The apparatus consists of a single stage Air Compressor which is driven by an induction motor. It sucks air from inlet air tank through an orifice and air filter. Compressed air is stored in the air receiver. Delivery pressure gauge and temperature sensors are fitted. Energy meter is fitted to measure input to motor. This measurement equipment is provided to perform.
