A properly-sized and installed compressor unit should experience shut0off periods between cycles adequate to allow cooling of the compressor pump, electric motor, and electronic controls. Continually exceeding the designed duty cycle may lead to product failure. The following duty cycle listing is to be used as a guideline to insure proper sizing of the compressor unit for the particular application.


·        Climate control simplex units should not exceed a 33% duty cycle. Duplex units should not exceed a combined duty cycle of 50%.


·        Industrial simplex units should not exceed a 60% duty cycle nor should Duplex units exceed a combined duty cycle of 80% unless equipped for constant run.
