WHAT COULD HAPPEN
HOW TO PREVENT IT
The compressor head gets hot when the air
compressor is running. If you touch it, you may
be seriously burned.
Never touch the air compressor head during or
immediately after operation
It is normal for the motor and pressure switch to
spark when operating tf the sparks come into
contact with vapors from gasoline, flammable
paints or solvents, they may ignite, causing a
fire or explosion..
Operate the compressor in well ventilated areas
that are free of gasoline, flammable paint or solvent
vapors
tf spraying a flammable material - provide ample
ventilation. Never spray in a closed area There
must be a flow of fresh air at all times
WHAT TO
LOOK FOR
WHAT COULD HAPPEN
HOW TO PREVENT IT
Air Tank
Modifications to the air compressor can cause
the air tank to rupture or explode,
Do not adjust, remove or tamper with the safety
valve or pressure switch If safety valve or pressure
switch replacement is necessary, a part with the
same rating must be used,
Never use a motor with a higher horsepower rating
than the one supplied,
Never replace the air tank with a different model or
a larger tank
Compressed Air
Changing the air tank will cause it to weaken
The tank may rupture or explode
Never drill into, weld, or in any way modify the air
tank
Compressed air can propel dust, dirt, or loose
particles it comes in contact with,
Never point any nozzle or sprayer toward a person
or any part of the body
Always wear safety goggles or glasses when using
the air compressor
Atways turn the air compressor off before attaching or removing accessories
Electricity
Too much air pressure applied to air tools or
accessories
can cause damage or risk of
bursting
Check the manufacturer's maximum pressure rating for' air tools and accessories. An air regulator
must be added for use with those items having a
maximum pressure rating less than 125 PSIo
Your air compressor is powered by electricity_
Like any other electrically powered device, if it is
not used properly it may cause electrical shock
Always unplug the air compressor prior to maintenance or repair:
Never' use the air compressor outdoors when it is
raining
Atways plug the cord into an electrical outlet with
the specified
Vottage and adequat e fuse
protection
Toxic Vapors
It is normal for compressed air to contain toxic or
irritating vapors. Such vapors are harmful if
inhaled.
Never directly inhale the compressed air produced
by this unit,
Certain materials you are spraying (like paint,
weed killer, sand or insecticide) may be harmful
if you inhale them,
Read labels and safety data for all materials you
spray, Follow a!l safety precautions
Use a mask or respirator if there is a chance of
inhaling toxic sprayed materials, Masks and
respirators have timits and will only provide protection against some kinds and limited amounts of
toxic mateiaL Read mask and respirator instructions carefully Consult with a safety expert or
industrial hygienist if you are not sure about the use
of a certain mask or respirator:
Unsuitable
Solvents
The solvents 1,1,1- Trichloroethane and Methylene Chloride can chemically react with aluminum used in paint spray guns, paint pumps, etc,
and cause an explosion These solvents can
also react with galvanized components and
cause corrosion and weakening of parts,, This
does not affect your air compressor - but itmay
affect the equipment being used,
If the material you intend to spray contains the solvents listed at left (read the label or data sheet), do
not use accessories that contain aluminum or galvanized parts You must either change the material
you intend to spray, or use only stainless steel

volt operation, instructionsfor connecting the motor for operation at 240 volt can be found printed on the inside of the
motor cover or on the nameplate of the motor.
*A circuit breaker is preferred..Use only a fuse or circuit breaker that is the same rating as the branch circuit the air
compressor is operated on, If the air compressor is connected to a circuit protected by fuses, use dual element time
delay fuses (Buss Fusetron Type "T" only)_
These air compressors can be operated on a 15 amp
circuit if:
1. Voltage supply to circuit is normal.
2. Circuit is not used to supply any other electrical
needs (lights, appliances, etc.)
3. Extension cords comply with specifications
in

GLOSSARY
CFM: Cubic feet per minute
SCFM: Standard cubic feet per minute; a unit of measure of air delivery
PSlG: Pounds per square inch gauge; a unit of measure
of pressure
ASME: American Society of Mechanical Engineers;
made, tested, inspected and registered to meet the standards of the ASME
U,L, LISTED: Samples of compressor outfits, taken
from production, were submitted to UL and found to
comply with their requirements
for design and
performance
Cut-In Pressure: White the motor is off, air tank pressure drops as you continue to use your accessory When
the tank pressure drops to a certain low level the motor
will re-start automatically The low pressure at which the
motor automatically re-starts is called "cut-in pressure"
Cut-Out Pressures: When you turn on your air compressor and it begins to run, air pressure in the air tank
begins to build It builds to a certain high pressure before
the motor automatically shuts off - protecting your air
tank from pressure higher than its capacity The high
pressure at which the motor shuts off is called "cuFout
pressure",

.....AIR FILTER
(not shown)
SHUT-OFF
VALVE
GAUGE
VALVE
DRAIN
VALVE
Air Compressor Pump: To compress air, the piston
moves up and down in the cylinder. On the downstroke,
air is drawn in through the air intake valves The exhaust
valve remains closed On the upstroke of the piston, air is
compressed. The intake valves close and compressed
air is forced out through the exhaust valve, through the
outlet tube, through the check valve and intothe air tank
Working air is not available until the compressor has
raised the air tank pressure above that required at the air
outlet
Check Valve: When the air compressor is operating, the
check valve is "open", allowing compressed air to enter
the air tank When the air compressor reaches "cut-out"
pressure, the check valve "closes", aiiowing air pressure
to remain inside the air tank
Pressure Switch: The pressure switch automatically
starts the motor when the air tank pressure drops below
the factory set "cut-in" pressure It stops the motor when
the air tank pressure reaches the factory set "cut-out"
pressure
Pressure Release Valve: The pressure release valve
located on the side of the pressure switch, is designed to
automatically release compressed air from the compressor head and the outlet tube when the air compressor reaches "cut-out" pressure or is shut off. if the air is
not released, the motor will try to start, but wilt be unable
to The pressure release vatve allows the motor to restart
freely When the motor stops running, air will be heard
escaping from the vaIve for a few seconds No air should
be heard leaking when the motor is running.
Safety Valve: If the pressure switch does not shut-off
the air compressor at its cut-out pressure setting, the
safety valve will protect against high pressure by "popping out" at its pre-set pressure
Tank Pressure Gauge: The tank pressure gauge indicatesthe reserve air pressure in the tank_
