USE OF AIR COMPRESSOR IN CONSTRUCTION
With about $10 trillion spent on construction-related goods and services every year, the construction sector is one of the largest in the world economy. Portable / Towable air compressors can be easily spotted on many construction spots worldwide as they are instrumental due to their high output and efficiency. Heavy-duty portable air compressors are most robust and well-suited to the unique needs of road building, restoration work, civil engineering, and various other construction applications. They are designed to handle harsh site conditions and hard-to-reach site locations, delivering consistent performance. Compressed air in construction is also used to power tools on the site, such as power hammers, drills, saws, wrenches, nail guns, and numerous other pneumatic tools. One of the significant advantages of using an air compressor on a construction site is the noise-free operation and lucid maintenance.
APPLICATIONS OF COMPRESSED AIR IN CONSTRUCTION
Compressed air is an excellent energy source for power tools such as drills, jackhammers, impact wrenches, grinders, sanders, nail guns, and other vital construction equipment. The main advantage of using air compressors to power these tools is that they can single-handedly power them as needed.
Lifting and handling operation
Lifting operations can be carried out both manually and using lifting equipment. Lifting equipment and handling devices use a portable screw air compressor, ensuring reliable and safe lifting and lowering the load.
Road digging, cutting, and cleaning
Road cleaning machines keep roads, pavements, and other hard surfaces clean and free from debris. Doing so helps in reducing the number of accidents. The road cleaning machines typically use portable air compressors.
The ground exerts hydrostatic pressure during the process of digging a tunnel. This pressure is opposed by the compressed air pressure at the cutter-head. Easy maneuverability offered by the ELGi portable screw air compressor makes it best suited for this process.
