When it comes to compressed gas products, many business owners and managers prefer buying new ones. Many times, this is due to a gap in their understanding of the benefits of the rebuilding process or even that rebuilt units are available. What are these benefits? What does a compressor rebuilding involve? This post discusses how a rebuilt acetylene gas compressor can be an asset to a business.

Features of a Compressor Rebuild Service

A compressor reconditioning service may differ across various manufacturers. The following are common features of a rebuild service from International industrial gases ltd.

  • The oil in the compressor is completely drained.
  • The paint and any residue build up are removed from the bare compressor unit.
  • The compressor is disassembled and all critical parts are removed, until the bare casting remains.
  • All isolated parts are visually inspected for wear and tear. External and internal parts cleaning is conducted, and all parts are again inspected.
  • The oil drain is moved to another area to make any future service easier and faster, and internal areas are painted with primer coating.
  • Components are reviewed and replaced if necessary which include; condensate traps, coils, and piping. Relief valves are often replaced.
  • In the next step, the compressor unit is rebuilt and equipped with quality parts.
  • After rebuilding, the compressor is tested for oil and gas leaks as well as operating performance. If a leak or other discrepancy is detected, the assembling expert rectifies them prior to certifying the unit as ready for shipment.
