We are big believers in the wisdom that “it is better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one than to have an opportunity and not be prepared.” This adage applies to many things in life and business, even to air compressors. For the equipment rental house or contractor, keeping up with compressor maintenance keeps the equipment ready to rent and ready to work. Further, maintenance is the preparation for equipment longevity. This was recently confirmed for us when a customer brought in a portable diesel compressor with nearly 27,000 operating hours (equal to 8 hours everyday for 9 years) without any major service. This was the result of the owner faithfully following a maintenance schedule for all serviceable parts for both the engine and compressor.
In this white paper we will discuss maintenance points for air compressors that can contribute to more uptime and longer life. While your primary guide to service for your particular equipment is the product service manual, we’ll address how service needs may be affected by changes in seasonal climate.
