Maintaining air compressors in the semiconductor fabrication industry requires constant monitoring and replacement of key industrial air compressor parts to meet stringent air quality requirements.
Companies in an extremely wide range of industries rely on air compressors to power all kinds of tasks and functions. As a result, air compressors are found in all kinds of facilities and settings in industries as wide-ranging as food processing, life sciences, and semiconductor fabrication.
Maintaining those compressors in such diverse settings, environments and use profiles is challenge.
Fortunately, your air compressor probably has settings reflecting the best practices for routine maintenance of key service items:
If you’re in a relatively clean environment, you may be able to go slightly longer on some of these issues. But remember this warning: when things start going bad, they go bad quickly.
In addition, most air compressor users have pressure indicators measuring pressure before and after the separators. Anything above a two-pound drop is a problem—making your compressor work harder than necessary.
And you’re not only damaging your compressor, but you’re also wasting energy (and money)—the more pressure differential you have, the more energy you’re wasting. Remember the general rule of thumb: every two pounds of pressure you’re losing is costing you 1% in power. If you have a clogged filter, you’re wasting an extra 5% on your energy bill.
Food and beverage companies have stringent quality regulations their systems must meet, including the use of USDA- and NSF-approved food-grade fluids.
The setting in which your compressor is operating will drive the maintenance requirements.
If your air compressor is located in a hot room, for example, you will need to perform maintenance more often than the schedule listed above.
Similarly, if it’s in an area where there is a lot of dust and dirt, you will need to check thefiltersand do other maintenance more frequently.
To meet life sciences and healthcare industry regulatory requirements, you must carefully maintain your compressed air system.
If you’re experiencing problems, especially poor performance, you can follow this process to address your issues.
If none of those steps resolve your issue, you may have an electrical problem. Many of those are a little more complicated because they may originate upstream from your compressor—like the unstable voltage, for instance.
Most manufacturers require use of original OEM parts to maintain product warranties. We strongly recommend that you use genuine Kaishan parts to maintain the integrity of your air compressor system and allow it to achieve the performance level you expect.
Plus, in the same way we’re taking advantage of the latest technologies in enhancing the performance of our products, we’re also applying the latest advances to our parts. Using our recommended parts will allow you to achieve the following benefits:
When you are working with any of the electrical issues mentioned above or even to ensure your air compressor system is working at an optimum level, it may make sense to develop a relationship with an air compressor system maintenance professional.
Many companies are finding that they no longer have the kind of expertise they need in-house to deal with more advanced equipment.
And, when you go beyond routine maintenance, additional costs of hiring a pro may well be offset by preventing downtime and savings in energy costs. Especially when you consider that reducing compressed air loss from the normal 40% to 50% range to 20% or less can easily save you tens of thousands of dollars annually in energy costs.
Bring in a professional anytime you see a drop in performance you just can’t explain. Or when one of the troubleshooting tips mentioned above takes care of the problem.
