Repair or Replace - Ingersoll Rand compressor breakdown?

The original call-out was to respond to a compressor breakdown. The main manufacturing facility was serviced by an Ingersoll Rand compressor which had failed. Upon investigation a gate drive failure was the diagnosis. But with replacement parts totalling over £6,000 and no guarantee it would provide a long-term solution - because of the age of the compressor - a new compressor was costed up. The key driver would be the time required to source a suitable replacement.

New compressor sourced and installed in 24 hours

The new more powerful compressor provided a more reliable alternative. Plus, the new compressor was more energy efficient, immediately available and provided an increase in performance for the manufacturing facility. Covered by a manufacturer’s warranty, it provides a more cost effective solution and was commissioned in the same time it would have taken the spare inverter drive to arrive.
