COMPRESSOR REPAIR | TYPES
Industrial and commercial air compressor repair is type dependent, and as such each is designed for its own applications. Your compressor was selected for the specific needs of your industrial site, commercial property, apartment buildings or municipality. We have experience repairing all of them. The four main types are:
- Rotary screw air compressors
- Piston air compressor
- Scroll air compressor
- Oil free air compressor
COMMON AIR COMPRESSOR REPAIRS
Does your air compressor make an unusual sound, such as a knocking noise, while it is loading or operating at a high RPM? There could be a number of causes, such as damage to your main bearings, bad connections with your rod bearings, or a loose flywheel or rod. The problem will gradually worsen over time if it isn’t corrected promptly, which is why it is important let our experts identify the issue and make repairs as soon as possible.
If the oil in your compressor’s reserve appears to be an unusual color, then it is probably contaminated. This problem can usually be resolved easily, but our technicians will need to conduct some troubleshooting to identify the right course of action. We may recommend using non-detergent oil, finding an air source with lower humidity levels, or replacing your air-cleaning units.
If your air compressor is leaking oil it can be very dangerous and can also damage other compressor components. An oil leak is often an indicator of a faulty valve, gasket, or hose. It is important that you have our experts inspect your compressor immediately if your oil is leaking to avoid dangerous scenarios and to prevent other parts from breaking.
A high discharge temperature can be a sign of numerous compressor problems. For instance, if the condenser is dirty or its fan is out, these are both sources of high temperature issues. Furthermore, if air cannot flow properly over the condenser it can affect the discharge temperature. The refrigerant can also cause temperature problems. Since there are so many possibilities, it’s important that you have an expert diagnose the issue and take the necessary repair steps.
Water in Air Lines
If there is water in your compressed air, it obviously can cause problems. This issue is common in summer when humidity causes condensation in the lines, which leads to moisture. First, you need to ensure that you have a drainage system that is working properly. If the problem consists even with proper drainage, then an air drying system may be the best option. Let our experts figure out the best solution.
Your air compressor can’t work properly without a steady supply of air. Even a minor air leak can drastically reduce performance or potentially cause the system to shut down. The air leak could be coming from your tank valve, hose, or air fittings. Only a trained technician can identify the source of an air leak in an air compressor and take the necessary steps to fix it.
Excessive Signs of Wear Belts
The pulleys in your air compressor require sturdy belts to provide the mechanical energy needed to drive the system. If they are showing signs of extensive wear, they can fail and then damage other components without warning. There could be a number of causes, such as excessive belt tension, poor pulley alignment, or a damaged crankshaft. We will identify the cause during troubleshooting and take corrective measures.
COMPRESSOR MAINTENANCE & FAILURE PREVENTION | PROACTIVE SERVICE
To avoid costly compressor repairs down the line you should plan regular maintenance service. We can check your compressor regularly and identify common problems before they become disasters. We can predict when a part is nearing the end of its life or estimate when repairs may become necessary so that you can plan ahead.
