V-Shield™ Compressor

V-Shield™ CompressorIngersoll Rand (Davidson, NC) has released the latest model in the contact-cooled Rotary Screw Air Compressor line – the R-Series 37-45 kilowatt (50-60 horsepower). The compressor is equipped with the same V-Shield™ technology as the larger 55-160 kilowatt units. The V-Shield ensures that the compressor’s piping system is composed of stainless steel pipes, metal-flex hoses, and elastomeric face seals to prevent leaks. The piping system is also configured to minimize the adverse affects of vibration, including loosening of connections, unwanted flexing in joints, air leaks, and extreme noises, says the company. Along with the V-Shield technology, the compressor comes in fixed-speed or Nirvana Variable-Speed Drive options.
