The secret life of air compressors

It doesn’t matter if you’re working in a mine site in the Pilbara, a building or construction site in the metropolitan area or fixing roads anywhere across the State, when you need to get the job done, fast and efficiently, you need access to a reliable power supply that works as hard as you do. Industrial Air Compressors are probably the most versatile piece of equipment you can get your hands on, they’re used in a wide range of industries, for thousands of different applications.

Keeping industry working

Industrial air compressors are working hard behind the scenes in the Automotive, Manufacturing, Electronics, Food and Beverage, Hospitals and Medical, Mining, Pharmaceuticals, Plastics, Power Generation, Wood Product industries – the list is endless.  Whether it’s drilling for oil and gas samples in remote Australia, tightening up the wheel nuts on a truck or car or dehydrating fruit for healthy snacks, the one thing all of these industries have in common is they all use compressed air to get the task done.

Life or death situations

If you were asked to name a workplace that require a sterile environment, you would probably think of hospitals, clinics or the medical sectors in general.  Hospitals require integrated, stable sources of compressed air for medical breathing and surgical air applications.  Air quality is paramount in these situations so It must be certified medical air quality and free from ambient air or environmental pollution and is generated by a specialist industrial strength air compression unit.

Keeping it clean

Interestingly, the electronic industry and many manufacturing processes also require an environment where the potential for contamination is eliminated.  Governed by strict industry standards, the electronics manufacturing industry must have a sterile environment in which to produce their products.  To comply compressed air must be free of oil contamination in liquid, aerosol or vapor forms.

Food for thought

The food production industry relies heavily on clean compressed air to produce everyday items that we take for granted.  This industry also sets very high standards to reduce possible contamination of the product.  Compressors assist with the dehydration process, bottling, actuators and controls, spraying coatings, conveying, cleaning and vacuum packing.

Quality textiles

The weavers and spinners in the textile industry bring together the elements of raw materials, design and innovative technology to create beautiful fabrics, in a range of sophisticated colours and patterns.  Creating top quality textiles requires oil-free compressed air power to drive the looms, agitate liquids during the dying process and spin yarns as sine as silk and soft as mohair or strong enough to make carpets.

Adaptable air

Whether you’re spray paint a ceiling, powder-coating a fencing panel or sandblasting an enormous piece of industrial machinery, chances are you will be using an industrial strength air compressor. The majority of air compressors are either reciprocating piston or rotary screw designs.  Units range from a small tank which deliver enough pressure to pump up your bike or car tyres to specialised power units capable of supplying enough pressurised air to run a heavy manufacturing plant and everything in between.

Safety Tips for Using an Industrial Air Compressor

Commercial or industrial air compressors come in a range of size and capacities, ranging from small 6 litre portables to larger truck mounted diesels or stationary models that run on 3 phase electricity.  Whatever the type of air compressor you need to get the job done. Here are some straightforward safety tips we recommend to keep your or your personnel safe.
  • First and foremost, make sure that the personnel using the equipment are adequately trained. They should read and understand the operator’s manual and be familiar with the equipment. They should also be to self-diagnose problems with the equipment, and be trained in what to do in an emergency.
  • Second, and it should go without saying, that when operating an air compressor, it’s essential to use safety equipment, including full length workwear, safety boots, eye protection, hearing protection, gloves and masks. Personal safety is everyone’s responsibility.
  • Thirdly, safety is a priority. Never, ever point the jet nozzle at people or animals or yourself, it’s extremely hazardous and you risk sustaining or causing serious injury. Safety breaches should be taken very seriously. They must always be reported, investigated properly with appropriate action taken.

Before work starts complete a safety check

For many professionals, an air compressor is an invaluable tool of the trade. Even though they are build tough, air compressors can be susceptible to changes in moisture, temperature, and position which makes daily checks one of the necessities of life.

