Air Compressor Servicing: Before & After

What difference does air compressor servicing really make? See the effect for yourself following our latest service for Russell Richardson.

Most organisations that rely on their air compressors know the importance of regular servicing. But whilst they know it and stick to their regular servicing contracts, seeing it is a rather different thing. So we’re grateful to Russell Richardson for allowing us to share these photos which really highlight the before and after of air compressor servicing.

Will your compressor be so obviously in need of a service? Perhaps not — it all depends on the environment in which the air compressor sits and Russell Richardson’s compressor is exposed to a lot of dust and other contaminants — but even if the need isn’t quite so obvious, regular servicing is vital to ensuring your compressor keeps working efficiently.

The client:

If you live or work around Sheffield, you’ll know Russell Richardson. For more than 40 years, their vehicles have been on the road collecting and shredding confidential documents and then sending the waste for recycling.

The challenge:

This was a 3,000 hr service on a SolidScrew B11 air compressor. Take a look at the new filter sat next to the old one (below) and you’ll see just how much work they get through, so as part of this service we changed the air and oil filter and the panel filter, together with the oil and drive belts. Then we gave the unit a thorough clean — you can see the difference that made.

Because the environment is particularly challenging, we left a further five filters with Russell Richardson to hold on stock, so they can carry out further filter changes between now and the next full service. That helps protect their production process without tying them to needless callout or service charges when there’s only the one component that needs changing. It’s a great example of how we always try to match and tailor the servicing to the requirements of the business.
