What is the requirements to install a compressor?

In order to avoid maintenance difficulties, poor compressed air quality, loud noise, bad ventilation condition and so on. It is important to pay attention to the following requirements before installing.

What is the Reserve maintenance space of compressor room?

The distance between the compressor and the wall must be at least one meter;
The distance between the air compressor and the top space is at least one meter;
The main channel distance of the compressor room is at least 1.5 meters.

What temperature does the compressor room needs?

The ambient temperature should be 2~40℃.
The higher the ambient temperature, the less the output air volume of the compressor
If below 2℃, the air compressor must adopt measures to avoid freezing.

What is the requirements for the intake air ?

The humidity of the air should be low, with little dust, clean air.
If the factory environment is poor and dusty, you must install pre-filter equipment.

What is the requirements for compressor room’s ventilation?

For the Air-cooled type air compressor system, we recommended to install air ducts to direct the cooling hot air out:
For the Water-cooled type air compressor system, need water cooling system.
The cooling water pressure should be 2~6bar.
Valves should be installed at the inlet and outlet.
If the cooling water should be clean, if there are impurities, filters should be installed.

What is the foundation requirements?

The vibration generated by the screw compressor is small, so there is no need to make a fixed foundation. But the ground must be flat and hard. The bottom of the compressor should be covered with 5-10mm soft pads or anti-vibration pads to prevent vibration and noise.

The notices for pipeline system?

– The main pipeline must have an inclination of 1 ° ~ 2 ° for the drainage of condensate in the pipeline.

– The pressure drop of the pipeline must not exceed 5% of the pressure of the air compressor, so it is better to use a larger pipe diameter when piping.

– The branch pipeline must be connected from the top of the main pipeline, to prevent the condensed water flowing into the working machine. The air outlet pipeline of the compressor should add a check valve.

– When installing compressors in series, we should add a ball valve (or an automatic drain valve) at the end of the main pipe for condensation discharge.

– If there are air tank and dryer behind the compressor, the ideal piping should be compressor + air tank + front filter + dryer + other filters. In this way, the air tank can filter out part of the condensed water, and it also has the function of reducing the temperature of the compressed air. The lower temperature and less water content can reduce the load on the dryer or filter.

– If the system uses a large amount of air in a short time, we should install an air tank as a buffer, it can reduce frequent loading and unloading times, can reduce the number of control element actions, can maintain the reliability of the compressor’s operation. Generally, we can select an air tank with a capacity of 20%.

– Minimize the use of elbows and various valves in the pipeline to reduce pressure loss.

– The ideal piping system is that the mainline surrounds the entire plant so that two-sided compressed air can be used at any position. For example, when the air consumption of a branch line increases, the pressure drop can be reduced. Arrange appropriate valves on the ring-shaped trunk line for maintenance and cutting purposes.
