Factors Effecting Air Compressor Tenders
Some of the factors that have major bearing on air compressor tenders are as follows.
- Ratings of the compressors.
- Tank capacity of air compressors.
- Horsepower of the air compressors.
All the above three factors are ultimate deciding elements for the procurer of air compressors as well as for the bidders on the tenders.
Types of Air Compressor Tenders
Types of tenders for procurement of air compressors vary according to the types of compressors used. Broadly speaking there are three types of tenders for air compressors.
- Gas air compressors.
- Electric air compressors.
- Reciprocating air compressors.
Use of Air Compressors in the Industries
Gas air compressors are used by industries for well ventilated and open spaces. These are also the most expensive among all types of air compressors. Electric compressors are good for on the site medical facilities. It is also good for such commercial users that wish to have air compressors in stationary environment. Least expensive among the three is the reciprocating air compressors. However, this type of compressors is not used for long term in industrial circles but for short term uses they could be very useful. Thus the business requirements for air compressors are as follows –
- Low cost reciprocating compressors are used in industries for intermittent purposes.
- Electrical air compressors are required for stationery uses.
- Gas compressors are used for commercial uses.
Portable Air Compressor Use
In industrial circles the requirements of portable air compressors are growing day by day. That is why, besides the regular air compressors, they offer quite substantial business opportunities for any entrepreneur, especially small and medium enterprises.
Requirements for Bidders
Since all types of air compressors are in substantial demand in the market, the bidders conversant with all types of compressors including the portable one will have the best chance of winning air compressor tenders. Small industries may require single stage compressors for pressure that is in the range of 70 psig to 100 psig. Larger enterprises will usually procure two stage compressors that generate pressure in the range of 100-250 psig.
In industrial circles air compressors have become as important as water, electricity and fuel. Scope of compressors are especially great in automation and assembly, plant maintenance, chemical industries, aircraft, beverages, agriculture, cement, plastics, construction, hospitals, power plants, sewerage plants and various others.
