Air Compressor Servicing & Repairs
It is not uncommon to reduce costs by increasing the intervals between compressor services but at Adelaide Air systems we believe that the minimum service interval should be 2000 hours or annually. We have found that shorter intervals except in exceptional circumstances do little more than fill the service provider’s pockets with your money.

Basic Air Compressor Service Adelaide
The basic service on rotary screw compressors include the replacement of the air filter and oil filter along with a general inspection of the various electrical and mechanical components which tend to wear or loosen off due to operational vibrations. The replacement of the lubricant is totally dependent on what is being used; so it is not uncommon for the lubricant to last several thousand hours beyond any one service interval.
Adelaide Air Systems would point out that increased pressure drop across the inlet filter and increased differential across the separator elements has a direct effect on increasing the cost of operating any rotary screw compressor. This should prompt you to service your compressor as recommended by the manufacturer so as to ensure preventable costs.
