Ambient conditions such as atmospheric pressure, temperature that varies with altitude altitude coupled with humidity have considerable impact on compressor performance. The app computes the atmospheric pressure for any given altitude. Data for some of the higher altitude (> 1000m) cities are also provided for convenience.
Compressor Specification Data:
A typical compressor specification data sheet is show in the screen shot. FAD, motor horsepower and rpm data are the minimum requirement based on manufacturers data sheet. Additional data pertaining to reciprocating cylinder helps to determine the swept volume as well as range for FAD for general verification. Volumetric efficiency is function of cylinder clearance and pressure ratio. Clearance in compressors are generally in the range of 4% to 12% of total swept volume. This helps to determine its actual free air delivery (FAD) capacity.
As the compressor put more hours in service, the natural wear and tear could bring down the performance of any compressor. Therefore, it is often necessary to run tests to determine its capacity and also any excess leakage in the compressed air system. This app helps to run quick tests to estimate the losses and concern for any further investigation.
Additional information such as cooler load, moisture level, isothermal efficiency etc. is provided for quick reference along with key performance criterion in app notes.
