Service and repair for industrial air compressors

IPS single-source capabilities cover industrial air compressors. Bundle these services with our work on electric motors, other rotating assets, and power distribution systems.

We provide technical field services and in-shop remanufacturing for the following:

  • Centrifugal air compressors
  • Axial air compressors
  • Rotary screw air compressors
  • Vane air compressors
  • Reciprocating air compressors

Running compressors 24/7 in harsh environments with airborne contaminants requires forward-leaning maintenance. Early detection and resolution of problems — excess vibration, heat buildup, air and oil leaks — can prevent costly unplanned downtime.

Predictive and preventive maintenance for compressors

IPS field service technicians complete comprehensive testing during planned outages. This sets the baseline for predictive and preventive maintenance.

We customize our services for operating conditions, application requirements, and asset criticality. IPS field services for compressors include:

  • Teardown, inspection, cleaning, and parts replacement
  • Air and oil filters — Inspection and replacement as needed
  • Lubrication — Inspection and analysis
  • Bearing inspection, lubrication, and replacement
  • Belt tensioning and replacement
  • Compressor stage replacement
  • Vibration analysis
  • Dynamic balancing
  • Motor circuit evaluation (MCE)
  • Operation deflection shape & modal analysis
  • Thermography (IR) analysis

IPS technicians can resolve compressor issues on-site with rebalancing, bearing replacement, and lubrication programs. They work closely with our engineers to resolve failure modes for legacy equipment on-site.

In-shop remanufacturing for air compressors

Recurring failure may require compressor replacement or remanufacturing for the application.

Our engineers, veteran technicians, and machinists can remanufacture to exceed OEM specifications.

We handle the heavy machine work to upgrade rotating assemblies with veteran metalworkers who hold close tolerances on fit and finish.

IPS improves compressor reliability and energy efficiency with the following services:

  • New base design and fabrication
  • Shaft replacement
  • Updated piston rod assemblies, seals, and bearings
  • ASME-certified welding
  • Heat recovery system installation
  • Air conditioning and refrigeration compressor parts repair or rebuild

VFD & IIoT solutions for compressed air systems

IPS now combines the energy savings of VFDs with the next-generation condition-based monitoring of IIoT technology. We can develop solutions for bolt-on drives and packaged VFD compressors.

These compressor solutions improve process reliability and cut energy costs for a rapid return on investment.

The value of industry-specific experience

We have decades of industry-specific experience with harsh-duty environments. Our technicians and engineers specialize in process equipment that runs 24/7.

This experience includes:

  • Cement & aggregates
  • Food & beverage
  • Hospitals & healthcare     
  • Mining — Surface, and underground
  • U.S. Navy
  • Oil & gas
  • Power generation
  • Pulp & paper
  • Wastewater treatment

IPS single-source capabilities address electric motors, generators, rotating machinery, and power distribution systems. This streamlines your vendor management and gives you a trusted advisor for improving process reliability and energy efficiency.
