1. Main Features of Diesel Portable Air Compressor
The Industrial Portable Air Compressor is also known as a mobile compressor or tow-behind compressor.
This kind of industrial air compressor is usually driven by a diesel engine. So this industrial portable air compressor is also referred to as a diesel-driven compressor or simply a diesel compressor. This diesel engine is either directly coupled to the compressor element or is connected with pulleys and a belt: like the engine in the car, the diesel engine uses a starter motor to start up; thus, the battery is also necessary for the industrial portable air compressor.
The common type of the industrial portable air compressor is the screw type: our Two-Stage Diesel Screw Type Portable Air Compressor is the most popular type. Driven by the diesel engine, the Two-Stage Air Compressor contains two sets of synchronized rotors, which are housed in a common stator housing or two separate stator housings bolted together in tandem. In the Two-Stage Diesel Screw Type Portable Air Compressor, the air goes through twice the air compression.
2. What is the typical portable air compressor use?
Generally speaking, the industrial portable air compressor is an on-site air compressor, which means that it supplies compressed air where a stationary compressor is not suitable, such as construction sites, road works, etc.
Besides, the industrial air compressor can also be used as a backup for stationary compressor: for example, when the stationary air compressor needs maintenance or stops working, the industrial portable air compressor allows the work to continue as normal.
More specifically, the main applications of the industrial portable air compressor are the followings:
Construction: the industrial air compressor can power a great variety of tools at construction sites such as nailing and riveting guns, drills and wrenches, etc.
Moreover, the industrial air compressor isn’t suitable for urban constructions but is also a powerful tool for mining, drilling, sandblasting, etc. In summary, this Diesel Portable Air Compressor for Mining/Drilling/Sandblasting/Urban Construction is a convenient source of compressed air for on-site applications.
Oil and Gas Industry: the oil and gas industry uses industrial portable air compressors for powering equipment at remote onshore and offshore drilling sites, installing and removing reactor rods and remotely controlling valves in coolant and steam circuits.
Pharmaceutical Industry: the industrial portable air compressor is essential for the pharmaceutical industry; during the production process, the air compressor is necessary for the product packaging and conveyor system operation.
Manufacturing Plant: as we mentioned before, the industrial portable air compressor can also be used as a backup; in case of emergencies, the portable air compressor can serve as backup units for they don’t require electricity to operate.
3. What are the benefits of a portable air compressor?
Nowadays there’re more and more manufacturers of standard & custom diesel & portable compressors and more and more industrial manufacturers choose the industrial portable air compressor. Why it’s so popular and what are the benefits?
Flexibility: the biggest advantage of the industrial portable air compressor is the flexibility; each industrial portable air compressor is equipped with hosting rings for safe and convenient hoisting and transportation; this tow behind air compressor is convenient to move under harsh terrain conditions.
Versatility: as we mentioned before, the industrial air compressor can be used as an on-site energy source and backup for emergencies.
Reliability: with a diesel engine, the industrial air compressor is effective in all conditions and can work for long hours.
Easy maintenance: the industrial portable air compressor usually features a simple structure without two many spare parts; for example, the Two-Stage Diesel Screw Type Portable Air Compressor is characterized by two simple sets of synchronized rotors that compress the air twice, which is not a complicated structure and requires less maintenance work.
