The compressed air storage tank is an integral part of the system. Its purpose is to provide storage space to meet production peaks. According to your request, the air circuit is optimized to become more efficient and operational.
Your compressor can operate without a tank. However,not having one can increase the charge and discharge cycles, which promotes compressor runaway. It depends on the fluctuation of your demands.
The air receivers are a buffer mechanism between the compressor and the fluctuating pressure caused by changing demand.
It is imperative to ensure that the tank is properly sized for the application you wish to make of it.
In order not to make a mistake, it is necessary to know if you have a variable speed compressor or a fixed one.
In the case of a variable speed compressor, it is preferable to use a smaller compressed air receiver.
Conversely, the use of a fixed speed compressor requires larger tank volumes in order to reduce the need for compressor shutdowns and restarts. This reduces wear and tear and improves energy efficiency.
Reservoirs are an important link in the compressed air chain, either as a storage volume or as a buffer for consumption peaks.
