With a variety of industrial compressors and the high cost associated with their acquisition and operation, it is certainly important to monitor their performance and do periodic maintenance to keep them operational. Here are the top three reasons that asset managers must be considering to get the most out of their investment on such assets:
Maintain Operational Efficiency
Air Compressors are typically operated in an environment where there are a lot of environmental factors need to be considered to achieve their maximum efficiency. Problems like reduced oil level, voltage fluctuations, valve leakage etc. lead to lower down the compressor capacity and hence operational inefficiency resulting in direct revenue loss. Regular monitoring makes sure that the issues are caught up front before they convert into big problems.
Ensure Health and Safety
With continuous operation of air compressors, it is quite possible that issues like corrosion building up due to condensed water, air compressor overheating due to lack of ventilation etc. occur. Conducting air compressor maintenance checks can help safety officers proactively catch such problems to avoid compromising the safety of workers.
Asset Compliance and Assurance
In order to achieve relevant ISO and other standards for asset compliance and assurance, it is highly important to conduct regular maintenance inspections of air compressors. Having proof through record keeping can help organizations stay compliant with international safety standards.
