Compressor tripping refers to the disconnection of the compressor overload protector, which results in the shutdown of the compressor.It is usually caused by the following 5 causes
Because in screw air compressor , the minimum pressure valve fault or the blockage of relief system often occurs, which results in the compressor shutdown, the pressure still exists in the system
The excessive resistance of the nose will cause the start-up current of the compressor to be too large, that is, the compressor overload, which will lead to the tripping of the air switch.It is caused by the following 3 reasons:
The most direct and effective way to judge whether it is an electrical or mechanical fault is to separate the motor from the nose, that is, to remove the coupling/belt. Compressor control system with protective devices, such as no separation of protective devices, start compressor, motor immediately running, the control panel will show motor current about 40A, running 10 seconds after showing abnormal current, motor automatically stop running, because when detected current is greater than 10% of the maximum current or less than 90% of the minimum current, the protection unit will automatically shut down. In this way, it will be impossible to judge the cause of the unit failure. When the protection is switched off, the motor will run continuously for mechanical reasons; on the contrary, the same tripping phenomenon will occur.
The unloading valve is an important part of screw compressor. Its main function is to control the load and unload of the unit, that is, to control the air intake of the compressor.
There is a temperature-sensing probe on the sliding spool of the temperature-controlled bypass valve, which controls the opening and closing of the spool and judges that the opening temperature of the temperature-controlled bypass valve is within 70 (+10). After long-term use, the efficiency of the probe decreases and it can not operate at the normal temperature point, so that the hot lubricating oil from the air compressor body can not be directly returned to the air compressor body through the cooling of the oil cooler, making the air compressor temperature lower. It can not be effectively controlled.
Check the Purity and Leakage of lubricating oil。Or change the lubricate oil
In addition, the characteristics of high temperature jump caused by air cooler, water cooler, three filters and other faults are more obvious, so it is no longer mentioned. In a word, there are many reasons for the compressor to jump, and there are many causes. Only when we have a comprehensive understanding of the compressor operation principle and the function of components, can we prevent the compressor from jumping in the future
