Air Receiver Tanks

Air Receiver Tanks


Investing in an air receiver tank is a wise best practice. The tank increases system storage, slows the velocity of compressed air traveling through the pipework and assists with moisture removal and pressure equalisation. When a compressor switches from load to idle, it reduces the amount of power being consumed by its electric motor. Therefore an air receiver tank is a one time purchase, requiring little, or no maintenance and producing an excellent ROI. This should always be the target, which is why we always say “you can never have enough storage.”

In addition, the tank acts as a buffer for the compressor’s control valving. This prevents rapid cycling and premature wear and tear of valves inside the machine, which, in turn, reduces maintenance costs.
The tank also slows the velocity of air and creates a cyclonic motion as the air passes through it. This reduces the oil/water condensate load on all downstream clean air treatment filters and dryers, further reducing filter and other maintenance costs.

The system

Air Receiver tanks are an important piece of any compressed air system. Creating storage provides multiple benefits, from moisture removal, pressure equalisation and energy conservation. In a perfect world, installing both wet, (upstream of clean air treatment), and dry, (downstream of clean air treatment) storage tanks is a best practice.

When you speak to us, ask for an Air Demand Analysis. It will give you the performance data of your current compressed air system and show the savings you can generate. We offer a performance guarantee - if we don’t identify inefficiencies within your system which are equivalent to the cost of the ADA study, then the study will be free! And in the meantime, download the Ultimate Guide on Rightsizing your Compressed Air System. You can stop being frustrated that they were over promised and under delivered, and instead be confident with a radically different solution that serves your needs better at a lower cost.
