Each compressor shall be normally mounted on the receiver but may be free-standing for larger installations. The receiver shall be manufactured to BS 5169, Class 3 and shall be sized such that with one compressor running the number of starts shall not exceed 10 for a working differential pressure of 1.3 bar. The receiver shall be fitted with a pressure gauge, pressure relief valve, automatic drain valve and two pressure switches controlling the duty and standby compressors respectively. These shall be adjustable over the range 3.5 to 7 bar. A duty selector switch, hours run meter for each compressor and the required starter control gear shall be mounted in the packaged control panel serving the compressor set unless otherwise stated. A normally closed 'common alarm' volt-free contact shall be provided in the packaged compressor control panel which shall be connected to the (BMS) for remote alarm indication. To ensure a clean, dry supply the air shall be passed through a pre-filter, dryer and after filter to remove all oil and other impurities before distribution. The pre-filter shall remove particles down to 1 micron and remaining oil content shall not exceed 0.5ppm. The after filter performance shall be 0.01 micron and 0.01ppm respectively. Both filters shall be fitted with automatic drains. A differential pressure switch across each filter shall sense when the filter requires changing and initiate an audible and visible alarm, adjacent to the plant and transmit the alarm to the central building management system.
