Compressor is said to be maintained per 2000 hour with multiples in general are:

Compressor preventive maintenance checklist:

Daily checks:

This activity is usually done to check compressor conditions such as

  • checking the oil level.
  • Checklist of running hour, temperature and pressure operating data.
  • cleaning the outside of the compressor and checking for leaks

Weekly check:

This weekly activity is usually carried out for such minor treatments

  • Cleaning filter water.
  • Clean the engine from dirt or machined dust
  • make minor repairs such as oil leakage.

Preventive maintenance per 2000 hr

This treatment is done to replace the fast moving of the compressor as well as what minor repairs if there are abnormalities such as:

  • Water filter replacement
  • Oil filter replacement
  • Oil change (when using mineral oil)
  • Electricity casting.
  • Minor repairs if indicated there are abnormalities that must be corrected.
  • Cleaning engine parts that are dirty from oil and dust

Preventive maintenance per 4000 hours:

This activity is carried out to carry out further treatment after 200 hours by doing:

  • Filter oil change
  • water filter replacement
  • oil separator replacement
  • compressor oil replacement (both synthetic and mineral)
  • General cleaning including cleaning cooler
  • checking the electrical system
  • minor improvements indicated earlier

Preventive maintenance 8000 hours:

This activity is carried out as in the 4000 hour preventive maintenance activities such as:

  • Filter oil change
  • water filter replacement
  • oil separator replacement
  • compressor oil replacement (both synthetic and mineral)
  • General cleaning including cleaning cooler
  • checking the electrical system
  • minor improvement indicated earlier.
  • Oil thermal valve replacement
  • replacement auto drain kit
  • Checking with motor and screw vibrations using the SVM meter

Preventive maintenance 24000 hours:

This activity is usually called a big service or overhaul with activities like:

  • Overhaul kit replacement
  • Filter oil change
  • water filter replacement
