Latest trends and technologies in air compressors

With all aspects of business getting on fast pace in adopting latest technologies and trends, air compressors manufacturers in India are driving their air compressor and air dryer business in fat lane to adopt ultra modern technologies and trends for their air compressors and air dryers.

Change is necessary!

There is no doubt that today, every type of business, every size of business and every area of business is getting changed faster than ever. We have witnessed swift changes in many business areas regardless of size and type, and air compressor business is no exception.

From history to future

Let’s get through a small summary of air compressor revolution and take a look at where air compressors technology is heading.

  • Earlier air compressors weighted very much, they were very heavy in weight, now-a-days, we have ultra modern air compressors which weighs less.
  • Earlier air compressors were not capable of producing or supporting high capacity, but now, with technology being developed, we have air compressors like screw air compressors, oil free dental air compressors etc. which come with increased capacity.
  • This development has also bring us with latest air compressors like Reciprocating Air Compressors which can be single phase or two phase air compressors and are capable of working longer than their predecessors. Also, this reciprocating air compressor comes with dual cylinders which mean better performance and improved productivity.
  • Cost reduction with quality improvement – This is what we can say best feature of today’s latest and ultra modern air compressors like screw compressors, Lubricated and Non Lubricated air compressors
  • One big difference in old piston compressors and latest piston and screw compressor is the need of maintenance. Old technology needed much more maintenance and attention to be given to air compressors, air compressors like screw compressors, drain valves and oil free air compressors etc. needs less maintenance. Of course, we need to take due care of these compressors, but don’t require that much attention now-a-days.
  • Today’s air compressors like Air Receivers and Air Dryers have made life so simplified and easy for human being that we can’t think of it. Earlier technology was not able to produce attractive and economic range of air compressors for residential and non-commercial uses. But now, with improved technology, we have economic and attractive compressors in home and non-commercial applications.

 

Conclusion

The evolution of air compressors technology has given air compressors manufacturers a number of big benefits.

  • Reduced manufacturing cost
  • Reduced technical design process
  • Increased performance
  • Increased profit and productivity
  • Fewer maintenance
  • Increased human safety
  • Wider support for more applications

In the part 1 or the previous post, we introduced you to some of the basic terminologies widely used to describe air compressors, air dryers and its parts by leading air compressors manufacturers in India. In this part 2, we are going to introduced you with some more terminologies and definitions of various parts of air compressors and air dryers being designed and manufactured by leading air compressor manufacturers in India.

Demand – It is flow of air at particular position which is required at a point.

Dew Point – Dew point is the temperature at which the moisture in the air starts to condense if the air is cooled at constant pressure.

Discharge Temperature – It is the temperature at the discharge flange of the compressor.

Filters – Filter is the equipment which helps air compressor separate and removing particulate matter, moisture or entrained lubricant from air.

Full-Load – Air compressor operation at full speed with a fully open inlet and discharge delivering maximum air flow.

Gauge Pressure – Gauge pressure is determined by most instruments and gauges, usually expressed in psig. Barometric pressure must be considered to obtain true or absolute pressure (PSIG).

Inlet Pressure – Inlet pressure is the actual pressure at the inlet flange of the compressor typically measured in PSIG unit.

Leak – It is termed as the total loss of compressed air to ambient conditions.

Load Time – It is total time or the period from when a compressor loads until it unloads.

Pressure – Force per unit area, measured in pounds per square inch (PSI).

Pressure Dew Point – It is temperature at which water starts to condense off the air.

Pressure Range – It is total difference between minimum and maximum pressures for an air compressor.

Receiver – A typical vessel generally used to store gas under pressure. In a large compressed air system there may be primary and secondary receivers.
