Why is Air Quality Important?

The type of air you use can have a heavy impact on your machinery regardless of what compressor you use.

It might seem like a minor thing to have lower quality air but they result in a number of issues with poor performance, lowered energy efficiency and equipment malfunctioning. It can shorten the lifespan of the equipment and slow down or even halt work productivity. For example, having water or moisture trapped inside the compressed air systems can inflict a substantial amount of damage to the piping system and can lead to rust and eventually cause your system to flop. Any sort particulates will wear away the equipment and create a further need for lubrication which could cause contamination. Compressors need to vent hot air or the temperatures will cause the motor to break down, however, any kind of contamination can damage the entire system’s ability to allow the heat to escape.

Bad Quality Air:

  • ¬†Cost of maintenance
  • Equipment Downtime
  • Poor work efficiency

Good Quality Air:

  • Saves Money
  • Can Keep Working
  • Lasts Longer
  • Keeps Proforming It’s Best


What equipment should you get to create quality compressed air?

Now that we went over the importance of good quality air there are some upgrades you can make on your equipment to maximize performance, efficiency, and longevity of your air compressed system.
