Summer has arrived and that too in full intensity. As peak summer heat is considerable dangerous for human body, same goes with the air compressors. The high ambient heat, if not managed properly can cause severe repercussion to the air compressor and may lead to high production loss and downtime. It also makes your air compressor less efficient and results in high power cost.
Here are the few essential tips from the Atlas Copco service experts to maintain compressed air system in the summer season and to safegaurd from the losses.
The first and foremost activity which is recommended at all seasons is daily inspection of compressors which mainly includes checking of oil level, air filter, leakages, noise, etc followed by close monitoring of the compressor parameters from 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 accordingly necessary preventive action can be taken.
As always, consult a compressed air specialist for recommendations specific to your facility’s processes.
