Piston compressors are a type of driven positive displacement machines, which transfer energy from the compressor to the fluid via a variable volume. The MT 141 device is an air-cooled piston compressor that sucks in ambient air and from this generates compressed air.
The MT 141 assembly kit is part of the GUNT Practice Line for assembly, maintenance and repair, which is designed for training at vocational schools and company training centres. The close link between theory and practice-based learning content is evident. The assembly and disassembly processes can easily be completed within standard lesson times. Only basic tools, all supplied with the kit, are required for assembly. The fit seats of the compressor are designed so that the entire assembly can be carried out by hand.
The contemporary didactic multimedia teaching materials provide extensive technical information as a basis for lesson design. The core element of the teaching materials is a complete set of drawings in file format with parts lists, individual part designations, exploded view and assembly drawings and 3D drawings. All drawings are to standard and dimensioned in accordance with production requirements. The set of drawings consists of DXF, STEP and PDF files. The assembly videos are also very useful. All terms are bilingual in German and English. The files are also available free of charge online in the GUNT Media Center.
The disassembled piston compressor with a set of small parts and 4 assembly devices is delivered in a stable storage system with foam inlay. The MT 120.02 Transport roller or the MT 120.01 Trolley are suitable for convenient transport of the assembly exercise. Using the optionally available MT 140.01 unit, the assembled compressor can be subjected to a functional test.
