Industrial Air Compressor Parts and Their Upkeep
January 11, 2017

It takes a great deal to get the quality of output you demand from your industrial air compressor machine. Acquiring new machinery can be expensive, so preventive care and maintenance of your existing compressor will go a long way in ensuring that you get the best value for your time and money. A well maintained compressor is also cheap and easy to operate and manage without compromising on the performance and quality of outcome. The below tenets will save you time and money when it comes to the maintenance of your industrial air compressor parts.

The best practices for good industrial air compressor parts upkeep:

Tip 1: Clean the compressor regularly

Regular cleaning of the compressor’s filters, inlet vents, hoses, fuel tank and heat exchangers is a great advantage when it comes to giving your compressor a fresh breath. Cleaning these parts regularly protects them from buildup, which may accumulate on the surfaces leading to blockages and reduced efficiency.

Tip 2: Check and change the air filters, separator element and oil regularly

Air filters and the separator element are likely to accumulate dirt due to the pressure from the external environment. Oil being used in the compressor may also be contaminated in the normal course of the machine’s service life. Regular checks and replacement of these three restore the performance of your compressor, while ensuring that the industrial air compressor parts remain protected from the wear and tear that comes with regular use.

Tip 3: Regularly tighten loose fasteners

Bolts, nuts and screws on an air compressor may get loose over time due to the rhythmic vibration of the compressor during its normal use. Regularly tightening any loose fasteners ensures that the compressor remains steadily held on the frame, reducing the number of potential downtimes associated with low performance and mechanical breakdown.
