  • Introduction


    About Cooper TurbocompressorCooper Turbocompressors reputation as a worldwide leader in the design and manufacture of hightechnology centrifugal compressors is based upon an engineering tradition that spans over fourdecades.

    This tradition of technological innovation and leadership began in 1955, when the former JoyManufacturing Company developed the first integrally geared centrifugal compressor. In time, theJoy Manufacturing Company grew and eventually emerged as Cooper Turbocompressor. The originalmachine developed in those early years became the prototype for the ingenious design that continuesto be the defining standard for oil-free centrifugal compressors.

    The dependability, efficiency, and adaptability of its product line have established CooperTurbocompressor as a global leader in the production of high technology centrifugal compressors.From the early MSG model through the C-8 model to the recent Enhanced Turbo Air 2000 Compressorand the Turbo Air 3000 Compressor, these compressors are known for their ease of automation andhigh operating reliability. Cooper Turbocompressor centrifugal compressors operate in a diverse array ofinstallations that spans six continents. International concern for a cleaner environment has also moti-vated users to choose these Cooper Turbocompressor products, which allow them to harness thepower of oil-free compressed air as well as to minimize the ratio of energy consumption required.

    The Buffalo, New York, USA, dedicated complex includes the home office, the manufacturing plant, astate-of-the-art research and development facility and the training school. These resources, along witha worldwide network of sales distributors and trained and authorized service representatives, enableCooper Turbocompressor, Inc. to provide the very best products and service to those industries whichhave come to rely on Cooper Turbocompressor centrifugal compressors.

    Cooper Turbocompressor is ISO 9001 Certified.

    The Turbo Air 3000 Centrifugal CompressorThe Turbo Air 3000 Centrifugal Compressor is a state of the art source of oil-free air manufactured withthe users needs in mind. The simple but rugged mechanical design provides many advantages. Itcombines the best features of aerodynamic technology to achieve optimum energy efficiency, and itdelivers lower horsepower to cubic feet per minute (CFM) ratios than any other oil-free centrifugalcompressor available.

    The Most AdvancedCompressor Components AvailableThe Turbo Air 3000 Compressor includes internal components which are unique to the industry. Supe-rior pinion bearings designed for unlimited life and operation at any load. Non-contacting, non-wearing labyrinth air and oil seals that require no buffering to ensure oil-free compressed air. Impellersthat are an advanced design which combines the best features of a sigma-radial impeller and a back-ward-leaning impeller. Vaned diffusers that are matched to the impellers for incomparable efficiency.Finally, inlet guide vanes that are mounted close to the impeller to achieve maximum benefit.

    The Vantage Control SystemThe Vantage control system is standard on the Turbo Air Compressor package. Vantage provides thecompressor owner with high performance solutions through faster response times, improved reliabilityand reduced energy costs over other OEM or PLC controllers. This state-of-the-art system is compatiblewith all other centrifugal, reciprocating, and rotary screw compressors. The Vantage system wasdeveloped as a result of a strategic alliance formed between Cooper Turbocompressor and Bay Con-trols.

    The various control modes available provide optimal efficiency in even the most demanding applica-tions, or, when necessary, maintain air system pressure at a uniform level.

    NOTE: The Turbo Air 3000 Compressor package is not a complete, stand-alone compressed airsystem. To complete the system, additional components (such as main drive motor starter, oil pumpstarter, manifolds, inlet air filters, silencers, expansion joints, etc.) are also required. CooperTurbocompressor offers a selection of optional equipment as part of the package or as add-ons afterinstallation.
