Keep up to date with the latest news and developments from Kaeser.  Check out Kaeser’s blog “Kaeser Talks Shop” at http://kaesertalksshop.com.  This month’s topic will help you understand and determine ways to turn your air compressor into an energy source.

Kaeser recently installed a compressed air system for Gas Monkey Garage, the classic vehicle restoration shop featured on the Discovery Channel reality series Fast N’ Loud.

“Monkeys” Richard Rawlings and Aaron Kaufmann, who painstakingly restore vintage cars, had been dissatisfied with their old piston compressor. When they moved to their new Dallas location, they called on Kaeser to provide them with a more reliable and powerful compressed air system.

Learn more about the Gas Monkey Garage project on the official Kaeser site.

Kaeser air compressors sc Winter is here! If your compressor is located outside or inside in an unheated area, where the ambient temperature is less than 40 degrees Fahrenheit, you may need to winterize your system.

Below are 5 ways to winterize your compressed air system:

  1.  If the compressor is located outside, you may need to install a weather guard. You can install a roof and sides around the compressor, add an air curtain, or use a cold weather package.
  2. Insulate drains and condensate piping.
  3. Provide a heat source for the compressor. You want to make sure the oil temperature stays at least 40 degrees. (No open flame heaters!)
  4. Always check oil level, and add more if needed. (This is a good tip for anytime.)
  5. Make sure you are using the proper oil type for the compressor.
