Compair 300l Air Receiver Tank

Absolutely essential to any compressed air system, air receiver tanks not only serve as temporary storage, but they also allow your system to perform more efficiently.

Air receivers store compressed air for peak demand. Air is readily available at a constant pressure, while you save on energy costs and extend your compressor’s lifespan

An air receiver tank is an integral and important part of any compressed air system. Typically a receiver tank is sized at 6-10 times the flow rate of the system. So, if a compressor has a rating of 25 scfm at 100 psig, the receiver tank should be 150 cubic feet, minimum. In a compressed air system, a receiver tank provides the following benefits:

  1. The receiver tank acts as a reservoir of compressed air for peak demands.
  2. The receiver tank will help remove water from the system by allowing the air a chance to cool.
  3. The receiver tank minimizes pulsation in the system caused by a reciprocating compressor or a cyclic process downstream.

Much like a water reservoir provides water during times of drought and stores water during the wet times, an air receiver tank compensates for peak demand and helps balance the supply of the compressor with the demand of the system.

The receiver tank as required by law includes a pressure relief valve and a pressure gauge.
