1 LEADING PARTICULARS
1.1 General description
SF1 up to SF15 are stationary, oil-free compressors driven by an electric motor.
1.1.1 Compressor variants
SF Skid (Fig. 1.2)
The components of the compressor are housed in a bodywork with removable front/top panel. The
compressor is mounted on a frame designed to allow easy installation at the required spot.
SF Tank-mounted (Fig. 1.3)
The components of the compressor are housed in a bodywork with removable front/top panel. The
compressor is mounted on an air receiver.
SF Twin (Fig. 1.4)
Two compressor modules are mounted on an air receiver. Each module is provided with its own control
panel.
SF Multi Pack
The compressors have two up to four compressor modules enclosed in a sound-insulated bodywork.
The front door comprises an Elektronikon regulator including the start and stop buttons. An
emergency stop button is also provided. An electric cabinet comprising the motor starter is installed
behind the front door.
SF Multi Full-Feature (Figs. 1.5 and 1.6)
Full-Feature compressors are Pack compressors additionally provided with an air dryer integrated in
the bodywork. The dryer removes moisture from compressed air by cooling the air to near freezing
point and automatically draining the condensate. See section 1.7.
1.1.2 Compressor elements (Fig. 1.1)
Each compressor element consists of a fixed scroll-shaped housing and a scroll-shaped rotor. Air
enters the compressor element through inlet opening (1). Once the air is drawn in, the orbiting scroll
(4) seals the inlet opening and forces the air into a continuously decreasing space. As scroll (4) keeps
orbiting, this process of compression is constantly repeated, resulting in discharging of oil-free
compressed air through outlet opening (3).

1.2 Air flow
Air is drawn through the air filter into the compressor modules and is compressed. Compressed air is
discharged through the check valve and air cooler towards the air net.
1.3 Cooling and condensate drain systems (Fig. 1.9)
Each compressor element is cooled by a fan. The fan is mounted on the drive shaft of the compressor
element. The cooling air is blown over the compressor element and air cooler via a duct.
For SF Multi two fans, driven by electric motors, expel warm air from the bodywork.
SF Multi have a condensate trap, with an automatic condensate outlet (2) and a manual drain valve
(1).

1.4 Regulating system on SF Skid - Tank-mounted - Twin
The air net pressure is kept within limits by a pressure switch mounted in the cabinet below the control
panel (Fig. 1.10). The switch is connected to the air outlet and electrically connected in the circuit of
the drive motor. The switch opens and closes its contacts at pre-set pressures.

Fig. 1.10 Control panel SF Skid - Tank-mounted - Twin
When the contacts are closed, the circuit to the drive motor is made: the compressor is operating. The
air output is maximum.
When the pressure reaches the pre-set maximum, the circuit to the drive motor is broken, causing the
compressor to stop. The air output is stopped.
Protecting the compressor
The compressor will be shut down in case temperature switch (TSHH11-Fig. 2.7) trips.
Warning
Before carrying out any inspection or repair, stop the compressor, switch off the voltage, open the
isolating switch and depressurize the compressor.

Instruction book
1.5 Regulating system on SF Multi
SF Multi are provided with an Elektronikon® regulator (Fig. 1.11) to control the compressor.
The following is a short description of the main functions of the regulator. Consult section 8 for a
detailed description of all functions.
1.5.1 Controlling the compressor
The Elektronikon regulator keeps the net pressure within programmable limits by starting and stopping
the compressor modules, depending on the air consumption. The regulator distributes the running
time among the compressor modules, taking into account the availability and number of running hours
of each compressor module.
When the compressor has stopped automatically and the net pressure decreases, the regulator will
start a compressor module before the net pressure has dropped to the starting pressure to prevent the
net pressure from falling under the programmed minimum level.
1.5.2 Protecting the compressor
If one or more compressor modules are shut down due to a protection function a warning message will
be shown on the display.
The compressor will be shut down in case temperature switch (TSHH20-Fig. 2.8) trips. See also
section 8.3.2.
Warning
Before carrying out any inspection or repair, stop the compressor, switch off the voltage, open the
isolating switch and depressurize the compressor.
After remedying, switch on the voltage and press the key “Reset” (F3).
1.5.3 Monitoring components subject to service
A number of service operations are grouped in plans (called Service plans I, A, B and D). Each
Service plan has a programmed time interval. If a time interval is exceeded, a message will appear on
the display to warn the operator to carry out the service actions belonging to that plan.
1.5.4 Automatic restart after voltage failure
The regulator has a built-in function to automatically restart the compressor if the voltage is restored
after voltage failure. For compressors leaving the factory, this function is made inactive. If desired,
the function can be activated. Consult Atlas Copco.

