The Importance of Valve Maintenance
July 04, 2019

One of the most important components of an industrial air compressor in Québec to monitor and maintain on a regular basis is the valves. Properly maintained valves result in even and effective distribution of compressed air. While compressor valves are built for durability, they may eventually have to be replaced due to wear and tear.


Valve replacement can be costly, however, so it’s in your best interest to have preventative maintenance and repairs performed on your air compressor valves to avoid this.


Steps to Take to Prevent Valve Failure

Valve maintenance is especially pertinent for compressors operating in harsh conditions, which could lead to operational failure more rapidly. Environmental conditions such as high temperatures, exposure to chemicals and a corrosive atmosphere all contribute to the breakdown of valves. Here are some preventative measures you can take to avoid valve failure in your industrial air compressor in Québec.


Monitor your valves and compressor system – While doing this, make sure to record information regarding the status of valves and other essential compressor components.


Pay attention to changes in temperature – Unexpected fluctuations in your compressor’s temperature may indicate a valve-related issue. Also, an overheated compressor shell is the result of a build-up of pressure in the compressor from a failed valve.


Pay attention to unusual noises – If a valve sounds like it’s active while the compressor system itself isn’t active, this indicates delayed completion of processes that should have occurred while the compressor was active.
