Ambient conditions can ruin an air compressor. The photos below show the compressor improperly installed in an area where there were significant amounts of abrasive grit in the ambient air (We also show one that is properly installed).
Even if the intake for the air compressor is outdoors, there are still other components that can be destroyed by a harsh environment. Don’t let this happen to you. Give Scales a call to discuss the proper placement of your air compressor for long life and reliable service.
