COMPRESSED AIR AFTERCOOLERS

Compressed Air Aftercoolers

What are compressed air aftercoolers and why are they required? Find out everything you need to know about aftercoolers in this article, including the two most common types, why they’re important, and their role within an air compressor system. What Is An Aftercooler? An aftercooler is a mechanical heat exchanger designed to remove the heat-of-compression […]

Air-Receiver-Tank

How To Size An Air Receiver Tank

Many air compressor applications can benefit from the installation of one or more air receiver tanks. An air receiver tank increases the amount of air available on demand, allowing for higher duty cycles and more powerful applications. Air receiver tanks are sized in gallons, and can range from small 5- and 10-gallon tanks to massive […]

Why does hose size affect my compressor airflow?

It’s important to consider appropriate sizing of all components of your air system.  If you are investing in an air compressor system, restricting the flow anywhere in your system could make it significantly underperform or cost you a lot more in energy costs to run that compressor over its lifetime. As air travels from the […]

Multifunction-Control Box

4 Helpful Features of Your Multifunction Control Box

The VMAC Multifunction power system (MF) control box does a lot more than turn your air compressor on and off. VMAC’s engineers programmed the control box to share important information with operators and crane controllers, and it therefore serves as the communication hub for your MF multi-power system.

Hydraulic-Control Box

Top 5 VMAC Hydraulic Air Compressor Control Box Features

The control box in the VMAC hydraulic air compressor is the computer that tells the compressor what to do and when to do it. Control boxes also give a voice to air compressors and allow them to share important information via the display box that can help with system maintenance, operation, and diagnosing issues.

UNDERHOOD-ControlBox

What’s Your UNDERHOOD™ Control Box Telling You?

Every UNDERHOOD™ air compressor comes with a control box that helps the system communicate with the operator. While most operators are familiar with the very basic controls—“on” and “off”—there are dozens of unique messages the control boxes can share with you.

Air Compressor Pressure Relief Valves: Purpose & Testing

What Are Pressure Relief Valves, And How Do They Work? A compressed air pressure vessel and its operator must be protected from an over-pressure situation—the set pressure of the pressure relief device must not exceed the maximum allowable working pressure (MAWP) marked on the air pressure vessel. A pressure relief valve is used to control […]

Temperature Sensors & Switches

Why Is My Compressor Shutting Off? Temperature Sensors and Switches

Temperature Sensors and Switches Temperature switches and sensors are used on applications which require a solution to a temperature control situation. Often less complicated than most electronic controls, temperature sensors and switches are relatively easy to set up. Temperature sensors are often used for monitoring compressor coolant, oil and air inlet temperatures as well as […]
