Much like a reciprocating air compressor a rotary screw compressor is also a positive-displacement type compressor that works by forcing air into a smaller area through two inter-meshing rotors inside the same housing. The design of each rotor will differ based on model or manufacturer but work on the same principle – compressing the air … Continue reading Benefits of a Rotary Screw Compressor
As previously discussed there are many types of air compressors but the most popular overall are reciprocating compressors. Using a piston system similar to the kind used in automobiles it pushes air into a smaller space which results in an increase in pressure – this principle is called positive displacement. One of the benefits of … Continue reading The Types of Reciprocating Air Compressors
There have been a lot of ways developed to mechanically compress air. Each method has advantages and disadvantages but in order to make the right decision for your needs it’s important to have a general overview of each kind of air compressor and how they work. These are the most common types of air compressors … Continue reading The Different Kinds of Air Compressors
Compressed air is a useful part of any industrial environment and there’s a tendency to use it for a number of tasks for which it may not be ideal. These incorrect, or inappropriate, uses can be relatively banal or very dangerous depending on the specific action being taken. Regardless, compressed air should be used only … Continue reading Incorrect Uses of Compressed Air
Air compressor systems are complex and complex systems are always subject to problems over time. Knowing what the most common problems are, however, can help with both isolating potential issues before they grow and investigating inconsistencies in performance. Here are some of the more common problems you might encounter with a compressed air system. Critical … Continue reading Common Problems in Air Compressor Systems
Outside of the compressors there are many components of a compressed air system that need to be properly maintained in order to keep up optimum efficiency. The actual piping itself shouldn’t require much in the way of regular work since it is built to be permanent but it is important to inspect it somewhat regularly … Continue reading Maintenance of Non-Compressor Components
