The tip seal on the scroll compressor is self-lubricated and allows the unit to operate efficiently without oil and expensive filtration. The tip seal should be replaced every 5,000 hours of operating @ 145 psig and replaced every 10,000 hours for the standard pressure 116psi SLAE03EB oil free compressor pump.
Note this kit is designed to fit all SLAE03 bare scroll pumps regardless of pressure setpoint on your air compressor. Powerex uses a different size gear to increase the PSI on the high pressure models. The SLAE03 scroll pump is paired with the 3hp and 6hp scroll systems. The SLAE03EB was most commonly used in the Powerex SBS0307, SBS1307, STS0301, STS1301, STS0302, STS1302, STD0303 and STD1303 systems.
When replacing the tip seals, it is also recommended to re-grease the compressor pump and bearings, reaplce the heat insulation pipe, change the air filter, and clean the blower fan and compressor fins.
When replacing the internal pump tip seals it is also recommended to regrease the scroll pump at the same time. IP616201AJ is the kit that includes grease and a grease gun.
