Compressor Delivery Passages

By 11 May 2018

After delivery, the air is at pressure so any enclosure is a pressure vessel with all the design limitations that that implies. Whether it be a simple damper to reduce the effect of compressor pulsation or a larger receiver to store a substantial amount of air to meet a variable demand, it will act as an acoustic barrier to noise in the delivery passages. To suppress vibration it may prove necessary to apply treatment to its exterior. Bear in mind that passages up to the cooler will be at high temperature and the treatment must be resistant to heat.
