South Gate Engineering manufactures both standard and custom A.S.M.E. Code Air Receivers for new and existing compressed air systems. Air Receivers are provided in all compressed air systems for the following reasons:
1. Storage capacity is essential to provide compressed air when short-term demand exceeds the compressor output.
2. Pulsation caused by the compressor operation is reduced as a result of the proper selection of the air receiver.
3. Adequate storage allows the compressor to cycle and not operate continuously.
Moisture and oil entrained in the air are allowed to settle to the bottom
of the air receiver where it can be periodically blown off.
V = Cr x ( Ci / Co )
= Air Receiver Volume (cu. Ft)
After calculating the air receiver capacity, inlet and outlet connections should be selected based on the size of the compressor outlet connection. Safety valves should be sized equal to or greater than the compressor capacity in cubic feet of free air.
