Crew & required parts for assembly of Screw compressor.
Swing at location
The Drumheller Service Center received a call from Journey Resources to swing a Screw compressor.
The crew and required parts were assembled and we conducted the swing at location. As part of the process the Compressor Core was sent to our re-manufacturing department for rebuild and they posed the question:
Why did we change this unit out?
Was it due to high hours, was there a failure, because the original unit looked to be in good condition?
When we checked with the Customer they indicated their previous maintenance company told them that this unit would need to be changed out on a yearly basis and nobody ever questioned it, they just thought it was the nature of the beast.
Through collaborative conversation between the customer and NGC it was determined that with regular maintenance, filter changes, oil sampling, proper instruction and good operating performance curves, annual replacement of the compressor was not required. Journey have now ran this unit for approx. 3yrs with no issues and/or replacement of this compressor, saving them extra costs, and down time.
