Maintenance Musts for Your Sealcoating Equipment

Sealcoating equipment represents a major investment for contractors. Regular maintenance of this equipment is essential to ensure a long service life. This article provides some guidelines on routine maintenance for sealcoating machines and tanks. Daily maintenance tasks include checking fluid levels, draining air compressor water and checking tire pressure. Oil and air breathers should be checked weekly, and oil should be changed monthly. Winterizing the sealcoating unit is an important protective measure that involves rinsing out the tank and pump, then running antifreeze or windshield wiper fluid through the system. Annual maintenance tasks include checking the brakes and packing wheel bearings, cleaning the inside of the tank, and examining the balls and seats on the diaphragm pump.
