The air compressor is the main component of the air supply unit. It is a device that converts the mechanical energy of the drive machine (usually an electric motor) into gas pressure energy and is a compressed air pressure device.

What are air compressors used for?

air compressors are used for many purposes, such as supplying gas cylinders with clean high pressure air, for divers with clean medium pressure air, for actuating certain valves in pneumatic HVAC control systems in office and school buildings, for providing large amounts of medium pressure air to drive compressed air tools such as compressed air hammers, for filling high-pressure air tanks (HPA, air tanks) for filling tires and for generating large volumes of medium-pressure air for large industrial processes (e.g. for the oxidation of petroleum coke or baghouse systems in cement plants).

What is the use value of an air compressor?

If you have a flat tire, you may think of an air compressor first. But what if you are a carpenter or need a pressure washer? Even if you may not think of an air compressor in these cases, you will be overwhelmed by the versatility of a high-quality air compressor. An air compressor is a versatile tool. A handy tool you need when repairing, painting, sandblasting or cleaning up a puncture.

air compressors can power and operate various compressed air tools, working in the background and not themselves. It may not have a clear purpose, but if you combine it with other tools, you can get the most out of it. A compressed air compressor makes your work easier and less time consuming. Let's take a closer look at the many uses of an air compressor and find out why you should buy a compressor.

What is the basis for choosing an air compressor?

The choice of air compressor depends mainly on the working pressure and flow rate of the pneumatic system.

The working pressure of the air source should be about 20% higher than the maximum working pressure in the pneumatic system, as the loss on the way and the local loss in the air supply line must be taken into account. If the required working pressure is lower in some parts of the system, a pressure reducing valve can be used for the air supply. The rated outlet pressure of the air compressor is divided into low pressure (0.7~1.0MPa), medium pressure (1.0~10MPa), high pressure (10~100MPa) and ultra high pressure (over 100MPa), which can be selected according to the actual needs. The usual pressure is generally 0.7-1.25.

First, choose the type of air compressor according to the characteristics of the air compressor. Then determine the output pressure pc and the intake flow qc of the air compressor based on the two parameters working pressure and flow required for the pneumatic system, and finally select the model of the air compressor.
