It's All In the R-Series Air Compressor Details

Oil Lubricated Reciprocating (Piston) Air Compressors R Series - Champion Pneumatics

Multi-Finned Cylinders

Cooler operating temperatures result in longer life and consistent performance over time.

Pressure Relief Valves

Located in interstage and discharge.

Oversized Main Bearings

Tapered roller-type main bearings provide full contact and support of the crankshaft plus deliver the longest possible life.

Integral Cylinder/Head

Gasketless design eliminates the
possibility of blown head gaskets
for trouble-free operation.

Large Capacity Crankcase

Rugged cast iron oil reservoir has convenient sight gauge glass, corner oil fill boss and large oil drain.

Balanced Crankshaft

Constructed of rugged ductile iron with large diameter throws for minimum bearing loads and large counterweights to minimize vibration.

Balanced Pistons

Aluminum alloy first-stage piston and cast iron second-stage piston ensure proper balance.


Large diameter finned tubing is positioned to obtain the greatest cooling effect between stages for maximum compressor efficiency.

Loadless Starting

Mechanical governor-type centrifugal unloader assures longer motor life by allowing the compressor to start unloaded every time.

Piston Rings

Two high efficient lap joint compression rings with bi-directional seal provide the most efficient air delivery.

Optimized Cooling Fan/ Flywheel

Precision balanced flywheel has fan blades for optimum compressor cooling and life.

Lightweight Connecting Rods

High-density, die-cast aluminum alloy rods minimize reciprocating weight. An integral, precisionbored crankpin bearing and needle bearing for the wrist pin minimize friction and properly distribute loads for extremely long life.
