How is the air in the air compressor circulated?
As we all know, the working principle of the compression chamber of the air compressor is based on the extrusion principle. The front profile of the automatic shaft and the driving shaft of the rotor is a spiral shape. Driven by the motor and the transmission mechanism, they rotate in accordance with each other, but do not rub against each other. In this way, due to the reduction of the spiral space from time to time, the air entering the rotor increases from time to time along the airflow direction. The pressure rises accordingly to reach the desired maximum pressure. So, how does the air in the air compressor stop circulating?
- Air intake filter
The intake filter ensures that the air drawn into the compression chamber is cleanly filtered.
- Air intake control valve (frequency conversion unit)
The intake valve acts as a one-way intake rather than a loading and unloading control.
The compressor rotor acts to compress the air.
- Oil and gas barrels
In the oil and gas barrel, the oil and compressed air are separated due to the difference in gravity, which plays the role of initial separation.
- Oil and gas separator
It plays the role of finally separating the remaining oil in the compressed air.
- Z high pressure or no check valve
When the system pressure rises to 4.5bar, the valve opens to speed up the formation of system pressure and ensure smooth start-up. On the other hand, after the air compressor stops, the check valve prevents compressed air from flowing back to the air compressor from the outer air pipe.
Play the role of cooling compressed air. During the cooling process, the moisture contained in the compressed air becomes condensed water and flows out.
- Air supply valve
The air supply valve can be used to isolate the air compressor and the air pipe outside the machine.
