Introducing the oil flooded compressor range from Glaston

Oil flooded compressors have a lubricated compression chamber, unlike oil-free compressors that use a Teflon coating. Oil flooded rotary screw compressors are lubricated and cooled by oil, meaning that lubricating oil bridges the gap between the rotors. This helps to provide a hydraulic seal and transfers the mechanical energy between the two rotors. We take a look at some of the benefits of oil flooded screw compressors, and the options available from Glaston.

Why choose an oil flooded rotary screw compressor?

Rotary screw compressors are the unsung heroes of production lines, processing plants and workshops. They deliver compressed air to equipment and machines in a controlled, efficient and consistent way, provided you have selected the right option for your working environment and air usage. Choosing an oil flooded screw compressor is often the right option for those businesses looking for constant pressure over prolonged periods; due to the design and tolerances required, oil flooded tend to be a more economical version than oil free compressors, which are designed for use in specialist environments where compressed air must be completely clean.

Oil flooded rotary screw compressors from Glaston:

Glaston partners with HPC Compressed Air Systems to bring you the ultimate in oil flooded screw compressors, and their SX series is no exception. With the output rated at between 2.2 and 5.5kW, the SX oil flooded rotary screw compressors use SIGMA profile rotors which use 10-20% less energy than traditional rotors of the same air delivery capacity, making them efficient and economical to run.

Why choose a belt driven compressor?

Belt driven compressors are great for environments where noise is a concern, as they are a quieter option than standard rotary oil flooded screw compressors provided they have sufficient lubrication. They are also a great solution where you need to be able to adjust power and speed readily.  

Belt driven compressors from Glaston:

Direct drive compressors include HPC’s ASD, BSD and CSD ranges, providing power from 18.5kW up to 90kW, so that you can select the right output for your requirements. All these units are supplied complete and include vibration damping, sound proofing and powder coated panels. They are fully automatic and are suitable for environments of up to 45 degrees.

Why choose a direct drive compressor?

If you are looking for reliability in a compressor that is likely to see constant or high levels of service with good power output levels, then a direct drive compressor is likely to be more efficient, easy to operate and more cost effective.

Direct drive compressors from Glaston:

Glaston supply HPC’s DSD and ESD series, providing an output level of between 75kW and 250kW throughout the range. With optional heat recovery and integration with the SIGMA control 2 central control hub, they offer the optimum in reliability, efficiency and power output when you need it.
