand continues to advance compressed air technology to maximize whatever flow best suits the facility’s need. Our compressor delivers more air for less power with the greatest level of reliability available today.”

Engineered to the highest standards in the Ingersoll Rand Unicov plant in the Czech Republic, the L-Series air compressor integrates single stage rotary screw technology with rugged, high-performance design. With 100% oil-free air (TÜV-certified according to ISO 8573-1 CLASS 0) supplied round the clock and monitored by a state of the art microprocessor controller, the L-Series compressor offers the highest levels of engineered technology. This ensures Ingersoll Rand time proven reliability with energy efficiency savings up to an average of 10% when compared to existing technology in the harshest of applications. Air cooled models will be available with flows up to 8,000 m3/hr or 4,700 cfm, extending the full range from early 2012 on.

Key features are:

Class 0 100% oil-free air, 100% of the time: With highly reliable performance and rugged design, the L-Series offer 24/7 operation with virtually no downtime.
Robust air end design: The precision machined gears, oversized bearings, stainless steel air seals, and unique labyrinth oil seal design ensure continuous flow of clean, oil-free compressed air.
UltraCoat™ protection: The most durable coating in the industry, this advanced rotor and housing coating process ensures unmatched adhesion properties and temperature resistance.
Design for long life under extreme conditions: The reliable heavy-duty components ensure mechanical integrity for longer life and are designed to operate in high ambient conditions (46°C) and under extreme environments.
Efficiency: The L-Series are designed with energy efficiency as a priority for customers (Star Delta Starter, high efficiency motors, stable performance over time due to UltraCoat™ rotor coating, smart package design saving energy).
Productivity: Maintenance is easy to perform with quick and easy access to all main routine service points.
Microprocessor Controller: Intelligent control of compressed air delivery and easy adjustments for best performance levels.

Industries and applications that will benefit most from this new high performance, energy efficient development are those such as wastewater treatment, dense phase pneumatic conveying, power generation, food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, pulp and paper, textiles, cement, and general manufacturing.
