Size Your Compressed Air System to Meet Your Needs

When it comes to designing a compressed air system for a new or remodeled heavy truck/repair shop, there are several system requirements to look into. Depending on what kind of work a shop does, and how many people are using equipment, there are numerous compressed air system options and design qualities that can make a shop efficient and safe.

Air Compressor Options

When one is building a shop from the ground-up and looking to purchase a new compressor, it’s important to consider all of the equipment options and shop requirements in order to make the right purchase. Some questions to ask are:

What are you using the compressor to power?

How many people will be using power from the compressor at once?

What is the power supply at the shop? Do you need a trans- former to support the air compressor you are evaluating?

These questions can help you choose the right compressor capacity, whether it be a small reciprocating unit or an oil-flooded rotary screw compressor.

Air Treatment Solutions

Air cleanliness and filtration are especially important in a shop environment because of all of the equipment that compressors power. Clean, dry air, free of debris and moisture, keeps pneumatic shop tools and equipment running reliably for a long time. Effective compressed air drying also has a significant impact on the quality and integrity of vehicle service applications. It directly impacts end results, including paint finishes, where you can see issues such as ‘fish eyes’ and ‘orange peels.

Tire filling applications need clean dry air with the use of tire pressure monitoring systems, and there are long-term benefits of keeping the air dry and clean for long rim and tire life, he adds.

Air Delivery Systems

To create a truly efficient compressed air system, high-quality piping material is a must. While low-cost piping may be attractive at first, many of those materials can shatter, corrode and rust contaminating the air in your compressor. That makes those low-cost piping materials a little less attractive. A piping system with cleaner interior surfaces helps promote the smooth, laminar flow of the air it transports, reducing turbulence and associated pressure losses. The Simplair® system’s marine-grade aluminum construction provides superior corrosion resistance to keep pipe interior surfaces free of the oxidation-based contamination that can occur with steel systems.
