Why is air compressor servicing necessary?
Your compressor works hard for you, day in day out. As with your car, which needs servicing every year (or more if you do a higher mileage), your air compressor needs to be serviced once a year or more to keep it running efficiently and reliably. Most piston and rotary screw air compressors are oil lubricated. The quality of the lubricating fluid degrades over time and the filters that clean the oil can also start to get blocked. The lubricating fluid is the key to the life and efficiency of your compressor, if the oil degrades or the filters become blocked your compressor will wear eventually leading to un-repairable damage to the interior of the compressor.
Air/oil separators get blocked up and this reduces the efficiency of the machine as well as causing problems with oil carry over. The same thing happens to line filters and inlet air filters, after a certain amount of time the filtration material gets contaminated and the pressure differential increases causing unecessary load on the air end or pistons.
A regular routine service program can prolong the life span of your compressor dramatically.
Our team of trained service engineers are available to create and implement maintenance plans to ensure your system is in top condition throughout the year.
How can we help?
Our team are well-experienced in dealing with all elements of compressed air systems; screw, piston and variable speed compressors, dryers, filtration, breathing-air equipment and pipework. In addition our engineers are trained to maintain all major manufacturers including ABAC, Alup, Almig, Atlas Copco, Compair, Ingersoll Rand, HPC, Hydrovane and Fini. No matter what make or model of compressor you have we can offer a competitive price for your servicing.
