What To Look For When Renting An Air Compressor?

Air compressors are essential pieces of expensive equipment, and the decision as to what type of air compressor to rent and from what company is not one that is often taken lightly. Ideally you want to an air compressor rental company that offers you the following four factors as part of their service:

#1 – Range

A company that can offer you a wide range of air compressor types is very important. Different industries and different companies have a range of different needs when it comes to the types of air compressors they might need. So, a company that has a wide stock selection to meet every kind of application need is essential.

#2 – Pricing

A big factor in the rental of any type of industrial machinery is, of course, price. We all know that cheaper is not always better, but you ideally do want a company that offers competitively priced air compressor hire rates as well as additional benefits like parts, servicing, and other after-sales service too.

#3 – Rental Options

When it comes to air compressor hire, there cannot be a one size fits all approach. A company worth investing in, is one that offers you a flexible, turnkey approach. At Goscor Compressed Air Systems, we offer a variety of rental periods to choose from like daily, weekly, and monthly rentals including the option for long-term rental periods too.

#4 – Track Record

A company that has stood the test of time, is one that you can trust. It means that company has been around long enough to weather many storms, with a client base that is solid and strong. Goscor Compressed Air Systems is a proud member of The Goscor Group of Companies and has an impeccable track record of sales, rentals, parts, servicing, finance and after-sale excellence.

How To Choose An Air Compressor That Fits Your Business Needs?

When deciding what type of air compressor is right for your business, it’s important to first-of-all know what air compressors are out there and what each is intended for. Let’s take a brief look at the types of air compressors available from Goscor Compressed Air Systems and the benefits of each.

Portable Compressors

Portable air compressors are sought-after thanks to their mobile ability. The air compressor itself usually uses a rotary screw mechanism which provides you with compressed air by moving a piston up and down. Mobile air compressors (whether big or small) are mounted on a trailer-like base with wheels to be towed along to a work site or job.

Piston Compressors

A piston compressor is one of the most common types of compressors used in heavy-duty industries. Using the principle of displacement, these types of compressors use a piston (which moves rapidly up and down) to create pressure in an enclosed tank. The pressurised air or gas is then transferred into kinetic energy that is used to cut, mould, or bend a variety of materials.

Screw Compressors

Screw compressors are efficient, reliable, easy to operate and require low maintenance intervals. Screw air compressors use positive displacement to compress gas that can be used as energy for industrial and manufacturing applications. The screw compressor design is known to be reliable and versatile as well as efficient and flexible.

Silobass Compressors

Silobass air compressors have gained popularity in recent times for their pneumatic transportation in silobass trucks or stationary applications. These types of compressors offer two drive options – electric or diesel – and come with a specially developed valve system.

Why Consider Renting An Air Compressor For Your Business?

When deciding what type of compressor you need, ask yourself:

  1. What is the requirement or application that I need for the compressor?
  2. Do I need the compressor to be mobile or stationary?
  3. Do I need the compressor to operate with a certain power outage?
  4. Do I have any specific requirements for the job?
