Air Compressors Supplier
Arbe Machine has a great selection of quality silent air compressors for purchase. But before purchasing one, it is helpful to learn about the machine first. In short, air compressors are devices that convert power into potential energy stored in pressurized air. They do so by using an electric motor, diesel or gasoline engine.
Oftentimes air compressors are confused with an air pump, but they are different. An air pump only pumps air from one context to another, whereas the air compressor stores the compressed air into a tank to be used when ready. For example, an air pump is used to inflate a mattress and does so immediately, but slower than an air compressor. There is no storage tank with pumps, but the compressors store the energy, thus creating a quicker, more powerful process. Though with the speed also comes more noise.
Air Compressor Applications
Air compressors have many uses across different industries. They can supply clean, high-pressure air to fill gas cylinders. They supply clean, moderate pressure clean air to a submerged surface. They can supply air for HVAC control systems, which are used for school and office buildings. Tools such as jackhammers and air tanks also receive air from compressors.
Electric and gas/diesel powered compressors are the most common types of air compressors on the market. There are two types of ways the power of a compressor is measured:
- Horsepower (HP)
- Cubic feet per minute of intake air (CFM)
As for how they are used, well, the gas/diesel powered compressors are used primarily in remote areas where electricity may hard to come by. These electric compressors are noisy and require ventilation for exhaust gases.
As for electrical powered compressors and their uses, they are widely used in places that have access to electricity. Production, workshops, garages, any place that has easy access to electricity is a go. These compressors can be portable or stationary depending on the size of the machine.
Air Compressor Maintenance
To ensure air compressors run at their most efficient levels, they need to be properly maintained. Routine check-ups and inspections is needed to keep your air compressor running smoothly. Here are a few aspects that should be inspected on a regular basis:
- Oil and air leaks
- Differential pressure in the compressed air filter
- Determining whether or not the oil needs to be changed
- Verify a safe operating temperature to avoid overheating the unit
- Drain the condensed moisture from the tank
