Industrial Air Compressor Installation

How to Install an Air Compressor thumbnailIndustrial air compressors offer a great benefit to any facility or building they service. An industrial air compressor that is well connected in the right place can offer a significant increase in productivity in addition to other benefits. As a result, there are considerations to take when it comes to installing your industrial air compressor. Here are some key points to keep in mind when it comes to installing an industrial air compressor.

  • Be sure the unit will have access to enough cubic units of incoming air flow. At least 1000 cubic feet of air flow per 5 hp is necessary
  • Be sure the unit will be placed in an adequate temperature since adverse temperatures can cause the compressor undue stress, potentially leading to early malfunction
  • Check for dust and humidity in the air and be sure the air will be well moisturized so the unit can run properly
  • Be mindful of noise levels when it comes to location. High noise levels can impede work performance as a result of those subject to the unit’s noise

Some measures can be taken in order to benefit the area of the industrial air compressor. An example is using floor dampeners to reduce vibration, noise level, and any possible damage to the floor. This can also prevent the air compressor from shaking too much, effectively reducing maintenance costs. Taking these measures will give your unit longevity while maintaining work productivity.
