Why You Should Winterize Your Industrial Air Compressor
Why You Should Winterize Your Industrial Air Compressor
December 10, 2019

The cold season is upon us, with temperatures expected to dip as usual. Similar to how cars need to be fitted with snow tires, facilities that have industrial air compressors should look into winterizing their compressed air equipment. Being diligent with maintenance throughout the winter will help guarantee that your industrial air compressors remain reliable and durable.

If the temperature was to fall below the dew point, condensation will occur. Condensation will result in moisture damage and air contamination. No matter what industry you are in, this level of damage is undesirable as it may result in unwanted downtime and repair costs.

Moisture can cause rust not only by diluting or rinsing off lubrication, but by introducing excessive moisture that leads to erosion.

This will lead to a whole host of problems, including blockage or clogging caused by corrosive particles in the system as well as the drying and cracking of more vulnerable parts.

The first step to getting your industrial air compressors winterized is to schedule professional maintenance by a service team that you trust. Air Energy Group, LLC has decades of experience with industrial air compressors, and so we will know just what your systems need.

Your maintenance crew will be able to inspect all the important areas of the air compressor that are known to be more affected by temperature. This includes weather stripping, insulation, openings, drains, and tanks.

On top of that, your service team will be able to make professional recommendations regarding any additional steps that you can take to winterize not only your industrial air compressors, but your whole facility. Sometimes additional care is needed in regards to properly insulating the air compressor room, but you would not know where to start without the guidance of professionals.
