When most people think of their utilities, they envision electricity, water, and natural gas.

However, there’s a fourth utility that’s equally important.

Compressed air is easy to take for granted until it’s no longer available for products like:

Plus a plethora of other devices are directly powered by compressed air to properly function.

Like any machine, a compressor will eventually develop operational issues.

At that point, it must be either replaced or overhauled by a viable professional.

Addressing Your Rotary Screw Compressor

Rotary screw compressors are necessary to provide the modern amenities to which we’ve grown accustom.

Unfortunately, supply and demand makes these crucial machines relatively expensive.

It can cost you tens of thousands of dollars to replace a compressor, and having a screw compressor overhaul is much more affordable.

Do I Need a Compressor Overhaul?

Rotary screw compressors are the most common variety found in the industrial sector, because they consume very little energy.

These devices are designed to run non-stop for years on end. The constant use can quickly wear the compressor’s internal parts, leading to a number of different issues.

Dangers of a Malfunctioning Compressor

Rotary screws are the driving forces in the compressor, and they’re subsequently worked harder than other parts.

An overhaul typically consists of repairing these crucial components, but there are other issues that sometimes need to be addressed.

Sometimes something simple can cause the compressor to malfunction when it’s still in relatively good shape.

In these instances, you may need maintenance as opposed to an overhaul.

At Berg Industrial Service, we understand when a compressor needs to be overhauled and when it should be replaced.

We can provide a trained professional to inspect your faulty compressor and suggest the best course of action.

If your used screw compressor is a good candidate for an overhaul, we ensure all disconnects and lockouts are properly engaged.

We then ensure that all trapped air has been forced from the unit, using the factory parts and service manual.

After you’ve shipped the unit to us, there are a number of different parts to be tested and/or replaced.
