How Not to Use Your Air Compressor Filter

One of the problems that arises when people have machines, such as an air compressor machine, in their garage is that they are eventually going to try to find ways in which to use the machine incorrectly. No matter how many warnings are on them, people always find ways to do something which could lead to potential long term danger. One of the most common pieces of an air compressor machine which can be hazardous is used improperly is the air compressor filter.

Most of the time, the person who incorrectly uses the filter does so through no true fault of their own. They are thinking that what they want to do will be able to add to the benefits which are achieved through the use of the machine. With proper warning, that person will be able to see that this action will lead to disaster and should be avoided.

Those filters, such as the ones made by Ingersoll Rand compressor parts, are there to do one function: filter the air which is coming from the machine out into the air which other people breathe. The filters trap the dirt and debris before it is able to get into the air, which could cause long term effects, such as lung cancer from breathing in the deadly fumes. In the vast majority of cases, they perform well and cut down on the amount of unhealthy material in the air they release.

Some people see this as a chance to increase the smell of the air around them. To do this, they may either spray the filter with a pleasant smelling perfume or air freshener such as Febreeze or another such brand. This can lead to the filter being unable to perform its duty well and also increase the degree to which the filter can deteriorate. The air which is expelled is not supposed to be pleasant – it is supposed to be relatively clean enough for people to breathe.

If someone goes even further and puts a satchel of potpourri near their air compressor filter, then this could prove to be even worse. Now that person has just put something next to a machine which may cause it to catch on fire. If that happens, the entire shop or garage could be destroyed rather quickly. The area around the exhaust should be clear from any and all materials which could catch on fire to prevent this from happening.

Should you find one of these to be your problem, stop using your machine immediately. You will need to replace the filter with something such as an Ingersoll Rand compressor part so that you are able to continue to use the machine without danger. First, make sure to clean the machine with a damp rag to make sure that there are no remnants, especially if a spray was used.

Taking care of your air compressor can add life to its usage. Make sure to keep your machine clean at all times so that you won’t have to worry about constantly replacing the parts or any other dangers which may occur. Being proactive is better than being reactive in situations.
