What is an Industrial Air Compressor and What is it Made Of?
March 07, 2016

Nowadays, many professionals do not understand the machines they use. It is true that machines today are becoming more complex and elaborate than before; they allow for difficult tasks to be done more quickly and efficiently without having to spend a lot of energy and money. But at the same time, it has also become more difficult to repair and maintain them as they have become much more complicated as a result.

In this article, we will explain what the different parts of your industrial air compressor are, as well as their respective functions. This will help you to buy, sell and maintain your compressor in the best way possible.

The Different Parts

1. For most people an industrial air compressor simply means a machine that compresses air. While this is true, what most people don’t know is that it is also an energy converter that converts power from an external source. It can use a diesel engine or an electric motor and convert its power into stored energy, which is then released in the form of super pressurized air. This pressurized air, in turn, is used to power machinery and tools.


2. Industrial air compressors have several applications in the industry and are used in many different fields, which include assembly and automation, chemical manufacturing, construction and agriculture, to name a few.

3. The engine of the machine is what makes up the bulk of the compressor. It is the main source of energy, which enables the machine to compress air. The reservoir or the storage tank is where the compressed air is stored until it is utilized. You can get the tanks in many different sizes depending upon the compressor model you buy.


4. Air evacuation in industrial air compressors is done through a drain so that excess water does not remain in the tank. They have two different filters - an input filter that cleans the entering air and an output filter that removes any contaminated particles by venting it out with the compressed air. This helps in outputting better quality air.


5. The gauge control allows you to see the air compression level and its switch allows you to set the desired air compression level.


To Conclude

Knowing all parts of an industrial air compressor can provide you with insight into how these units operate, and can help you in choosing the right unit to purchase for your specific requirements. It doesn’t end here however, as it also helps you in maintaining a better compressor and keep it running for you for years to come.  In order to make the right choice and make the most out of the machine you buy, it is imperative that you dedicate time to understanding its parts and its operation. Learn about reasons why you should invest in an industrial air compressor if you are a DIYer at home.
