Car wash

Automated car washes rely heavily on many pneumatic valves and actuators with high cycling rates for components like chemical (soap) applicators, wrap control arms and other mechanical components. The integrity of the lubrication and seals in these devices is absolutely critical to proper mechanical operation and through-put. This is certainly not unique to the car wash business. The same is true for all pneumatics.

Is something eating away at your productivity?

corrosion in compressed air system

Location and environment have a significant impact on the maintenance costs, reliability and longevity of your compressed air system. We’ve covered this topic a few times before but it’s worth repeating, especially when you have a great visual example with before and after photos.

Pass or fail?

A recent post on Pneumatic Tips shows the impact of oversizing when going from piston to rotary screw compressors. We've compared piston compressors to rotary screws several times, but this post presents an example illustrating the fact that proper sizing is an important factor when choosing an air compressor, not just what type of compressor it is.
