Air Systems and Compressors for Woodshops

Air compressors are one of the most vital pieces of equipment in your woodshop. They are used for various reasons, such as running air tools or cleaning equipment. Thus, it is important to maximize their efficiency and maintain them well to avoid costly and unnecessary breakages.

Here are 3 simple ways to reduce problems that could occur, especially during this summer season:

Moisture: Did you know that over a summer month, you’ll have to remove at least 150 gallons of unwanted moisture in your air system due to high temperatures? Moisture wreaks havoc on your equipment, leading to unplanned downtime. Excess moisture in your air system can grow bacteria, lead to corrosion in piping and various compressor issues.  A very important reason to have zero moisture in your system is that it will cause your wood projects to warp, leaving you and your customers disappointed. To solve your moisture issues, you should invest in refrigerated dryer. Having a refrigerated dryer installed to your system will clean up your lines and keep your operations running efficiently. A refrigerated dryer is the standard choice if you are looking for a low maintenance solution.

Air Filters: Let's be serious, an woodworking shop isn't the cleanest place. There is constantly dust in the air. When your compressor is running, it is collecting the dust in the shop and pushing it through your compressed air system. A compressor with dust particles, oil and water droplets only make the compressor to work harder, raising your energy costs. With our coalescing air filters will save energy and protect your compressors and tools from harmful contaminants by effectively removing solid particles, water, oil, and aerosols from compressed air.

Lubricants: Air compressors or components overheating and air leakage... You can successfully avoid these issues by adding lubricant and monitoring levels in your compressor are extremely important in making sure that your air compressor is running as efficient as possible. Our All Season Select lubricant is a synthetic, all-temperature blend designed to increase efficiency, reduce wear, and prevent carbon build-up. It performs four times longer than petroleum-based lubricants. It is recommended 2,000 hours of service between lubricants change-out under normal operating conditions.
