Identifying the Best Industrial Equipment Supplier

Hello! My name is Tina. I have spent the past 6 months planning a series of blog posts which will explain the steps you can take to identify the best industrial equipment supplier. I was inspired to learn more about this interesting topic by my son, Gavin. Gavin has recently started work in the industrial supply industry. As he still lives at home, we often have long chats about his day when he returns home from work. The articles I have posted on this blog are based on the many conversations I had with Gavin. I hope you enjoy reading them.

Factors Influencing the Location of Your Compressed Air Treatment System

Once you have bought a compressed air treatment system for your facility, you then have to determine what will be the best location for this system. Some people may assume that as long as they have an unused area for this system, they can have it installed in that designated spot. But the reality is selecting a location for your compressor needs more considerations than merely finding an allocated space. Keep in mind that your choice of location will also have a direct effect on the longevity of the system. So what should guide your decision? Here are two factors that will influence the placement of your compressed air treatment system.

Accessibility for the servicing of the compressor

Compressed air treatment systems are workhorses. And since they are typically in operation twenty-four hours a day, they are bound to develop some hiccups due to regular wear. For that reasons, it is essential to ensure that you chose a location for this system that will allow for ready accessibility when the system needs to be serviced.

One way of ensuring that the system can be maintained is by having a substantial radius around the system that will allow any doors to be opened fully. Secondly, take note that a few of the components that the compressor is made up of can be quite massive. Thus, you need to allocate sufficient space to allow the removal of these components if they require repairs or replacement.

Optimum ambient temperature and air circulation

The second factor that will guide your choice of placement for your compressed air treatment system is the ambient temperature of the location as well as the air circulation in the area. When picking out a spot, deliberate on areas that have a low ambient temperature. This is critical because the compressor is bound to generate heat when it is in operation. Therefore, if the room is already warm, there is a high risk of overheating, which translates into frequent malfunctions and repairs.

Furthermore, a high initial temperature in the space can also lead to the degradation of lubricants, which leads to degradation of the internal components. Secondly, you should make sure that there is enough ventilation and air circulation in your chosen location. When the compressed air treatment system generates heat, it eliminates warm air. Without adequate air circulation and ventilation, the system intakes warm air, and this can cause it to shut down.
