When working in oil and gas, chemical or food processing industries, routine shutdowns are something that can’t be avoided. Planned shutdowns are essential in making sure that equipment is operating efficiently, it’s also a great way to extend the life of your equipment. But it’s not just larger businesses that can benefit from a planned maintenance and shutdown period. Workshops, panel and paint, manufacturing facilities and more can all see the rewards from taking time to ensure their plant and equipment like air compressors are looked after so you don’t see any unexpected breakdowns.
If you work in a business that manufactures food and beverages, pharmaceuticals or electronics and you require the use of compressed air then you will no doubt know the importance of having high quality compressed air on hand. Compressed air can contain unwanted substances like oil and water, so it’s important that the compressed air you’re using is up to the required standard for the job. Poor quality compressed air can affect operations and, depending on where you’re using the compressed air, these unwanted substances can impair your production results, staff health and end up costing you more money.
Are you asking yourself that question right now? Is your compressed air piping letting you and your company down with air leaks, sags, moisture, and other troubles that you just DON’T need?
Remember: “The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price has been forgotten”.
How do we know this? The proof is in the pudding.
