FABRICATION OF UNCONVENTIONAL COMPRESSOR FOR HEAVY TRUCK
Today in various automobile industries they prefer unconventional parts to improve their productivity.
Now they use unconventional air compressor in heavy vehicle such as tippers and trucks. Unlike standard air compressor it doesn’t have crank shaft and connecting rod. It resembles the cycle foot pump. Operation is simple which indeed serve the purpose fruitfully.
When vehicle travels on the road, vibration is created due to bumpy impact, imbalance tire wheel assembly or related to the mechanical condition of the vehicle. These vibration created is purely a force vibration which is an unwanted energy. We make use of these as prime mover to our system. Compressed air produced by operation of this system is mainly used for operation of pneumatic braking system, horn, air intake system.
Besides above stated uses, it plays important role for hydraulic operated automobiles as it has no air producing system. In this case we are able to achieve whatever the pneumatic operation can be performed.
Here main advantage is that in heavy vehicle damper requirement is neglected. Though there will be damper attached during manufacture but it can be taken out as and when the unconventional air compressor is implemented.
It is economical to use this unconventional air compressor in heavy vehicle. It can also helps in reduction of air pollution.
