How Industrial Air Compressor Repair Usually Works
July 18, 2017

When an industrial air compressor breaks down, it has a detrimental effect on the operations within the business or facility. The breakdown usually results in a decline in productivity. Symptoms include a reduced output, then the motor begins to slow down and, in time, comes to a complete standstill. Industrial air compressor repair can get the compressor system back to full functionality again. 


When an industrial air compressor breaks down, the following steps need to be taken to effect repairs:

  1. Diagnosis. Always utilize the services of an expert to diagnose the possible causes of a breakdown in a compressor system. Depending on the causal factor, the entire repair process will differ. This diagnosis entails the individual reviewing the operation of the compressor prior to the actual breakdown. Then, a description of the actual breakdown must be reviewed and narrated to be a record of the incident. From there, possible diagnosis can be performed by the maintenance expert.
  2. Electrical.  This is one way in which industrial air compressor repair can be done. If the malfunction is due to an electrical fault, this is the repair process employed. The first step when the compressor breaks down would be to power down the compressor. This would help avoid further damage to both the repair technician and the compressor system. The technician will then check if there is a scent of rubber burning or if sparks occurred. This would help localize the problem if the breakdown is due to electrical shock or malfunction.
  3. Mechanical. If the breakdown is mechanical in nature, then there would be a stoppage of the motor outright. Oftentimes, there would be a loud noise prior to the air compressor bogging down. When this occurs, it is best to leave the industrial air compressor repair activity to the experts to avoid exacerbating the problem.

As can be seen, a breakdown of an industrial air compressor would require expert hands for its repair. Before the expert arrives, you should attempt to power off the compressor to preserve the components that haven’t been damaged.
