Chicago Pneumatic Maintenance Kit for RCP561VNS and RCP581VNS – 1312101248
This service kit is most commonly associated with the RCP-561VNS and RCP-581VNS two stage piston air compressors. Sometimes this kit number may be displayed as 1312-1012-48 or 1312-1012-48. The filters and oil in this compressor service kit will also work on the BelAir 216V and 218V air compressors. Several Atlas Copco and Quincy compressors utilize these parts as well. Please give our parts department a call with your model number if you would like confirmation that these parts will work with your compressor.
Maintenance and service on the Chicago Pneumatic piston compressors should be performed once per year, regardless of the compressor run hours. This entails changing the inlet air filter element and changing the oil. The air filter should be changed out twice per year if the compressor is operating in a dusty or dirty environment. The 1312101248 maintenance kit provides one air filter element and two quarts of piston compressor oil.
Changing the air filter will prolong the life of your compressor by protecting the critical parts on the inside of the compressor. Proactively changing the air filter will also increase your energy efficiency by not restricting the inlet airflow going into the air compressor. Changing the lubricant will ensure proper lubrication of the internal bearings, crankshaft, and pistons.
