Centac Compressors

Centac Compressor

Ingersoll Rand introduced our first oil-free centrifugal compressor over 100 years ago in 1912. Over the decades we’ve continued to develop rugged, reliable, industry-leading Centac® centrifugal compressors.

All Ingersoll Rand Centac centrifugal air compressors provide 100% oil-free compressed air by design. Centac air compressors are designed as fully packaged units including: an airend, a driver, an air cooling system, a self-contained lubrication system, and state-of-the-art, web-enabled Xe-Series controls.

Centac centrifugal compressors are available in standard packages or designed and built to your specifications. No matter what the application, Ingersoll Rand Centac centrifugal compressors feature:

Oil-Free Air

• ISO 8573-1 edition 2, 2010 Class 0 100% oil-free air under all operating conditions, certified by TÜV Rheinland®

Superior design for a lower cost of ownership

• Fewer moving parts
• Carbon ring seals to minimize air leakage
• Dynamically balanced rotor assemblies to ensure extremely low vibration

Here is an interesting way of using compressed air. Did you know they’re used to make snow?
