Stainless Steel Air Tanks Are Key Components Of Air Compressor Post-Processing Equipment

In the pulse of contemporary industrial production, air compressors play an indispensable role. They are not only the center of energy conversion, but also the power source for driving countless mechanical arms.

However, the moisture, oil droplets and particulate impurities carried in the original compressed air are like hidden stumbling blocks, which may damage downstream equipment and affect the purity and performance of the end product. It is based on such challenges that air compressor post-processing equipment came into being, and they constitute a key link in the compressed air processing chain.

In this complex and sophisticated post-processing system, the stainless steel gas tank is a core component, and its importance cannot be underestimated. It is not only a reliable container for storing purified compressed air, but also relies on the excellent properties of stainless steel materials - excellent corrosion resistance, high strength and long-term stability, which ensures the purity of the gas and the safe operation of the system.

Post-processing Equipment Components

Air compressor post-processing equipment is a key system to ensure that compressed air reaches the high quality required for industrial applications. It mainly includes several core components, each of which has its unique function and importance. Below, we will focus on the air tank, refrigerated dryer, adsorption dryer.Air compressor post-processing equipment

  • Air Tank:Air storage tanks are containers used to store and buffer compressed air in post-processing equipment. They are usually made of stainless steel or carbon steel and have good pressure resistance and corrosion resistance.
  • Refrigerated Dryer:A refrigerated dryer is a device that uses a refrigeration cycle to reduce the temperature of compressed air so that the water vapor in it condenses into liquid and is removed.
  • Adsorption Dryer:Adsorption dryers use specific adsorbents (such as molecular sieves or activated alumina) to absorb moisture from the air under pressure changes to achieve deep drying.

Brief Description Of Post-Processing Process

  • Compression stage: The air compressor compresses the air in the atmosphere to a high pressure state.
  • Preliminary filtration: The compressed air first enters the primary filter to remove large particles of impurities.
  • Cooling (if equipped): The temperature of the compressed air is reduced by the cooling device to promote the condensation of water vapor.
  • Drying: The moisture content in the compressed air is greatly reduced by using a dryer.
  • Precision filtration: Fine particles and oil mist are removed by precision filters to ensure pure air.
  • Oil mist separation (if necessary): Further separation of residual oil.
  • Gas storage and buffering: The purified air is introduced into the stainless steel gas tank to provide a stable air pressure output.
  • Automatic drainage: Periodically and automatically remove the accumulated moisture in the system to maintain air quality and system efficiency.

Stainless Steel Gas Tank Maintenance And Safety Specifications

The maintenance and safety regulations of stainless steel gas tanks are the cornerstones to ensure the long-term stable operation of equipment and prevent accidents. It is crucial to follow the correct maintenance procedures and safe operation guidelines. Here are some key points:

Daily inspection points

  1. Pressure gauge inspection: Daily confirm whether the pressure gauge reading is accurate, consistent with the set value, and the pointer is not stuck or damaged. Regularly calibrate the pressure gauge to ensure its accuracy.
  2. Valve function test: Check whether all valves (including inlet valves, outlet valves, and safety valves) are flexible to open, tight to close, and leak-free. Pay special attention to whether the safety valve is in normal working condition and whether it can release pressure in time when overpressure occurs.
  3. Leak detection: Regularly check the tank body, pipe joints, and valve connections with soapy water or other leak detection fluids to observe whether bubbles are generated to identify potential leaks.

Regular maintenance

  1. External cleaning and inspection: Remove dust and oil from the outside of the gas tank, and check whether the tank body has dents, cracks, or signs of corrosion. Minor corrosion can be treated with stainless steel special cleaners, and severe corrosion requires professional evaluation, repair, or replacement.
  2. Internal cleaning and inspection: According to the frequency of use and the nature of the medium, regular internal cleaning is performed to remove possible accumulated moisture, oil stains and impurities to prevent the growth of microorganisms. Check the internal corrosion and repair it if necessary.
  3. Maintenance records: Establish a detailed maintenance log to record the date, results and measures taken for each inspection, cleaning and maintenance, which provides a basis for subsequent maintenance and is also a compliance certificate.

Safety operation guide

  1. Emergency stop: Operators should be familiar with the location and operation method of the emergency stop button. Once an abnormality is found (such as severe vibration, abnormal sound, serious leakage, etc.), press the emergency stop button immediately to cut off the power supply and gas supply.
  2. Pressure release: Before performing any maintenance work, ensure that the pressure in the gas tank has been completely released, which can be done by manually opening the safety valve or installing a controlled exhaust valve.
  3. Explosion-proof measures: The gas tank should be set in a safe area with good ventilation, away from fire sources and flammable materials. Install explosion-proof discs or explosion-proof caps to prevent explosions caused by excessive pressure in extreme cases. In addition, comply with the fire and explosion prevention regulations in the area and configure necessary fire-fighting facilities.

How To Choose A Suitable Stainless Steel Gas Tank

  1. Capacity selection: When determining the capacity of the required gas tank, the compressor's exhaust volume per minute, the volatility of the system's gas consumption, and the need for emergency reserves should be considered. Too large may lead to waste of resources, while too small may not meet peak production needs.
  2. Pressure level: Select a gas tank that matches the compressor's output pressure, while considering the working pressure required by the end equipment in the system to ensure that the gas tank can withstand and stably provide the required pressure level.
  3. Installation space: Measure the size of the space at the installation site, including height, width, and length restrictions, to ensure that the selected gas tank can be installed smoothly, while leaving enough space for maintenance and inspection.
  4. Interfaces and accessories: Consider the size of the gas tank's inlet and outlet, the connection method, and whether additional accessories (such as filters, dryers, etc.) are required for compatibility.
