Compressor for the foam concrete machine

Compressor for the foam concrete manufacturing

In the foam concrete mixtures manufacturing, compressed air is required to supply the mixture from the foam concrete machine.

For this, an air compressor is usually used.

An air compressor is a device that converts power (using an electric motor, diesel or gasoline engine) into potential energy stored in pressurized air.

The force of air pressure depends on several factors.

They can also be classified according to the design and principle of operation:

  • Single-Stage Reciprocating Compressor
  • Two-Stage Reciprocating Compressor
  • Compound Compressor
  • Rotary-screw compressor
  • Rotary Vane Compressor
  • Scroll Compressor
  • Turbo compressor
  • Centrifugal compressor

Each type of these devices has its own technical characteristics and features.

Air compressors vary in performance, pressure, stability of operation in different environmental conditions, and in the type of design.

Air compressors can be classified as stationary, operating in stationary work conditions and mobile - the most popular with consumers.

The main thing you need to pay attention to is that the compressor in the foam concrete manufacturing is capable of providing air mixing equipment.

With foam concrete machines of the BAS series, air compressors are used which include the receiver.

When choosing an air compressor for the foam concrete manufacturing, you need to pay attention to the performance of the compressor and the receiver tank capacity.

If the compressor breaks - the amount of compressed air contained will depend on the duration of the equipment you use.

In addition, the receiver tank capacity affects the elimination of pulsations when air is supplied under pressure.

Characteristics that a compressor for the manufacturing of foam concrete

Different foam concrete machines require different compressors with different capacities and different receiver tank capacity.

Tips for those who choose a compressor for the manufacturing of foam concrete

When choosing an air compressor, think about the fact that maybe you will use it not only for the foam concrete manufacturing.

It can be used for other things in construction.
