SERVICE OVERVIEW

Compressed Air Service

Preventive Maintenance is one of the very best ways to increase your assets’ life expectancy, including your air compressors. Keeping them well-lubricated, changing their filters and fixing minor problems as needed can help your systems run smoothly for a long time.

Most manufacturers recommend servicing an air compressor every year or every 2,000 hours whichever is the shorter. 2000 hours is effectively single shift operation 52 weeks a year.

Myth Busters

Fact:
When properly applied, compressed air can be the best choice. It is a safe, clean source of power that is easy to use and maintain

Fact:
Like the other power sources (electric, battery, natural gas, steam, and hydraulic), compressed air can be costly. Compressed air cost can be minimized through proper application, installation, and maintenance

Fact:
This is generally not true. Poor system design or lack of basic maintenance can result in contaminated air at point of use.

This is an unsafe practice. Cleaning a work area using compressed air could result in serious injury as a result of particulate striking or entering the eyes, ears or skin. A safer alternative is to use a vacuum, mop, or broom to remove dirt and debris.

Fact:
Inherent to their design, variable speed drive compressors have an optimum tip speed range where they operate most efficiently. If the compressor load requirements fall outside of this range, other control options may provide the most efficient solution. The compressor provider will need to consider the numerous application requirements in order to recommend the most efficient compressed air solution for the job.

No, they are not the same. When looking at air compressor fluids, the term “synthetic” is often used to describe the base stock. Since “synthetic” simply means that the fluid is not a hydrocarbon base stock, it encompasses many different base stocks which offer dramatically different performance. The real question is what is the synthetic base stock, Polyglycol (PAG), Diester, POE? Once you determine the base stock you can evaluate its advantages and disadvantages.

Maintenance kits and manufacturer proprietary replacement parts and lubricants offer the best overall performance. They are designed to maintain unit efficiency and reliability. Generic parts increase liability, decrease performance, and may void manufacturer warranties. Considering form, fit, and functions; generic, will-fit parts often fall short of achieving the function of a factory, OEM part

All standard dryers are designed for indoor installation. However, many are often installed outside, with or without being installed under a roof. Outside installation under a roof is acceptable provided there is protection from freezing, snow, blowing rain, and the roof height is sufficient to prevent hot air recirculation. Outside installation of standard dryers with no roof is not recommended.

In the case where outside installation without a roof is a necessity, request an outdoor modification package to include freeze protection, UV protection, and NEMA 4 components throughout. A NEMA 4 electrical enclosure alone is not sufficient for an outdoor installation without a roof

Fact:
Compressed air filters are capable of removing bulk liquid water and some water aerosol from compressed air. Compressed air filters are not capable of reducing the level of moisture vapor in compressed air or reducing the pressure dew point of compressed air
