Air compressor

fully automatic 5 gallon blowing machine (18)

The PET air compressor is the heart of the bottle blowing machine’s air supply system.

It’s a gadget that transforms a motor’s mechanical energy into gas pressure energy. It’s a one-of-a-kind air pressure generator for the bottle blowing machine.


Blowing air compressors are mostly utilized in the iBottling blow molding machine’s support industries.

Blowing air compressor can be divided into low pressure blow molding machine (15-25bar), medium pressure blow molding machine (25-35bar), high pressure blow molding machine (35-40bar) according to the air pressure.

According to their working principles, blowing air compressors are classified as piston compressors, screw compressors, or centrifugal compressors.

A positive displacement compressor’s working principle

To compress the gas volume to increase the density of gas molecules per unit volume, thereby generating higher compressed air pressure.

The working principle of screw compressor is twin screw compression.

The kinetic energy of the gas in the cavity of the twin-screw compressor is converted into pressure energy, which increases the pressure of the compressed air.

Under the high-speed centrifugal condition, the centrifugal compressor employs the high-speed rotation of the impeller to convert gas into kinetic energy, resulting in compressed air pressure.

Choose right model

First, select the type of air compressor according to the characteristics of the air compressor.

According to the working pressure and flow parameters, determine the output pressure PC and suction flow QC of the air compressor. Finally, the air compressor model was selected.

The working pressure and flow rate of the pneumatic system are the most important factors in selecting an air compressor.

The air source’s working pressure should be about 20% higher than the pneumatic system’s maximum working pressure.

Because we have to consider the loss along the way and the local loss of the gas supply pipeline.

If the working pressure requirement of some parts of the system is low, the pressure reducing valve can be used to supply air.

The rated exhaust pressure of the air compressor is divided into

Low pressure (0.7~1.0MPa),

Medium pressure (1.0~10MPa),

High pressure (10~100MPa)

And ultra-high pressure (above 100MPa),

Can be selected according to actual needs.


Bottle blowing machine water chiller

fully automatic 5 gallon blowing machine (18)

Blow molding machines, hollow molding machines, injection blow molding machines, and plastic processing machinery mold cooling all use blow mold water chillers.

It can significantly improve the surface finish of plastic products as well as reduce surface marks and internal stress.

The product does not shrink or deform, and it helps to reduce the number of defective products.

Demoulding plastic products is easy with this tool, and it speeds up product shaping. Shortens the injection molding cycle and increases the bottle blowing machine’s production efficiency significantly.


The protection system of the 19L automatic blow molding machine water chiller includes:

  • Compressor delay start protector,
  • Overload protector,
  • High and low voltage protector,
  • Temperature control switch,
  • Antifreeze switch,
  • Fuse plug,
  • Electronic time protection safety valve,
  • Compressor overheat protector,
  • The compressor frequently starts the protector
  • And abnormal indicator,

Ensure the regular operation of the unit.


Controls are fully automated and have an ergonomic panel.

The use of high-efficiency heat transfer heat exchangers has a low cooling loss, is easy to return oil, and the heat transfer tube will not freeze and crack; 

Imported high-performance compressors have a high EER value, low noise, and stable operation.


Air dryer

fully automatic 5 gallon blowing machine (18)

The air dryer is a kind of equipment that uses the working principle of cooling and condensation to dry compressed air.

The refrigeration dryer operates on the cooling and condensation principle. A heat exchange system, a refrigeration system, and an electrical control system are the three main components.


The compressed air first passes through the pre-cooler, which removes some of the heat energy through air-air or air-water heat exchange.

After that, the cold and hot air exchanger is used. Heat is exchanged with cold air from the evaporator that has been cooled to the pressure dew point. The compressed air’s temperature is lowered even more.

After that, the compressed air enters the evaporator to exchange heat with the refrigerant. The compressed air temperature drops to 0-8°C.

The water in the air will precipitate at this temperature; after being separated by a gas-water separator, it will be discharged through an automatic drain.

For heat exchange, dry low-temperature air enters the cold and hot air exchanger, and is then output once the temperature has risen.


A microcomputer control system with temperature import and export, dew point temperature display, pressure display, fault alarm, and other capabilities is available as an option. It can also do online centralized computer control.


The refrigeration compressor was chosen among TECUMSEH, BRISTOL, MANEURCP, and other international brands for its reliable operation, low noise, energy efficiency, and extended service life.


The refrigeration compressor was chosen among TECUMSEH, BRISTOL, MANEURCP, and other international brands for its reliable operation, low noise, energy efficiency, and extended service life.


Internal and external multi-fin exchange tubes are used in the pre-cooler.

The efficiency has enhanced by over thrice.

Furthermore, power usage can be reduced by more than 60%.

The big evaporator design ensures a consistent dew point in a variety of climes.

To separate and remove the condensed water, the gas-water separator uses a double separation design.


air filter

fully automatic 5 gallon blowing machine (18)

The air filter’s job is to remove liquid water and liquid oil droplets from compressed air while also filtering out dust and solid contaminants. Despite this, it is unable to remove the gaseous water and oil.


In general, hazardous chemicals such as dust, rust, and moisture can be found in the air.

The compressed air in the first filter device will coalesce, causing some particles to condense and stick to the filter.

After a long period of condensation, these microscopic particles will transform into larger water droplets.

The flow rate of compressed air will naturally slow when it enters the separation chamber.

Particles going through the previous channel will condense on the water trap once more.

The non-condensed water contains contaminants and will flow along the device’s bottom.

The water will be discharged via the electric drain gate as soon as it reaches the drainage equipment.

After filtration, you’ll get dust-free, oil-free, and water-free compressed air that’s relatively dry and clean.

Pneumatic equipment can be successfully extended by using clean air.


air storage tank

fully automatic 5 gallon blowing machine (18)

A compressed air storage tank is another name for an air compressor storage tank.

It’s a pressure vessel that’s designed to hold compressed air.

The function is utilized for air storage and buffering.

Allow pressurized air to settle in the air storage tank instead of starting air compressors frequently.

Which is better for water removal and pollutant abatement.

It is mostly used in conjunction with air compressors, chilled dryers, filters, and other equipment to provide power to a compressed air station for industrial output.
