How do I service my Blackmer Compressor?

Blackmer Compressor Maintenance

Oil-free reciprocating compressors like those manufactured by Blackmer are straight forward to work on. Many of these machines are used in applications with flammable and/or corrosive gases making compressor maintenance all the more important.  Issues such as leaking rod packing can result in these hazardous gases escaping into the atmosphere creating a dangerous environment for personnel and other equipment.  Ensuring the good working condition of these seals could prevent a serious problem.

Why do maintenance on a Blackmer compressor?

Many of the compressor repairs of rebuilds that we do are directly related to the lack of routine maintenance.  Yet most of the gas compressor maintenance can be completed in a matter of a few hours when you know what to do. The recommended inspections and replacements items required in a Blackmer Compressor maintenance routine are listed in the IOM Manuals that come with your Blackmer gas compressor. Performing scheduled service and maintenance on your Blackmer compressor will ensure the highest possible performance and life span.  Worn piston rings and valves reduce the amount of compression and capacity of the machine and cause the units to overheat, potentially resulting in a catastrophic failure.

Blackmer Compressor Training

Even with the best compressor service and maintenance routines, sometimes machines break.  When they do, it is handy to have trained personnel on staff who can quickly diagnose the problem and fix the equipment properly. S&S Technical, Inc. provides training and technical expertise for your Blackmer compressors.  When you send in a compressor for repair or service, send a few of your technicians along. We will breakdown your equipment and teach them how to rebuild your compressor and they will become skilled at routine Blackmer compressor maintenance.

The cost of unscheduled shut-downs can be astronomical.  Couple that with the elevated repair costs or even replacement costs of an emergency and the investment in spare parts, spare equipment and compressor training is just a drop in the bucket.

Investing in spare parts, maintenance and compressor training provides your team with the tools necessary to keep your equipment running longer and more efficiently.

S&S Technical maintains an extensive parts inventory and provide complete compressor rebuild and recertification services for your equipment.  For more information, please contact Jim Zuccarell in the office 678-250-9507 or by email
