A compressor must be able to deliver air constantly over long periods of time, in order to be able to meet the requirements especially during peak work cycles.
The tractor-mounted compressors are particularly useful, as they allow carrying out some activities keeping the engine off, by using the compressed air contained in the receiver. In this case the compressor, works as an energy storage system.
With the engine off, air storage on the tractor allows you to carry out prolonged operations on large areas of agricultural land, with lower air and noise pollution; moreover, it allows for considerable savings on fuel costs and reduces the wear and tear of the tractor.
As a matter of fact, the low rotation speed of the air end and the high volumetric efficiency ensure energy savings of more than 15% compared to other rotary compressors.
Moreover, thanks to the use of white metal bushes lubricated with oil that do not wear over time, the maintenance operations only involve oil change and air filter cleaning or replacement and radiator cleaning, allowing the compressors to operate for over 100,000 hours, with no key component replacement and no significant overhaul required.
To this end, it is necessary to precisely know the compressed air requirement, the profile of use establishes proper sizing to ensure a payback period that ensures the lowest energy consumption, the lease wear, and the lowest maintenance for machines operating in difficult environmental conditions.
