The core functions of compressed air system in railway include trains breaks systems, suspensions, doors and various other equipment. AFE offers a variety of reliable solutions for trouble-free operations.

Braking system: An air compressor unit mainly includes drive motor, air compressor, air dryer, pressure controller, etc.

Air compressor: The compressed air used in the braking system of urban rail vehicles and some other subsystems is produced by the air compressor unit. The motor directly drives the air compressor through the coupling. At present, there are mainly two types of piston air compressors and screw air compressors used in urban rail vehicles.

The ship’s compressed air system provides compressed air for generators, main engine start-up, submarine door debris removal, and other places on-board that need compressed air.

In many semiconductor and electronics industries, compressed air is often used in sensitive high-tech equipment to process and manufacture electronic components. Contamination of compressed air can lead to costly complications.

As an important energy source for industrial products, compressed air has a wide range of applications in various manufacturing industries and is known today as the "Fourth Utility" in the manufacturing industry.

Before entering the co-generators or distribution lines, biogas must be appropriately dried and filtered to maximise the energy yield from the biogas, as well as to protect the system from corrosion. That’s where AFE’s compressed air purification products come in.
