Investments in compressed air solutions are such big-ticket purchases. To maximise return on investment, these pieces of equipment must be kept running at maximum capacity, 24/7/365. Unexpected downtime can be extremely costly as loss of output has a direct, negative impact on revenues.

It is thus no surprise that today every compressor owner expects 100% uptime. To increase uptime and maximise production efficiency, one must choose the highest reliability equipment and then implement an appropriate maintenance programme to keep that equipment running at peak performance.

However, equipment maintenance is not the whole story when it comes to compressor uptime and the consequent improvement to the bottom line; fitting genuine parts is equally important in giving that compressor a much longer life cycle. Parts availability is also key, and this is a key parameter in our business; downtime, especially due unavailability of parts, is out of question
