  • TO WARM DOWN AGAIN

    Well it must be warm here today about every half hour the compresser is shuting down low air pressure so it's hasn't been a very productive day. It's one of those hurry up and wait. Is it warm at your plant? Do any of you have your very own air supply?

          Its about 75 deg in here right now. Outside though, 100 deg. Can't complain a whole lot.

            I have my own air supply, but I am in a little different situation then you. This is an independent ISO certified lab. We did add a larger storage tank even though we are using a screw compressor, just so we wouldn't over work the compressor. And we installed a small dryer just on the other side of the wall from the machine, this way it gets the dryest possible air. Seems to work well this way and even when we have had these hot hot days we have had no problems.

                  We're here at 68 degrees, 45% humidity and obviously the airco is holding out. We have no windows and an inside cafetaria. So it's always a surprise to see what kind of weather it is when you get out. At the machine, we can't even hear thunderstorms come by. Light-less and clueless. Just another day like every other one....

                        Sad isn't it. I certainly feel like a mushroom. Look like one too.

                          By air, do you mean Air Compressor, with air bearings that the CMM moves on or Air Conditioning for the lab that it is run in? A real Inspection lab stays at 68deg +/- 3 deg. so that sounds like a poor statement.
                          When in doubt, post code. A second set of eyes might see something you missed.

                              We just moved into our new facility about 2 weeks ago. The first week the room held 70 deg. and the humidity was 38%. The middle of the last week the humidity jumped to 60% the temp has remained the same. The air vents are pooring water at least twice a day because of the condensation, the tiles around the vents are turning brown. The room is great (1300 Sq ft & 500 sq ft for storage) but we've got to get a dehumidifier or something in here. Any suggestion.
                              I might not love my job, but I love the ones it feeds!

                                I have two questions for all you guys and gals with air bearing machines.

                                Do you shut down your machine(s) overnight or over the weekend....
