Air Compressor Services is a leading supplier and manufacturer of air oil separators for Ingersoll Rand Compressors. Quality, performance and efficiency are our top priorities when it comes to designing the right separator for any model of Ingersoll Rand compressor. We have been leading the compressor industry for years in replacement Ingersoll Rand separators, filters, oil, parts and accessories.
An air-oil separator is critical to the performance and longevity of your IR compressor by preventing oil loss through the sump tank. As the male and female rotors spin, at speeds up to 3800 RPM, they are lubricated with compressor oil and as the air gets compressed, so does the oil. When the air compresses, it creates an oil vapor or mist, which creates the need for an air-oil separator in an Ingersoll Rand compressor. It does exactly what it is called, separates the compressed air from the oil mist.
Oil scavenge lines are responsible for removing the oil out of the bottom of the separator and cycling it back into the oil system. Ingersoll rand compressors utilize the oil return line to prevent flooding of your separator which would eventually lead to oil loss down-line. While everyone likes well lubricated air-tools, you don't want it to be at the expense of the Ingersoll Rand air end. Once the oil is pulled out of the separator it travels through the oil filter to remove any debris that may lead to bearing failure. As the Ingersoll Rand separator closes in on its useful life, the differential pressure will begin to climb pointing to the need for replacement.
Ingersoll Rand compressors are designed to handle two different types of air-oil separators depending on the model of the compressor. Some compressors, like the UP6 series, utilize a spin on separator but the SSR EP series Ingersoll compressors utilize the cartridge-or top hat style separator. The recommended life on most separators are 4,000 hours of runtime or once a year, whichever comes first. We understand the importance of proper maintenance and servicing Ingersoll Rand compressors, and that is why we have thousands of separators in our inventory.
