Air Intake and Your Compressor - The Linkage
While there are a number of things that contribute to the functioning of an air compressor, the role of air intake is as important. It is essential that the intake air is clean and clear. Unclean and contaminated intake air can hamper the normal functioning of air compressors causing them to perform below efficiency levels.
Presence of moisture, dust and other such unwanted antibodies makes intake air unfit for intake. Excessive drop in efficiency levels can lead to extensive expenditure and wastage of energy. Once contaminants reach different parts of the compressor, they can damage these parts.
