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…

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.…

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…

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…

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…
