PET Centrifugal PET Reciprocating PET Primary Booster

PET Centrifugal

Ingersoll Rand pioneered centrifugal technology in the PET industry. The goal was simple, to provide the most reliable air compressor solutions with the lowest life cycle cost. The goal has been achieved with the ground breaking introduction of the C750. Building on success Ingersoll Rand next introduced C750 optimized for light weight container applications and C1050 which provides unmatched efficiency for high volume production requirements.

Specifically designed for demanding PBM applications, Ingersoll Rand centrifugal compressors have few moving parts and virtually nothing to wear out. Gone are the days of frequent valve, ring and packing changes. Our centrifugal compressors, by design, will run for long intervals to keep you producing and eliminate costly downtime. These compressors feature a non-contact compression cycle which provides unsurpassed air quality, 100% oil-free, with no particles induced into the air stream. Come experience legendary reliability and the peace of mind that comes with owning an Ingersoll Rand centrifugal compressor.

PET Reciprocating

When unsurpassed performance is required, the PETStar 4 line of reciprocating compressors answers the challenge. Robustly designed and configured in a horizontal layout, the balanced opposed arrangement eliminates vibration and vastly improves reliability. By utilizing four stages of compression, the ratio is carried equally across each cylinder. This further aids in lower operating temperatures across each stage and longer life for valves, rings, and packing. To simplify installation, all PETStars feature a heavy-duty welded steel sub-base. From in-line molding to the largest production requirements, there is a PETStar 4 package to meet your needs.

Pet Primery Booster

Large bottle production operations often consume great quantities of high-pressure and low-pressure air. For certain customers, who choose to invest in a modular system, Ingersoll Rand can provide a primary compressor augmented by a booster. An advantage of this configuration is that it allows for independent addition of capacity to each circuit. The primary compressor can be chosen from a wide range of oil-free rotary or centrifugal compressor designs, which require minimal maintenance. A robustly designed two-stage non-lubricated reciprocating compressor serves as the booster.

Features
Multiple stages of compression improve efficiency and extend compressor life by maintaning lower operating temperatures
The primary compressor and balanced opposed booster require a minimum foundation
System capacity can be added independently to each circuit allowing for modular expansion
Over-sizing the primary compressor is an efficient method of providing low pressure, oil-free air for plant use
Centrifugal compressors, with few moving components, require minimum maintenance and replacement parts, significantly reducing maintenance costs
The reciprocating booster, by design, requires significantly less valves than that of an atmospheric compressor, resulting in lower maintenance costs
Standard low pressure dryer allows for dry plant air and eliminates possible freeze-ups due to high-pressure condensate removal
Primary and booster can be sized to optimize the plant air system. When an expansion of low or high pressure air is needed, additional air can be added in that circuit
All compressors, including boosters, tested at 100% full operating pressure
