Six Vulnerable Parts of Screw Air Compressor

Time: 2017-04-06

Screw air compressor with a series of unique advantages for a simple structure, working reliable and easy to operate, and thus make it with the industry's great attention since the date of birth. But in the daily production of enterprises, usually should replace some of the air compressor vulnerable parts, if not handled properly, it will directly affect the normal operation of air compressor and equipment safety.

1. Air Filter

Ail Filter

Air compressor filter is composed of air filter and filter element, the external through the joints and threaded pipe connected to the air compressor inlet valve, so as to filter into the air of dust, particles and other impurities. Different air compressor models can install the air filter according to the the air intake.

2. Oil Filter

Oil Filter

Generally Oil filter is a paper filter, the function is to remove impurities in the oil such as metal particles, oil deterioration, etc., filtration accuracy between 5um-10um, to protect the bearing and the rotor.

3. Oil Separator Element

Oil Separator Element

Oil- gas separator filter made of a number of fine glass fiber, the mist oil inside compressed air will be completely filtered through the oil-gas separator. Under normal operation, the oil-gas separator can be used for about 3000 hours.

4. Lubricating Oil

Lubricating Oil

The function of air compressor oil is in the friction between the two critical points to form a protective film to avoid contacting between screws, thus buffering the friction effect, play a role in lubrication, reduce wear and tear, in addition to cooling, noise reduction, sealed, rust and other effects.



Belt with good flexibility, it can reduce impact and vibration when working, operate smoothly and without noise. When whit large load, the belt slips on the wheel, which can prevent damage to other parts, from the safety protection.

6.Solenoid Valve

 Solenoid Valve

Using in the air compressor control system to adjust the direction of the media, flow, speed and other parameters.
