Ingersoll Rand Releases New Centac C800 Centrifugal Compressor - CAPS

Posted on 24th March 2014 in

Ingersoll Rand, a global leader in air compressors and tools, has responded to industry needs for a smaller, more energy efficient centrifugal air compressor with the new Centac C800, exclusively available in Australia from CAPS.

Ingersoll Rand C800 Centrifugal Centac CompressorThe C800 is built on Ingersoll Rand’s latest generation technology, on an integrated and simplified centrifugal compressor platform, and is an extension of the popular Centac C1000 product line. Providing 100 percent clean, oil-free air, the C800 has been certified as ISO 8573-1 Class 0, and is designed to minimise downtime and lower the total cost of ownership.

The Centac C800 reduces energy use by up to 6 percent at full load, significantly reducing overall ownership costs, whilst the unit’s backward-leaning impellers were designed with leading edge software and computational fluid dynamics that maximise peak efficiency and provide greater turndown. Furthermore, inlet guide vanes (IGVs) are standard on the new C800 delivering up to 10 percent additional energy savings at partial load. Reductions in energy use with the C800 can lead to savings of tens of thousands.

With the single largest contributor to lifetime cost for centrifugal compressors being loss of production, the Centac C800 is designed with features to ensure 100% uptime. “Lost production caused by unscheduled downtime is the largest contributor to a compressor’s lifetime cost,” said Paolo Lazzari, International Business Development Manager for CAPS Australia. “Ingersoll Rand manufactured the C800 with fewer parts, integrated components — and easily accessible critical components — to increase the compressor’s reliability and efficiency,” he added.

Preventative service and maintenance tasks have become easier with the C800 air compressor, with a one-piece removable inducer, in-place roddable coolers, bull gear inspection ports, and open cooler casing which offer increased access to critical components. The fully configured C800 compressor package also provides for efficient installation — with no special foundation or grouting required. The single inlet and outlet connections for cooling water also reduce installation time and cost. These features were specifically designed to optimise and enable a high level of system efficiency and reliability.

The Web-enabled Xe-Series controller enhances productivity and enables plant and operations managers to remotely access and adjust the system from virtually anywhere. It presents real-time monitoring and trending of critical components, making it easy to predict maintenance needs and correct operating parameters from Web-enabled smartphones, tablets and personal computers.

The Ingersoll Rand Centac C800 is the latest addition to CAPS’ comprehensive centrifugal compressor range.
