How to prevent moisture problems in air compressors
- Ensure normal exhaust temperature
Because the normal exhaust temperature will be above the ambient temperature +55 degrees, this temperature will vaporize the moisture, discharge it together with the compressed air, and then discharge the moisture through the subsequent dryer. Some special situations will cause the oil temperature to be too low. For example, some frequency conversion units, when the load is low (below 50%), it is not easy to establish sufficient oil temperature. In this case, it is necessary to ask professional service personnel to adjust some parameters.
- Use genuine lubricating oil
The old driver of the service engineer contributed his experience. Before the unit restarts after a period of shutdown, the oil drain valve of the oil and gas barrel can be slowly opened to drain the water in the oil.
- Ask professional service personnel to check the aging circuit
In the control panel, some lines are aging, which may cause sparks and short circuit under wet conditions, ranging from abnormal tripping to shutdown, and burning the control panel in severe cases.
- Check the air compressor room
Avoid rain leakage, water ingress, and ensure perfect lightning protection facilities. It is always more cost-effective to prevent problems before they happen than to make up for them afterwards. Don’t make big mistakes because of small things. In addition, once the air compressor room encounters water ingress, please stop immediately to avoid greater losses.
