Intercooler Repair and Maintenance

Dirty or aged intercoolers can make it seem like your compressor is working harder but producing less air. These intercoolers increase air temperature and decrease air density, resulting in reduced efficiency range or turndown. Heat and humidity can exacerbate the situation and further compromise the compressor’s capacity. Ultimately, all factors create the perfect environment for a surge. This occurs when inlet flow is unable to overcome discharge pressures from the compressor. Compressors that experience surges operate in a state of aerodynamic instability, which can be harmful to machine components.

By following scheduled maintenance guidelines, FS-Compression Pittsburgh offers assistance with intercooler maintenance or replacement. We can help return your aged or fouled intercooler to its original pressure, efficiency, and capacity. At FS-Compression Pittsburgh, we have a section within the manufacturing plant dedicated to cooler repairs. This is to ensure the best quality work possible for your intercooler.
