Air Compressor Parts – Why it Pays to use OEM Parts

Air Compressor Parts – Why it Pays to use OEM Parts

Mid-Tech is dedicated to designing, installing, servicing and repairing high quality industrial air compressors, vacuums, pumps and blowers. That’s why we only stock genuine aftermarket air compressor parts and oils. We know that if we want to keep up our high standards of reliability, quality and performance, OEM spare parts are the only way to go. 

So, here are our top 5 stand-out reasons why it pays to use OEM spare aftermarket parts:

1. Increased Machine Lifespan

OEM spare parts can be defined as parts that are specifically designed to meet the specification of the particular manufactured machine. That means they are a perfect replacement part and are designed to keep the integrity of your system in place. Third-party or counterfeit parts may look the same, but they won’t have been designed with your particular brand or model in mind. This can be damaging to the overall process of the compressor and ultimately, decrease the lifespan of your machine. 

2. Warranty 

Using genuine spare parts ensures that your installation remains within warranty. This gives you additional protection and peace of mind, knowing that your investment is covered in the event of a breakdown. Spare parts keep your machine under warranty and offer amazing power and performance, allowing you to sit back and relax! 

3. Cost-Effective 

One of the main reasons people choose to buy third-party compressor parts is the price tag. Third-party counterfeit parts are often cheaper, making them a convenient choice for many buyers. It is important, however, to think about the long term cost effectiveness of your investment. Whilst OEM parts may be more expensive, they are much cheaper than paying for a complete repair job or even a new compressor! Ultimately, paying a higher price for quality parts is worth it to ensure the integrity and safe continued running of your compressed air installation. 

4. Reliable 

When it comes to your business, reliability is extremely important. As well as huge cost implications, as mentioned above, a machine breakdown also causes downtime which can be extremely detrimental to your business. Genuine spare parts and accessories are reliable and ensure that your operation can continue to run smoothly and uninterrupted. 

5. Easily Available 

People often believe that OEM parts are hard to find and therefore resort to buying products online that aren’t suited to their machine. With Mid-Tech, you can be sure that all the parts we carry are 100% genuine and compatible with your system. We always aim to keep our factories stocked with the compressor spares you need for a speedy turnaround that doesn’t compromise on quality. If not, we can order in and ensure a speedy delivery to your site/workshop!

Using the wrong part or compressor oil could seriously damage your equipment, risk your warranty or even cause a breakdown, so why take the risk? With Mid-Tech on hand, you know you are getting the very best service and that your installation will be kept in top shape.