1.7 Air dryer on SF Full-Feature (Fig. 1.15)
Compressed air circuit
Wet compressed air enters heat exchanger (13) and is cooled by the outgoing, cold, dried air. Water in the
incoming air starts to condense. The air then flows through heat exchanger (11) where the refrigerant
evaporates and withdraws heat from the air. More water in the air condenses. The cold air then flows
through condensate separator (3) where the condensate is separated from the air. The condensate is
automatically drained through outlet (5). The cold, dried air then flows through heat exchanger (13), where it
is warmed up by the incoming air.
Refrigerant circuit
Compressor (M1) delivers hot, high-pressure refrigerant gas which flows through condenser (9) where most
of the refrigerant condenses.
The liquid flows through liquid refrigerant dryer/filter (12) to capillary tube (7). The refrigerant leaves the
capillary tube at evaporating pressure.
The refrigerant enters evaporator (11) where it withdraws heat from the compressed air by further evaporation
at constant pressure. The heated refrigerant leaves the evaporator and is sucked in by the compressor.

Ventilation: the inlet grids and fan for compressor room ventilation should be installed in
such a way that any recirculation of cooling air to the compressor or dryer is avoided. The
air velocity to the grids must be limited to 5 m/s. The maximum allowable pressure drop
over the cooling air ducts is 50 Pa. If this pressure drop is exceeded, a fan is needed at the
outlet of the cooling air ducts. The maximum air temperature at the compressor intake
opening is 40 °C.
For alternatives 1 and 3, the required ventilation capacity to limit the compressor room
temperature can be calculated as follows:
Qv = 0.92 N/dT
Qv = required ventilation capacity in m³/s
N = shaft input of compressor in kW
dT= temperature increase in compressor room in °C
For alternatives 2 and 4, the fan capacity should match the compressor fan capacity at a
pressure head equal to the pressure drop caused by the outlet cooling air ducts.

Optional filters can be installed in the pressure line downstream of the air outlet valve, e.g.:
A DD filter for general-purpose filtration. The filter traps solid particles down to 1 micron. A
PD filter for filtration down to 0.01 micron. A PD filter must be installed downstream of a DD
filter. If odours are undesirable, a filter of the QD type should be installed downstream of the
PD filter. It is recommended to install by-pass pipes to isolate the filters during servicing.

1) Once the compressor module is automatically stopped, it will remain stopped for the minimum
stop time, whatever happens with the air net pressure.
2) The regulator does not accept illogical settings, e.g. if the stopping pressure is programmed at 7.0
bar(e), the maximum limit for the starting pressure changes into 6.9 bar(e). The recommended
minimum pressure difference between starting and stopping is 0.6 bar.
3) Is only accessible if the automatic restart function is activated. The power recovery time (the
period within which the voltage must be restored to have an automatic restart) can be set between
10 and 3600 seconds. A delay at restarting can also be programmed, allowing e.g. compressors
to be restarted one after the other. To activate the automatic restart function, consult Atlas Copco.

This vessel can contain pressurized air; be ware of its potential danger in case of misuse.
The vessel shall only be used to store compressed air and shall not be subject to rapid fluctuation
of pressure.
This vessel shall only be used within the pressure and temperature limits stated on the data plate
and the testing report, which should be kept with care.
No alterations shall be made to this vessel by welding, drilling or any other mechanical methods
without written permission of the manufacturer.
Make sure that the vessel is complete with suitable and appropriate safety and control fittings and
replace them with new Atlas Copco ones (consult the parts list) if necessary.
The safety valve must be fitted directly to the vessel and the discharge capacity should be higher
than the air intake of the compressor. It should be set and leaded at a pressure of 11 bar.
Do not store the vessel near heating sources and inflammable substances and avoid storage of
the vessel in badly ventilated rooms.
Use vibration dampers to reduce the vibration during operation, which can cause failure.
Do not mount the vessel to the ground or fixed structures.
Drain condensate from the vessel daily, to prevent corrosion inside the vessel. During
maintenance, every 12 months, check for the presence of internal corrosion. Check more
frequently if the vessel is used with an oil-free compressor or when it is used in adverse conditions
(high humidity, presence of acids).
If corrosion is present, the minimum thickness is 3.45 mm for the shell and 3.4 mm for the head.
The legal checks have to be made in accordance with the local laws and rules where the vessel is
used.

