Maybe you’re in the market to purchase compressed air equipment. Or, maybe you currently have your unit and are curious about proper installation, staying under warranty, and meeting installation codes. We get it. We know there’s a lot to consider, especially if you are installing compressed air equipment for the first time.
Have no fear. To help you get started, we created five common areas of focus to consider when installing compressed air equipment.
5 Areas of Focus for Compressed Air Installation:
- First of all, we encourage you to always plan for future maintenance, repairs and growth of your system. You don’t want misplacement of equipment resolving in blockage of paths during emergencies or even when common maintenance is needed. Therefore, we suggest considering the size of the technicians performing your frequent maintenance.
- Next, evaluate where drains, tanks and piping must go before installing. Especially when it comes to future inspections and draining.
- Then, inspect the room your equipment will reside. Is there ventilation? What is the quality of air like? What will the temperature in the room be throughout the seasons?
- Now, think about power requirements, sizes of the machines and if they will fit in the space allotted. You’ll be surprised how many pieces of equipment show up on site and they can’t even get through the door.
- Finally, look over operation manuals. Equipment has its own specific needs and provides operation manuals to determine how much service is required to operate effectively. In addition, operation manuals tell you how often to order parts to ensure your unit stays under warranty. Further, you can also visit our maintenance checklist that provide a general idea of service required.
