Professional compressor: clean the air filter
Like many devices, compressors are equipped with air filters. Particularly because they are used in places where many fine particles pass, it is important to clean this air filter regularly. For doing this, all you require doing is spray compressed air on every single side of the filter to extract all the dirt.
Compressor maintenance: check the oil level
Here is one of the most important maintenance actions to perform on a compressor: check the oil level. For that you just have to make sure that the oil level in the crankcase is well above the indicated mark. If this happen not to be the case, you will need to top up the level using the oil suggested by the constructer of your compressor.
Change the compressor oil
Approximately every 100 hours of use of your professional compressor you will need to replace the crankcase oil. To change the oil, all you have to do is remove the plug and collect the used oil. Then replace it with new oil specially designed for your compressor model. Then replace the cap.
