Air Compressor Service was born as a service company and continues to provide the best in professional service, repair and overhauls for most major makes and models of industrial air compressors. We serve customers ranging from manufacturing and hospitals, to fire departments, government, dairies and food processors. If your compressor needs attention, Air Compressor Service can help. We are licensed, bonded and insured.
Performing regularly scheduled preventative maintenance (PM) services on the components of your compressed air system is vital to insuring your system performs at its optimum level, keeping warranties in effect, maintaining equipment reliability, and producing the greatest return on your investment over the long run. Neglecting routine PM services increases your risk of costly breakdowns and shortens the life expectancy of your compressed air equipment.
To help our customers stay on top of their PM requirements, Air Compressor Service developed a proprietary data base system that tracks all maintenance and repair services we perform on your compressed air equipment and projects PM dates based upon periodic hour readings and/or dates of the last service and manufacturers’ recommended PM schedules. As the date of your service nears, we will call you to confirm that you are ready to have the PM services performed. We will then assure that the required parts are on hand and call you again to schedule a date for the service. Our customers never have to worry about remembering to have their systems serviced. We take care of that for you.
Another important aspect of our preventative maintenance services in our free oil analysis program. We periodically test oil using an instant results total acid number (T.A.N.) test or take an oil sample and send it to a laboratory for spectrographic analysis. Spectrographic analysis will confirm whether your oil is suitable for continued use, detect signs of unusual internal wear, and help maintain some warranties. We offer this service free for selected customers, depending on the type of compressor and its operating environment.
Repairs and Overhauls
Air Compressor Service repairs and overhauls most major brands of industrial air compressors from 5 through 300-horsepower. One of our experienced service technicians will examine your air compressor to determine the cause of its malfunction, order parts and perform the repairs on-site or in our shop, whatever is most appropriate for the circumstances.
If your industrial air compressor needs overhauling, we will quote you the cost and time required to complete a standard overhaul, with the proviso that disassembly of the compressor may reveal other internal parts that require replacement too. In any case you will be kept apprised of the situation and asked to approve additional recommended repairs.
Even with the best preventative maintenance program compressed air equipment does occasionally break down, usually at the worst possible time, it seems. We understand that breakdowns can be expensive in terms of lost production and idle workers. Therefore, we make every effort to respond rapidly to your emergency breakdown.
If you have an after-hours emergency breakdown, call us at 425-290-1888, listen to the prompts and select our emergency voice mailbox. Record your name, your company name, a phone number where you can be reached, and a description of your problem as best as you know it.
Our phone system will alert one of our technicians that there is a message in the emergency voice mailbox. He will retrieve it, contact you and arrange to have a service technician respond to your emergency. Of course, overtime rates apply for after-hours and weekend work.
Electrical power companies in Western Washington routinely have funds available to help businesses upgrade to more energy efficient equipment as a conservation measure. Air Compressor Service has extensive experience and expertise in helping companies evaluate whether their compressed air system is a candidate for a power company grant (typically for 50% of the new equipment cost).
Air Compressor Service has a 100% perfect record of our energy grant applicants achieving actual kilowatt hour savings that exceed estimates. This means that if we tell you that you can save X number of dollars per year on your power bills, you can be confident that figure is conservative and your actual savings will be higher.
What’s involved? First we insure that your current system is operating at a reasonably efficient level and evaluate the appropriateness of your equipment for your type of operation. Next we install data loggers to record one week of power used to produce compressed air. This raw data is then analyzed and charted by a special computer program and compared to the energy consumption specifications of the proposed new equipment. The difference between the energy consumption of your current system and that of the new system will determine whether your upgrade project is a good candidate for a grant and the likely size of the grant.
If you decide to apply for a grant, we will assist you with the application process. Local power companies typically will have a decision back to you within 60-90 days.
As attractive as an energy grant may be, it is important to remember that the greatest savings comes from your reduced power consumption. Also, other side benefits are often realized, such as improved reliability or improved air quality.
