Why do air compressors must be switched regularly?

Common problems in operation and maintenance of Air Compressors:


22.Why do air compressors must be switched regularly?

    

    When multiple air compressors operate in parallel, they must be switched regularly.

    For air compressors with a humid working environment, switching operation is beneficial for discharging moisture in lubricating oil.

    If the air compressor shut down for a long time (such as about a month), it will make the sticky particles on the oil filter or oil separator dry, plugging the oil filter or oil separator fiber filter holes, so that the filter life shortened;

    The upper part of the rotor of the air compressor is not soaked in lubricating oil, and the machine is shut down for a long time, which makes the rotor contact with humid air and rust.

    Long time downtime will also cause air compressor pipe or main engine to deposit oil dirt, so that the air compressor is forced to be overhauled.
