The storage tank of a two-stage compression screw air compressor is an essential component that helps to ensure a stable and consistent supply of compressed air. Here are some tips for arranging the storage tank of a two-stage compression screw air compressor:
1. Determine the required tank size: The size of the storage tank required depends on the compressor’s output and the air demand of the application. It’s important to ensure that the tank size is sufficient to meet the air demand while also allowing for some buffer capacity.
2. Install the tank near the compressor: The storage tank should be installed as close to the compressor as possible to minimize pressure drop and ensure that the compressed air reaches the point of use quickly.
3. Use the correct piping: The piping used to connect the compressor and storage tank should be appropriately sized to minimize pressure drop and ensure efficient transfer of compressed air.
4. Install a drain valve: A drain valve should be installed at the bottom of the storage tank to allow for regular draining of condensate and prevent corrosion and damage to the tank.
5. Consider the environment: The storage tank should be placed in an area that is protected from the elements and free from obstructions that could impede airflow. It should also be positioned in an area that is easily accessible for maintenance and inspection.
6. Consider safety: The storage tank should be installed on a stable and level surface and secured with appropriate brackets or supports to prevent movement. It’s also important to ensure that the tank is equipped with pressure relief valves and other safety devices as required by regulations and standards.
By following these tips, you can arrange the storage tank of a two-stage compression screw air compressor in a way that ensures efficient and safe operation, and meets the air demand of your application.
