Optimize your compressor maintenance program
One deviation alone might not be enough to bring on a compressor failure, but, when several more deviations combine, the failure risk is known to increase exponentially.
According to many sources, maintenance cost avoidance can be built into a compressor specification.13 Maintenance cost avoidance should be confirmed during the pre-purchase machinery quality assessment (MQA). At all times, specifying, purchasing, installing and operating reliable compressors makes more sense than buying compressors based on faith, past reputation or the lowest bid.
When purchasing new compressors, the best available solutions are minimizing risks as part of the process to specify, design, build and install the machines. It is possible to design out the need for frequent or specific types of maintenance. Remember: The most desirable compressor is designed
