Maintaining Used Air Compressors

Used air compressors in Toronto can bring great benefits to your business not just in terms of the money saved, but also in helping you keep productivity high. Like any machine, used air compressors need to be maintained carefully to ensure optimal efficiency.


Once you purchase your used air compressors in Toronto, make sure you implement a proper maintenance schedule using professional technicians.


Aside from that, there are a few things you can do from time to time to check on the health of your compressor:


  1. Check the Hoses: The ideal hose size for air compressors is a 3/8 inch hose. This is because it does not limit the airflow coming from the air compressor. When inspecting the hoses, make sure there are no obstructions that can restrict or limit the airflow in any manner. A hose that is smaller in diameter may cause restricted airflow. If you notice any damage to your hoses, make sure to call your technicians immediately.
  2. Regular Lubrication: Used air compressors in particular can benefit from a generous amount of lubrication. It is important to use the right kind of lubrication as any generic lubricant is not going to cut it. Using the wrong product can harm other components of the air compressor. If you are unsure, make sure to consult with your air compressor provider first.


As long as you perform these checks regularly, you should be able to keep your used air compressor running as smoothly as possible for a long time. On top of that, you should make sure there is a preventative maintenance schedule in place not just for your used compressor, but all your compressors. Compressed Air International will not only be able to provide you with high-quality compressor products, but also with compressor services such as maintenance and repair.
