|Preparation is Key to
a Successful and Trouble Free Rental Experience.
The best time to plan and
prepare for use of a rental compressed air system is
when the plant is operating normally. While that may
sound odd, it is very true. The preparation required to
receive, successfully install and begin to utilize
rental compressed air equipment becomes significantly
more challenging if it must be done DURING a compressed
The key elements in
preparing for a successful rental experience are:
– Area selected to set the equipment should be a stable
level hardpacked surface with adequate drainage.
Suitable clearance around the around the unit for
maintenance should be accounted for.
for Electric Motor Driven Rental – Properly sized
electrical disconnects or circuit breakers and power
feed for the equipment being rented will be required.
External power for heaters used in cold weather (usually
110/1/60) must be available as well.
–High capacity rental compressors (2,500 CFM and above)
are water cooled. When renting this type of equipment,
there will be a need for adequate cooling tower capacity
and appropriately sized supply/return cooling water
piping to the compressor. As an alternative plan,
self-contained cooling towers can be rented
Operating of the Rental System - Whether your rental
compressed air system has completely replaced your
normal system, or you are simply augmenting the normal
systems output, the rental equipment must be operated
and monitored. In particular, if compressed air demand
fluctuates, the rental equipment controls will need to
be able to react to changes in demand and system
pressure. As a general statement, the more advanced and
automatic the control system is, the better.
