Keep Your Compressor Up and Running This Summer

compressor-summer-service
Summer is here and with that comes heat. As peak summer heat is considerably dangerous for the human body, the same goes for air compressors. If high ambient heat is not managed properly, there can be severe repercussions to the air compressor and may lead to high production loss and downtime. Your air compressor also becomes less efficient and results in high power cost.

Here are essential tips from our service experts to maintain the compressed air system in the summer season

The most important activity which is recommended during any season is the daily inspection of compressors. This includes checking the oil level, air filter leakages and noise, and followed by the close monitoring of the compressor parameters from the controller/Elektronikon. These parameters can be recorded by remote monitoring tools like SMARTLink as this will help you to understand the performance of the machine and take necessary preventive action accordingly.

  • Clean Cooler - Blocked or clogged coolers can cause an air compressor to overheat on hot summer days. Hence, ensure coolers are cleaned properly before the peak hits the compressors.
  • Check Drains - Higher humidity in the summer causes more condensate to come out of the drains. Be sure the drains are in perfect working order so they can handle the extra flows.
  • Check Air and Oil Filters - Dirty filters lead to pressure drops, but clean filters will reduce energy consumption. Make sure to clean or replace compressor air and oil filters.
  • Check Compressor Oil - High ambient heat can decrease oil life expectancy. Using genuine oil & oil filter and following the recommended oil change intervals will ensure that your compressor runs cool and consumes less energy.
  • Check Ventilation - Proper ventilation of the air compressor room is important to route hot air out of the compressor room using ducts and vents.
  • Adjust Water Cooling Systems - With water-cooled compressors, adjust the temperature and flow of water entering the compressor to ensure that it is cool enough for summer conditions.
