Why training is needed:

Due to the lack of knowledge and annual maintenance of compressor divider block systems, most are compromised and have problems that have been overlooked for decades; hence, creating premature wear and failure of rings, rods, cylinders and packing. Mechanics and operators never intentionally cause the divider block system problems, they simply lack knowledge of the system and skills needed to maintain it correctly. Many problems can be prevented with proper training for the divider block system and annual maintenance programs system. Knowledge of the force feed system & Preventive Maintenance Intervals increase run time & longevity of cylinder wear components.

What the class consists of:

Class is a full day and a half (12 hours) of hands-on and written instructions for every part of the force feed system. Class time depends on questions asked during the class and time needed to acquaint each person with operation of a fully functioning system installed on an Ariel compressor.
