3.2.13 Main Function [of a Component] ToC Previous Next

The actual main function of Components is not specified in this specification. The following examples of Main Functions do not imply the actual function of the referenced Component.

EXAMPLE 1 Charging system: to keep pressure upstream above a set minimum pressure or within a set pressure range

EXAMPLE 2 Compressor: to deliver compressed air into the piping with an expected volume flow and at an expected pressure

EXAMPLE 3 Condensate drain: to remove condensate from the compressed air piping or a condensate storage to outside the pressure system

EXAMPLE 4 Condensate separator: to separate the hydrocarbon contents from the condensate to create a clean condensate that can easily be disposed of

EXAMPLE 5 Converter: to eliminates hydrocarbons from the compressed air stream to create class 1 (and better) oil free air

EXAMPLE 6 Cooling system: to reduce the compressed air temperature to a desired level

EXAMPLE 7 Dryer: to remove moisture from compressed air and dry compressed air to a pressure dew point below the required value

EXAMPLE 8 Filter: to remove particles and aerosols from the compressed air flow

EXAMPLE 9 Heat recovery system: Main function: to heat up a material or substance flow by using the heat generated by the compressed air system

EXAMPLE 10 Receiver: to store compressed air and provide a buffer

EXAMPLE 11 Sensor: to measure specific parameters in the compressed air system and provide the data
