As the name intimates the oil free compressors are tools that operate and compress the air without use of oil seat. In these equipments the air or gas is compressed with a specific action of simple or rotary screws. These are smaller in terms of capacity and size as compared to oiled compressors and are generally used at house projects or small scale industries. These are present in different types such as rotary screw compressors, rotary centrifugal compressors and reciprocating compressors. The most common of these that is widely used everywhere is rotary air compressor that makes use of screws to maintain placement. The major benefit of using these compressors is to reduce the risk of oil leak and contagion.
Applications of oil free air compressors
As described earlier these tools are ideal to be used at home as they keep more than two equipments running at same time. For example you can power your nail gun and driller at the same time using this compressor. These are also greatly adapted in the field of medical research as they prevent any type of contamination. Then these are also commonly observed in several industries such as automobile, food, construction, repairs and many more. These could very well handle the jobs that require smaller capacity and precise application.
As the tools lack lubrication the lifespan is lesser than lubricated one but it could be enhanced with proper maintenance. Even without use of oil these are not prone to regular breakdowns and give a stable energy force for smaller equipments. It is important to take regular care of these compressors to keep them in good condition.
The power requirements of the oil free compressors actually depend on the size and specification you have chosen. Before purchasing these equipments make sure the power output matches with the amp requirements of your machines. Commonly if the volume is above 1500 cubic ft per minute then these lightweight compressors could…
