Challenge: How to enhance your preventive maintenance program through the use of fluid analysis as a diagnostic tool.
Myth: Fluid changes can be set strictly by the calendar.
Learn from us: Fluid analysis is not a one-time thing and it is definitely not an optional procedure to be left to “when we have the time.” A thorough and accurate fluid analysis conducted by Hope Air System’s engineers and technicians serves as a tool to measure and monitor principal fluid characteristics. This includes:
- metal content
- water content
The routine analysis will allow scheduled fluid changes and prevent unexpected equipment downtime.
The Hope Group responds: Preventive maintenance is your air compressor system’s best friend. Without proper “anticipatory” action, your system is at risk of failures ranging from annoying to fatal. Compressor fluid analysis is an important key in any preventive maintenance program. A thorough analysis should be conducted on a regular schedule to monitor wear, determine potential failures in process and to accurately schedule fluid changes.
Let’s do a fluid analysis
Exceeding the recommended fluid change intervals may result in a variety of problems:
- of fluid pools in the airend
- improper cooling
- airend overheating
- rotor wear
- housing wear
- airend efficiency loss
- build-up causing restricted fluid flow
- internal piping
Do you really want to leave all this to chance? The Hope Group engineers and technicians are ready to help with a fluid analysis to prevent costly failures and breakdowns.
