Atlas Copco Air Receivers

The Atlas Copco range of air receivers are available with volumes ranging from 120 litres to 10,000 litres and are certified to European specifications. The range includes both horizontally (LH) and vertically mounted (LV) receivers with maximum pressures ranging from 11 to 21 bar.

Scope of Supply

  • Horizontal or vertical air receivers
  • 120 – 10,000 litre capacity
  • -10 to 50 deg.C operating temperature
  • High quality galvanised inside and out
  • Safety valve, manometer and drain valve supplied 

Working Principle

The receivers provide a store of compressed air for occasions where demand is higher than the supply from the compressor, this smooths out the delivery of air from the system. The air receiver may provide cooling to the air and as such remove water and oil from the system through condensation which can be evacuated.

  • No more air pressure variation in the air net
  • Stores compressed air for peak use
  • Minimised loading and unloading of compressed air
  • Cools the air and collects residual condensate and oil droplets

Control and Monitoring

Safety valve and drain valve provide ease of evacuating air and water/oil from the receiver while pressure can be monitored by means of the supplied manometer.
