Compressed Air Guide Displacement Volume Free Air Delivered Pressure This term is used to decide the theoretical volume of a compressor i e the swept volume of a cylinder multiplied by the number of compressions in a minute and expressed in cubic feet per minute CFM This figure should not be used in calculating the size of compressor required as it bears no relationship to the free air figure that you may require This measurement is the volume of air taken into a compressor and therefore describes more accurately the volume of air available for use Expressed as CFM FAD at a given pressure This is the way force i e in the compressed air system is expressed and is measured in either pounds per square inch psi or bar Single Stage Compressors Two Stage Compressors Cost of Air Leaks One or more cylinders producing the final pressure in one compression Normal maximum pressure 150 psi g First Stage Air is compressed to approximately 30 psi g cooled then compressed to final pressure in the second stage Hissing Sid is at work in most companies you visit Hissing Sid is a length of air hose which has become the family air loom It must be because this hose is costing its owner a small fortune and yet to suggest replacement would be a cardinal sin So what does Hissing Sid cost to run Remember Displacement is the theory and CFM FAD is the actual volume available Normal maximum pressure 200 psi g Note Two stage provides more air for less energy Pressure is important because to have too low a pressure would cause the equipment not to work correctly too high a pressure would at best rapidly wear out the equipment at worst it could make the equipment lethal Air Leak Size CFM Lost Energy 1 6 6 5 300W 1100W 0 75mm dia 1 5mm dia Power Supply Single Phase Three Phase Standard supply for domestic and light industry 230V Main electrical supply to industry 5A light circuit 13A ring main 400V any size of compressor 45A cooker shower not suitable for equipment Max 2 5 HP std compressor Max 3 0 HP for LC compressors Max 3 5HP compressor Main benefit of Single Phase Excellent second hand resale value Main benefits of Single Phase Approx 2 3 cost saving over single phase Stable supply Longer motor life 20
