5 Ways To Reuse Your Air Tank (Now That You Don’t Need One)

One of the coolest benefits of rotary screw air compressors is that they don’t need an air receiver tank. Instead, these powerhouse air compressors operate at 100% duty cycle and provide instant air on demand. But there’s one “problem” that many operators experience after they upgrade their recip to rotary screw: their old air receiver […]

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 […]

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 […]

Auxiliary port driven air compressor system considerations

Today many industrial engines come equipped, or can be ordered with, an auxiliary port (pump drive) that is used to power accessory equipment.  Quite often you will find a hydraulic pump or a standard piston type air compressor mounted there; what isn’t seen much is a rotary screw compressor mounted there.  We’ve had many inquiries […]

Compressed Air Storage Tank

The Purpose and Functions of Compressed Air Storage Tank

We’re often asked if a particular air compressor installation requires the use of an air receiver tank. Most applications will benefit from the use of air storage whether it’s a vertical or horizontal air tank. The choice of what style of tank is generally made by the installation location and the amount and type of […]
