  • More Than Air, Peace of Mind Ingersoll Rand is now well into our second century

    of providing industries throughout the world with

    innovative solutions and expertise in compressed

    air technology and service. With our new line of

    Centac oil-free centrifugal compressors, Ingersoll

    Rand continues the tradition of Simplicity by Design— fewer parts and integrated component — and takes compressed air reliability, effi ciency and productivity to even higher levels.

    Ingersoll Rand has demonstrated an ongoing

    commitment to excellence in product design,

    manufacture and air quality. When it comes to

    centrifugal compressors, you can count on Ingersoll

    Rand to deliver the peace of mind that comes only

    from dealing with the world leader.

    Ingersoll Rand provides the complete compressed

    air solutions to following industries since years…

    Reliability Energy Savings

    A complete compressed air system is much more than an air

    compressor. It’s the complete system - the piping, fi lters, dryers,

    drains, hoses, valves and point-of-use tools. And it all needs to work

    at peak effi ciency with the quality and reliability to get the job done.

  • Powered by Experience Ingersoll Rand is the worldwide leader in centrifugal

    technology. In 1911, Ingersoll Rand started

    development of the centrifugal compressors.

    The design capabilities of Ingersoll Rand led to

    the creation of the Centac product line in 1968.

    Currently, more than 20,000 Centac compressors

    have been installed worldwide.

    Ingersoll Rand manufacturing facilities are

    spread across the world to meet local needs.

    The Centac manufacturing plants are located

    at Davidson (USA), Vignate (Italy), Naroda (India)

    and Shanghai (China).

    Ingersoll Rand is fi rst to be Class 0 certifi ed for centrifugal compressor technology ISO 8573-1:2001 Class 0 specifi es air quality standards for critical manufacturing

    processes within most industries. It is the most stringent class covering oil

    contamination in aerosol, vapour, and liquid forms.

    If you need guaranteed pure air for your critical application, then you need Ingersoll

    Rand. Our centrifugal compressors were rigorously tested by TÜV Rheinland® -

    a global leader in independent testing and assessment services - and earned

    ISO 8573-1 (2001) Class 0 certifi cation.

  • Simplicity by Design The diagram below demonstrates how a Centac

    compressor operates, the same principle applies

    to external coolers confi guration as well. The

    sequence shown is repeated in all stages.

    06 Centac

    The air proceeds through the diff user section which converts the velocity energy to pressure energy.


    The built-in intercooler removes the heat of compression, which improves effi ciency.


    Air passes through a stainless steel moisture separator in a low velocity zone to remove condensate.


    Moisture carryover is eliminated when the air is forced to change direction 180° to enter the next stage.

    Air enters the compressor through the machine mounted inlet control valve and fl ows to the fi rst stage where the impeller imparts velocity energy to the air.

    size tube diameter

    ● Designed for a higher water side fouling

    factor of 0.0004 Hr.m².Deg. °C / Kcal for

    extended life of tubes

    3) Heat Recovery Coolers ● As much as 80-93% of electrical energy

    used by an industrial air compressor is

    converted into heat

    ● Heat recovery unit coolers can recover

    anywhere from 50-90% of this available

    thermal energy

    ● Typical uses for recovered heat include

    supplement space heating, water heating,

    make up air heating, and boiler make up

    water preheating. Unique Ingersoll Rand
