Air Compressor

What air compressor need?

The use of one or other type of compressor will depend on the needs of the facility in terms of flow and pressure of the compressed air, being also important to know the scope of each type of compressor, to choose the most appropriate.

Continuous use: compresor CATS-500 Screw compressor

The needs of flow and compressed air pressure lead to choose the Power suitable compressor, as each compressor is able to guarantee a flow and a certain pressure with a different power.

To calculate the airflow is needed to add the flow of each pneumatic tool individually , resulting in the maximum needs of air flow, and applying coefficients to adapt the theoretical maximum consumption to reality each workshop, as not all computers operate simultaneously.

Example:

Air compressor in a car repair shop.

To make the calculation flow of compressed air is necessary to establish a means for each of the pneumatic tools flow (eg 300 l / min.) And how many people will use the tools at the same time .

For the full flow, simply multiply the average consumption , ie 300 liters / minute, the number of shop workers (imagine that all are working at the same time). Finally, the total obtained, we must apply a coefficient of simultaneity (1 being, being connected all at once, so always take a value less than 1).

Total flow rate = 900 l/min

Once you have a rough estimate air consumption and pressure, we can determine the power of the compressor. The following table may provide guidance on the power of the air compressor; however, before deciding on one or another, please contact us and we will advise.

Do you know what are the advantages of this type of compressor?

Best running

A screw compressor uses rotating elements smaller and better capacity, thus preventing vibration and friction cause the pistons and thus achieving greater mechanical efficiency.

Higher air output by HP

Thanks to their greater efficiency, the screw compressor produces more air by HP. Generally, a piston compressor produces 3 to 3.5 cubic feet minute / HP. A screw compressor produces cubic feet 4 to 5 minutes / HP., Exceeding the compressor piston 30%.

Major work period under load.

Because of increased heat in the compressor piston, the working period under load is 50% -60%, with a maximum of 80%. Screw compressors are designed to operate with a period of low work load of 100%, ie continuously.

Durability

This is thanks to their greater efficiency, functioning more chilled and better balance. The screw compressor has a longer life, generally twice the compressor piston.

Do you know what are the advantages of this type of compressor?

Long duration

The materials used in the manufacture of piston compressors must be of high quality and high resistance to friction and wear.

Variable compression capacity

Depending on the number of cylinders, the compressibility can increase or decrease, depending on the process needs.

Adaptable

Piston compressors can be adapted to the type of use and industrial process for which required.
