ilmanottopää, imupää
Explanation:
paineilmapumpun ts. kompressorin se osa, josta ilma imetään sisään kompressoitavaksi öljyn kanssa (rotary compressors, monia muunkintyyppisiä kompressoreita on olemassa; rotary compressors ovat paljon teollisuuden käytössä)
"During normal operation of an oil lubricated rotary screw compressor (fig. RS-1.4), atmospheric air is drawn into the intake air filter due to the rotation of the rotors in the airend. Air enters the airend where it is mixed with lubricating oil. The air/oil mixture is compressed, exits the airend and flows into the oil separator tank. The oil separator tank acts as a reservoir for the oil, allows for the primary separation of the air from the oil, and houses the air/oil separator element. The air/oil separator reduces the oil content of the air to approximately 5 ppm by weight. Compressed air then flows into the aftercooler where the temperature is reduced from approximately 200ºF (93ºC) to 15ºF (-9ºC) to 25ºF (-4ºC) above the cooling medium temperature. The cooled air then enters the moisture separator where the condensed moisture is separated from the air. Compressed air then exits the compressor and the drain valve removes condensed moisture. "
