Uses

  • Storage function in order to handle high air consumption
  • Stabilizes pressure peaks and provide a stable air flow
  • Performs a preliminary separation and removal of condensate

Protection

  • Protection from unstable pressure peaks
  • Protection from multiple start/stop of the compressor
  • Protection from more condensate risk

Benefits

  • Pressure stabilization – beneficial for the pneumatic tools using the compressed air
  • Storage – for handling high air consumption
  • Pulsation reduction, velocity reduction and temperature reduction
  • Improvement of life, reliability and functionality of your compressor
  • Condensate separation

Sizing your compressed air receiver

There is no one rule that fits all as some applications require larger air tanks because of the process. However, these rules of thumb can help in finetuning the performance according to your need:

Metric system:

Volume of the tank in liters in relation to compressor air flow [l/min]:

  • Piston compressors: volume of the tank in m3= airflow [m3/min]. Based on the design, an intermittent run is assumed here.
  • Screw compressors: Volume of the air receiver in m3 = 3x air flow [m3/min]

Imperial:

  • Compressor cfm x1 = air receiver volume in gallons
  • Compressor horsepower x 4 = air receiver volume in gallons
