Keep Your Screws Tight!

  • To ensure your air compressor runs smoothly and quietly, simply keep all its screws, nuts, and bolts tight. As your compressor runs, each of these components is joggled and loosened; accordingly, you need only check and tighten these parts periodically to keep your machine performing smooth and quiet. Remember, regular maintenance is the key to high performance.
    Bear in mind, this tip also applies to all machines with moving parts. Keep those parts tight and maintained and you’ll ensure the best performance from your equipment.
