Maintain Now, Save Forever

Follow These Maintenance Practices to Realize Savings & Prolong Air Compressor Life

Get in a Routine. As with exercise, a regular, systematic and well-documented compressor maintenance routine is thes tarting point to success. Use of manufacturer-supplied inspection and maintenance documents make it easy to begin. If you can get and keep a routine, bottom-line savings will result. And, this documentation will help insure compliance with conditions for any extended warranty you have on the equipment.

Consider a Service Agreement.If maintenance time and personnel are lean, outsource compressor maintenance to your local air compressor distributor. The money spent here will be repaid in reduced downtime, lower repair costs and electrical savings. Top flight distributors have factory trained technicians ready to handle the basics while also identifying significant savings opportunities in the system.

Set a baseline or benchmark of key system parameters.Benchmarking is an excellentway to identify if a system isbeing well-maintained and isoperating properly. To benchmarkyour system measurements,record power, pressure, flow andtemperature at a given point andthen track these measurementsover time. When power useincreases for a given flow andpressure, the system efficiency ison a downhill slide. Attending tokey maintenance issues will saveyou money and provide a betterend product to your customer.

Find all filters. Many customers have a variety of pre and after-filters in a system that go unnoticed and under-serviced.The result is dirty filter elements that restrict compressed airflow and increase your energy costs. This also leads to increased contamination downstream. Both consequences are quite costly.

Do maintenance right. Proper maintenance preserves efficiency,enhances reliability and lengthens the service life of the equipment.Postponing or neglecting routine maintenance is an unwise and costly practice.

Train Maintenance Technicians on routine compressor, filter and drain checks.

“The benefits of good maintenance far outweigh the costs and efforts involved. Good maintenance can save time, reduce operating costs, and improve plant manufacturing efficiency and product quality.”Hank von Ormer.
