Buying the correct diesel air compressor for your application
There are a few things to consider when buying the correct air compressor for the application:
You buy too small and either your efficiency is much lower than what it would have been with the correct unit or you cannot do the work at all.
You buy too big, and your compressor is running too cold which can cause other technical problems.
You buy the wrong duty cycle quality, the machine will not last.
You buy a compressor with too low pressure and you cannot do the work you bought it for.
Refrigerated air dryers from 750 liters/min up to 6500 liter/min ex-stock. Larger ex overseas. Dew point 4°C under pressure. Automatic drain pre and manual drain after filters.
Screw compressors have no valves or other mechanical forces to cause imbalances unlike piston compressors.
Airpower keeps universal spare parts for compressors. Pressure switches, non return valves and safety valves are universal to all compressors. Bottom entry filters/ regulators, electric motors and starters can be used for many makes of compressors.
