Which Parts are Checked and Replaced During Routine Maintenance on my Air Compressor?

Routine maintenance on your screw compressor or piston compressor is vital to ensuring your unit is performing to its full potential. There are simple checks and inspections you can do daily, weekly and monthly to keep your compressor running efficiently and to avoid downtime.

The following list is a general guide on how to regularly check and maintain an air compressor. Note: Maintenance schedules can vary from one compressor to the next depending on ambient temperature, usage, type (piston vs. rotary screw), and other factors. Before performing any maintenance on your compressor, always read your operatorโ€™s manual first.
