Avoid compressor breakdowns in hot weather
While our thermometers are reaching unprecedented heights in this country and we are all trying to keep cool, it's worth bearing in mind that the heat can cause problems with your compressed air equipment. To help you to ensure that your compressed air supply remains constant and unaffected by the hot weather, BCAS reminds you to take the following steps:
Keep plant rooms well ventilated (important for your colleagues as well as your equipment!)
Check your oil - ensure it is at the required level and top up if necessary
Ensure filters are clean and not worn
Check dryer for internal and external blockages - clear with air if necessary
Have equipment serviced regularly - important to avoid any kind of breakdown but this is also an opportunity for you to ask our engineers about preventative measures you can take for your specific set-up
Taking these preventative measures should keep your compressed air equipment running throughout the summer, but if you do have any problems, please don't hesitate to contact us. We'll be happy to help.
