Is Your Compressed Air System Ready for the Summer Heat?

Is Your Compressed Air System Ready for the Summer Heat?

Every year this time when the days starts getting hot and the humidity is climbing you want to make sure your compressed air system is running in top form.

There is a myth that if you change the oil regularly there is nothing to worry about. This is not true. Learn from us… industrial compressed air systems require periodic maintenance to operate at peak efficiency and to reduce costly downtime.

When your compressors draw in hot, humid air they need to be in good condition and the maintenance kept up. Inadequate maintenance can increase energy consumption due to lower compression efficiency, air leakage or pressure drops. Poor maintenance can also lead to high operating temperatures (often fatal), poor moisture control (deadly to quality), excessive contamination (ouch! more repair bills), and unsafe working environments. Generally, each of these starts as a minor issue, but can mushroom into big trouble if undetected and untreated. Hot weather exasperates the problems.
