Direct Driven / Direct Coupling
The system used direct coupling air compressor is direct driven, where the driving motor is directly connected to the air pump. So that the number of rotations of the driving motor (rpm) automatically equals the speed of the air pump. Usually this type of direct driven compressor uses a motor with a speed of about 2,850 rpm and uses a single piston on the air pump. The advantage of this direct driven compressor type is that it is quite high at the speed of air delivery, because the air pump is rotated at a speed of 2,850 rpm. While the lack of direct driven type compressors is that the sound produced is so loud and noisy because it results from the high rotation of the air pump and also produces more water in the pressure tank.
This type of compressor uses a connection system between the driving force and the air pump using a v-belt. Usually belt driven compressors are often encountered at tire patches. This air compressor is the most widely used compared to other types of compressors. Belt Driven compressors are capable of producing around 1500 rpm, so this compressor is more durable and durable compared to the direct driven type. The Belt Driven compressor itself is divided into 4 types, namely:
- Single Stage Air Compressor (Working Pressure 8 Bar, Maximum Pressure 10 Bar)
- Two Stage Air Compressor (Working Pressure 12 Bar, Maximum Pressure 14 Bar)
- High Pressure Air Compressor (Working Pressure Up To 14 Bar)
- Booster Air Compressor
TYPE OF WIND / AIR COMPRESSORS BASED ON LUBRICATION SYSTEM:
Oil Less Compressors
This type of compressor does not require lubrication for the piston. This compressor has advantages, namely the air produced is free of oil and the air produced is cleaner, but the disadvantage of this compressor is that it cannot work with weight. Generally this type of oil less compressor is widely used in equipment that is free of oil such as better painting, medical needs, for the food industry, etc.
Lubricated compressor parts such as piston drives require oil or lubrication
Now that we know the parts and also the types of air compressors, then how do I take care of the compressor so that it doesn't get damaged quickly? Now here I share tips on how to care for a compressor that is good and right.
