Pressure Testing

The law requires that pressure vessels must conform to certain criteria as detailed in the SANS 347. One of these criteria is that the vessel is inspected and pressure tested every 36 months by an approved inspection authority. We provide these services to our clients by doing pressure testing under the supervision of an AIA.

Compressor Servicing

Compressors require regular maintenance due to the moving parts in the unit. This not only limits breakdowns and loss of production but also increases the lifespan of the unit if it is done by qualified technicians using high-quality replacement parts. This might include Oil, Air Filter, Oil Filter, Oil Separator, Belts, etc.

Refurbishment/Compressor Overhauls

Every 20 000 – 40 000 hours, model-specific, compressors are due for refurbishments due to the bearings reaching the end of their life. (The larger the unit the earlier it needs maintenance) Doing these preventative maintenance repairs on your unit can help increase its lifespan to double if not left till after damage has occurred. Speak to our Technical Department to find out when your compressor is due for it’s overhaul.

Dryer Servicing

The dryer performs a critical part of production by cooling the air to the point of condensation so that the moisture in the compressed air can be drained allowing clean dry air to enter the factory. This not only increases Pneumatic tool life but also enhances the quality of product being manufactured. But due to seasonal changes the unit requires a service every 3 – 6  months. We have fully trained and qualified technician who are able to perform the service on all dryers. Speak to our Technical Department to get a quotation and have your dryer serviced.
