Central Air Compressor

Specs

  • Compressor Motor: Baldor M7170T, 10 HP, 208/3/60, max 125 PSIG
  • Dryer/Filter: Ingersoll-Rand TS-100, 125 CFM, 115v/1/60 Hz, 10 amp, air-cooled R-407C, max 25 HP, max 175 PSIG

Current Status

  • Back on-line
  • Small oil leak into air lines

If an air line springs a leak:

  1)  Fix the leak
  2)  If you can't fix the leak, turn off any valves that will isolate the leak.
  3)  If  you can't find a valve that will stop the leak turn the compressor off
  Post to the members list that there is a problem that needs fixing.

If the air compressor trips its breaker, overheats the room, or just hums and doesn't turn:

 Push the RED ESTOP button on the box on the wall next to the compressor
 Post to the members list that there is a problem

Procedure to turn on the backup compressor:

  1)  Push the red stop button the wall box.
  2)  Unplug the fat cord from the outlet to the left of the wall box
  3)  Plug the backup compressor in
  4)  Twist the red stop button to reset the system

Make sure the backup compressor starts and nothing is rattling around on it (bottles, tools, etc.) Check back to make sure the backup compressor turns off when the system is pressurized, if it never turns off shut down the whole system. Always post to the message board when you do this.

To reconnect the main compressor, just do the above steps swapping “main” and “Backup”
