At Glaston, we use a checklist when performing vital air compressor maintenance to ensure we service every part of the compressor effectively. Here is every step of our compressor maintenance service:
The ambient and surrounding atmosphere must remain as clean as possible, ensuring no debris or contaminants enter the air system.
If required, a clean supply of water with regulated temperature and controlled pressure is essential.
If the compressor, condensate and drains are not properly maintained an oil leak could cause environmental concerns.
All gauges and controls need to be checked and calibrated regularly because readings might become affected by moisture and other contaminants.
Dirty inlet filters can increase wear on compressor components and leaking intake can cause system contamination.
Keeping your compressor clean is vital to running efficiently and without issues. Cleaning dust with air guns should be done regularly and compressors should be covered when not in use.
Using lubricants during air compressor maintenance helps to extend the life of your system and reduce future maintenance costs by ensuring smooth operation.
Valves must be regularly cleaned, checked and maintained to avoid deterioration in air compressor performance.
Air compressors come under pressure system regulations and all insurers will require maintenance to keep any company insurance valid.
