What is the main purpose of the air compressor?

1.The air compressor can supply energy by compressing air.

Many industries use compressed air to provide a certain amount of energy for production. The compressed air can be used as electricity, machinery and pneumatic tools, as well as control instruments and automation equipment, from the propulsion of various pneumatic machines to the big ones. The national defense industry and the up and down of submarines all have the power to use the air compressor to transform. It can be recognized that this use of air compressors is the most common application.

2.The air compressor can be used in the refrigeration industry and in the separation of mixed gas by compressing the gas.

In the artificial refrigeration industry, the gas can be compressed, cooled, expanded and liquefied by the air compressor to achieve the effect of cooling and air conditioning; In addition, the air compressor for the mixing gas can also pass through the separation device. It is separated to obtain different colors of gases with different degrees.

What are the classifications of air compressors?

1.According to the working principle, it can be divided into three categories: volume type, power type (speed type or turbine type), thermal type compressor.

2.According to the lubrication process, one can distinguish between oil-free and oil-lubricated air compressors.

3.After performance, it can be divided into: low noise, variable frequency, explosion proof and other air compressors.

4.According to the purpose, it can be divided into: refrigerator compressor, air conditioning compressor, refrigerant compressor, oilfield compressor, natural gas filling station, rock drill, pneumatic tool, vehicle brakes, door and window open and close, textile machinery for tire inflation, plastic machinery compressors, mining compressors, marine compressors, medical compressors, sandblasting and painting.

What is the principle of the air compressor?

The working principle of the centrifugal compressor is that after entering the impeller of the centrifugal compressor, the gas rotates with the impeller at high speed under the action of the impeller blade, while under the action of the rotating centrifugal force it flows to the outlet of the impeller, and its pressure energy and kinetic energy are improved by the diffusion effect of the impeller. After the gas enters the diffuser, the kinetic energy is further converted into pressure energy, and the gas flows through the bend of the backflow device into the impeller of the next stage for further compression, so that the gas pressure can meet the requirements of the process.
