1. Drain receiver tanks
A sudden increase in condensate can indicate a more serious problem with your system.
2. Use heat trace tape
Heat trace tape won't work without power supplied to it. If your plant is shut down over Christmas, be sure to drain all the water from the lines.
3. Adjust louvres
Thermostatically controlled louvres are highly recommended. Otherwise, you'll need to manually adjust them.
4. Use heaters
Keeping the lubricant warm prevents cold starts. Cold starts cause wear and tear on the motor and airend, and in some cases, catastrophic failure.
5. Maintain separators and drains.
Separators, valves, and drains are susceptible to moisture. Proper maintenance will keep valves from sticking and condensate from freezing.
