Air Receiver

EEI has designed, manufactured and supplied air receivers up to a volume of 35 m3 and a pressure of 20 kg/cm2 (g).

Air receiver tanks are designed to provide a supply buffer to meet short-term demands that can exceed the compressor capacity. They also serve to dampen compressor pulsations, separate out particles and liquids, and make the compressed air receiver system easier to control.

In principal two different air receivers are in a compressed air system:

  • Primary Receiver – located near the compressor, after the after-cooler but before filtration and drying equipment
  • Secondary Receiver – located close to points of larger intermittent air consumption

Air receivers in compressed air systems serve the important purposes of

  • equalizing the pressure variation from the start/stop and modulating sequence of the compressor
  • storage of air volume equalizing the variation in consumption and demand from the system
  • collecting condensate and water in the air after the compressor

In some cases, installing a larger air receiver tank to meet occasional peak demands can even allow for the use of a smaller compressor. with the following details for techno- commercial offer
