Preventative Air Compressor Maintenance

Does your business rely on your Air Compressor working effectively and efficiently? If so, preventative maintenance is a must-do to keep your business steaming along. Completing routine preventative maintenance will extend the life of your compressor, save you from expensive repairs, and minimize costly downtimes for your business.

Here are 4 reasons why you should have a preventative maintenance program for your compressors:

  1. Increase Productivity: If your business relies on your compressor to get the job done to make money, you can’t afford any compressor breakdowns. A well-maintained compressor will have less breakdowns and downtimes – or none! Preventative maintenance can be scheduled during production downtimes to lessen the disruption to your businesses’ daily operations and keep your business moving!
  2. Maximize Compressor Life:  Routine factory maintenance will catch normal wear and tear items before they can damage the overall compressor. Also, routinely checking other components of your compressed air system and monitoring, replacing, or repairing them before they lead to more damage will allow your air compressor to last longer. This will allow your business to avoid having to purchase an expensive new air compressor system prematurely.
  3. Avoid Expensive Repairs: Neglecting your compressors’ normal wear and tear items such as: belts, motor bearings, filters, valves, intakes, and oil changes can lead to severe consequences. These consequences lead to expensive repairs and overall costly downtimes for your business. Routinely maintaining and checking these items can avoid these expensive situations.
  4. Safety:  The most crucial item for any business is the safety of their employees and customers. Misuse, neglect, or poor maintenance can lead to potential catastrophic failures of relief valves and over-pressurization of tanks. These failures can lead to the possibility of explosions or fires. These risks can be minimized by a proper preventative maintenance program. In the end, the safety of your employees and customers is your number one priority.
