Dangerous Compression Effects

Compressed air is a valuable medium in every company. However, it is generally recognised that safety must be maintained. The user is safe at the points of reception. Screw compressors are nowadays used to ensure safe operation.

Let’s assume that the drive belt will break, parts of which would hit the operating personnel. If there were no cover, the operator would have been injured.

This is not an accident of too great importance. Imagine what could happen to you if you were next to the compressor during the following failure?
