AIR COMPRESSOR STUDY UNIT


MODEL:WT 01

his Air Compressor Study Unit (Model: WT 01) is designed to enable students to study the characteristic of a two-stage air compressor and the compressed airflow through different types of flow arrangement. This unit is self-contained, fully instrumented, mild steel frame-mounted on raised foundation, with intercooler and air receivers. An AC motor drives the compressor. The intercooler will provide adequate cooling to the system and is supplied with pressure and temperature measuring instruments at the inlet and outlet.

DEMONSTRATION CAPABILITIES Investigation of the perfomance charateristics of a two staged air compressor Pressure losses in different pipe profiles (Flow devices, pipe diameters and shapes) Measurement of airflow rate using orifice flow metering device Measuring the temperatures and pressures at different compression stages Determining the power and output of a reciprocating

compressor Checking and calibrating safety devices (pressure switch, pressure relief valve) TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS a) Compressor:

2-stage reciprocating compressor First stage compressor Second stage compressor
