What do you need to think about when considering a service agreement?
When was the last time you changed all of your compressed air filters?
From onboard filtration to downstream filtration there could be a multitude of filters. Once they become clogged it can cost you big time
Did you know compressed air dryers and condensate drains produce and remove a lot of moisture in a given day?
Regular service on these items are a must as added moisture can cause havoc on your system.
When was the last time you performed a lubricant analysis?
Taking samples every 2000 hrs is a great way to understand the health of your equipment.
Have you ever performed temperature measurements on your compressed air systems?
Keeping the temperature below or at MFG requirements will increase the life of your equipment. Keep an eye on the air intake temp., ambient air temp, intercooler approach temp, thermo mixing valve in and out temp and after-cooler outlet temp.
When was the last time your lubricant, oil filter, inlet filter, and air/oil separator were changed? Were they changed on time?
Missed changes on these items can really add up over the life of your compressor costing you big time down the road. Change these, in many cases quarterly, to maximize your compressed air equipment’s life.
