    Why Are Air Compressors Lubricated?

    Reduce energy costs Having the air compressor well-lubricated reduces friction, which may result in wear and excess heat. Typically, the compressor’s parts like rotors, bearings, gears, cylinders, and sliding vanes cause more heat as they move. At the same time, it needs a lot of energy to cool the unit and allow for safer functioning. With proper lubrication, power usage and energy costs get reduced drastically. More importantly, it ensures that everything keeps on working efficiently without wearing out. As…

    Common Symptoms Of A Bad Fuel Filter

    A bad fuel filter or one that is clogged up eventually leads to several car problems. As a car owner, you need to continually check your fuel and clean it or replace it with a new and quality fuel filter from PMJ International. Let’s take a look at the common symptoms of a bad fuel filter. Reduced engine power One of the most common signs of a bad or clogged up fuel filter is the lack of engine power. The lack of engine power in all gears could be due to the lack of fuel reaching the injector. In this case, the fuel filter is clogged up with rust or dirt, thus allowing little or no fuel to get through.

    How To Prevent Pressure Drops In Air Compressors

    This might sound counter-intuitive, but if your air compressor output pressure is too high, it could be putting strain on the joints and connectors in your distribution airline, leading to avoidable leaks. If you can reduce the compressor output pressure while still achieving the same pressure at the point of use, you can make immediate energy and cost savings while you tackle some more long-term fixes. 2. Check dryers and in-line filters Change your compressor filters coalescing filter element and…

    How To Adjust And Reset Our Air Compressor Pressure Switch MDR1 & MDR 3

    Setting the Air Compressor Switch It is always a wise idea to set the cut-in as well as the cut-out pressure. Cut in pressure – this is the basic pressure level within which the compressor starts Cut-out pressure – this is the basic pressure level which the compressor stops at when it has been surpassed. This pressure level is always higher than the cut-in pressure. The best pressure level for any compressor, whether large or small, is always low. However, the applications…

    What is a Compressor Manifold?

    The Primary Function of a Compressor Manifold By their very nature, compressors have been designed to manipulate pressurised air. A manifold can essentially be viewed as a “switch” that is designed to regulate the amount of air pressure between the internal tank and the discharge coupling. Although the designs of these manifolds are quite different between manufacturers, these devices allow users to connect a series of hoses to a point so that pressurised air can be accessed when needed. In…

    What Are The Parts of An Air Compressor

    The Pump The pump is the primary mechanical portion of the compressor, as it will compress the air and send it to another component known as the receiver (more on this later). Pumps can sometimes be adjusted in order to accommodate for different pressures; providing manual adjustment capabilities when needed. The Condensate Drain Condensate drains are another important component, as they allow the user to remove any moisture that may have accumulated within the system without causing any air to…

    Reciprocating vs Rotary Compressors

    Reciprocating Versus Rotary Compressors Reciprocating compressors function similarly to an automobile engine due to the presence of a piston that moves back and forth during operation. Many of these piston-type compressors can work in synergy to provide excellent cooling benefits.

    How to Remove a Pulley from an Air Compressor Motor

    Pulleys are essential components of any air compressor, as they are attached to the motor and play a critical role in sending pressurised air to the nearby tank. These mechanical devices can nonetheless be damaged over time due to common issues such as wear and tear. This is when a replacement may be required. Changing out an existing pulley is a rather straightforward process if we learn to appreciate the main steps involved. Let’s break down this task into a…

    What Size Air Compressor Do I Need for Specific Air Tools?

    Air compressors are often used in conjunction with handheld tools in order to tackle projects that would be difficult to accomplish through manual labour alone. Examples can include impact wrenches within a garage and the air required to power a pneumatic pump. It should still be mentioned that different tools will require slightly different air compressor configurations. What factors will need to be taken into account in order to ensure that you have chosen the correct model for your requirements? PSI AND CFM: WHAT IS THE IMPORTANCE? The power output of an air compressor (such as a hydrovane compressor or a standard reciprocating compressor) is measured in two ways: PSI (pounds per square inch) CFM (cubic feet per minute). Why…
