Air Compressors

Our website is published for giving information about air compressors. Air Compressors What is air compressor? Air compressors are used for compressing air to an air receiver, and they raise the pressure of air. Why we need compressed air? Simply, cars’s wheel can be an example for the need of compressed air. In order to inflate the wheel there must be […]

Air Tank Capacity

The size of an air tank refers to the volume of the tank, and is measured in liters or m3 (1m3 = 1000 liters). The air tanks on a compressor are used to store and supply air on a regular basis. As mentioned in our previous articles, the air tank has no influence on the flow rate, although some users […]

Flow Rate (CFM, m3/min, lt/min)

The flow rate describes the intensity of fluid transition per unit of time from a specific area. Since air is a fluid, a flow-rate calculation is made. In compressors, the flow rate is the factor that determines the size of the compressor, while pressure is the amount of force applied to a unit area. The two terms are often confused. […]

Electrical Board

Electrical Board The electrical panels contain such components as protection relays, fuses and control elements. Generally, in compressors, electric motors which provide the star-delta starting are used to prevent current surges, and to control the semi-mechanical parts of the compressor. Electricity Board of Reciprocating Compressors In reciprocating compressors, while varying according to manufacturer’s preferences, generally for compressors with an electric […]

Compressor Cooling Process

When functioning, air compressors convert the electrical energy they obtain from the power source into kinetic energy through the use of a motor. Then, due to the structure of the compressor, being divided, a large proportion of this kinetic energy is converted into heat energy. The Reason of Compressor Warm up During compression, heat is created due to the friction […]

Dryer Bypass System

In the compressor setup depicted above, it can be seen to comprise the compressor, air tank, dryer and filter. Through the valves, shown in red a bypass system has been created that allows for the deactivation of the dryer at any time. In order for the dryer to operate, no: 2 valve must be closed, while valves 3 and 4 […]

Dryer Working Principle

In an environment, under normal conditions, invisible water molecules (humidity) are always present in the air. When running, compressors compress the air that they suck from the environment. Once compressed, the moisture in the air is converted into water, part of which is deposited into the air tank, with the remainder carried to the installation. The amount of liquid water […]

Troubles, Indicators in Rotary Screw Compressors

Screw compressors have a control panel and are capable of protecting themselves. If a failure occurs, the screw compressor stops running without causing major problems and gives a breakdown warning. The primary warnings in case of failure may include: Main Engine High Amp Alert If any, Fan Engine High Amp Alert High Temperature Alert High Pressure Alert 1. Main Engine […]

Belt

Belt

In belt and pulley driven compressor systems, the engine movement, as the name suggests, is transmitted to   the compressor crankshaft or the screw unit through a belt. Belts are produced, as many products, in many different varieties. The manufacturer determines the number and types of belts to be used in the compressors. If you should need to replace compressor […]

Relation Between Pressure and Flow Rate

The first thing to mention is that pressure and flow rate are inversely proportional; that is, as pressure increases, compressor flow rate decreases. Compressors have been designed to have a structure that is capable of maintaining a pressure of 7-8 bar,  using the most appropriate electric engine and materials. In general, air consuming devices in the industry are compatible with […]

Suction Valve

Suction Valve

In screw air compressors, the suction valve is the component fixed to the body of the screw block, which controls the air intake. It is a valve controlled by solenoid valves, whose size may vary by compressor capacity. There are different types of suction valves, as compressor manufacturers use suction valves appropriate for their models. Some suction valves operate in […]
