CompAir L-TV variable displacement rotary screw compressorsL-TV Series 149-410 kW
Variable Displacement Rotary Screw Compressors

The L-TV series variable displacement rotary screw compressors from 149 to 410 kW, uses a unique variable displacement technology to match compressor output to compressed air demand. This patented TurnValve design introduced over 25 years ago, maximizes compressor efficiency by compressing only the volume of air required, without affecting the built-in compression ratio at partial load conditions.

The TurnValve displaced inlet throttling technology is the most efficient means of compressor capacity control, eliminating wide pressure fluctuations and massive storage requirements required when using other methods of capacity control.
Unlike variable speed drive systems and sophisticated control units, the TurnValve variable displacement system is simple and reliable, capable of performing in extreme conditions.

With energy costs accounting for approximately 80% of the lifetime cost of a compressor, its reassuring to know that with the L-TV series variable displacement rotary screw compressors, you can reduce your energy costs by up to 16%

Key Benefits

  • Proven reliability
    All the way from 60% to 100% capacity, the L-TV variable displacement rotary screw compressors performance is the most consistent, delivering the “ideal” performance curve.
  • Reduced energy costs
    The LT-V series patented TurnValve is the most efficient partial load capacity control system in the industry. By coupling it with the highly efficient KyphoTM rotor design, you can reduce energy costs by as much as 16%
  • Maximum efficiency
    Up to 41% larger, the air end in the L-TV variable displacement rotary screw compressors, operate more slowly and efficiently than smaller, gear-driven types. The resulting efficiency benefits include; reduced air blow back, reduced lubricant drag, smaller leakage areas.
  • Service friendly
    Maintenance personnel love the L-TV series variable displacement rotary screw compressor range. Filters are easily accessible and no piping needs to be disconnected to service the separator.
