If the air compressor oil temperature is too high for a long time, the oil quality will deteriorate, so that the air compressor oil will not have the desired effect, will increase the wear of the equipment, and shorten the life of the equipment.
The main reasons for the high oil temperature of the air compressor are:
The ambient temperature is too high (mainly occurs in summer), the temperature of the circulating cooling water is high or the cooler is blocked; the outlet pressure is too high, etc.
Methods to control excessive oil temperature include:
1 For the reason for the high indoor ambient temperature in summer, we can ventilate the plant as much as possible. If the temperature is too high, we can also regularly use cooling water to flush the floor of the plant to cool down;
2 Take measures to reduce the circulating water temperature;
3 Normally, oil cooler blockage is also one of the reasons for the increase in oil temperature. Therefore, if the oil cooler is found to be blocked, it should be cleaned in time to ensure the cooling effect of the oil cooler and the normal operation of the equipment.
4 When the oil temperature is higher than 50°C for a long time and the circulating cooling water cannot reduce the oil temperature, a certain proportion of fresh tap water should be passed through the circulating cooling water to reduce the temperature of the cooling water or the oil. If the oil temperature cannot be lowered by passing the fresh tap water, the fresh tap water can be directly passed into the cooler system, but this time should not be too long, it should be between 1 and 6 days.
