OVERHAUL AND REPAIR

Lone Star Overhaul Repair Compressor GearsAs a blower & compressor manufacturer, our factory specialists are trained in various blower technologies. Our repair process starts with a detailed disassembly and inspection. Beyond a repair, our application engineers work to find out the cause of failure and provide solutions to avoid future downtime.

All repaired or replaced products leave our factory with a same-as-new warranty and are fully run tested to maximum power and pressure to ensure maximum reliability.


Common reasons equipment is overhauled:

  • Process/Product buildup internally
  • Surge/Bearing failure
  • Locked Rotor
  • High Vibration
  • Flooded by Water
  • Improper Maintenance
  • Turn Around

Our large stock of Lone Star manufactured parts means faster turnaround for Hoffman, Lamson, Gardner Denver, Atlas Copco, HSi, Turblex, Howden, Siemens, Roots, Continental, Hibon, Spencer, and National Turbine, Ingersoll Rand, FS Elliott, Atlas Copco, Sullair (IHI), and Hanwha Samsung centrifugal blowers and compressors*.  Click to find your brand and model.  A  full 1 year same as new warranty applies to all overhauls.

COMPLETE BLOWER & COMPRESSOR REPAIR &
OVERHAUL EXPERTS FROM LONE STAR ARE READY

Lone Star experience technicians can not only offer field service but complete preventative maintenance programs as well, including complete troubleshooting and repair capabilities of the entire system from the controls (PLC) to all actuators or sensors.

Root Cause Analysis: Detailed disassembly and inspection procedures as well as material root cause analysis can help determine causes of failure and prevent new failures

Lone Star manufactures all parts for these blowers and compressors to allow fast and efficient services.

Complete Testing: Our test stand can fully mechanically run blowers up to 4,000 hp. On site capabilities for Balancing , Vibration analysis, complete engineering service, positive material identification, and more. See our complete testing capabilities.

Performance Testing: We offer ASME PTC-10 performance testing for blowers to offer positive proof of performance when needed.

Rerate Your Blower: We can re-rate performance of your blower by changing, adding or removing impellers, gear ratios, impeller cuts, or adapting a new control system for your existing blower.

Root Cause Analysis: Detailed disassembly and inspection procedures as well as material root cause analysis can help determine causes of failure and prevent new failures.

PERFORMANCE CHANGE (RE-RATE)

Re-rates are changing the performance of the equipment. Majority of re-rates keep the same dimensions.

Common reasons units are re-rated:

  • Increase of Decrease Flow
  • Increase Pressure Rise
  • Increase Turndown Capability
Increasing-Pressure

80% ARE NOT SIZED PROPERLY

Re-rates are changing the performance of the equipment. Majority of re-rates keep the same dimensions.
Common reasons units are re-rated:
• Increase or Decrease Flow
• Increase pressure rise
• Increase turndown capability
• Increase energy efficiency
Geared Turbo are re-rated:
• Change Gear Set
• Cut Down Impeller
• Add VFD and Controls
Multistage Turbo are re-rated:
• Change Impeller Mix
• Add or Delete Stages
• Change Control to VFD
