Ingersoll Rand is introducing the Centac C800 centrifugal air compressor for assembly, automotive food and beverage, oil and gas, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, processing and other industrial manufacturing applications. Certified as ISO 8573-1Class 0, the C800 provides 100 percent clean, oil-free air, and is designed to minimize downtime, increase efficiency and lower total cost of ownership. The optimized components and systems reduce energy use by up to 6% at full load. The backward-leaning impellers are designed with leading edge software and computational fluid dynamics that maximize peak efficiency and provide greater turndown. Furthermore, inlet guide vanes (IGVs) are standard on the new C800 delivering additional energy savings at partial load. Maintenance is easier with a one-piece removable inducer, in-place roddable coolers, bull gear inspection ports, and open cooler casing which offer increased access to critical components. The fully configured compressor package also affords efficient installation — no special foundation or grouting required. The single inlet and outlet connections for cooling water reduce installation time and cost. These features were specifically designed to optimize and enable system efficiency and reliability.
