Advantages and Disadvantages of Remanufactured Compressors

June 26, 2014

Like many machines, air compressors too undergo wear and tear. It “ages” and depreciates according to how often it is used and the care and maintenance that it is afforded. But even with the fullest amount of caring, the machine will eventually break down and have its parts broken or malfunction. More often than not, when this happens, that machine will surely be bound for the junk yard and replaced with new ones. Well, that is way faster than trying to replace the damaged parts and finding the right individual to do it for you. But do you know that remanufactured compressors provide the same power that the new ones or the second hand compressors do?

Remanufactured compressors are those compressors that previously broke down because of damaged parts or malfunctioning units. The defective parts are replaced with new ones, the unit cleaned and refurbished. Then it is tested several times for its performance. The performance should be good enough to provide the pressure power of a regular non-defective air compressor and never anything less.


  • Remanufactured compressors run the risk of breaking down again or repeatedly if not repaired very well.
  • Plus, the compatibility of the replacement parts would sometimes be questionable if the wrong people (non-experts) are doing it.
  • Also, the remanufactured compressors would not look as aesthetically pleasing as when buying a new one.


  • Remanufactured compressors always are far cheaper than the brand new items sold on the market these days.
  • With expert manufacturers handling the unit, their years of experience is guarantee enough that the refurbished air compressor will meet your needs sufficiently.
  • Not to mention the fact that you can choose the high quality parts that you would want to replace the original, low quality ones so that you can be sure of the durability of your remade compressor.
  • If the unit comes with at least one year warranty and you have tested it enough, then you can be assured of a very good purchase.

Try remanufactured air compressors today and be one of the many who benefit from the great performance of these types of machines and at the same time cheaply paying for it. You surely will not regret this decision.
