Champion R-Series Compressors have a time-tested, proven design. Rugged standard features, a wide selection of
configurations, and premium quality available options make the R-Series compressors the solution to your application.
Delivering high performance, long life and tremendous value—Champion compressors are the proven choice!
Loaded with rugged features, the R-Series splash-lubricated compressors deliver high performance, long life, and tremendous value.
Multi-Finned Cylinders Cooler operating temperatures result in longer life and consistent performance over time.
Integral Cylinder/Head Gasketless design eliminates the possibility of blown head gaskets for trouble-free operation.
Balanced Pistons Aluminum alloy first-stage piston and cast iron second-stage piston ensure proper balance.
Piston Rings Two high efficient lap joint compression rings with bi-directional seal provide the most efficient air delivery.
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.
Pressure Relief Valves Located in interstage and discharge.
Large Capacity Crankcase Rugged cast iron oil reservoir has convenient sight gauge glass, corner oil fill boss and large oil drain.
Intercoolers Large diameter finned tubing is positioned to obtain the greatest cooling effect between stages for maximum compressor efficiency.
Optimized Cooling Fan/Flywheel Precision balanced flywheel has fan blades for optimum compressor cooling and life.
Reliable, High-Flow Disc Valves Single-unit, disc-type valves provide low lift and long life. Discs are made of corrosion resistant steel, valves are easily serviced by removing the manifolds.
Oversized Main Bearings Tapered roller-type main bearings provide full contact and support of the crankshaft plus deliver the longest possible life.
Balanced Crankshaft Constructed of rugged ductile iron with large diameter throws for minimum bearing loads and large counterweights to minimize vibration.
Loadless Starting Mechanical governor-type centrifugal unloader assures longer motor life by allowing the compressor to start unloaded every time.
Load-less starting (via hydraulic unloader) for lower energy costs and less wear on drive motor

Air-Cooled Aftercooler The factory mounted, heavy duty, air-cooled aftercooler effectively reduces up to 65% of the moisture from discharged compressed air.
Low Oil-Stop Control Shuts down the unit when oil levels are below an adequate level. Prevents the unit from restarting until oil level has been restored.
High Temperature Switch (NEMA 1 or 4)
Dual control Allows the compressor to run either in start/stop or constant speed mode
Vibration Isolators Isolates the compressor unit from the foundation or floor. Reduces noise and protects the unit from vibrations that could cause damage.
Food-Grade Lubricant ChampLub lubricants are blended specifically for Champion compressors for use in harsh compressor environments. They are sourced from extremely stable base stocks and enhanced with carefully selected additive packages to provide long life and superior protection. ChampLub lubricants are suitable for a variety of applications and are available as a mineral, synthetic or food-grade, and come in 55 gallon drums, 5 gallon pails, 1 gallon bottles and 1 quart bottles.
Automatic electric tank drain An adjustable electric timed drain automatically discharges moisture from receiver.
The standard warranty covers parts and labor on the package components for one year and three years on the compressor pump. The Champion philosophy ensures long-lasting, reliable equipment. Our warranty program demonstrates our confidence in our products. Each new Champion assembled unit has a 3 year warranty on the compressor pump against defects in materials of workmanship under normal use and service. See Standard Warranty Form BU-32 for complete standard warranty details.
Premium Extended Warranty
Purchase a Premium Warranty Kit at the same time as your new Champion compressor package to receive extended warranty protection. This offer will double the coverage with an additional 3 years of warranty on the compressor pump (parts & labor) providing 6 YEARS of worry free coverage. The Premium Extended Warranty also provides an extra 12 months coverage on the package for a total of 24 months. See Premium Warranty Form BU-28 for complete extended warranty details.
Premium Warranty kit has all necessary service items (oil & filters) for 6 years of annual maintenance.
The use of approved Champion lubricants are required to maintain the extended warranty period.
Duplex machines require two kits, one for each pump.
