Air, Oil and Water Flow Circuits. Competitors use a lip seal design, which is prone to wear and leakage. Heavy Duty Air End Design.

Kobelco KNW Series Oil-Free Rotary Screw Air Compressors

Standard air cooled heat exchangers. All oil-side piping is stainless steel and has SAE leak-free fittings. Understand compressor air, oil and water circuits Understand engineering data sheets Understand and identify components of the air compressor Rebuild a capacity control valve referencing the rebuild manual Perform an annual maintenance on a Kobelco KNW Series compressor Change out a water-cooled heat exchanger tube bundle Troubleshoot common mechanical problems Navigate HMI with simulators, access set point screens via password Understand basic electrical troubleshooting Perform start up procedures Who Should Attend: The input bull gear is supported on each side.

Pressure and temperature trends are also on the HMI. Universal Module kobeco communication with facility management system. The inlet air filter is easily accessible and includes a cleanable prefilter which extends element life.


All values are also available for remote monitoring. This finish is chip and corrosion resistant and keeps the compressor looking new throughout its lifetime. Copper tubes with internal turbulators. Air is inside of the tubes jnw water is in the shell.

Rotors, shafts and compression housing have a PTFE coating for corrosion and wear resistance. Also included is an SD memory card. The Kobelco KNW Series oil-free rotary screw air compressor uses an Allen Bradley programmable controller to control and monitor compressor operation. Both provide the ability to download data loggers, alarm history, compressor status report, and the daily report from the HMI.

The compressor will not operate until oil pressure is established. Other finishes are available for extreme environments.

Competitors use carbon rings with single vents and no thrust balance. Shells are made of carbon or optional stainless steel with an ASME stamp. Sign up for our newsletter! The labyrinth type seal used on the drive end ensures leak-free operation. This reduces the overall energy cost significantly.

VFD control becomes less energy efficient compared to fixed speed when operated at the upper end of speed range. Fixed speed, also known as load-unload, provides energy-efficient operation during loaded and unloaded operation.

Kobelco KNW SeriesĀ®

The stainless steel, non wearing air and oil seals with dual vents to atmosphere, assure oil-free air. Internal turbulators provide optimum heat transfer with minimal pressure drop.

These features are not found on competitive models. The design increases gear and bearing life and is not offered on competitive models. Kobelco KNW Series air-cooled models include a thermostatic mixing valve to insure proper oil temperature in changing ambient temperatures.

An audible alarm is provided for alarm annunciation. Thrust balance pistons on each stage provide maximum air end life. Sign up for our newsletter!
