There are different types of compressors depending on your usage requirements. A compressor is a component in many machines like air-conditioning, refrigerants, and vehicles. The main function of a compressor is to moderate the circling refrigerant inside the circuit, attracting it as a gas from the evaporator and after that packing it and conveying it at higher weight to the condenser. Important points about its maintenance include regular checking and usage of an appropriate type of compressor oil for its lubrication.
Types of Compressors:
Reciprocating compressors – or cylinder compressors, separated into hermetic, semi-hermetic and open, are utilized most importantly for applications with high cooling limit prerequisites. In the past these were additionally utilized as a part of utilizations with low cooling limits because of their low expenses, in any case they’ve logically been supplanted by rotating compressor.
These sorts of compressors receive a volumetric pressure framework utilizing cylinders and work much like an inner burning motor. The cylinders keep running all over inside chambers, delivering suction and pressure of the refrigerant gas. Every chamber has a suction valve for the gas refrigerant and a release valve to convey the gas to the condenser in the wake of having been packed.
Gas compressors – a gas compressor a mechanical gadget that builds the weight of a gas by diminishing its volume. An air compressor is a particular sort of gas compressor.
Compressors are like pumps: both expand the weight on a liquid and both can transport the liquid through a funnel. As gasses are compressible, the compressor additionally diminishes the volume of a gas. Fluids are generally incompressible; while some can be packed, the fundamental activity of a pump is to pressurize and transport fluids.
Screw compressors – depend on a component made up of two intermeshing screws, called rotors. As the rotors rotate, the liquid is attracted through the delta port, filling the volume between two projections.
At the point when the spaces between the flaps are loaded with liquid, suction stops, the liquid between the projections is then constrained because of revolution into an inexorably little space, creating pressure. At the point when the flaps achieve a specific position, the packed liquid is totally released through the outlet port. These compressors require copious grease because of the cross section of the two rotors. Plenteous grease and consequent cooling of the oil utilizing an exceptional warmth exchanger ensures higher pressure proportions than responding compressors, which means wide use in both refrigeration and ventilating (substantial chillers working on R410A).
Rotary vane compressors – comprise of a rotor with various sharp edges embedded in spiral spaces in the rotor. The rotor is mounted counterbalanced in a bigger lodging that is either roundabout or a more perplexing shape. As the rotor turns, sharp edges slide all through the openings keeping contact with the external mass of the housing. Thus, a progression of expanding and diminishing volumes is made by the pivoting cutting edges. Turning Vane compressors are, with cylinder compressors one of the most established of compressor advances.
