About air compressor
What is the purpose of an intercooler in an Air Compressor
Intercoolers lower the temperature of air going from one stage of a compressor to another, it increases the efficiency as the air becomes more dense. As the recieving stage is compressing cooler air as result, there is less heat produced in the succeding stage. If the intercooler has a large surface area, the temperature can approach ambient temperatures, and moisture my drop out, requiring a method for it's removal; if not a slug of water could damage the recieving stage. Efficiency increases can be had >15% .
Why use an Air compressor regulator?
use air regulator to stop motor so it don't over fill tank, tank could explode if over fill pass it's rating.
What parts does a AIR COMPRESSOR consist of?
In general an air compressor is made up of three parts. They are the air pump, the motor and the tank that holds the compressed air.
How do you calculate air compressor capacity?
Flow rate times pressure divided by input will yield air compressor capacity. Input is another term for horsepower of the compressor. The pressure can be adjusted depending on how compact the result is to be.
