Why Rebuild Your Air End?
Air end rebuilding, when done before a catastrophic failure, can be an economical way to extend the life of your oil flooded rotary compressor. The three key questions always asked when it comes to air end “expected” life and rebuilding are:
- “When do I know that my air end needs to be rebuilt?”
- “How do I prevent a catastrophic failure?”
- “How much does an air end rebuild cost?”
The life of a rotary screw compressor air end varies based on these factors: manufacturer, application, environment, maintenance, oil type and general operating parameters.
