B 260 - Guidelines for installation, servicing, safety and storage

B 260 Installation & Maintenance

Belt tension:

Excessive tension will significantly reduce bearing life and void any warranty coverage.


The air end is directly mounted on the frame. Pipe connection for the compressor outlet and the oil injection etc. should be made of steel.

Safety instruction:

This component does not constitute a finished product in the legal sense of the term. Only after installation and in connection with other components does it form a final product - e.g. a screw compressor system. Its proper installation is thus the responsibility of the system manufacturer. Screw compressor systems must be installed and operated in accordance with the currently valid safety and accident prevention regulations.


There must be an adequate corrosion protection procedure carried out when stored for a longer period of time. All of the components must be protected against damage from jolting and impact. Any transportation damage must be dealt immediately with the forwarding agent.

Store in dry rooms without acid vapors, alkalis or other chemicals 1,5 m (2 yds) away from radiators and at least 0,20 m (8 in.) above storage room floor. Storage not below +20 °C and at max. 50% relative air humidity.

Technical inquiries:

The points listed above are the prerequisites for safe operation. If you have additional technical inquiries please get in touch with ROTORCOMP.
