Compressed Air Systems IV: Supply Side Components
* Identify the components of a compressed air system on the supply side, and understand what they do; * Explain why compressed air has to be cooled and dried, and how this is achieved; * Compare the operation, benefits and drawbacks of different types of dryers; * Identify the purpose of receivers and how they contribute to energy efficiency; * Explain the purpose of filters and pressure control valves; and * Describe how a pressure/flow controller can provide stable, low pressure to the process to minimize un-regulated air loss.
Compressed air system components can usually identified by major function that they provide whether the function is related to compression, conditioning, filtration, distribution, and some nature of end use. Most systems have a supply-side and a demand-side. This course will explore the supply-side, which is normally where ambient air is processed into a pressurized, dry, clean form that can be used for many useful tasks.
