An air compressor is a device with which gas can be compressed. The air compressor is similar to a water pump. Most air compressors are reciprocating piston, rotary vane or screw compressors. Centrifugal compressors are very large applications.


What are the requirements for the installation site of the air compressor?


1.When installing the air compressor, a wide and well-lit space is required to facilitate operation and maintenance.

2.The relative humidity should be low, the dust exposure should be low, the air should be clean and well ventilated, away from flammable and explosive, corrosive chemicals and harmful and unsafe objects, and places where dust is released should be avoided.

3.When the air compressor is installed, the ambient temperature at the installation site should be higher than 5°C in winter and lower than 40°C in summer, because the higher the ambient temperature, the higher the exhaust temperature of the air compressor, which affects the performance of the compressor, it is necessary to install the installation site, ventilation or cooling devices should be installed.

4.If the factory environment is bad and there is a lot of dust, pre-filtration must be installed.

5.The air compressors at the site should be arranged in a single row.

6.Reserve a passage, and those who meet the requirements can install a crane to facilitate the maintenance of the air compressor systems.

7.Reserve a maintenance place, and there must be at least 70 cm distance between the air compressor and the wall.

8.The air compressor should be at least one meter away from the airspace.


What should we pay attention to when operating an air compressor?


1.When operating the air compressor, note that it needs to be checked before the first start after prolonged non-use by cranking, and pay attention to whether there are any phenomena such as collisions, jamming or abnormal noise.

2. The machine must be started in the unloaded state. After idling is normal, the compressor will gradually enter load operation.

3.When the air compressor is in operation, after normal operation, always pay attention to the indicators of the various instruments and adjust them at any time.


What is the purpose of the air compressor?


As air force: After compressed air, it can be used as power, mechanical and pneumatic tools, as well as control instruments and automation devices, instrument control and automation devices, such as tool changing in machining centers. For gas transport: The air compressor is also used for the transport and filling of gas pipelines, such as for the transport of long distance gas and natural gas, for the filling of chlorine-1 gas and carbon dioxide, etc.
