An oil lubricated air compressor draws air into a storage tank with a screw that requires oil to keep the production process running smoothly with maximum efficiency. The oil injected in the compression chamber keeps the system cool by dissipating the heat and acting as a lubricant to lower the friction between the moving parts. Oil lubricated screw air compressors/sometimes called pressure lubricated air compressors, are efficient, reliable, quieter, and last longer. Their ability to work quietly makes them effective for various pneumatic tools and accessories. Oil-lubricated screw air compressors are best suited for industries that do not have stringent requirements for maintaining air quality. The type of oil flooded air compressor suitable for you depends on the application. There are different oil lubricated air compressors, and each has different properties suited to specific jobs.

Oil Lubricated Compressor Maintenance Tips
Oil lubricated air compressors are commonly used in various industries for generating compressed air. Proper maintenance of these compressors is essential to ensure their efficiency, longevity, and safe operation. Here are some maintenance tips to keep your oil lubricated compressor in optimal condition:
Regular Oil Checks: Check the compressor’s oil level frequently. Low oil levels can cause excessive friction and lead to premature wear of components. Be sure to use the recommended type and grade of oil specified by the manufacturer.
Oil Changes: Regularly change the compressor’s oil as per the manufacturer’s guidelines. This ensures the oil’s lubricating properties remain effective and prevents contaminants from building up.
Air Filter Inspection and Replacement: The air intake filter prevents dust, debris, and other contaminants from entering the compressor’s system. Check the air filter regularly, clean it, and replace it if it’s damaged or clogged. A clogged filter can restrict airflow and decrease the compressor’s efficiency.
Cooling System Maintenance: The compressor’s cooling system is essential to prevent overheating. Clean the cooling fins and ensure proper airflow to dissipate heat effectively. Additionally, check for any coolant leaks and address them promptly.
Inspect Belts and Hoses: Check the condition of the belts and hoses that drive the compressor. Replace any worn-out or damaged belts and hoses to maintain smooth operation.
Drain Condensate: Condensation can accumulate in the compressor’s tank and lines. Drain the condensate regularly to prevent corrosion and water damage to internal components.
Professional Services from ELGi: While some maintenance tasks can be performed in-house, it’s advisable to have an authorised technician from ELGi conduct periodic inspections and servicing of your oil injected air compressor. They can identify potential issues early on and address them appropriately. Schedule an appointment with our experts and get your compressed checked.
