Brewing FAQ's

How do I know I've outgrown my compressor?

A clear sign that you have outgrown your air compressor is when your compressor begins to show signs of burnout. It is important to replace your compressor at this point to avoid costly downtime. Check out this article on how we reduced a beverage packagers downtime.

Am I SQF or FDA safety compliant?

It is important to keep your equipment leak free and your air clean and dry to avoid beverage contamination. John Henry Foster offers food safe products ranging from our air compressors to USDA approved Stainless Steel Cylinders.

How can I easily replace parts?

John Henry Foster offers a couple solutions for easy replacement of your compressor parts. We have a 24-Hour Emergency Service you can call to take care of unexpected downtime caused by malfunctioning or worn parts. We also offer remote service, so skilled and certified experts are only a call away to answer your part questions, and help you replace them ASAP.

What if I have too much moisture in my air system?

Too much moisture in the air will ultimately result in your compressor malfunctioning, costing you money for compressor downtime. The good news is you only need to make one change to remove the moisture: get a refrigerated dryer. The refrigerated dryer will keep your system running clean and free of excess moisture. We can audit your system to make sure yours is running efficiently and correctly.

Why does my canning and bottling process take so long?

Your compressor may not be working at a high enough CFM. You may need to upgrade your air compressor to a Rotary Screw Air Compressor. As a guideline, it is best to keep your pressure above 140.

What do I do when my compressor or parts break?

John Henry Foster has a 24-Hour Emergency Service so that when you come in contact with unexpected downtime, you aren’t left in the dust. Our highly trained technicians are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including holidays, for air compressor repair. Looking for the right number to call?
