Smaller compressors APS' small fractional-horsepower compressors are ideal for manufacturing such products as laboratory refrigerators, analyzers, cooling baths, and water-fountains, typically, with capacities that range from 1/20 hp to 1 hp. As with the medium and large compressors, UL (Underwriters Laboratories) has individually evaluated each and every model and has specifically recognized that all APS' hazardous-duty compressors are suitable for use in the presence of explosive gases or dusts. All APS' small (fractional) models are tough and durable reciprocating compressors, never rotary style.
Medium compressors Designers and users typically use APS' mid-range compressors for applications such as air conditioners, small process chillers, and sampling equipment. Their capacities range from 1 hp (horsepower) to 10 hp. Like the all other APS models, makes these compressors durable and corrosion resistant and installed around the world in critical petro-chemical, military and processing applications. All APS models are hermetically sealed, and all are tough scroll or reciprocating compressors.
Larger compressors APS' largest compressors are typically used for such applications as air conditioning, larger process chillers, and gas recovery. They have capacities that range from 10 hp (horsepower) to 25 hp and offer most electrical configurations. As it does with all its compressors, APS makes these compressors durable and quiet as well as explosion-proof and corrosion-resistant to enable manufacturers and users to install them offshore and onshore into harsh-duty air conditioners, chillers, and refrigeration systems. All the compressors are hermetically sealed, and all are durable scroll or reciprocating-style compressors.
