Common Types of Air Compressors

Buying a new air compressor? Do you really understand the compressed air requirements of your plant? Do you know how much air your equipment consumes and at what pressure? Are you aware that the single biggest cost associated with owning and operating an air compressor system will be the electricity costs required to run it? 1. Reciprocating Air […]

Variable Speed Air Compressors Sydney – Sales, Installation & Service

How do variable speed air compressors work? A variable-speed drive (VSD) air compressor is an air compressor that takes advantage of variable-speed drive technology. This type of compressor uses a special drive to control the speed (RPM) of the unit, which in turn saves energy compared to a fixed speed equivalent. The most common form of VSD technology in […]

Centrifugal Air Compressors Sydney – Sales, Installation & Service

Sydney air compressor sales, repairs, installation & service How do centrifugal air compressors work? The centrifugal air compressor is a dynamic compressor which depends on transfer of energy from a rotating impeller to the air. Centrifugal compressors produce high-pressure discharge by converting angular momentum imparted by the rotating impeller (dynamic displacement). In order to do this efficiently, centrifugal compressors […]

Reciprocating Air Compressors Sydney – Sales, Installation & Service

Sydney air compressor sales, repairs, installation & service How do reciprocating air compressors work? Reciprocating air compressors are positive displacement machines, meaning that they increase the pressure of the air by reducing its volume. This means they are taking in successive volumes of air which is confined within a closed space and elevating this air to a […]

Control storage and compressed air system evaluation

Control (Wet) Storage – a Misunderstood Concept When evaluating a compressed air system and the proper application of storage, one of the most misunderstood concepts is control storage. It is often referred to as wet, primary, or in some cases demand storage. However, the term control storage is more reflective of its main function – […]