SAFETY PRECA U T I O N S
To be read attentively and acted accordingly before installing, operating or repairing the unit.
These recommendations apply to machinery processing or consuming air or inert gas. Processing of any other gas requires
additional safety precautions typical to the application which are not included herein.
In addition to normal safety rules which should be observed with stationary
air compressors and equipment, the following safety directions and
precautions are of special importance.
When operating this unit, the operator must employ safe working practices
and observe all related local work safety requirements and ordinances.
The owner is responsible for maintaining the unit in a safe operating
condition. Parts and accessories shall be replaced if unsuitable for safe
operation.
Installation, operation, maintenance and repair shall only be performed
by authorized, trained, competent personnel.
If necessary, install a suction duct. Never obstruct the air inlet. Care
shall be taken to minimize the entry of moisture with the inlet air.
4. The aspirated air shall be free from flammable fumes or vapours,
e.g. paint solvents, that can lead to internal fire or explosion.
5. Air-cooled units shall be installed in such a way that an adequate
flow of cooling air is available and that the exhausted air does not
recirculate to the inlet.
6. Arrange the air intake so that loose clothing of people cannot be
sucked in.
Normal ratings (pressures, temperatures, time settings, etc.) shall be
durably marked.
7. Ensure that the discharge pipe from the compressor to the aftercooler,
air dryer or air net is free to expand under heat and that it is not in
contact with or close to flammable material.
Any modification on the compressor or air dryer shall only be performed
in agreement with Atlas Copco and under supervision of authorized,
competent personnel.
8. No external force may be exerted on the air outlet valve; the connected
pipe must be free of strain.
If any statement in this book, especially with regard to safety, does not
comply with local legislation, the stricter of the two shall apply.
9. If remote control is installed, the unit shall bear an obvious sign
reading:
These precautions are general and cover several machine types and
equipment; hence some statements may not apply to the unit(s) described

without warning.
Installation
Apart from general engineering practice in conformity with the local
safety regulations, the following directives are specially stressed:
1. A compressor or air dryer shall be lifted only with adequate equipment
in conformity with local safety rules.
Loose or pivoting parts shall be securely fastened before lifting. It is
strictly forbidden to dwell or stay in the risk zone under a lifted load.
Lifting acceleration and retardation shall be kept within safe limits.
W ear a safety helmet when working in the area of overhead or lifting
equipment.
2. Any blanking flanges, plugs, caps and desiccant bags shall be
removed before connecting up the pipes. Distribution pipes and
connections shall be of correct size and suitable for the working
pressure.
3. Place the unit where the ambient air is as cool and clean as possible.

As a further safeguard, persons switching on remotely controlled
units shall take adequate precautions to ensure that there is no one
checking or working on the machine. To this end, a suitable notice
shall be affixed to the start equipment.
10. On units with automatic start-stop system, a sign stating "This
machine may start without warning" shall be attached near the
instrument panel.
11. In multiple compressor systems manual valves shall be installed to
isolate each compressor. Non-return valves (check valves) shall not
be relied upon for isolating pressure systems.
12. Never remove or tamper with the safety devices, guards or insulations
fitted on the unit. Every pressure vessel or auxiliary installed outside
the unit to contain air above atmospheric pressure shall be protected
by a pressure-relieving device or devices as required.
13. Pipework or other parts with a temperature in excess of 80 degrees
celsius and which may be accidentally touched by personnel in normal
operation shall be guarded or insulated. Other high-temperature
pipework shall be clearly marked.

