Frequently Asked Questions

If you are only using your machine occasionally then annually servicing your compressed air equipment should be sufficient. If you are operating your air compressor routinely, then it may be best to service it quarterly. It is always recommended to do small services whenever you have the ability and time to.

If you are ever worried that your air compressor is not working the way it is intended, it is always safest to turn it off and have trained professionals come and inspect it.

One of the first questions you need to ask when looking to purchase an air compressor is whether you need a piston or screw compressor. Each compressor is very different in design and is often used for different applications.

Piston Air Compressor

  • Cheaper upfront cost than its counterpart, however, it has higher maintenance costs.
  • Great for short-term or intermittent domestic and light industrial use.
  • Usually smaller in weight and size.
  • Operates intermittently and therefore it is not good in situations where you need a constant flow of air.
  • Only requires simple maintenance.

Screw Air Compressor

  • Higher upfront cost but lower maintenance costs over its lifetime.
  • Provides a high volume of constant compressed air.
  • More popular for regular industrial applications.
  • Not suitable for use in short bursts.
  • Operates at a much lower temperature than a piston compressor.

This completely depends on what air-operated equipment you will be using. To work out what size would be best for you, add up the air usage of all air tools that will be used simultaneously. It’s best to add an extra 20-25% to allow for future usage down the track. This is only a rough guide, the best way to ensure you have the correct size machine is to request a compressed air energy audit.

No, they do not. It’s always best to check for any problems after the first start-up but after that, you are ready to go. If you do find any leaks or problems, turn the machine off and be sure to contact your product provider before operating the air compressor again.

Air compressors are able to run off generators however it is not recommended. If you have access to mains electricity, it is recommended to power your air compressor through it. Generators have fluctuations in power which can cause problems for compressors as they require a constant voltage to run. It is even more important for screw compressors to be run off mains electricity rather than generators due to their constant operation.
