Choosing the correct size of air receiver

Size is determined by the capacity of the compressor and the compressed air consumption profile. Comprag recommends dimensioning your air receiver according to the following table:

Compressor power [kW] Air receiver capacity [l]
7,5-11 270
15-22 500
Over 30 900 or larger

Air receivers are used for the storage of compressed air. For best results, air collectors should be installed after cyclone separators and other air preparation equipment. Condensate traps must be used to prevent the accumulation of condensation which can cause corrosion of the housing.


  • Reduced occurrence of regime change reduces wear of the compressor screw block, electric motor and drive system.
  • Significant energy savings. The greatest amount of energy is consumed by frequent regime changes of the compressor.
  • The large volume of compressed air stored in Air Receivers RV acts as a buffer against pressure fluctuations induced by increasing the number of consumers.
  • Separation of condensate. A large surface area of the air receiver helps cool the compressed air and condenses the vapor in the air.

Suitable for use in compressed air lines with capacity up to 30 m3/min

For safe operation of air receivers it is necessary to use an appropriate safety valve which is adapted to the compressor used and the pressure of the air line. Comprag delivers SV safety valves for the entire compressor programme.
