Industrial compressors in particular are the high-performance athletes in a production plant. They reliably deliver high quality compressed air for years, sometimes even decades. A general overhaul ensures that the compressor is state-of-the-art, because all current versions and modifications are always installed.
But even the best machine can get on in years, despite regular maintenance and excellent care. Components age and wear out and lead to the fact that compressed air generation no longer runs as efficiently as possible. A general overhaul ensures that the air quality, reliability and performance are state-of-the-art for a long time.
Inefficient machines can cost a lot of money, because if the performance decreases with the same power consumption, the cubic meter of air produced becomes more and more expensive. In addition, if wear and tear is not recognized in good time and the relevant parts are replaced, it leads to unplanned downtime - not just of the compressor, but in the worst case of production. Of course, this must be avoided at all costs. A general overhaul is often the method of choice.
A general overhaul ensures that the compressor is state-of-the-art, because all current versions and modifications are always installed. This means that air quality, reliability and performance are state-of-the-art for a long time.
The time comes when normal maintenance is no longer sufficient to keep the compressor performance at a top level. Our service technicians check the condition of the compressed air system when maintenance appointments are due and, taking into account the application, the operating profile and the site conditions, recommend the optimal time for a general overhaul so that the compressed air system continues to work with maximum energy efficiency and is fit for the future.
The costs of a longer unplanned production downtime can escalate very quickly. First the compressor stops, then production. Everyone can determine the follow-up costs of a production standstill themselves. Anyone who waits to decide on a general overhaul until the most important components of the compressor deteriorate in their performance, waste energy and ultimately fail, will probably regret it bitterly. A well-planned general overhaul takes production planning into account, and all necessary resources and components are available at the right time - for example during a planned production shutdown. The technicians then carry out the general overhaul efficiently, quickly and with minimal downtime.
A general overhaul can, under certain circumstances, entail considerable costs, which often have to be planned as capital expenditure. The planned major overhaul is a flexible solution that allows better control of the operating budget. Those who plan the general overhaul in advance can adjust the financial planning accordingly. In combination with a service plan, the costs can even be spread over several years.
