How can we determine the size/capacity of an air receiver for a reciprocating air compressor? What are the factors that affect the capacity of receiver?
Have an insight or suggestion?

Re: Air receiver size for reciprocating air compressor28 August 2007 at 1:29pmThe sizing for a reciprocating receiver is too complex to answer here. Refer a reference such as the Compress Red Air and Gas Data Book. Items that are needed are the duty in time of the redeliver, as well as the compressor. The compressor system operating pressures are also needed.
