5 Benefits of Monitoring Your Air Compressor Data

In this article we explain why the latest generation of air compressors are equipped with digital tools to improve the performance of your compressed air system.

To get the highest return on investment from your compressed air installation, compressors need to be treated properly. The goal should be to get the maximum amount of work out of the air compressor during its lifetime. With good maintenance you can ensure the proper functioning of your compressors for more than a decade . 

Today, air compressors come with monitoring and data collection technologies that can give you better workflow and unforeseen cost benefits. Let's learn about the top 5 benefits of compressor data monitoring.

1. Data display and remote monitoring

Tracking and data collection technologies can produce valuable and viewable information . The information can track changes over weeks, months, and years, and inform you of trends and anomalies. Information can be viewed remotely, downloaded for further analysis, and even archived. Data collection and monitoring technologies allow maintenance teams to make more accurate decisions without the inconvenience of being physically present in the compressor room. 

2. Preventive maintenance

Knowing the status of your compressed air equipment at all times and being able to react to it is the surest way to achieve optimal efficiency and maximum availability. Monitoring and data collection technologies can detect any unexpected behavior at an early stage . Alerts or notifications can be relayed to maintenance teams and plant owners as soon as a problem arises to minimize downtime.

3. Long term compressor efficiency

Because air compressor monitoring and data collection technologies allow you to be proactive with your maintenance, total uptime over the life of the compressor is improved. In response to alerts and notifications, the compressors' software can take pre-programmed actions based on intelligent algorithms to fix the problem and keep the compressor's efficiency at its highest level. 

4. Elimination of manual tasks

Data collection and monitoring technologies make the job of running a compressed air facility less challenging. These technologies completely eliminate the traditional process of manually collecting data, creating reports, and distributing insights to stakeholders. Alerts and notifications are broadcast immediately for faster action, so all stakeholders receive the benefit of time savings and improved workflow.

5. Cost savings

Tracking compressor performance and proactively responding to information allows you to get more out of your equipment:

  • You will be able to optimize the production of compressed air for the cost of electricity.
  • You'll reduce labor costs associated with equipment inspection and problem diagnosis.
  • It will delay, and even completely avoid, incurring major repairs.

Attendees will be eligible for a free hour of leak detection along with detailed report!

Atlas Copco SMARTLINK

One of our best innovations is the SMARTLINK data monitoring program for air compressors.

SMARTLINK intelligently collects, compares and analyzes data to help compressed air users increase service and maintenance efficiency.  Case studies show that users have increased their run time by 3% per year, while saving up to 30% through improved energy efficiency that accumulates over the life of the air compressor.

Did you know that all Atlas Copco compressors come equipped with SMARTLINK? If you own an Atlas Copco product, we recommend that you start incorporating this technology into your workflow. If you would like to connect your compressor with SMARTLINK, contact us today for a visit.
