Ensuring that your air compressor is the right size for your brewery is critical, not only for completing the tasks, but also for your wallet. To determine which air compressor would work best in your brewery, ask yourself:
1. What do you need it for? Bottling? Keg filling or cleaning? Packaging?
2. What is the flow that your system needs?
3. How much space do you have?
4. What is your power source?
No matter the answers to the questions, Ingersoll Rand has the air compressor for your brewery that will save you money in operating costs, help avoid headaches of constant repairs and the expertise from service techs to guarantee the proper maintenance when necessary.
Reciprocating Air Compressor:
Reciprocating compressors, also known as electric single-stage or two-stage compressors, are available in many sizes, voltages, and horsepower options. These compressors sit on horizontal or vertical tanks ranging from 30 to 120 gallons, run 200 or 230V, with 5, 7.5, 10, 20 or 25HP. Be sure to consult with an Ingersoll Rand representative before purchasing your compressor. We want to make sure that you have the right setup & fulfilled needs for your brewery.
Rotary Screw Air Compressors:
Although they are larger than our reciprocating compressors, our rotary screw compressors, ranging from 5-500 hp, have components throughout the compressor that involve high-tech technology and a built-in Total Air System (TAS) that provides clean, dry air in the single package. This alone will save you up to 80% of the traditional installation cost of individual air treatment equipment.
