PL-Series

Pressure-Lubricated PL-Series

The PL-Series compressor has been designed to operate in extreme duty applications. Because the PL-Series can operate up to 250 psi, and run in off-level operations, it is a true industrial use compressor. The PL-Series features domed pistons, integral cylinder head, disc valves, and an oil pump that provides lubricant to all crucial parts of the compressor. From its extra heavy duty design to its ease of maintenance, the Champion PL-Series exemplifies reliability, durability, and quality.

  • Pressure Lubrication
    Crankshaft and connecting rod bearings are pressure lubricated for extended life.
  • Oil Pressure Gauge
    Mounted on the front of the compressor for an excellent view and easy pressure monitoring.
  • Loadless Starting
    Hydraulic unloader with factory set pilot valve provides easy, loadless starts and low oil pressure protection for unattended operation.
  • Lubricant Filtration
    An external spin-on oil filter and an internal oil inlet screen protect internal components from damaging debris.
  • Babbitt Bearings
    Replaceable bearing makes repairs easy and inexpensive.
  • Positive Displacement Oil Pump
    Provides lubricant to all critical areas of the compressor pump that require lubrication.