Power supply safety

If the air compressor is powered by electricity, ensure that it’s plugged into a properly earthed (or grounded) outlet, with a residual current device (RCD) to protect against damage or electrocution.  Improper installation can damage the electrical panel of the compressor and potentially cause a fire. When there is no reliable source of electricity available, a diesel air compressor is the go to solution.  To prolong the life of the engine, remember to keep the fuel tank clean to ensure there’s no residual build up.

How Does an Air Compressor Work?

Tradespeople all over the world love their air powered tools because they’re efficient, lightweight and quieter to operate. These benefits come from operating from a central power source which means that each tool doesn’t need its own bulky motor or power source. Let’s have a look at compressed air and how it works.

The technology

Air compression as a power source dates back many thousands of years. It started with the humble bellows used to fan the flames of a furnace, then in 1762, British engineer John Smeaton designed a blowing cylinder driven by a water wheel which slowly replaced the bellows. Over time, mechanical air compressors improved and became more sophisticated and were commonly used in many types of industrial and commercial businesses as a central power source. The technology behind air compression is actually quite simple. Compressors, as the name suggests, operate on a simple principle. When air is compressed, the volume decreases and the pressure increases. Compressed air is a form of stored power, captured in a tank which is connected to a variety of tools by an air-line. For safety, the pressure within the tank is regulated by valves. Outputs are measured in two main ways, PSI (pounds per square inch) and deliverable CFM (cubic feet per minute). These measurements determine how efficiently the air compressor will operate in different situations. The most common type of air compressors used today is powered by 3 phase electricity or diesel.

Horses for courses

If you’re operating a workshop, factory or assembly line on the grid, it’s probable that your compressor or powerplant will be powered by electricity. In commercial terms, it’s relatively cheap and extremely reliable. Having a central power source means that hand tools are lighter and much quieter to operate as the drive shafts and belts are replaced by small bore airlines which bring the power directly to where it’s needed. When there is no reliable source of electricity available, a diesel air compressor is a popular go-to solution. Durable and reliable, with a reputation for being as tough as the environments they operate in, a diesel air compressor is highly prized power source with a range of models suitable for every application. On construction sites or mine sites in regional or remote Australia, diesel air compressors support technicians to get the job done.

The Air Compressor – possibly the most useful piece of equipment you can get your hands on

From inflating tyres to tightening the wheel nuts, cutting, grinding, polishing, painting or sanding, every auto workshop worth its salt has an air compressor as part of its standard equipment. But there are many other uses for an air compressor. In the construction industry they power nail guns and sanders. In manufacturing, drills, impact wrenches and staplers often run on air. Air compressors run the spray guns used by panel and paint shops, and these days painter and decorators often use spray guns powered by compressed air to paint the interiors of new homes.

Why choose air?

The big advantage of air power is efficiency. Each tool doesn’t need its own bulky motor or power source. Having a central power source means that tools are lighter and much quieter to operate. Air compressors come in all shapes and sizes, from something small enough to fit in your glove box and run off a car battery to a fixed system run off three phase or to a fully transportable truck mounted diesel air compressor. Each type has its own pros and cons but in the construction, mining or industrial sectors, a transportable diesel air compressor is predominantly the tool of choice.

How they work

The technology behind air compression is relatively straight forward. Compressors, as the name suggests, operate on a simple principle. When air gets compressed, the volume goes down and the pressure goes up. Compressed air is a form of power. It’s stored in a tank which is connected to a variety of tools by an air-line. For safety, the pressure within the tank is regulated by valves. Air compressor outputs are measured in two main ways, PSI (pounds per square inch) and deliverable CFM (cubic feet per minute). These measurements determine how efficiently the air compressor will operate in different situations.

Diesel Air Compressors

When there is no reliable source of electricity available, a diesel air compressor is the go-to solution. With a reputation for being as tough as the environments they operate in, a diesel air compressor is durable, reliable and there’s a model suitable for every application. On construction sites or mine sites in regional or remote Australia, a diesel air compressor supports trade and technical operators to get the job done. With capacities that vary from 100 to 1600 cfm and a pressure range of 100 – 500 psi and a host of configurations and options, our diesel air compressors are designed for continuous use.
