Screw Element air end repairs
1.Run-out of the shaft seal and sealing rings, and as result, oil leaks. Insufficient quantity of the oil will not cool the air and bearings lubricant enough, and will be the case of equipment break, and as result will not lubrucate of the rotors effective and air overflows from the screw coils, that reduce the performances of the screw compressor.
2. Bearing run-out is a reason of changing screw alignment, changing the gaps (increasement and decreasement).
At best, the efficiency will be decrease (in case of the end gap increase), at worst, air end blocks because of welding the rotors to the housing of the screw unit (in case of end gap decrease) and block because of changing the rotors alignment.
3. Burrs on screws.
At first it increase the load on bearings (bearing run-out increasing, power loss), then the open space for the contact is appear occurs the air end block. The similar result can be reached after certain time of noise inside the air end without any reaction from the personnel side.
Gap and rotor alignment adjustment is released with using special tool, due to the highest efficiency of the air end and long lifetime of the unit is providing. The gaps adjustment are in certain ranges, which provides high efficiency.
If during compressor operation the gaps (for example, end gaps) will be adjust less than minimum value of the range, rotors heat, metal expands and it is a reason the rotor and housing contact.As rotation speed is high, shortly metal weld.
Then the screw unit can be just utilize. If the gaps are higher than maximum value of the range, efficiency decreases because of air-oil mixture leaks, as well as parameters of the cooling element and rotor lubricant are changed, that prevent to decrease the air end lifetime.
Our company repairs the air end of the following repaired air end.: Boge, Atlas Copco, Sullair, Kaeser, Gardner Denver, Hydrovane, Ingersoll Rand, Kaeser, etc. for the air end following types.
We provide warranty terms for repaired air end.
