How to get a reliable compressor
The key to getting a reliable compressor is making sure that the compressor is sized properly for your application. The best way to do this is have an authorized Compressed Air Systems distributor come out and look at your application. We also have several sizing guide for you to use to get started. Once you have purchased your Compressed Air Systems air compressor the next step is getting a routine maintenance program set up. Each compressor comes with a manual that is also downloadable from the web site. In the manual the general maintenance procedures are listed, they are also on the tank or base of your Compressed Air Systems compressor. Your local distributor can get your set up on a maintenance plan at the time of your compressor purchase to make the process as easy as possible.
In any system where you are relying on the compressor for use daily, it is always recommended to have some form of backup compressor. As compressors are mechanical devices, they will need to be serviced and repaired over time. When installing a new system, look at your air needs and make sure you have a backup that will be able to handle at least 50% of your usage. This will enable you to continue working while the main compressor is being maintained or serviced. If you have any questions on what type of a backup compressor you should have contact CAS or your local CAS distributor.
