Powerex’s oil free scroll baseplate air compressors are perfect for any application where clean dry air is required. Scroll compressors are 100% oil-free so there is no risk of contamination downstream. Less maintenance required, less filtration is needed, and there is no need for oil-water separators – all resulting in a more environmentally friendly operation.
The Powerex oilless rotary scroll air compressor has advanced scroll compressor technology through the development of a completely oilless unit. The Powerex Scroll Compressor offers a dynamically balanced air end which insures vibration-free operation. The rotary design permits a continuous 100% duty cycle. No oil separation, oil filtration, or inlet valves are required on the Powerex scroll compressor. The tip seal on the scroll compressor is self-lubricated and allows the unit to operate efficiently without oil and expensive filtration.
The SBS1517 is a baseplate mounted air compressor and does not include and air receiver. This space saving design limits the amount of floorspace required, letting you tie into a separate air receiver somewhere in the building. An air cooled aftercooler is included to lower the discharge temperature of the compressed air. This results in ~70% less moisture getting downstream.
