When buying used rotary air compressors, always look at the number of hours on the compressor. Generally, rotary screw air compressors require a major overhaul around 50-70,000 hours on the airend, which includes replacing the bearings and realigning the rotors. A normal airend rebuild can be around $2,500 to $10,000, all depending on the brand and size (don’t forget you’ll also need to replace the lubricant and filters in a rebuild). When buying a used air compressor, see if the seller completed a preventative maintenance on it, this includes changing the oil and related filters. If not, this could be a $1,000 adder. Their is a reason people trade in compressors. The majority of the time, they had issues and were tired of investing a..

Reduced Voltage Starting This technique of starting the motor wired in a Wye connection, and later switching to a Delta Run connection, will dramatically reduce the current demand on a power distribution system. In areas where utility power is limited or over burdened, this system can reduce brown outs and severe voltage drops when a motor is started. The Wye Start/Delta Run method is not new to the industry. It is used on a limited basis in the US, and more widely used in European countries. Sometimes the method is mandatory on large motors. By using the Wye Start/Delta Run method, customers can achieve lower starting current demand. This starting method will minimize current demand during starting and reduce the impa..
