3.1 Sufficient space should be reserved for maintenance work.
3.2 The ground should preferably be a smooth cement surface. The compressor base should be placed on a concrete platform about 150mm above the ground, with a platform levelness not exceeding 0.5/1000 (mm). Grooves of dimensions specified by the user should be provided between the platform and its surroundings.
3.3 When placing the compressor unit on the platform, ensure a good fit between the bottom of the casing and the ground to minimize vibration and noise.
3.4 For users with conditions, the walls of the equipment room can be covered with sound-absorbing panels to further reduce noise. However, avoid using hard surface materials such as ceramic tiles to decorate the walls.
3.5 Since air-cooled compressors are greatly affected by ambient temperature, the equipment room should be well-ventilated, dry, equipped with exhaust fans, and maintain the environmental temperature of the compressor between 5°C to 40°C.
3.6 The equipment room should have low dust, clean air, and be free of corrosive media such as harmful gases and sulfuric acid.
Air compressors generate heat, especially air-cooled ones. Therefore, proper ventilation in the plant is crucial. Considering the external wind direction, installing exhaust equipment is necessary.
The exhaust volume should be greater than the circulation fan or cooling fan’s airflow, and the area of the cooling air inlet should be sufficiently large. Additionally, a guide hood can be installed at the exhaust fan outlet on top of the air compressor to draw away the hot air and maintain the room temperature between 5-40°C. When using exhaust ducts, space should be reserved for flexible joints to facilitate maintenance (such as when cleaning the cooler, there is enough space to remove compressor covers and other parts).
