Carlyle's Twin Screw compressor is more than just another addition to the Carlyle family of compressors, it's a whole new concept in compressor technology.
The revolutionary Twin Screw design packs all the performance of standard reciprocating compressors into a fraction of the space - and with 50% fewer parts. That means greater reliability and less vibration.
But that's only the beginning.
The Future of Compressor Technology
The Twin Screw was designed from the ground up to meet your needs now and in the years to come. It has no suction or discharge valves, so it handles liquid floodback better than anything on the market today. Its gear-driven design results in a small cubic volume compressor that yields a high specific output, allowing fewer compressors per rack. This compressor provides exceptional seasonal energy efficiency, and it's compatible with R-22, R-134a and other new HFC refrigerants.
Simply put, the Twin Screw compressor is more than just the most high-tech, high-performance compressor available today - it's the future of compressor technology.
When you're looking for a compressor to provide reliable performance both today and in the future, look to the Twin Screw. Constructed with fewer moving parts than comparable reciprocating compressors and utilizing a soft compression technology, the Twin Screw is relatively vibration-free. That means less chance of line breakage and refrigerant loss. Plus, with no discharge or suction valves, the Twin Screw is much more tolerant of system transients that can occur at the end of defrost cycles and during expansion valve malfunctions.
Another feature that makes the Twin Screw's reliability second to none is the high pressure oil feed. That makes its lubrication system more reliable - and it completely eliminates the potential for servicing and changing oil pumps in the field.
With environmental guidelines changing as often as they do these days, you need compressors that offer refrigerant flexibility. That's why we've designed the Twin Screw to be compatible with R-22, R-134a, and other new HFC refrigerants, as well as to allow for easy retrofitting as new refrigerants are introduced. What's more, the Twin Screw's tight-sealing o-rings will keep whatever refrigerant you choose from leaking into the atmosphere - and that's good news for all of us.
Small Size, Big Savings
Perhaps the most noticeable and the most important feature of the Twin Screw is its combination of size and high specific output. For instance, a 65 CFM (1.53 m3/min.) screw compressor will yield capacities greater than a 99 CFM (2.34 m3/min.) reciprocating compressor.
At a fraction of the size of comparable reciprocating compressors, the Twin Screw, with its high specific output, allows for smaller rack sizes and fewer compressors - while supplying all the performance of larger units. Plus, all Twin Screw models have the same footprint, dimensions and connection locations - so rack manufacturing is easier than ever.
That means you'll save more than just space, you'll save time and money, too.
Wide Range of Applications
The Twin Screw Compressor was designed to be used in a variety of applications, including commercial refrigeration, environmental chambers, and air conditioning. Please see our application guide for more information.
