Air Compressor Parts – Why Choose Genuine?

Think Genuine – Think Mid-Tech

Mid-Tech Air Products is a compressed air and vacuum aftermarket and service specialist based in the West Midlands. Supplying air compressors, air dryers, filters, vacuum pumps and blowers with genuine aftermarket spare parts and service.

At Mid-Tech, we believe in quality — that’s why we guarantee that all of our replacement parts, oils and lubricants are genuine OEM standard.

Genuine replacements are parts that have been designed and developed specifically to suit the operating parameters of a specific brand and model. Every element of a premium spare will have been engineered specifically to suit the exact requirements of your industrial equipment, ensuring it fits perfectly, functions as expected, and lasts for the predicted lifetime of the element. They represent the very best professional quality attainable and ensure engineering excellence.

There are many reasons why choosing genuine is beneficial including improving your air system performance, increasing efficiency, saving money, and enhancing safety.


First of all, non-genuine parts cannot guarantee the same levels of performance as authentic. As they have not been developed with the exact demands of the unit in mind, they can reduce efficiency, degrade performance, and even risk causing a complete breakdown. To ensure ongoing production reliability for your operation, OEM parts are essential. Whilst third party spares can look similar, they can actually lead to decreased machine lifespan by compromising the overall integrity of your machine, leading to increased maintenance intervals and expensive replacements.

Secondly, while genuine spares may have a larger upfront cost than third party products, they actually save more money in the long run. It’s easy to be fooled into thinking you’re saving money when the price point for a counterfeit part is lower, however over time decreased performance, production downtime, and an overall decrease in efficiency due to substandard part performance will end up costing you more!

Thirdly, any business owner must foreground the safety and security of its personnel when making purchasing decisions. Occupational health and safety must be a priority to ensure staff are not put at any undue risk. Non-genuine air compressor parts may not have been subjected to the same quality assurance and safety standards as legitimate products, this could result in non-compliance with safety protocols as faulty products may pose ignition risks and be a potential fire hazard.

Lastly, to ensure ongoing peace of mind, it’s important that your expensive air compressor or vacuum investment stays under warranty. OEM parts are the only kind that guarantee to keep your installation covered and protected. In the event of a breakdown, counterfeit products could void your warranty and lead to huge costs to fix or replace equipment.

So, if you want to benefit from maximum reliability, increased machine lifespan, a more cost-effective solution, improved efficiency, and guaranteed warranty protection, the answer is to choose genuine!
