With a full range of coverage options available, service provider inspects your air compressor for wear, damage and potential failure. Below are three different types of Air Compressor Service Agreements and their key benefits:
  1. OEM Service Schedules – Offer compressed air maintenance according to scheduled service intervals. Includes 46-point compressor inspection, filters and fluid.
  2. Annual Maintenance Agreement— Sakoon offers annual service agreements to relive plant managers from hassles of air compressor maintenance so that they may focus on production.
  3. Trouble Shoot Plan— System Failure – Call the Professionals!
Should your system ever fail, customers can contact Sakoon specialist advisors directly on the Service Hotline +92 21 111 727 777. They will keep downtimes to a minimum, make sure that your machines are repaired professionally and minimize repair costs wherever possible.

Service Kits

Screw compressor service kits are a real source for a longer lifetime of air compressor and less energy costs. As your workspace is equipped with a high-class compressor, it deserves the best service and parts. If you are tempted to use parts that merely resemble the original ones, keep in mind that in the long run, using non-original parts will cost you more and decrease the lifetime of your compressor.
Only proper maintenance using original parts and kits ensures reliable, energy-efficient performance and long lifetime of air compressors. As original parts were designed for your compressor, they are a 100% fit. Not just in terms of size but as integral parts of a system where all components work together efficiently.

Key benefits:

  • Everything you need to maintain your screw compressor is in one single kit
  • Cost effective solution (Service Kits are 5 to 10% lower in price than separate parts)
  • Assurance of high quality components
  • Easy to use
  • Higher efficiency
  • Service kits are available at our official service organization and partners
  • Low internal logistic costs
  • Longer lifetime of your screw compressor

Fluid Analysis 

Fluids are the life-blood of air compressors. Fluids keep bearings lubricated. Fluids and coolants remove the heat of compression and keep your air compressor operating smoothly. Regular fluid sampling and analysis informs you if fluid needs to be changed, if intake air is contaminated, if fluids have been mixed or if sever wear is occurring. Key benefits:
  • Current status of your lubricant and equipment
  • Positive input to determine maintenance schedule
  • Detailed history of lubricant performance
  • Better control of maintenance expenditures

Trend Tracker 

Conditioned monitoring and data management is playing a key role in the life of all equipment. More and more companies are realizing the benefits of preventative and predictive maintenance practices. Trending the performance of key components over time can provide advanced indication of imminent equipment failure. Key benefits:
  • Helps reduce unplanned plant shutdowns
  • Maximizes the life of your air compressor
  • Detailed history of lubricant performance
  • Repair before failure fixes typically are less costly
  • Minimizes downtime

A VSD Compressor Doesn’t Save You Money

VSD (Variable Speed / Frequency Drive) Compressors

The energy savings were huge… of course. The pay-back time would be a few months, or days, or less.. for sure!

Stop here!

Yes, a VSD compressor can save huge amounts of energy (and thus money), but only if a propoer homework is one, make some calculations and use your common sense.

[For those in the dark: a VSD or variable-speed compressor uses a frequency drive to match the compressor speed (and thus capacity) to the amount of compressed air needed. This as opposed to 'load-unload' machines that runs at a fixed speed but 'loads' and 'unloads' between a minimum and maximum pressure).

And IF a VSD compressor is a good idea in your situation, buy the right size of VSD compressor.

Here's when a VSD compressor will save you money: when it runs at less than 80% speed for most of the time and when it runs continuously (daily).

In these cases, the cost-savings can be huge. Tens of thousands of dollars per year in energy …
