Air compressors are devices that mechanically compress air. However, like other compressed air equipment, a compressor needs maintenance, servicing, and the replacement of various parts. It is very important to maintain compressed air equipment so that it functions properly and provides the quantity and quality of compressed air for your particular application.
Compressed air filters are both common and complex. Investing in a good compressed air filter can help you prevent many long and short-term problems while helping you save considerably in downtime and component replacement costs.There are some manufacturers that provide a delta p gauge as part of the filter assembly; which indicates a pressure drop and increase in pressure across the filter. The increase of pressure drop indicates that the filter element is trapping and suspending debris, removing it from the air stream and compressed air system. On the other hand, a decrease in pressure means that the filter element is dirty and close to being clogged. The dirtier the air, the sooner it gets clogged.
Contaminated compressed air filters lead to insufficient air supply issues. When the air application is not getting enough air pressure, check the filter element.Following a strict maintenance routine can help you keep potential problems to a minimum.
