Time: 2017-09-01

If less oil sludge and carbon deposition inside the compressor, we can add half new lubricating oil, run the compressor for 15mins to 1 hours before adding full new oil for normal operation.

Before adding the new lubricating oil, drain all the old oil out.

Don’t mix different brands and different level lubrucating oil, in addition, please replace the oil filter, oil separator element together with the oil. Check the air filter, thermostat valve, and check valve before operation.

Keeps records for each maintenance, observe the oiliness, viscosity and color of lubricating oil regularly to judge whether it requires replacement.
