What is the impact of a round of cold air on the air compressor?

In the early morning of September 22, the Central Meteorological Observatory released a high wind cooling forecast this morning. The Central Meteorological Observatory predicts that due to the influence of the new cold air, from the 22nd to the 24th, most of the area north of the Huai River will have a northerly wind of 4 to 6 from north to south, and a gust of 7 to 9; The temperature in some areas north of the Huai River will drop by 4 to 8 °C, of which the local cooling range in central and eastern Inner Mongolia, western Jilin, western Heilongjiang, and southern Gansu will reach about 10 °C. What is the impact of cold air on air compressor equipment? Let’s take a look.

  1. The influence of cold weather on air compressors

Air compressor equipment will produce high temperature during operation, a large amount of water vapor will be generated at high temperatures, and after the cold air enters the air compressor, this will increase the burden of water vapor filtration after the air compressor, so it is necessary to often discharge the water in the treatment equipment.

  1. The influence of cold weather on air compressor lubricating oil

The oil circuit system is an important part of the air compressor circulation system. During normal operation, due to the rotation of the machine, the oil circuit system will produce friction, and the heat generated by friction will increase the temperature of the lubricating oil. Low temperatures are very beneficial for oil-circuit systems that require cooling. However, for spare equipment or air compressors that have not been started for many years, when the oil circuit is started again at low temperatures, the lubricating oil may condense due to low temperatures, so it will fail at start-up. Therefore, it is necessary to check the oil circuit system to see if the lubricating oil is normal.

In cold and low temperature weather, the incidence of screw air compressor unit failure increases. Therefore, we should always pay attention to the operation of the air compressor, adhere to regular maintenance, prevent the failure of the air compressor, and ensure the safety and smooth progress of production.
