CENTRIFUGAL AIR COMPRESSOR BASICS

Description:

Ever wondered how a centrifugal air compressor works? This PPT talks about the basic points covering the functioning of a centrifugal air compressor. The two points to discuss here include the efficiency of this kind of a compressor and the capacity at which it runs. Are these compressors the sole choice that you must consider? No! There are different compressors available and each has a different capacity. Through this power point presentation on centrifugal air compressors you can learn the key pointers about this variety. The list of advantages and disadvantages that one is likely to experience while using these air compressors are also listed in this content asset created for the commoner to understand centrifugal air compressors.

TWO IMPORTANT POINTS
  • Centrifugal compressors operate most effectively
    at full capacity.
  • The capacity should be stated at plant conditions
    measured in actual cubic feet per minute (acfm).

3
  • Centrifugal air compressors are dynamic in nature
    and are best used where demand is relatively
    constant.

4
  • These compressors are oil-free and hence provide
    lubricant-free air.

5
  • Centrifugal air compressors are high-speed
    machines. Thus they have shaft vibration monitors
    for recording operational trends.

6
List of Benefits
  • Works on an oil-free basis and hence delivers
    lubricant-free air.
  • Gives extremely high-efficiency
  • Have low maintenance cost.
  • Has a number of industrial uses.

7
Disadvantages
  • Has a limited capacity.
  • Requires high rotational speed for operating as
    well as special bearings to run efficiently.
  • Required specialized maintenance and timely
    optimization.
