What Types of Machinery Use Compressed Air?
Using compressed air in industrial applications is now thought to be the fourth utility (next to gas, water, and electricity), as its use is now widespread. A machine that produces compressed air is powered electrically and has air stored in a pressure much higher than that of the surrounding atmosphere. The compressed air is usually released when needed to power different kinds of machinery and tools.
Construction power tools like presses and pneumatic drills use compressed air. Also, the brakes in larger vehicles and railway rolling stock make use of it too. Types of machinery that use compressed air include:
- High-pressure air jets used for cleaning heavy equipment
- Lifting equipment
- Presses for forming materials
- All kinds of tools for moving volume and weight, and for drilling
Compressed air is used in almost all industries. The applications are very widespread, including construction, transport and shipping, food processing, and manufacturing. But that is not all; the medical world also uses compressed air systems. For example, many dental equipment types require compressed air systems to power and run them. In addition to that, domestic and everyday uses of compressed can also be found in the following:
- Sprinkler systems
- Pressure jet washing equipment
- Underwater breathing equipment and apparatus
- Construction work, with the operation of tools and plants like lifting vehicles and diggers
- Heavy doors and brakes on public transport vehicles and systems like buses, railways, and heavy-duty road vehicles.
Do We Offer Compressed Air Servicing?
Yes we do. Like any other equipment used every day, you need to ensure that your air compressed system is maintained to the highest standards to prevent problems from arising. Air compressors do not need a lot of daily maintenance however, regular servicing is required. It is still essential to have daily routine checks and observations together with inspection and air compressor servicing undertaken at regular intervals to prevent the following problems.
Loss of pressure is one of the most common issues associated with air compressors. This affects how efficiently the equipment powered will work, and can completely stall your operation if not monitored correctly.
Loss of pressure can result from blocked or degraded filters or even a mechanical failure.
Inadequate condensation management is also a common cause of damage and failure of an air compressor. Air compressor systems depend on oil lubrication and eject any contaminated oil through its filters, dryers, and drains. As a result, generating vapor and spray is a natural and inevitable result of creating compressed air, and is unavoidable. Other contaminating particles created may end up damaging the systems and causing interruptions to work and production.
Specific legislations govern both the removal and disposal of condensate. And this means each process happens in a way that meets every legislation, including local requirements. The ultimate goal is to ensure the removal of condensate and oil products from the air pressure system, with the resulting waste being disposed of in an eco-friendly manner and this is done through regular air compressor services.
