Receiver Tanks Featured

Air receivers are designed to provide a supply buffer to meet short-term demand spikes that can exceed the compressor capacity. They also serve to dampen reciprocating compressor pulsations, separate out particles and liquids, and make the compressed air system easier to control. In some cases, installing a larger receiver tank to meet occasional peak demands can even allow for the use of a smaller compressor.

All of our air receiver tanks meet the stringent specifications of the ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers).

Robotic welding and plasma cutting ensures each air tank we sell will stand up to the most demanding environments.

Air Receiver Sizing

Sizing the Air Receiver

The air receiver must in general be sized according

  • the variation in the consumption demand
  • the compressor size and the modulation strategy

In general it is possible to calculate the maximum consumption in the system by summarizing the demand of each consumer. The summarized consumption must be multiplied with a

  • usage factor ranging 0.1 - 1

depending on the system. In practice it is common that the manufacturer use standardized receivers for specific compressor models based on their know-how.

For calculating the receiver, note that it is necessary with a pressure band for the receiver to be effective. If the consumption process requires 100 psig and the compressor is set to 100 psig, there is no storage and no buffer. Any increased demand makes a pressure drop below 100 psig until the compressor controls respond by increasing the volume compressed.

If the compressors operates at 110 psig the difference between 110 psig and 100 psig accounts for the air stored in the receiver. If the demand increase, the pressure can drop 10 psig before the minimum requirement is met. Pressure and flow controllers can be used after the receiver for stabilizing downstream pressure to 100 psig and flattening demand peaks. Note that in a compressed air system the pipe work also makes the purpose of a buffered volume.

The receiver volume may be calculated with the formula:

t = V (p1 - p2) / C pa         (1)

where

V = volume of the receiver tank (cu ft)

t = time for the receiver to go from upper to lower pressure limits (min)

C = free air needed (scfm)

pa= atmosphere pressure (14.7 psia)

p1 = maximum tank pressure (psia)

p2 = minimum tank pressure (psia)

It is also common to size receivers:

  • to 1 gallon for each ACFM (Actual Cubic Feet per Minute), or
  • 4 gallons per compressor hp (horse power)