SAFETY PRECA UTIONS
14. If the ground is not level or can be subject to variable inclination,
consult Atlas Copco.
15. The electrical connections shall correspond to the local codes. The
units shall be grounded and protected against short circuits by fuses.
Operation
1. Air hoses shall be of correct size and suitable for the working pressure.
Never use frayed, damaged or deteriorated hoses. Use only the correct
type and size of hose end fittings and connections. When blowing
through a hose or air line, ensure that the open end is held securely.
A free end will whip and may cause injury. Make sure that a hose is
fully depressurized before disconnecting it.
Never play with compressed air. Do not apply it to your skin or
direct an air stream at people. Never use it to clean dirt from your
clothes. When using it to clean equipment, do so with extreme caution
and use eye protection.
2. The compressor is not considered as capable of producing air of
breathing quality. For breathing air quality, the compressed air must
be adequately purified according to local legislation and standards.
(continued)
5. Never use flammable solvents or carbon tetrachloride for cleaning
parts. Take safety precautions against toxic vapours of cleaning
liquids.
6. Scrupulously observe cleanliness during maintenance and repair.
Keep dirt away by covering the parts and exposed openings with a
clean cloth, paper or tape.
7. Never weld or perform any operation involving heat near the oil
system. Oil tanks must be completely purged, e.g. by steam-cleaning,
before carrying out such operations.
Never weld on, or in any way modify, pressure vessels.
Whenever there is an indication or any suspicion that an internal
part of a machine is overheated, the machine shall be stopped but no
inspection covers shall be opened before sufficient cooling time
has elapsed; this to avoid the risk of spontaneous ignition of the oil
vapour when air is admitted.
Never use a light source with open flame for inspecting the interior
of a machine, pressure vessel, etc.
8. Make sure that no tools, loose parts or rags are left in or on the unit.
3. Never operate the units when there is a possibility of taking in
flammable or toxic fumes.
4. Never operate the units at pressures below or in excess of their limit
ratings as indicated on the Principal Data sheet.
5. Keep all bodywork doors shut during operation. The doors may be
opened for short periods only, e.g. to carry out checks. W ear ear
protectors when opening a door.
6. People staying in environments or rooms where the sound pressure
level reaches or exceeds 90 dB(A) shall wear ear protectors.
7. Periodically check that:
a. All guards are in place and securely fastened
b. All hoses and/or pipes inside the unit are in good condition, secure
and not rubbing
c. There are no leaks
d. All fasteners are tight
e. All electrical leads are secure and in good order
.
f Safety valves and other pressure-relief devices are not obstructed
by dirt or paint
g. Air outlet valve and air net, i.e. pipes, couplings, manifolds,
valves, hoses, etc. are in good repair, free of wear or abuse
8. If warm cooling air from compressors is used in air heating systems,
e.g. to warm up a workroom, take precautions against air pollution
and possible contamination of the breathing air.
9. Before clearing the unit for use after maintenance or overhaul, check
that operating pressures, temperatures and time settings are correct
and that the control and shut-down devices function correctly. If
removed, check that the coupling guard of the compressor drive shaft
has been reinstalled.
10. Every time the separator element is renewed, examine the discharge
pipe and the inside of the oil separator vessel for carbon deposits; if
excessive, the deposits should be removed.
11. Protect the motor, air filter, electrical and regulating components,
etc. to prevent moisture from entering them, e.g. when steam-cleaning.
12. Make sure that all sound-damping material, e.g. on the bodywork
and in the air inlet and outlet systems of the compressor, is in good
condition. If damaged, replace it by genuine Atlas Copco material
to prevent the sound pressure level from increasing.
13. Never use caustic solvents which can damage materials of the air
net, e.g. polycarbonate bowls.
14. The following safety precautions are stressed when handling
refrigerant:
a. Never inhale refrigerant vapours. Check that the working area
is adequately ventilated; if required, use breathing protection.
Maintenance
b. Always wear special gloves. In case of refrigerant contact with
the skin, rinse the skin with water. If liquid refrigerant contacts
the skin through clothing, never tear off or remove the latter;
flush abundantly with fresh water over the clothing until all
refrigerant is flushed away; then seek medical first aid.
Maintenance and repair work shall only be carried out under supervision
of someone qualified for the job.
c. Always wear safety glasses.
9. Do not remove any of, or tamper with, the sound-damping material.
1. Use only the correct tools for maintenance and repair work.
15. Protect hands to avoid injury from hot machine parts, e.g. during
draining of oil.
2. Use only genuine spare parts.
3. All maintenance work, other than routine attention, shall only be
undertaken when the unit is stopped, the main power supply is
switched off and the machine has cooled down. Take positive
precaution to ensure that the unit cannot be started inadvertently.
Note: W ith stationary machine units driven by an internal combustion
engine, allowance has to be made for extra safety precautions, e.g. spark
arrestors, fuelling care, etc. Consult Atlas Copco.
In addition, a warning sign bearing a legend such as "work in
progress; do not start" shall be attached to the starting equipment.
All responsibility for any damage or injuryresulting from neglecting
these precautions, or by non-observance of ordinary caution and due
carerequired in handling, operating, maintenance or repair, even if
not expressly mentioned in this book, will be disclaimed by Atlas
Copco.
4. Before removing any pressurized component, effectively isolate the
unit from all sources of pressure and relieve the entire system of
pressure.
