Only a select few companies have the expertise to provide airend services, and Global Cynax proudly stands the best one among them. When it comes to servicing or refurbishing the airend of a screw air compressor, meticulous attention to detail and adherence to specific steps are paramount to ensure a complete restoration. The airend, being the crucial component of a screw compressor, requires accurate diagnosis to identify any primary issues or problems before proceeding with the appropriate servicing. Any lack of precision in this task can result in significant damage to both the airend and the compressor unit. Fortunately, at Global Cynax, our team of skilled engineers boasts an impressive track record of successfully revitalizing problematic airends, effectively bringing them back to a like-new operational condition. Over the years, Global Cynax has successfully completed over 100+ airend refurbishment jobs encompassing a wide range of makes and models.
Global Cynax follows a systematic approach when performing airend refurbishment services. Here is an outline of the steps involved, from the moment the uninstall airend at client’s site to its reinstallation.
Pre-Visit Assessment: Upon receipt of the work order, a member of Global Cynax’s engineering team visits the client’s site to conduct a visual inspection and evaluate the current condition of the compressor. This visit serves as a foundation for devising a service plan and determining the necessary steps for the refurbishment process.
Preparation and Airend Disassembly: During this stage, the team gathers all the essential tools, equipment, and replacement parts required for the refurbishment. If available, they refer to the client’s service manual or documentation specific to the compressor model. Experienced senior engineers carefully disassemble the airend from the compressor, documenting each step and capturing pictures if necessary to facilitate reassembly. This involves removing the outer casing and any obstructing components. Global Cynax then transports the disassembled airend from the client’s site to their workshop using their own pickup service.
Thorough Cleaning: Once the airend reaches the workshop, the primary task involves a meticulous cleaning of all components, including the rotor, housing, bearings, seals, and associated parts. The engineers employ appropriate cleaning agents and tools to effectively remove dirt, debris, and old lubricants. They exercise caution to avoid unintentional damage to delicate parts during the cleaning process.
Inspection: The next step is a comprehensive inspection of all components to identify signs of wear, damage, or degradation. The engineers carefully examine for scoring, pitting, cracks, or excessive clearances. Critical dimensions are measured and compared to manufacturer specifications. Any excessively worn parts are promptly replaced.
Parts Replacement: Following the inspection, the engineers compile a list of replacement items, which is then sent to Global Cynax’s store to obtain the necessary materials specific to the job. Global Cynax prioritizes the use of genuine OEM parts sourced from authorized vendors in Singapore, China, India, and Germany. In cases where OEM spares are unavailable, high-quality aftermarket components may be used as suitable alternatives. Notably, genuine SKF bearings, for which Global Cynax is authorized, are always employed for the main component bearings.
Reassembly: Once all the components are prepared for reassembly, the engineers follow the reverse disassembly sequence to meticulously rebuild the airend, ensuring the use of appropriate torque settings for fasteners and maintaining proper alignment of the components. The reassembled airend is then transported back to the client’s site. The engineers refer to the service manual for specific assembly procedures or lubrication requirements.
Lubrication: After reassembly, the recommended lubricant specified in the manufacturer’s guidelines is applied to the airend. Proper lubrication is critical for screw compressors and should adhere to the service manual’s specifications. It is important to ensure that the lubricant reaches all necessary areas and is evenly distributed.
Testing and Adjustments: Once the airend is reassembled and deemed to be in proper condition, a test run is initiated for a specified minimum duration. If this initial test run is successful, the machine proceeds to a more extended operation to verify proper functioning, smooth rotation, and the absence of abnormal noises or vibrations. Parameters such as pressure, temperature, and other relevant factors are closely monitored to ensure they fall within the expected ranges.
Post-Service Maintenance: Upon completion of the airend service, it is recommended to follow any additional maintenance tasks recommended by the manufacturer. This may involve tasks such as filter replacement, oil analysis, belt adjustments, or other routine maintenance procedures to ensure continued optimal performance.
