Benefits of air compressor preventative maintenance

If you want your air compressor and its attachments to last longer and perform with greater efficiency, then you need to engage in a preventative maintenance programme designed by a trained professional.

Preventive maintenance makes it possible to detect problems at an early stage

Preventive maintenance makes it possible to detect problems at an early stage before they do serious system damage and lead to costly repairs and downtime. A trained compressed air engineer can identify small hiccups that can cause irreversible damages to your system when not taken care of immediately. They can also perform the proper preventive maintenance measures to make sure your system is running at its best. Detecting problems at an early stage before they do serious system damage and lead to costly repairs and downtime.

A preventative maintenance programme designed for your compressed air system

Each compressed air system is unique, from the combination of components, pipelines and air distribution to how your operations utilise the energy source. Preventive maintenance consists of inspections of all consequential system components — some according to a daily schedule, others on a weekly, monthly, quarterly or annual basis — to ensure everything works as it should. If you detect problems early, you can take steps to rectify matters. This is why the preventative maintenance programme must be designed by a trained professional.

Preventive maintenance involves low-cost measures that help avoid costlier situations

Unless your company is staffed with highly skilled personnel to handle maintenance tasks with air compressors, it is best to contact a professional for the following:

  • System safety-shutdown inspections
  • Motor replacement
  • Relocation of large, heavy air compressors
  • When you do not have qualified staff to work on your compressed air systems.
  • When mechanical breakdowns occur.

When you hire a professional for these and other time-consuming and possibly dangerous tasks, it can help you save time and money and also ensure that the job is done properly. Moreover, professional maintenance ensures utmost safety for the more difficult aspects of the job.

Only with preventive maintenance can you ensure the machines will work hour by hour, day after day, and continue to operate to their full life expectancy.
