As we all know air storage tank plays an important role is compressed air systems, a finely made air receiver tank could help air compressor save energy to large extent. How?

Use air tank of large capacity
If there is no air storage tank used, the air compressor has to repeat loading and unloading moves very frequently, resulting in a large amount of energy waste. This can be solved by using a large capacity air reservoir tank

Reduce Elbows In The Pipe
The elbows in the pipe will increase the flow resistance of compressed air and form an additional work point. In addition, the elbow will form gas impact on the position and pressure will increase, resulting a continuous high pressure work environment and that’s very easy to unload. The solution to this problem is to optimize the pipeline construction, try to avoid the use of elbows, hence reduce energy loss.

Fix Air Leaks
The air compressor system is a continuously running body, in which every component and joint could possibly face the air/gas leaking issue. Inspect each point of the system that involves use of gas and find out the less efficient link (leakage) , replace them with new items to achieve energy saving.

Apply Air Storage Tanks Properly
In a production line, there are different types of gas in use: continuous gas, small-scale pulse gas, large-scale pulse gas, and open gas. They are usually performed in the same pipe, in which large capacity of instant air supply is required, resulting in the reduce of air pressure inside the pipe and higher energy consumption of air compressor to supply sufficient air. In this case, rational configuration of air storage tanks in some points are required to provide sufficient air.
