Air tanks absorb pressure waves at the compressor outlet. Smooth, constant air pressure suddenly. Stores the amount of air required to supply sudden air demands exceeding the compressor capacity.
The capacity of the air tank is determined depending on the compressor capacity and the shape of the air demand. The other benefit of the air tank; it makes easier condensation of moisture and the discharge of condensation formed. Water collected at the bottom of the air reservoir as a result of condensation of moisture should be discarded from the system.
If possible, air tank should be placed in the coldest ground on that facility. If the air of the environment causes corrosion, the air tank must be painted with a special primer. If necessary, advice should be obtained from the manufacturer or distributor before the air tank is made.
