Factors Influencing The Service Life Of Screw Air Compressor!!

Dec 20, 2016

Air compressor air filter maintenance

Air compressor air filter is to filter the air of dust and dirt parts, clean, filtered air into the compression chamber compression screw rotor. Internal clearance for screw machine only allows 15u particles filtered out. If air filter clogging of air compressor is broken, a large number of particles greater than 15u into the screw machine cycle, not only greatly shorten the service life of oil filter, oil and gas separation filter, can also lead to a large number of particles directly into the bearing cavities, accelerated bearing wear of the rotor clearance increases compression efficiency, rotor boring even killed, greatly shorten the life of the air compressor.

Replacement of the oil filter

New oil filter should be replaced after 500 hours of operation for the first time, with special wrench counter-rotating engine oil filter removed, new oil filter front best and screw the oil, twist the oil filter oil filter seal with both hands, and firmly tighten. Recommends that the new oil filter replacement per 1500-2000 hours, when changing the oil is best to change the oil filter, use the replacement cycle should be shortened in environment. Extended limits is strictly prohibited to use the oil filter, otherwise due to cartridge jams, pressure exceeds the by-pass valve under limits, the bypass valve opens automatically, a large number of stolen goods, oil particles direct random access screw within the host, resulting in serious consequences.

Maintenance replacement of oil-gas separator

Oil and gas separator is to screw separation of lubricating oil and compressed air components, under normal operation, the service life of oil-gas separator in about 3,000 hours, but oil and air compressor air filter element filtration accuracy has a huge impact on their life. Visible in the poor use of environment must shorten the maintenance air compressor air filter replacement cycle, and even installed front air filter. Oil and gas separator expire or must be replaced after pressure over 0.12Mpa. Otherwise it will cause motor overload, gas-oil separation oil filter breakage. Replacement: remove the oil cover installed on the control fitting. Out put oil and gas on the lid into the barrel of oil return pipe, oil barrels down the upper cover fastening bolts. Remove the cover on the oil barrels, remove the oil light. Removing glued to the cover plate on the asbestos pads and dirt. Mount the new oil-gas separator, pay attention to upper and lower asbestos gasket must be nail book set, asbestos pads must be neatly when pressed, otherwise it will cause the die head. As it is on the back cover, the return line, the control tube, check for leaks.
