purchased a new compressor? Are
you asking yourself, “Now what am I going to do with this old air compressor?”
Great news, you have options!
1. Your old compressor may have some life? Save it!
Keep it as a backup compressor. If your business depends on compressed air, then a backup compressor is the key to
always keeping you up and running. If your new compressor is due for maintenance, the backup compressor is there to keep your business
running. Calculate how much your business generates per hour and calculate 8 hours of down time, it is worth having back up.
2. Old compressor still working? Sell it!
Already have another backup compressor, then sell the old compressor on any social or online website like
Craigslist or Ebay. There are even websites that repurpose old compressors. Remember, brand names matter, clean off your machine and take
quality photos. If you put a little work in preparing for the photos, you’ll make more on the machine when posting.
3. Salvage the Parts. Salvage
the old compressor for scrap. Many clients will separate the metals for better scrap value; steel, copper (electric motor), iron (pump),
etc. Reuse the receiver/tank as additional air storage.

Reliability and Efficiency
With Ash Air compressors, you can count on reliability and high performance for even the most demanding applications. We focus our
efforts on the following:
Air is always contaminated with solid particles such as dust, sand, soot, salt crystals and water as it leaves the compressor. An effective
compressed air treatment system lowers the dew point of the air and takes out the elements that may harm equipment downstream of the
compressor and dryer
The ambient temperature in an air compressor’s environment can greatly affect your air compressor’s performance. All air compressors will
generate some amount of water, but depending on inlet air conditions some can produce large amounts of water.
