Gardner Denver publishes free new guide on maintenance strategies for compressed air users

Industrial compressor and vacuum leader Gardner Denver has published a free new guide on the latest and most trusted predictive and preventative maintenance strategies that compressed air users can implement, to help save money, improve efficiencies and reduce downtime.

Available from, the guide considers how businesses have become increasingly wary of purchasing a compressed air system for a low upfront cost, only for maintenance issues to arise further down the line. With any initial savings lost to repairs, organisations are now focusing on the maintenance strategies that can help improve a system’s whole life costs.

The guide covers the insights that data analytics and Industry 4.0 can provide, as well as the benefits of using genuine spare parts and lubricants. It also provides an overview of the savings that are possible through identifying air leaks and by undertaking energy audits, as well as the benefits offered with local servicing.

Keith Atkinson, EMEAI Sales Manager at Gardner Denver, explains: “With UK industry using more than 20TWh of electricity every year to compress air, any steps that can help reduce energy costs while minimising the risk of downtime and maintenance issues are to be encouraged. We have developed this free new guide to address these issues in more detail, demonstrating how implementing the right predictive and preventative maintenance strategies can cut costs, improve operational efficiencies, limit downtime, increase productivity and deliver assured peace of mind.
