115,000 run hours on original air-end

One of our Hereford customers is still reliably running their 2005 Worthington RLR 1500AM7 screw compressor which has now run for a remarkable 115,000 hours on its original Air-end and motor. Sold new and regularly serviced by us this has proven how important it is to correctly size your compressor, regularly maintain it using genuine spares parts and oils and install it in a clean, dry and well ventilated environment. This particular installation also benefits from a stable, continuous air demand from the production machinery 24 hours per day/7 days per week, therefore avoiding many stop/starts and cooling down periods and so ensures that the lubricating oil remains hot and in good condition between oil changes. It will be interesting to see how many more hours this remarkable machine can clock up.
