Air Compressor Troubleshooting Guide

Your compressor is down. You want it fixed. Fast - Many people don't realize how important compressed air is for their factory, until their compressor breaks down.

Compressor problems can quickly result in hours (if not days) of production downtime and a loss of thousands of dollars per hour.

Even 'small' problems like a water or oil in the air can have tremendous consequences when they contaminate your products or ruin your machines.

Getting Help with your Compressor Problems Can Be Difficult

Not everyone has access to reliable, quick, professional support from a compressor company.

They can take hours, or even days, before visiting you... while you are stressing out over lost production hours, deadlines, angry customers, and things like that.

In other parts of the world, a good service technician is simply not available within a few hundred miles.

Introducing - Air Compressor Troubleshooting Guide

I have created this troubleshooting guide, to help YOU with your air compressor problems.

Let me guide you through troubleshooting the problem, step by step.

And I will prove you that troubleshooting air compressors isn't hard, or expensive! You can do it too!

Use the included easy-to-follow flowcharts to pinpoint the exact cause of the most common air compressor problems.

Troubleshoot your compressor yourself in minutes!

I help maintenance managers to quickly fix their air compressor problems

Are you a plant manager? Maintenance technician? In control of / responsible for the air compressors in your plant?

How much does it cost your company to lose 2 to 4 hours…or possibly even a whole day of work?

If you call for help, a single service call can quickly cost you $500. And this is in addition to the hours of downtime while waiting for the man to arrive.

(An average compressor service technician will cost you at least $90 per hour…bare minimum. Plus they need time and petrol to drive to your site while valuable work time is being lost.)

In other parts of the world, a service technician is simply not available! You're on your own!

My Air Compressor Troubleshooting Guide is here to help you.

Now you can have this easy-to-use guide, bonus printable flowcharts, all for the cost of significantly less than one service call.

You will have your compressor up and running again in no time!

I am very happy with your manual. It's great for troubleshooting any type of machine. Your manual helped me figure out what was wrong with a machine that others had given up on.

I didn't have any issues with our compressor... I mainly bought it as a learning guide as I am inexperienced with compressors. I looked over the book and liked the troubleshooting flow charts. I believe I will be able to use them in the future. Overall I thought the guide was good and worth the money.

I purchased a copy of your air compressor trouble shooting book. It is excellent. You have put a lot of home work into this whole program and it is of great benefit. Many thanks

I was desperate enough to try something that will help the factory from being down for long. As a result of buying the guide, we got access to you (Cas), which basically is what helped us troubleshoot the problem. We tried what you told us in an email and it worked. Thank you! For individuals, it may be a little expensive, for us it is worth it.

I am the owner of a compressor company as well and I want to COMPLIMENT YOU ON YOUR PUBLICATIONS. It helped me out on many occasions as I can not always be with my NEW YOUNG Technicians all the time and hold their hands and when they have to "FLY SOLO" . Now they have the freedom of using your Guide as learning course and making mistakes and FIXING by yourself is the only way to build confidence and gain knowledge and it also ensures NO COME BACKS due to inexperienced technicians as they have the tools to do the JOB.

All oil-injected rotary screw compressors have the same working principle, same parts and same problems. Yes, some details will vary but in general - they are all alike.

For this reason, my guide works for ALL oil-injected rotary screw air compressor.
