Frosty industrial refrigeration compressor pipes

We can all take measures to prevent damage and breakdowns to our Air Compressors and associated equipment caused by extreme cold temperatures. Here are a few tips from us:


  • Drain all Air Receivers, Condensate Drains and Electronic Drain Valve etc of water to prevent ice forming
  • If possible; insulate any Oil/Water Separators that exposed to the elements
  • All Rotary Screw Air Compressors need to be covered or have small heaters installed inside so they don’t drop below freezing. Please contact us for further information about an installation
  • We’d be happy to assist you by carrying out a site survey for your specific circumstances
  • If you need any De-icing Salt for the icy conditions to come please contact the office for a special offer price of £9.95 (exc Vat) per 25kg bag. Please call 0114 2432347 and quote NOV09
