Compressed air is vital for auto body shops, who rely on it for crucial operations like filling tires, operating pneumatic tools, and painting vehicles. With so many areas of your business depending on compressed air, challenges with your system can cause severe issues to your operations. At Fluid-Aire Dynamics, we make it our mission to make sure your compressed air system works exactly how it should to keep your auto repair shop operating at full force.
Many auto repair shops report experiencing low plant pressure when multiple tools utilize their compressed air system, resulting in slower production times. If this sounds like your shop, you may need to upsize your compressor, evaluate and maintain tools that could be using excessive air, or check for leaks in your piping and connections.
Others find they often have to replace air tools that are corroding from poor air quality and water in their lines, an issue that can lead to fish-eyes paint finishes. Read our blog How to Prevent Water from Getting into Compressed Air Lines to ensure your lines are operating correctly and giving you the results you need.

We also know that in your auto repair shop, you cannot afford downtime. That’s why at Fluid-Aire Dynamics, we offer 24/7 emergency service to minimize downtime and get your shop back up and running at peak productivity.
Aside from being there when they need us most, many of our auto body shop clients have found our proactive approach to reducing compressed air and energy consumption helps dramatically reduce expenses. Through compressed air audit report, we were able to understand fluctuations in air demand in their system, which helped them determine whether or not a variable speed drive compressor and/or dryer would save them money on their energy expenses. Some have taken advantage of their energy provider incentives programs, resulting in as low as $0 capital expenditure on their new compressor!
