AIR COMPRESSOR FOR CONSTRCTION
ELGi air compressors are a preferred choice in the construction industry. Trolley mounted portable air compressors and Diare designed to operate at extreme temperature and adverse conditions. They are deployed for concrete mix applications and should meet the critical requirements of high speed, reliable performance and at the same time, economical to operate and maintain.
WHAT IS AN AIR COMPRESSOR USED FOR IN CONSTRUCTION?
With about $10 trillion spent on construction-related goods and services every year, the construction sector is one of the largest in the world economy.
Portable / Towable air compressors can be easily spotted on many construction spots across the world as they are extremely useful due to their high output and efficiency. Heavy-duty portable air compressors are most robust and well-suited to the unique needs of road building, restoration work, civil engineering and various other construction applications. They are designed to handle tough site conditions as well as hard to reach site locations, delivering consistent performance. Compressed air in construction is used also to power tools on the site such as power hammers, drills, saws, wrenches, nail guns and numerous other pneumatic tools. One of the major advantages of using air compressor on a construction site is the noise free operation and lucid maintenance.
COMMON APPLICATIONS OF COMPRESSED AIR
- Pneumatic Tools – Compressed air is an excellent source of energy for power tools such as drills, jack hammers, impact wrenches, grinders, sanders, nail guns and other vital construction equipment. The main advantage of using air compressors to power these tools is that instead of using a variety of tools each requiring their own power source, air compressor can be used to power each tool as needed.
- Lifting and handling operation –Lifting and handling operations are unavoidable in the construction industry. Lifting operation can be carried out both manually and using lifting equipment. Lifting equipment and handling devices use portable screw air compressor which ensures reliable and safe lifting and lowering of the load.
- Road digging, cutting and cleaning - Road cleaning machines are used to keep roads, pavements and other hard surfaces clean and free from debris. Doing so helps in reducing the number of accidents. The road cleaning machines typically use portable air compressors.
- Tunnel digging – During the process of digging a tunnel the ground exerts hydrostatic pressure which is opposed by the compressed air pressure at the cutter-head. Easy manoeuvrability offered by ELGi portable screw air compressor makes it best suited for this process.
