Things you need to know before calculating volume of air 

What is air Receiver ?

Air receiver is a container designed to hold gases or Air at a pressure substantially different from the ambient pressure.

Air receiver/Air Tank is usually calculated in Liters or in gallons


What is Air Pressure ?

An air compressor converts power into potential energy stored in pressurized air (i.e., compressed air). An air compressor forces more and more air into a storage tank, increasing the pressure. When tank pressure reaches its engineered upper limit, the air compressor shuts off.

Air Compressor is usually measured in KG sq/cm or Bar,in PSI or in MPA

Measure equipment isolated o white backg

Pressure Gauge 

What is filling time of air compressor

Filling time of air compressor is how much time air compressor is taking to fill the Air up-to the maximum design pressure

All you need to do is start filling the empty compressor i.e from 0 kg²/cm to design pressure and record the time in mins. For instance, if filling time is 200 sec than the mins will be 3.3
