Even when you think you’ve done all you can to reduce the risk of contaminants getting into your air compressor, they still find a way. That’s why Aggregates R Us know the value of Algar Air servicing contracts.

The Client

Aggregates R Us supplies and delivers a wide range of building and decorative aggregates across the whole of the UK from its Finningly base. The company has a 2-year service contract with us for its numerous air compressors which are used to power its bagging machine (which puts the raw materials into bags), and the robot used to arrange the bags into pallet loads.

The Challenge

This was a call that shows just how important regular servicing is. Aggregates R Us keeps its compressors well maintained, with regular serving as per manufacturer recommendations. This compressor was well ducted too (the best way to ensure a clean supply of air to the compressor) and had its own compressor house.

Even so, working in aggregates inevitably means there’s a lot of dust in the air which still finds its way into the compressor. Over time, and without regular maintenance, the dust would clog filters and coat parts, increasing operating costs and the risk of wear and breakdown.

Our Response

We visit the site every six months to ensure Aggregates R Us’ compressors keep running. On this visit we carried out a 4,000 hr major service on the Hertz 22F compressor. As part of the service we:

  • Changed the oil
  • Changed air and oil filters, because clogged filters force the compressor motor to work harder, which will over time will reduce its lifespan
  • Changed the oil separator, because a fresh oil separator does its job more efficiently
  • Inspected all pipework and electrical connections
  • Cleaned down, before running up and testing the air compressor to ensure all was working as it should be
