Ingersoll Rand Introduces 1-15 HP Oil-Less Air Compressor

Ingersoll Rand, a global leader in compressed air and gas systems and services, has introduced the 1-15 HP Oil-Less Reciprocating Air Compressor. The compressor helps hospitals, laboratories, breweries, food and beverage facilities, and water and waste management plants meet requirements for reliable oil-free air and continuous duty cycles. “For customers who need 100% oil-free air, the Ingersoll Rand Oil-less Reciprocating Air Compressor is a robust option in a familiar reciprocating format that customers find approachable,” said Derek Davis, Product Manager at Ingersoll Rand Industrial Technologies and Services.

The oil-less reciprocating compressor design has a completely dry crankcase to achieve its 100% oil-less specification. In lieu of oil for lubrication, sealed greased bearings yield up to 10,000 hours of oil-less operation. For applications that require oil-free air, the oil-less reciprocating compressor offers an affordable, powerful solution. With the ability to reach a maximum pressure of up to 175 pounds per square inch, the compressor can meet high-pressure equipment requirements.

The compressor comes as a completely packaged unit with an attached tank that stores compressed air that has already been generated so it is immediately available when required. Tank storage is convenient and allows operators to avoid running the compressor for short, small bursts of air which could otherwise require a lot of energy. Stored air in the tank helps operators run the compressor less thus extending the life of the unit and saving energy.

With the familiar design of a reciprocating air compressor, the Ingersoll Rand Oil-Less Reciprocating Compressor is simple to install and maintain. It is capable of continuous-duty operation to handle sustained demand and long running hours. Due to its sealed bearing design, it requires low-maintenance and delivers excellent uptime rates.

There is no need for oil change-outs, which saves operators maintenance time. Additionally, the compressor is easily serviceable with its stainless-steel valves and long-lasting bearings. The oil-less reciprocating compressor is available in eight nominal HP ratings: Single stage at 100 PSI (1 HP, 3 HP, and 5 HP) and Two-stage at 175 PSI (7.5HP, 10 HP and 15 HP).
