It’s important that you take oil samples overtime you perform your routine fluid checks. In addition, you should also monitor your air compressor for bearing vibration. Performing these tasks on a daily basis can warn you when it’s time to do an overhaul.
Signs You Need To Overhaul:
If you encounter any of the signs below, we recommend an immediate overhaul.
- You discover oil contamination with metal fragments in the oil sample, as this is a sign of wear.
- You notice the temperatures of the internal compressor is rising, which is a sign that the cooler is not working.
What’s The Difference Between Remanufacture and Rebuild?
There are two options when it comes to overhauling an air compressor, you can either remanufacture or rebuild. The big difference between the two options is that a remanufactured air compressor needs to be overhauled within the factory of the original equipment manufacturer, while a rebuild is conducted in the field, at the customer site.
