As an important power equipment in the industrial field, air compressors may encounter various faults during actual use, and pressure switch leakage is a common one.


1、 Analysis of the causes of air leakage in the pressure switch of the air compressor

Aging or damage of pressure switch seals: With the increase of usage time, the seals of pressure switches may lose their sealing performance due to aging or wear, leading to the occurrence of air leakage.

Improper installation of pressure switch: During the installation process, if the fastening screws of the pressure switch are not tightened or the installation position is incorrect, it may lead to poor sealing and result in air leakage.

Internal fault of pressure switch: Components such as membranes and springs inside the pressure switch may fail due to prolonged use, causing the switch to malfunction and leading to air leakage.

External factors such as environmental factors and improper operation may also affect the sealing performance of pressure switches, leading to air leakage.

2、 Treatment strategy for air compressor pressure switch leakage

Check and replace the seal: Check if the seal of the pressure switch is aging or damaged. If any problems are found with the seals, they should be replaced with new ones in a timely manner to ensure good sealing performance.

Reinstall the pressure switch: If the seal is found to be intact during inspection, but the leakage problem still exists, it may be due to improper installation. At this point, the pressure switch should be disassembled again to ensure its correct installation position and all screws tightened to ensure sealing.
