Air Compressor Short Cycling

If your air compressor comes on for a short burst then turns itself off… then starts cycling again your compressor is short cycling… We’ve just been through this problem with a couple of clients and I feel it’s important to share this with you.

Short Cycling is *almost* always a symptom of a deeper problem in your compressed air system. It is important that your technician finds the root cause – you need to know why and fix it. While your air compressor short cycles, you are paying a 20%-50% premium for compressed air. It becomes imperative for a well-run plant to find that cause and fix it.
