How to maintain a rotary screw compressor 

Estimated time to read: 5 minutes

A rotary screw compressor comprises rotors, a motor, oil vessel, fan, filters, and possibly an integrated dryer. Regardless of motor or type, these machines are designed to be durable and fairly self-sufficient. 

However, as with any compressed air machine, it's important to regularly monitor continuous air flow for maximum uptime. With Ceccato, there's optional control technology for enhanced maintenance.

Econtrol 6i & ICONS


When ordering a rotary screw compressor from Ceccato, you can receive Econtrol 6i multiple compressor control and ICONS monitoring. These tools provide advanced control and help keep your compressed air system running smoothly.

This added insight also aids with monitoring temperature to keep the motor as cool as possible. Maintaining a low motor heat is essential when running compressed air machinery.

More specifically, ICONS lets you know the current status of your air compressor to aid in reducing downtime. These solutions are beneficial in maximizing productivity and keeping your total cost of ownership at a minimum

Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts & service

If you're looking to keep your air compressor running smoothly, it's always best to use OEM parts. Whether you need replacement oil, lubricant, or a new filter, you'll want to make sure they're Ceccato certified.

Utilizing these parts will help expand the lifespan of your rotary screw air compressor. They'll also assist with keeping air pressure at its highest. In addition, when purchasing OEM parts, you'll benefit from authorized factory-trained professionals handling the service.
