Duplex LPC Air Compressors

Duplex LPC Air Compressors

Something which, to our knowledge, is unique – our duplex compressor station. Two compressor pumps automatically controlled on a coincident and/or alternate basis to give additional output at low pressures and backup for maintenance purposes (or in case of component replacement).

These units can solve a number of problems – the need for
resilience/redundancy (pump wear is shared during normal use, and a manual override allows continued operation for maintenance) additional capacity in the absence of three-phase supply (two single phase pumps can give up to 17cfm) etc.

Our compressors are all manufactured with 24 litre air receivers, so a regulator or air maintenance device can be used if required.

A duplex station can be manufactured using virtually any of the compressors in our range for either 230v or 400v (with neutral) supplies. They can also be used with our recommended air dryers, for chiller/freezer applications.

All duplex units comply with LPC guidelines, and all materials comply with PED 97/23/EC.

All stations are tuned to your individual requirements, and fully tested prior to despatch in accordance with our exacting quality standards.
