CHAMPION R SERIES
Model: R40A TWO-STAGE BARE PUMP 15 HP
1 Multi-finned cylinders- Cooler operating temperatures result in longer life and consistent performance over time.
2 Integral cylinder/head- Gasket-less design eliminates the possibility of blown head gaskets for trouble-free operation.
3 Balanced pistons- Aluminum alloy first-stage piston is weight matched to the cast iron second-stage piston, ensuring proper balance.
4 Piston rings- Two compression rings and one oil control ring provide excellent oil control, and high efficiency air delivery.
5 Lightweight connecting rods- High-density, die-cast aluminum alloy rods minimize reciprocating weight. An integral, precision- bored crank pin bearing and a needle bearing for the piston pin properly distribute bearing loads for longer bearing life than bushings.
6 Pressure relief valves- Located in interstage and discharge.
7 Intercoolers- Large-diameter finned tubing is positioned to obtain the greatest cooling effect between stages for maximum compressor efficiency.
8 Optimized cooling fan/flywheel- Precision balanced flywheel has fan blades for optimum compressor cooling and life.
9 Reliable, high-flow valves- Single-unit, disc-type valves provide low lift and long life. Discs are made of corrosion resistant Swedish steel. Valves are easily serviced by removing the manifolds only.
10 Over-sized main bearings- Tapered roller-type main bearings provide full contact and support of the crankshaft plus delivers the longest possible life.
11 Balanced crankshaft- Constructed of rugged ductile iron with large diameter throws for minimum bearing loads and counterweights to minimize vibration.
12 Large capacity crankcase- Rugged cast iron oil reservoir has convenient sight gauge glass, corner oil fill boss and large oil drain.
13 Loadless starting- Positive acting, governor-type centrifugal unloader assures longer motor life by allowing the compressor to start unloaded every time.
