FAQs

How do I prolong the productivity of my vacuum pump/compressor?

Scheduled maintenance and servicing keeps compressed air systems running smoothly. By keeping up-to-date with the unit’s service schedule, it will extend its life span.

How do I keep up-to-date with the maintenance schedule?

OPTION 1 – Preventative Maintenance Schedule: Vacuum & Pressure Services take responsibility for the maintenance schedule. We work according to an agreed upon timetable to ensure the miniumin amount of disruption possible. We remember and we remind you!

OPTION 2 – Internal Housekeeping Checks: Monitor the hour metre until it flashes “service” or keep accurate records of running, units should be serviced every 3,000 hours. Call Vacuum & Pressure Services to book your service otherwise the unit may seize and you're in danger of production downtime.

Is there anything else I need to do to look after my vacuum pump/compressor?

YES, check oil levels daily on all vacuum pumps and compressors, where required.

Can I use any oil to ‘top-up’ my vacuum pump/compressor?


No, only use the correct graded oil. The wrong oil will damage the unit and reduce its life span and efficency.

How can I tell which grade oil to use in my vacuum pump/ compressor?

Contact us for a recommendation and we can supply you with the correct graded oil for your unit.
