If you are using a reciprocating compressor, it stabilizes the air flow by damping vibrations from the discharge line of your compressor. In this way, it provides proper air to the equipment you use. You and your system won’t be damaged due to unwanted pressure spikes.
Since we can store the desired amount of air in the air tank, excessive cycling of the compressor is prevented. In this way, we reduce electricity consumption.
Another effect of damping sudden pressure changes is that by minimizing the corrosion rate of the devices you use, we maximize their lifetime.
Another reason for using air tanks is to meet the instantaneous air demand of the user. If the sizing is correct, air demands can be met more easily. In addition, since the volume of the compressor to be purchased can be reduced in this way, savings are also achieved on this side.
The heat exchanger function of the air tank helps to increase the efficiency of your air dryer. Air passes slowly through the receiving tank and it cools down. Cold air cannot hold as much moisture as warm air, so excess moisture condenses and falls out of the air like liquid. Water flows out of a valve at the bottom of the tank. By removing some moisture, the deaerator tank reduces the amount of work the air dryer has to do. This improved efficiency means additional energy savings for your system.
