Regeneration of air compressors
Air compressors are used in a wide range of applications, including cars, buses and agricultural machinery. The use of a compressor is also necessary for pneumatic tools.
Various compressor models are available on the market, including reciprocating compressors or vacuum pumps and compressors from a number of manufacturers, for example Knorr, Wabco.
Let’s start by explaining what an air compressor is. A compressor is a motor component that compresses air. The compressor allows the pressure of the gas to be increased and the kinetic energy to be imparted – the compressor forces the gas to flow.
In the case of compressors, we distinguish:
In compressor design, the cooling system must be distinguished. Cooling systems are very important, as the compressors generate a considerable amount of heat during operation. Depending on the compressor model, different types of cooling systems are used.
A very popular type of compressor is vacuum pumps. In the case of vacuum pumps, the suction pressure is very low – maintained at such a level that the suction capacity is maintained, while the discharge pressure is only marginally higher than the ambient pressure.
