Answer:One of the best ways to increase the working life of your air compressor is to establish a regular maintenance program. If you have a Reciprocating Air Compressor - the following information can provide the schedule you need.
Before you perform any maintenance, always do these steps...
- Switch main disconnect switch to "off" position to assure no power is entering unit.
- "Lock Out" or "Tag Out" all sources of power.
- Be sure all air pressure in unit is relieved. Failure to do this may result in injury or equipment damage.
