3 FUNCTIONS OF AN AIR SERVICE UNIT (FRL)

How to achieve ultimate pneumatic tool performance by optimizing air line installation

FRLs – Filters, Regulators and Lubricators – guarantee the efficiency and durability of pneumatic tools. Including an FRL in your air system is vital to running an efficient air line set-up and key to achieving a good return on investment. Adding an FRL in close proximity to the power tool will ensure the required airflow pressure, as well as good air quality by reducing the risk of moisture and dust in the air line. The FRL also helps maintain your air line by providing lubrication.

How to get the most out of your working tool?

Handheld breakers and drills are core equipment in various construction tasks. While having the right equipment is a good starting point, several factors can help you get more out of them to optimize performance, improve productivity, and extend your handheld tool’s life. One of them is selecting the right working tool based on your job.

Know your tools
There is no one-choice-fits-all solution when it comes to working tools. What works well when breaking through a surface might not be the best choice for working on an open edge. That is why it’s vital to know the options available and which application they are designed for.

The most common types of working tools are moil points and narrow chisels, but other application-specific alternatives are also available.

Moil point

Designed for breaking materials, including concrete, asphalt, bricks, the moil point is the tool for penetrating a hard surface when there is no open edge to position the tool in.

Narrow chisel

Compared to the moil point, the narrow chisel is a better tool for breaking and cutting when there is an open surface or an edge available. It gives you better control over the direction of the split and is less likely to get stuck in the material you are breaking.

Wide chisel

A wide chisel is a useful tool when you want to achieve line contact instead of point contact. It is well suited for use in cutting applications, for example, when cutting thin concrete slabs and asphalt, when the blade's depth is greater than the thickness of the material.

Asphalt cutter

Developed explicitly for cutting hot asphalt, the tool features a thin blade to ensure a clean cut on freshly rolled asphalt. The tool is available with two options: a standard straight edge or a curved edge that delivers quicker pe*******on and reduced vibration. It is self-sharpening, and the low resistance of the thin blade means that it cuts through material very quickly, providing an exceptionally clean edge.

Digging chisel

These are the ideal working tools when ground conditions are challenging, for example, when there is a high concentration of aggregates in the material. The blade is thicker and deeper than in other types of chisels. However, at 3”, it is still narrow enough to enable the blow energy from the breaker to be targeted at a smaller mass, helping deliver more power per square centimeter for optimal impact.

Ground rod driver

Ideal when working with long electrical rods, the cup-formed driver holds the end of the ground rod in place while the impact from the paving breaker drives it into the ground. It is designed to withstand metal to metal contact and features inbuilt resistance to stress fractures.

Tamping pad

A tamping pad is the perfect tool for working on corners and small areas of asphalt and trenches, for example, when carrying out temporary refills. It is available in different sizes featuring both square and round profiles and can be easily operated by one person.

Use them right

Even with the correct working tool, some steps can help improve performance even further. From maintenance to compressor settings, various factors can have a significant effect on the progress of your task and the productivity of your tool during its lifetime.

Focus on capacity and pressure

Before commencing work, you should always check that you have the correct compressor capacity and set the pressure correctly. The handheld pneumatic tools are designed to run at 6-7 bar.

Regular maintenance

Do not neglect tool maintenance, as it will affect the speed and quality of work. Remember to check lubrication at regular intervals and carry out maintenance when required. The best synthetic lubricants, such as CP Airolene Plus Tool Oil, are specially developed for use in breakers and hammers, preventing rust and ice build-up for smooth operation in all environments.

Proper storage

When the job is done, clean your tool properly and store your tool in the right position, upright in a stand or stored horizontally on a rack. Drain the water, make sure there is no moisture left and lubricate the tool when it is going to be stored for a longer time.

When stored overnight, compressors and hoses can accumulate water due to condensation. Make sure to flush the water before connecting the hose to your handheld tool.

Check for damage

Damage attention points handheld working tools
The impact area of the working tool is where any damage is likely to occur. Selecting the correct working tool for the application will minimize the risk of breakages. Still, it is best practice to inspect the area regularly and change the working tool when the wear is at its maximum. This will extend your tool’s working life.

Consider the wear limit

Use the measuring gauges to ensure you keep the tool within the wear limit. To further enhance efficiency and optimize precision, keep the chisel clean and sharp at all times.

Eliminate dust

Ensure to eliminate dust in the hose couplings, when connecting the hoses. Clean the chisel and striking surface before inserting the tool. This will avoid spoiling the piston.

Use a dust collector

Use a dust collector to keep the site dust-free to enhance visibility during critical tasks and improve health and safety.

[10/19/20]   COMPRESSOR SIZING

Choosing the wrong air compressor for your facility can lead to problems with production and or increased costs due to wasted energy.
What amount of pressure do I need?
what type of compressor do I need?

Understanding the flow and pressure requirements for your facility is key when choosing an air compressor. Pressure and flow are two very common terms used when discussing compressed air systems.

Pressure can be measured in pounds per square inch (psi), or bar (metric measure of pressure). To think of this in simpler terms, pressure refers to the amount of force needed to perform certain amount of work at any given point in time.

What is the right air flow for my compressor?

Flow, also referred to as free air delivery (FAD) can be measured in cubic feet per minute (cfm), liters per second (l/s) or cubic meters per hour (m3/h) depending on your geographical location. In simpler terms, flow is the ability of the compressor to continue performing a task within an acceptable time frame. The amount of flow required is determined by the length of time needed to complete a given task. If the flow is insufficient, the process will require frequent breaks while the compressor builds up pressure in the reserve tank, therefore indicating that the compressor might be undersized.

Ultimately, when you are looking to supply enough compressed air for a given application, it is important to consider the amount of compressed air flow (CFM) needed at a specific pressure (PSI) required for the process to work properly.

One of the ways to find out the total flow needed is to contact the manufacturer of the equipment that uses compressed air and request data sheets with desired information. However, the best way to measure accurate flow, is to perform a “compressed air audit”, which can be done by a compressed air sales professional. It is important to keep in mind that rotary screw air compressors tend to put out more flow per kW or HP than piston compressors.

To summarize, pressure (PSI) is determined by the job you are performing, while flow (CFM) will require the understanding of how frequently the job has to be done, or how many jobs you are performing at the same time. It is important to understand that under sizing a compressor will result in pressure drops and inability to complete a task, while oversizing the unit can lead to future mechanical problems and potential failure of the compressor. If you are unsure on how to size your new compressor for existing or new application, always contact a compressed air sales professional for an audit.
