A tank-mounted screw air compressor is a type of screw compressor that is mounted on top of a storage tank. This type of compressor is commonly used in industrial and commercial settings, where a steady flow of compressed air is needed to power tools and equipment.
The compression process in a tank-mounted screw air compressor occurs within the compressor unit, which is mounted on top of the storage tank. The rotors within the compressor unit compress the air, which is then stored in the tank. The compressed air is cooled and filtered before it is delivered to the point of use.
The advantage of having the compressor and the storage tank in one unit is that it makes it more compact and easy to install. Additionally, the storage tank provides a reserve of compressed air, which can be used during periods of high demand. Tank-mounted screw compressors are also known for their high efficiency, reliability, and low maintenance requirements.
The Tank Mounted Rotary Screw Air Compressor is the ideal choice for heavy industrial applications requiring high volumes of compressed air. These energy saving designs are available as base mounted, tank mounted, and with, or without integrated refrigerated dryers. Its popular because it can quickly compress air without waiting for the air receiver tank to fill. They are commonly used to replace piston compressors where large volumes of high-pressure air are needed. Also it is very durable.
Some of the advantages of tank-mounted screw air compressor are as follows:
