The heart and soul of any industrial refrigeration plant is the compressor. These unsung heroes churn away day in and day out to keep rooms cold, processes cool, or just downright freeze. A lot of plants these days have screw-type compressors installed to achieve this.
When was the last time your compressor was inspected?
At Oomiak, we understand that compressor performance is vital to any business and unplanned faults or failures lead to costly downtime and excess expenditure. To keep these ‘hearts pumping’ maintenance is a key element and needs to be carried out on a regular basis.
Compressor manufacturers recommend regular maintenance schedules to be carried out at specific running hours to ensure extended life on the machine, eliminate catastrophic failure and to comply with manufacturer’s warranty specifications.
A compressor running past its overhaul specifications can cause damage to clearance surfaces and wear to the compressor. Sometimes this wear can reduce the efficiency of the compressor and in extreme cases requires the compressor to be replaced. Regular compressor overhauls will extend compressor life.
“Overhauling compressors in our dedicated ‘Clean Room’ provides a controlled environment that ensures the cleanliness of compressor internals,” says Doug Steel, Oomiak’s Customer Service Manager for South Australia.
Is your compressor being maintained regularly?
Different brands and models of compressors have varying maintenance requirements depending on their run hours. This could be a simple 5,000-hour inspection, a thrust bearing inspection, or a complete overhaul. Although this may sound like industry jargon, it’s necessary to keep the heart of your cooling system in the best possible working order.
