Industrial Air Compressors

Air compressors force atmospheric air under pressure to create potential energy that can be stored in a tank for later use. Like an open balloon, the pressure builds up when the compressed air is deliberately released, converting the potential energy into usable kinetic energy.

Air Compressors for Industrial Applications

Air compressors are the heart of your compressed air system. They are responsible for starting the process, keeping it running, and powering the system. Variables need to line up from the compressor to the point of use. Finding the right compressor is an intensive process; there is no one-size-fits-all answer, and I wish there was. You have to make sure your air has the proper flow, the pressure isn’t too far off in either direction, you have the power to run the machine, and many other things that are integral to making high-quality compressed air.

Selecting the right air compressor can result in endless headaches or consistent compressed air with minimal problems. Multiple variables, from CFM, PSI, and volume to material used in piping, can change how your system functions. Identifying these variables is an investment of your time. Investing your time before the compressor is in place will allow you to focus on using the compressor rather than fixing it.

 

Selecting the Right Air Compressor 

Adequately sizing your air compressor is important, but some things need to be addressed first. Aligning these variables is a necessity, not an option if you want it to work. The most crucial ones to pay attention to are:

  • CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute)
  • Pressure (PSI/PSIG)
  • Space

Identifying the flow rate, pressure, space, and air needs will lead you in the right direction to figure out what kind of machine you need. The horsepower of the air end typically determines CFM, so if you know your CFM, you will have an idea of what horsepower you need to run and vice versa. Knowing these factors will greatly limit your options to ensure you get the best compressor for your application. After you know these things, you can focus a little more on the details of your compressor:

  • Type of Compressor
  • Technology
  • Power
  • Utilization
  • Storage
  • Noise
  • Industry Air Standards

They may be less critical than CFM and PSI, but the type of compressor you choose, power level/availability, and even noise can throw off the flow. Different applications require different equipment. Compressor pumps have strengths and weaknesses, environments and situations where they excel, and applications where they fail. 

Piston compressors are an industry staple for many operations; they are cheaper, consistent, and have been around for a long time; however, their run time is restricted by the need to rest. Piston compressors need to rest for as long as they run; if you run these machines too much, the components will overheat, ruining the machine. Meanwhile, rotary screw compressors waste your money if you do not run them enough.

Different Types of Air Compressors

Most workshops that rely on compressed air will use a piston compressor. They are reliable and consistent: if you treat them right, a piston compressor can last you over 20 years. But an overworked piston compressor might not make it through a single shift. One slight difference, the pump style, can determine what scenarios the compressor succeeds in. Rather than worrying about trying to make the wrong compressor work, focus on what type of compressor will work the best in your environment.  

 

Reciprocating Piston Compressor

The most common air compressor, piston air compressors, are an industry staple with a reliable track record. They are the go-to machine for most compressed air users. When given adequate care and attention, these compressors can last 15 to 20 years. Not only are they reliable, but they also operate nearly identically to internal combustion engines.  You know, the engines that power most of our cars are the model used for piston compressors, but instead of combustion, the byproduct is highly pressurized air.

Pistons operate with a crankshaft and a compression cylinder. As the crankshaft rotates, the piston moves as well. When the piston moves up, the valve at the top is sealed, creating a vacuum. Once the piston has reached the apex of its rotation, it begins moving back down as the compressed air exits the previously closed-off valve. Once the compressed air has exited the chamber, the chamber refills with air, and the process is repeated.

 

Rotary Screw Compressor 

A compliment to the run time restrictions of piston compressors, rotary screw compressors were built to run. With an ideal duty cycle of 80-100%, these compressors work better with no breaks. Screw compressors are capable of continuously compressing air due to the nature of rotary screw pumps. There are two intermeshing screws, consisting of one male and one female, that rotate to create compressed air. Air enters the space between the two helically opposed screws, and as they spin, the volume of space decreases, compressing the air as a result. 

By constantly spinning the rotors, the air is always being compressed, unlike other compressors, which have a period of refilling the compression chamber. There is no downtime between compression periods, meaning production never has to stop with a rotary screw compressor. All these benefits do come with a downside: these compressors will cost you more upfront, but the energy savings will pay for themselves.

Scroll Compressor 

The silent sibling of compressors, scrolls are the face of oil-free compressed air. It operates similarly to the rotary screw, except rather than rotors, it is a set of scrolls. One scroll is stagnant as the other rotates in a circular motion to compress the air as it moves along, and the pocket of space shrinks, forcing the air into a continuously smaller space until it is released at the desired pressure.

As the moving scroll rotates around, it comes nearly into contact with the stagnant scroll but never quite touches it. This makes the rotary scroll the quietest and the cleanest of the bunch. These compressors are often used in places like dentists’ and doctors’ offices to power their tools with air clean enough to be used in a person’s mouth.

 

Additional Air Compressor Considerations

After settling on a pump, there are a few more things to consider when selecting a suitable compressor: technology, power, utilization, storage, industry standards, and noise.

When deciding on additional variables for your compressed air system, it is crucial to weigh the investment and lifetime costs of the equipment. Some technologies, like Variable Speed Drive compressors, will increase the initial cost of your compressor, but the energy savings from a variable speed can quickly make up for that difference. 

Alongside technology differences, the power provided in your facility can affect the type of compressor you need. Power comes in different phases and voltage levels; breakers are rated for certain amps. Sometimes, you might not even rely on electricity to power your equipment. If you are unsure of your facility’s phase and voltage, double-check before getting a new compressor. 

As we touched on earlier, utilization can determine what type of equipment you need. How often you run the compressor, how long you run it, and where you run it can all determine what type of equipment works best. When it comes to utilization and compressors, a simple rule to follow is:

  • Less than 4 Hours a Day: Reciprocating Compressor
  • Between 4 and 8 Hours a Day: Belt Driven Rotary Screw
  • 8 hours and more a Day: Direct Drive Rotary Screw

Just remember to check your details before you invest in an air compressor. You can spend a lot of time and money waiting for a compressor that doesn’t match your system. You can spend a lot of extra cash on technology, storage, and noise reduction, but if the compressor doesn’t align, you are paying for an oversized paperweight.
