Why do air compressors need regular maintenance? How to maintain?
If you ask, does the car need maintenance? What is the use of car maintenance? I believe that people will regularly maintain their cars. However, for the air compressor equipment that also needs regular maintenance, some users do not think that it is not regularly maintained. Wait until the air compressor fails to stop, and then hurriedly find service personnel to repair.
In fact, maintenance work is an important work in the daily operation of air compressors. When the air compressor runs for a period of time, it is necessary to maintain the air compressor. Inspection, cleaning, fastening, lubrication, removal of hidden dangers, etc., are a series of maintenance work of air compressors.
The role of regular maintenance of air compressor:
1. Keep the air compressor in good working condition and give full play to the working performance of the air compressor:
2.to ensure the safe operation of air compressor, reduce operation failures, reduce production costs, improve production efficiency;
3. to ensure the economic operation of air compressor, can reduce oil consumption, component consumption, etc.;
4.reduce the wear and abnormal damage of air compressor parts, extend the service life of parts and the whole machine.
So how should the air compressor be maintained?
1, daily maintenance
Check the oil level, check the air filter and coolant level, check whether there is leakage in the hose and all pipe fittings, check that the consumable parts have reached the replacement cycle and must be stopped for replacement, check the exhaust temperature of the main engine, which reaches or is close to 98°, the oil cooler must be cleaned and the pressure difference of the separator must be checked. When it reaches more than 0.6Bar (limit 1Bar) or the pressure difference begins to decline, the separator core should be stopped and replaced.
2, monthly maintenance
Check the cooler, clean if necessary, check all wire connections and tighten them, check AC contactor contacts, clean the dust on the surface of the motor suction outlet and the surface of the housing, clean the return oil filter to check whether the air compressor is set and operated consistently.
3, quarterly maintenance
Clean the main motor and fan motor, replace the oil filter element, clean the cooler, check the Z* small pressure valve, safety valve, check the sensor.
4, annual maintenance
Replace the lubricating oil and oil separator filter element, replace the air filter element, oil filter, safety valve calibration, check the elastic coupling to check the cooling fan, clean the automatic blowdown valve, supplement or replace the motor lubricating oil.
In fact, the maintenance of the air compressor is the same as the maintenance of the car, not to say that it is broken and the fault needs to be repaired, but to do a "physical examination" to eliminate the hidden trouble and prevent the occurrence of the air compressor fault. Some users feel that each maintenance has to spend money, but think about it, when the air compressor failure needs to be repaired, its cost will be greater. At the same time, when the air compressor fails to operate, the loss caused by the factory shutdown is also very huge.
