3 Phase Compressors

If you are looking for an air compressor for heavy duty tasks, then it’s likely you’ll need a three phase compressor! A 3 phase compressor runs from a 415v 3 phase power supply as opposed to the conventional 230v.  Usually used in commercial and industrial settings, we stock a range of three phase compressors both online and in our Surrey based shop.

Unleash the Power for Heavy Duty Applications

Three phase air compressors are built for tough tasks. Unlike their single phase counterparts, three phase air compressors draw strength from a three wire connection, enabling them to generate significantly more power. This translates to higher air output, faster pressure build-up, and the ability to handle heavy duty applications with ease. Think powering pneumatic tools in manufacturing plants, inflating massive tyres, or sandblasting large surfaces – these compressors conquer challenges where others falter.

3 Phase Air Compressor FAQ

More often than not, a three phase compressor is an air compressor which provides more than 3HP (horsepower). There are, however, a few exceptions to the rule.

As mentioned previously, three phase compressors need a 415v three phase power supply rather than the standard 230v.

The name “3 phase compressor” might sound technical, but it actually tells you a lot about this workhorse of the industrial world. Unlike standard home plugs, these compressors utilise three separate electrical phases, unlocking unique advantages.

Think of it like a three-lane road: Each phase acts like a dedicated lane, ensuring a steady flow of electricity to the compressor’s motor. This eliminates the brief power drops which can be experienced with single phase compressors, and thus,  prevents disruptions and allows for a smoother, more consistent operation.

Here are a few of the benefits associated with three phase:

  • Boosted Power: Three-phase compressors can handle significantly higher loads compared to their single phase counterparts. Perfect for powering demanding applications like sandblasting or operating multiple pneumatic tools simultaneously.
  • Enhanced Reliability: The continuous power flow minimises stress on the motor, leading to increased durability and longer lifespan. This translates to less downtime and maintenance, keeping your operations running smoothly.
  • Efficiency Gains: The optimised design and smooth power delivery often result in lower energy consumption. This translates to cost savings on your electricity bills and a more environmentally friendly operation.
