If you make high demands on your compressor you need to build an air receiver into your system. This vertical receiver has a small footprint and provides a valuable reservoir of compressed air. This receiver has a galvanised finish and a maximum working pressure of 11.5 Bar.
Why Do I Need an Air Receiver?
When you add a receiver, you can handle high air consumption peaks by drawing from the reservoir of compressed air. The benefit of this is that it stabilises working pressure of your system and provides a stable air flow.
You should not stop and start your compressor too frequently because it will damage your equipment. That is why every manufacturer will recommend a maximum number of starts and stops each hour. When you choose the correct size of air receiver for your needs, you protect your compressor from excessive wear and tear. When you are choosing a compressor, we recommend that you check that it can cope with the level of demand you place on it and use an appropriate air receiver if you need one.
