Keeping an inventory of compressor spare parts on hand can make all the difference between production downtime & getting back up and running in an instant. Genuine replacement parts are designed to meet the same stringent performance tests and reduce downtime significantly.
Remanufactured Commercial Compressors
Instead of replacing their entire air compressors, many contractors opt only to replace their most essential components, saving money on energy costs while prolonging their lifespan. This strategy allows contractors to save time and energy when upgrading their compressors.
To do this, they utilise remanufactured commercial compressors as replacements for their aged units, following strict OEM specifications when performing this procedure.
Remanufactured compressors undergo disassembly, cleaning, and gauge inspection in order to identify worn or nonfunctioning parts that must be replaced before being reassembled, sealed, nitrogen charged, run tested, run tested again if successful, and run tested again as part of their final acceptance criteria before they’re sold on to contractors, reducing both time and money spent while decreasing inventory needs. This provides contractors with cost savings while reducing storage needs compared to buying brand-new compressors.
Bearings are mechanical components used to facilitate rotation and reduce mechanical friction between machine parts. Bearings can be found in machines like cars, planes, electric generators, refrigerators, and vacuum cleaners—not to mention automobiles themselves!
Bearings are made from materials that are stronger than the equipment they’re supporting but weaker than any contact surfaces they come into contact with. This way, any wear caused by friction will only impact the bearing surface instead of damaging other parts of the machine, thus prolonging its lifespan and cutting maintenance costs.
Different bearing types are designed for specific applications. Deep-groove and spherical bearings are particularly well suited to misalignment situations. When choosing the appropriate bearing, other considerations include operating conditions, fluid pressure, and rotation speed, as well as the type of lubricant used. PE Mechanical exam review courses note this fact.
An oil filter in a compressor works to filter impurities out of engine oil. This is key, as even minute particles of hard substances like ash, chemical toxins, and moisture could damage internal parts and require costly repair or replacement services.
Filters consist of metal cans with threaded centre holes for oil to flow through and are filled with porous filter media made up of microscopic cellulose fibres folded into multiple pleats to increase surface area.
OEM air compressor parts ensure that your equipment is operating at peak performance. Utilising non-genuine parts can compromise reliability and decrease the performance of your compressor, potentially costing more in downtime and production expenses than genuine components would.
Seals in an air compressor experience significant wear and tear over time, leading to reduced maintenance costs and shaft wear. Mechanical seals can help reduce this wear by protecting shaft and sleeve wear as well as lowering maintenance expenses.
Genuine OEM suppliers typically enjoy close relationships with original equipment manufacturers (OEM), so they are often able to supply replacement parts rapidly for your compressor’s fast turnaround. In comparison, non-genuine suppliers may take longer due to limited resources and longer downtime as a result of procuring parts from them.
NEAC’s sealing solutions consist of an extensive selection of rings and packing. Each component is rigorously tested under various pressure and temperature conditions to ensure reliable operation of your compressor, with perforations to prevent wrap-rage upon unsealing.
Sensor systems on compressors must monitor environmental variables like oil levels, temperatures, and pressures in order to provide the optimum operating conditions for their machines. This is crucial because every air compressor is designed for specific environments; deviations may cause it to wear faster while increasing energy usage.
These sensors can automatically shut down when certain parameters fall outside their normal range, protecting expensive components while safeguarding personnel and equipment in your plant from possible danger.
These sensors can also be found on larger critical compressors to help prevent downtime by detecting low oil pressure, high or low-temperature conditions, or seal air pressure issues that might otherwise halt operations. Our rigorous endurance testing ensures these sensors will always function as expected.
