Electric Motor Driven
Gardner Denver PureAir Series Oil-less compressors are designed to meet the most precise standards for compressed air purity in industrial and institutional applications. With advanced design features and a system that combines quality, durability and state-of-the-art lubrication technology, the PureAir Series offers freedom from oil . . . freedom from maintenance . .. freedom from noise. . . freedom from worry!
The concept is simple: No oil in the compressor equals no oil in the air. All oil, even in the crankcase, is eliminated. The unique design of the PureAir Series assures the long life and productivity you’ve come to expect from Gardner Denver.
Gardner Denver can fabricate a system to meet them. Stacking or common-base models, special panels and other options are available for customized systems and configurations.
Gardner Denver’s PureAir II is changing the way the world uses oilfree compressed air. By developing a compressor that can run 24 hours a day, Gardner Denver has eliminated the need for oversizing and back-up units that add unnecessary expense.
Oil-less is better.
Whether it’s healthcare, instrumentation, or laboratory applications, the need for pure, environmentally clean compressed air is rapidly expanding.
Expect the most from the oil-less leader.
The craftsmanship of the PureAir II is nothing short of the best in the industry. Using the finest materials, and design techniques, Gardner Denver now offers a smaller version of the 24-hour a day oil-less compressor that will deliver the clean air you need.
The Gardner Denver Reward Series offers a complete line of compressed air packages that meet any application. The Reward Series has been carefully engineered to stand up to years of use.
Every Reward Series compressor arrives with up to six standard, pre-installed accessories.
R-Series compressors are loaded with features designed for day-in, day-out performance. For example, Gardner Denver’s unique automotive-type domed piston design allows the use of large diameter, low lift valves, while minimizing clearance volume for maximum air delivery.
Features such as slow speed operation, rugged cast iron crankcase construction, corrosion resistant steel valves and tapered roller-type main bearings, all contribute to long life.
A wide selection of configurations and available options, coupled with serviceability features, make it easy to operate and maintain a Gardner Denver compressor. Compare all the features on the pages that follow. You’ll discover why Gardner Denver is the value leader in reciprocating compressors for a broad range of automotive and industrial applications.
PL-Series compressors are loaded with features designed for day-in, day-out performance. For example, Gardner Denver’s unique automotive-type domed piston design allows the use of large diameter, low lift valves, while minimizing clearance volume for maximum air delivery.
The PL-Series compressor has been designed to operate in extreme duty applications and is also an alternative to the R-Series unit. Because the PL-Series can operate up to 250 PSI in remote locations or in off-level operations, it is a true industrial use compressor. Gardner Denver is so confident in the way it has engineered and built its products, it offers a 5-year warranty on the compressor pump. The PL-Series features domed pistons, integral cylinder head, disc valves and an oil pump that provides lubricant to all crucial parts of the compressor. From its extra heavy-duty design to its ease of maintenance, the Gardner Denver PL-Series exemplifies reliability, durability and quality.
Today, the choice of air compressors is abundant. A number of factors determine the answer to this question, including the operating requirements, application, and budget.
Ideal for constant-volume applications, rotary screw compressors are used extensively in applications above 30 hp and are often limited to a maximum air pressure of 150 psig. Rotary screw compressors typically have a higher initial cost than reciprocating compressors and require costly maintenance programs. Common advantages include a low noise level, low vibration, and 100% duty cycle.
Reciprocating (piston) air compressors are widely considered as ‘work-horse’ compressors. They may be seen in the corner of the garage, in auto body and tire shops, woodworking facilities, hospitals, construction sites, amusement parks, and industrial facilities. Industrial reciprocating compressors are able to operate in a severe duty environment, have lower initial costs, lower maintenance costs, and are ideal for intermittent duty operation. They save energy in no-load conditions and operate efficiently at partial loads, which results in a higher overall efficiency for many diverse applications. Piston compressors are more forgiving than rotaries and normally operate more dependably in less than ideal conditions.
Historically, it was not possible to provide the benefits of a reciprocating compressor in a low noise application. For this reason, rotary screw compressors have been misapplied in intermittent duty applications, resulting in frequent downtime, inefficient operation, problems with condensate, and higher maintenance costs.
