What are commercial air compressors?
Commercial air compressors or as it is widely known as industrial-grade compressors are bulk compressing units that are used for the same purpose of converting power into energy based on pressurized air supply. These have a comparatively higher output or discharge power than those domestic used compressors. These demand specific power requirements and also particular tools for its utility. These types of devices are generally found in stationary units which are large in size and are often more powerful than the residential units. These come with spacious tanks for more intake and overall capacity. These units are mostly driven by electricity as the fuel variants are comparatively more expensive and less reliable. There are also gas-powered variations which are mobile and can be taken from place to place but are relatively costlier.
What are the types of commercial air compressors?
There are basically two types of commercial units namely, the single-stage and two-stage. Single stage units are basically based on the rotary screw and reciprocating air compressor units that are used widely in industrial applications on a smaller scale whereas the two-stage units consisting of two pistons for double air compression are more effective on a larger scale and are widely used in tools like jack-hammers, impact wrenches and grinders.
Power requirements related to commercial units: –
The most average type of power requirements coming out of an air compressor is generally in the range of 90-130 psi in which most of the tools operate. This is mainly calculated using a simple equation, i.e., by adding the cubic feet unit per minute or CFM ratings of all the tools to be used simultaneously and another 25% of the total ratings to meet the errors generated during the processes.
