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 a trained industry professional come and inspect its components.

When looking to improve energy efficiency, customers have to look further than the air compressor and evaluate the compressed air system as a whole.

The most essential part for improvement is generally your air piping system — how the compressed air is transported and used in the end application.

Both the design of the distribution and material used for piping affect energy efficiency.

Consult with a compressed air specialist to see what steps can be taken to pursue reduce your energy cost.

By running an energy-efficient operation, your business works toward saving money and creating a more sustainable future.

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

  • Piston air compressors have a cheaper upfront cost than its counterpart, however, it has higher maintenance costs
  • Cost-effective and great for short-term or intermittent domestic and light industrial use
  • Piston air compressors are 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

  • Rotary screw compressors have a higher upfront cost but lower maintenance costs over their lifetime
  • Provides a constant flow of high volume compressed air
  • More popular for manufacturing and heavy-duty industrial applications
  • Screw air compressors are not suitable for use in short bursts
  • Operates at a much lower temperature than a piston compressor

What size compressor you need is completely dependent on what air-operated equipment you plan on 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 any air compressor equipment again.

Many air compressors are able to run off generators, however, it is not recommended.

If you have access to mains electricity, it is recommended you use that to power your air compressor equipment.

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 rotary screw compressors to be run off mains electricity rather than generators due to their constant operation.
