Centrifugal Airend Rebuilding

When downtime becomes an issue, an airend exchange replacement is often the answer. The airend of a centrifugal compressor is responsible for compressing the air, so rebuilding it can reduce downtime and improve performance. California Air Compressors Company certified engineers will complete a full inspection and engineering evaluation of your centrifugal airend rebuild. We provide centrifugal air end services throughout San Diego, Los Angeles and surrounding cities.

When to Rebuild Your Centrifugal Airend

A proper maintenance program can help to overcome environmental, application, and operating condition factors. Knowing the best time to rebuild an operating airend can be determined by performing a routine analysis of oil samples, bearing vibration trends, bearing temperature trends, and airend temperature rise.

Incoming air needs to be free from all contamination and chemicals. Oil flooded rotary compressors mix incoming air with oil during the compression cycle. Oil sampling done at regular intervals helps to detect any contaminants or chemicals that are mixing with the oil and ultimately the air. Contaminated oil can damage the bearings and seals in the compressor air end.
