Predictive Maintenance (PdM)

In an age where operational efficiency and uptime are more than just buzzwords, it's crucial to go beyond traditional maintenance approaches. Welcome to the future of air compressor maintenance, where predictive analytics and real-time monitoring take center stage. CRU AIR + GAS introduces the BETTER Program, a groundbreaking initiative that harnesses the power of data and intelligent diagnostics to address the wear and tear of essential compressor components preemptively. Read on to discover how our program sets a new standard in Air Compressor Predictive Maintenance.

The Better Program: Air Compressor Predictive Maintenance by CRU AIR + GAS

At CRU AIR + GAS, we have always strived to be at the forefront of customer service and cutting-edge solutions. Our Preventive Maintenance or PM (our GOOD Program) offers essential, preventive maintenance for your air compressor's consumable parts. In contrast, Predictive Maintenance or PdM (our BETTER Program) includes all GOOD services and adds specialized predictive maintenance features.

Our Predictive Maintenance, or PdM, employs a strategic approach, leveraging data-driven insights to determine when specific components, such as valves and coolers, need attention. This ensures that your compressed air system predictive maintenance needs are met comprehensively.

  • Overhaul Minimum Pressure Valve: Maintenance ensures your compressor operates within safe pressure limits.
  •  Overhaul Thermostatic Valve: Fine-tuning to optimize temperature regulation within the system.
  •  Overhaul Load Valve and Overhaul Unload Valve: Regular upkeep to ensure load operations and unload operations are seamless, respectively.
  •  Overhaul Oil Stop Valve (where applicable): Specialized service to prevent unintended oil flow in your compressed air system.
  • Steam Wash Combo Cooler: A thorough cleaning to maintain the efficiency of your cooler.

With a focus on compressor valve repair, the BETTER Program adds a higher level of reliability by regularly servicing worn parts that are integral to your compressor’s operation. These components degrade as a function of the load on your compressor and the running hours.

Choose CRU AIR + GAS's BETTER Program for Predictive Maintenance

As industry leaders in air compressor predictive maintenance, we at CRU AIR + GAS are committed to providing value-driven solutions tailored to your needs. Selecting our BETTER Program offers advantages beyond essential preventative maintenance, elevating your compressed air system to a new level of reliability and efficiency.
