VARIABLE SPEED SINGLE STAGE RECIPROCATING AIR COMPRESSOR TEST RIG

RANGE OF EXPERIMENTS TO BE CARRIED OUT:
1. To study all components/Accessories used in Reciprocating Air Compressor.
2. To study & determine Isothermal Work, Isentropic Work, Actual Work Volumetric Efficiency, Isothermal Efficiency,
Isentropic Efficiency & Free Air Delivery at different delivery pressure.
3. To Plot Volumetric Efficiency/Isothermal Efficiency
Isentropic Efficiency against Delivery Pressure & comment on the nature of the plot.
4. The experiments can be conducted at various speed & calculation can be made accordingly.

TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION :
The test rig consists of Air Compressor with an air suction tank, is fitted with an
orifice at one end & other end connected to cylinder. The orifice pressure
tapping is connected to one limb of U -Tube manometer on panel.
Thermocouple T1, T2, T3 reads temperature at inlet ( T1 ) outlet Temperature ( T2
) & ( T3 ) records temperature of air in receiver.
Energy meter is used to record the power input to motor & in turn the work
required for compression. The control panel houses starter for motor, main
switch, Temperature Indicator .. Speed of compressor is varied by using
reduction pulley.
