The Centac C800 centrifugal air compressor is designed for assembly, automotive food and beverage, oil and gas, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, processing and other industrial manufacturing applications.
Centac C800 is built on the latest generation, integrated and simplified centrifugal compressor platform and is an extension of the Centac C1000 product line.
Certified as ISO 8573-1Class 0, the C800 provides 100% clean, oil-free air and is designed to minimise downtime, increase efficiency and lower total cost of ownership.
The Centac C800 is designed with features to maximise asset availability including tapered polygon attachments to create a precision fit and evenly distribute torque and a simplified oil piping system with an integrated oil filter to keep the system running at ideal conditions.
The compressor’s integrated gears, flex pad hydrodynamic bearings and components work to reduce vibration and error-proof alignment, minimising downtime and lowering operational costs.
The backward-leaning impellers are designed with leading edge software and computational fluid dynamics that maximise peak efficiency and provide greater turndown.
Furthermore, inlet guide vanes (IGVs) are standard on the C800 delivering additional energy savings at partial load.
Ingersoll Rand EMEA product manager Alberto Crippa said: “Lost production caused by unscheduled downtime is the largest contributor to a compressor’s life-cycle cost.
“Ingersoll Rand manufactured the C800 with fewer parts, integrated components — and easily accessible critical components — to increase the compressor’s reliability and efficiency.”
