The availability of spare parts for any product is the primary guarantee that it will continue to function for the best possible period; for the benefit of the company or the manufacturer; therefore Atlas Copco Equipment provides a spare parts package as a premium service. They guarantee that the production, even once the replacement is done will be the same, or maybe even better than before.
As the Original Equipment Manufacturer, we know exactly which parts need to be replaced when. After all, we are the ones who developed and tested them.
Using genuine spare parts for your compressor will reduce the chances of sudden breakdown.
Genuine spare parts are specifically designed to meet the requirements of your compressors. They have exactly same construction like hat of your original parts.
When the compressor is working at its optimal, the chances of pressure drop is immensely reduced, allowing it to consume less power and you to simply save money on the power costs.
Replacing the damaged parts with the genuine spares will ensure that your compressor serves for a longer period without any breakdown. The longer the life of the compressor and lower the maintenance, the more it’ll save you money on the longer run.
Genuine spare parts also come with a guarantee against any fault. Suppliers of non-genuine parts are unable to offer this type of guarantee, as their main focus is increasing their sales and not providing high-quality, original products.
Non-genuine parts are not at all designed to work exactly similar to the genuine parts. If the parts of the compressor have less efficiency, the final outcome would be of lower quality as well.Moreover, they might also have higher resource and power requirements that will further add up to the cost of production.
As they are not designed specifically for your equipment, non genuine parts may compromise the integrity and efficiency of your compressed air system. Genuine Atlas Copco parts guarantee the functionality of your compressor between maintenance jobs.
Using non-genuine spare parts could result in major component failure, which would have financial impacts on your production.
Whereas, the genuine spare parts do appear expensive in the beginning, but on the long run, they will prove much more cost-effective and gives you complete peace of mind.
In short, your compressor may be suffering in silence. In the long term, non-genuine spare parts, including lubricants, can be creating unseen damage to machinery, diminishing efficiency or, even worse still by affecting your air purity which in turn might result in end-product quality issues. The impact may not be immediate, although the effect on total lifecycle costs can be massive.
The simple truth is that only by using original spare parts can a compressor’s designed performance and efficiency be maintained for years of operation at the same level as when it was purchased. In that way, investment is not compromised and neither is the compressor’s quality output.
Most critical elements for the compressors are air filter, oil filter, and oil separator. They avoid damage or performance loss due to dust which causes following impact on your air compressor:
Hence it is critical to keep away dust and dirt contamination with genuine compressor filters and separators. As per a thumb rule, an extra pressure drop of 25 mbar at the air inlet will reduce the compressor output with 2% and an additional pressure drop of 1 bar over the separator element will increase the power consumption with 7%.
The Atlas Copco genuine filters are designed to withstand high operating pressures, high dirt retention, and temperature resistance, and therefore ensures good performance with low energy consumption and safety to equipment.
Apart from the basic functions of lubrication and heat absorption, lubricants prevent pollution and early corrosion. Risks of choosing the non-genuine oil for air compressors can reduce the equipment shelf life. This will also lead to the formation of sediments in the oil circuit and moving parts due to insufficient lubrication and thus there are chances that oil oxidation can corrode metal parts. The use of genuine fluids offers superior lubrication and protect equipment components. This reduces equipment breakdowns and perfects your machine’s performance.
Atlas Copco genuine compressor oil is a unique combination of premium quality base oil and specific amount of additives which makes it balance product. It covers many properties such as oxidation resistance, viscosity at low temperatures, and foam resistance, etc which ensure efficient working of your compressor. Genuine quality fluids last longer, which means less fluid replacement, decreased disposal costs, and less downtime during equipment maintenance.
Line filters cartridge cannot be replaced with a non-genuine piece as it reduces filter efficiency and allows dust or dirt particles to penetrate the air network. This can cause a pressure drop and increased power consumption and may result in a higher total life cycle cost of the compressed air system.
