Certainly  you should hope the service life of the air compressor could be longger when you are buying it.Then how to extend the service life of air compressor?

Actually,it’s very simple.Regular care and maintainance is a very important  job,and need your attention.When the air compressor is out of order,don’t be eager to solve the problem.You should find the professional person to evaluate the air compressor at the right moment.Knowing the running condition of the air compressor’s air system clearly.Find the keyof the  problem.Thus you could maintain the service life of the air compressor.

Air compressor also  needs maintainance.Generally speaking,maintenance should be done every 2500 to 3000 hours, replace filters, separators and lubricants.In normal time, you should keep aeration and clean the ash of it,keep the air exhaust and cooling system clean.If so,you can use it for 8-10 years.

Obey these following requests could extend the service life of air compressor:

1.Improve the environment of intake  air,and  intake mass----Chose the dry,aeration,keep away from steam, gas and dust.At the air compression station  you should set a vet window on the ventilation window. Filter cotton is added to the air inlet of the air compressor, which can effectively improve the quality of air intake, thus improving the service life of the air filter, but also can make the radiator work better, not easy to cause high temperature of the machine.(filter cotton should be cleaned regularly)

2. Regular maintenance - general air compressor operation 2500 to 3000 hours on the maintenance of the machine, the main replacement of air filters, oil filters, air and oil separator, lubricating oil, motor filling grease.

3. Equipment overhaul - In the process of air compressor operation, it will cause wear on its gear shaft and bearing, so that the rotor clearance is too large, affecting the air production, serious will make the head "locked". So in the unit operation 30,000 hours or 3 years, the machine should be overhauled, replacement of the head, motor bearings and insensitive valve parts.

4 Air compressor lubricants selection -- air compressor must choose special oil for air compressor, do not choose inferior lubricants, or other equipment to use lubricants, lubricants can not be mixed.Otherwise, it will cause glue forming in the oil circuit of the unit.

5. Regular inspection -- regular inspection can better understand the working condition of air compressor and timely find problems. If the air compressor is found to be in trouble, timely communicate with maintenance personnel to avoid unnecessary economic losses.

6 Daily maintenance - air compressor daily maintenance is also very important, regularly blowing radiator in summer,could make the machine better heat dissipation, not easy to stop high temperature.Air storage tanks and line filters should be regularly drained.
