One of the most tedious yet still necessary components of the game of golf is regripping your clubs. It can be a time-consuming and frustrating task — and a messy one at that. Regular players should be in the habit of Continue reading
When excess amounts of oil become aerosolized by the compressor’s discharge, it can be damaging to pneumatic tools and accessories. Even worse, oily discharge can cause ill effects on applications, sometimes to the point where projects must be scrapped and reworked entirely. Luckily, the problem is usually easy to identify and remedy, since oily discharge is typically due to one of the following issues: Continue reading
If power is being lost due to supporting a number of tiny air leaks, efficiency can only be regained with thorough repairs. Without a pressure–control device in place, an incomplete round of repairs can actually end up wasting more energy. As the pressure increases, more air is ultimately leaked through the holes that remain.Call the experts at Scales for all your maintenance needs. www.scalesair.com/locations-a-directions
When purchasing a new compressor, many people tend to focus on the capabilities it provides — and for good reason. But once you’ve selected a compressor, it’s time to install it. While a lot of thought goes into compressor selection, many people don’t consider issues that could arise during installation. Below are three quick tips that will help your compressor installation go smoothly. Continue reading
Like Queen, we’ve all been under pressure. Whether it’s a tight deadline at work or chores to finish around the house, there’s no denying that daily stress can pull us down like a heavy weight. Okay, so maybe it’s not a literal pressure, but you get the idea. Pressure, in the scientific sense, is defined as force per unit area, measured in pounds per square inch. While pressure may leave us feeling run-down and exhausted, it’s exactly what air compressors rely on to function.
Find out how Quincy takes performance and reliability to the next level with their next generation of compressors. Both the QGD and the QGDV are smarter, quieter, more efficient, and easier to work on then ever before. Check out the video above for a clear walkthrough of the new additions.
Also, be sure to take a look at our PDF brochure below for more detailed info on the QGD and QGDV compressors.
- Determine the needs of compressed air functions – When selecting an air compressor system, it’s crucial to be familiar with the specific needs of every possible use. For example, a compressor shouldn’t be operated without explicit knowledge of how much moisture can be permitted versus how much moisture must be eliminated for a given application. Compressed air that might seem sufficiently dry for one function could end up causing moisture damage elsewhere; it all varies. After all, even the hottest and driest spots on the planet have moisture in the air. No matter what applications it’s intended to handle, a compressed air system always contains some level of moisture.
Why Drying Is Needed on Industrial Air Compressor Systems. Along with electricity, gas and water, compressed air is one of the most important utilities for buildings. At certain times of the year, however, a compressed air system needs to be dried. The reason for this is due to Continue reading
NFPA 99 requirements for medical gas system maintenance has always been a gray area. There had been recommendations in appendix C, but they were not actually part of the requirements.
It wasn’t until 2012 that the NFPA 99 actually included maintenance requirements for equipment and for people who perform maintenance. Inventory requirements, inspection schedules, inspection procedures, maintenance schedules, and qualifications of people maintaining these systems are all part of the 2012 edition.
There are three different qualification requirements for people maintaining medical gas systems:
We wanted to share with you all a comprehensive article about compressed air systems and the best practices during the winter. We will be sharing this as a Three Part Series so be sure to check back for more.
With each passing year, regions across the United States are experiencing more extreme patterns of weather. In many parts of the country, this past summer has been one of the hottest on record. As fall approaches Continue reading
