Familiarise with High Pressure Terminology
Compressor Dictionary – V
The valves control the airflow in and out of the cylinders of the individual compressor stages. Therefore these valves are referred to as pull and push valves, or inlet and outlet valves.
The plate valves open and close automatically once the required pressure differential is reached.
The velocity of the airflow should not exceed 60 m/s for intake valves and 40 m/s for outlet valves. The lift of the valves has been adjusted to match the compressor' rounds per minute.
For over 20 years, BAUER KOMPRESSOREN employs the same valve system, which has been regularly updated in line with technological progress. The reliability of BAUER compressors is guaranteed. Critical criteria such as the material composition, hardness and elasticity are thoroughly checked.
