Air compressors are versatile machines that perform different tasks when attached to a pneumatic tool. While there are many brands out there, you need one that will be reliable for the long haul. For you to choose the right one for your needs, begin by determining the frequency of use in terms of the requirements of your application. Here is what you should look for when buying your air compressor UK:

Condensate drains are a forgotten component of the compressed air system, however, they play an important role in ensuring a reliable and efficient system. Despite how much you invest in more efficient features, such as VSD, air receivers of the correct size or reduction of system pressure, and neglect installation and management of condensate drains you will face some challenges. There will be increased operational costs and lower system reliability.

Pressure drops in air compressor systems are the loss of air pressure as your compressed air travels and moves from the output of your compressor to the point where the compressed air is used.

Your distribution pipework is likely to have a pressure drop depending on the length of the system and the diameter of the pipe.

But the bigger your pressure drop, the more energy you waste, and that has direct cost implications because you have already paid once to compress that air.

You should always aim for a pressure drop of under 10% even at the furthest points of use on your distribution network.

If you’re losing over 10% of your compressed air, or even in the high single figures and want to be more efficient, there are a few things you can do.

What Is An Air Compressor Pressure Switch?

An air compressor pressure switch is a device that is designed to help measure the pressure that is within the air tank. It is also used to shut off the compressor if the air tank has reached and sometimes surpassed the desired air pressure. Another role of the pressure switch for compressor is to help maintain the ideal pressure levels within the air tank. It helps to prevent issues such as raptures and dangers that are brought about by over-pressurised air tanks and lines. The device uses airlines to keep track of the pressure of the air as it moves to and from the air tank.
