Compressors are at the core of compressed air generator plants. These plants are used where compressed air is used as a source of energy. Compressed air is often used instead of electrical energy, particularly in workplaces where there is a risk of explosion of combustible gases. The heat generated by compression is dissipated by cooling fins. The compressor is driven by a V-belt.
The mobile workstation MT 140 forms part of the GUNT-Practice Line for assembly, maintenance and repair designed for training at technical colleges and in company training centres. The station includes everything required to provide students with an introduction to a wide range of demanding assembly projects. A disassembled compressor is contained in the drawers of the trolley cabinet which also holds the tools and assembly aids, small parts and gaskets required for assembly. A second fully functional compressor, permanently mounted to the workbench, can be used for demonstration purposes. This enables components to be compared directly with the complete system.
Large-format drawings suitable for workshop practice can be attached to the display board at the rear of the trolley. All steps involved can be demonstrated to, and then performed by, the students themselves. The comprehensive and clearly structured instructional material, including a set of drawings, pdf files, and assembly videos, sets out the individual steps in detail. It also provides additional information on the areas of application, mode of operation and design of the assemblies.
The fully assembled compressor can be tested for functionality using the optionally available MT 140.01.
