A compressor must be able to deliver air constantly in time, even 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.
The endurance with the tractor off, which allows you to carry out prolonged operations on large areas of agricultural land, involves first of all 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 bearing 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 component replacement and no significant overhaul required.
To this end, it is necessary to precisely know the compressed air requirement, the profile of use and search, among various alternatives, for the one that in the established payback period ensures the lowest energy consumption, keeping the resistance to wear of the machines in mind, as they are often operating in difficult environmental conditions.
