When installing the compressed air piping in the air compressor system, it is crucial to pay attention to certain factors to ensure proper operation and longevity of the air compressor.

One important consideration is the installation of a storage tank as a buffer if the system has large and fluctuating air consumption. This tank should have a capacity greater than or equal to 20% of the maximum instantaneous air consumption, reducing the frequency of compressor unit loading and unloading and improving operational reliability.

It is also essential to maintain an appropriate flow rate in the delivery pipe, ensuring that it is less than 15m/sec to avoid excessive pressure drop. To minimize pressure loss, it is advisable to minimize the use of elbows and valves in the compressed air piping.

An ideal compressed air piping system should have a main line that runs throughout the entire facility, allowing easy access to compressed air from any location. This design helps reduce pressure drop in branch lines with sudden increases in gas consumption.

Additionally, providing appropriate valves on the main line facilitates maintenance and shutoff. Finally, when piping the main line, it is important to ensure a slight inclination of 1° to 2° to facilitate the discharge of condensate from the pipe.
