SPECIFICATIONS
Refer to Outfit Part Listing for the specifications of your compressor. Use only a fuse or circuit breaker that is the same rating as the
branch circuit the air compressor is operated on. If the compressor
is connected to a circuit protected by fuses, use dual element time
delay fuses, as noted in the Outfit Parts Listing.
Improper electrical installation of this product
may void its warranty and your fire insurance.
Have circuit wiring performed by qualified personnel such as a licensed electrician who is
familiar with the current national electric code
and any prevailing local electrical codes.
GLOSSARY
CFM: Cubic feet per minute.
To Lock Out Power: Place a lock on the line power switch so no
one else can turn on the power.
SCFM: Standard cubic feet per minute; a unit of measure of air
delivery.
Cut-In Pressure: While the motor is off, air tank pressure drops
as you continue to use your accessory or air tool. When the tank
pressure drops to a certain low level the motor will restart automatically. The low pressure at which the motor automatically restarts is called “cut-in pressure.”
PSIG: 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 ASME.
Cut-Out Pressure: 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 “cut-out
pressure.”
California Code: Unit may comply with California Code 462 (L)
(2) / (M) (2). Specification/Model label is on the side of the tank on
units that comply with California Code.
DUTY CYCLE
All DeVilbiss Air Power manufactured air compressors should be
operated on not more than a 50% duty cycle. This means an air
compressor that pumps air more than 50% of one hour, is
considered misuse, because the air compressor is undersized for
the required air demand. Maximum compressor pumping time per
hour is 30 minutes.
GENERAL INFORMATION
An in-line lubricator is usually required for air tools to prolong tool
life.
You have purchased an air compressor unit consisting of an
aluminum 2 cylinder, single-stage air compressor pump (with cast
iron sleeves), an air tank, and associated controls and instruments. You will also find a Parts Manual.
Separate air transformers which combine the functions of air
regulation and/or moisture and dirt removal should be used where
applicable.
Your air compressor can be used for operating paint spray guns,
air tools, caulking guns, grease guns, air brushes, sandblasters,
inflating tires and plastic toys, or spraying weed killers, insecticides, etc. An air pressure regulator is required for most of these
applications.
A regularly scheduled program of preventive maintenance will
help provide the long life that has been designed into your
compressor outfit. Before operating or performing any maintenance on your compressor, refer to this manual and your Outfit
Parts Manual. To keep your compressor in good working order,
refer to these publications often and perform preventive maintenance steps as recommended.
An air line filter is usually required for removal of moisture and oil
vapor in compressed air when a paint spray gun is used.
ON-RECEIPT INSPECTION
Each air compressor outfit is carefully tested and checked before
shipment. With improper handling, damage may result in transit
and cause problems in compressor operation.
damage to the shipping container. If this product was shipped
directly to you, report any damages to carrier and arrange for

DESCRIPTION OF OPERATION
Drain Valve: The drain valve is located at the base of the air tank and
is used to drain condensation at the end of each use.
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 will be unable to. The
pressure release valve allows the motor to restart freely. When the
motor stops running, air will be heard escaping from the valve for a
few seconds. No air should be heard leaking when the motor is
running, or continuous leaking after unit reaches cut-out pressure.
Pressure Switch: The pressure switch automatically starts the
motor when the air tank pressure drops below the factory set “cutin” pressure. It stops the motor when the air tank pressure reaches
the factory set “cut-out” pressure.
Shut-off Valve: Turn the knob counterclockwise to open the valve
and clockwise to close.
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 factory set
pressure (slightly higher than the pressure switch cut-out setting).
Tank Pressure Gauge: The tank pressure gauge indicates the
reserve air pressure in the tank. On outfits with no pressure regulator,
this is also the pressure available at the air outlet.
Motor Thermal Overload Protector: The electric motor has an
automatic thermal overload protector. If the motor overheats for any
reason, the thermal overload protector will shut off the motor. The
motor must be allowed to cool before restarting.
ON/AUTO - OFF Switch: Turn this switch ON to provide automatic
power to the pressure switch and OFF to remove power at the end
of each use.
Air Intake Filter: This filter is designed to clean air coming into the
pump. This filter must always be clean and ventilation openings free
from obstructions. See "Maintenance".
Air Compressor Pump: To compress air, the pistons 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 into the 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”,
allowing air pressure to remain inside the air tank.
INSTALLATION AND BREAK-IN PROCEDURES
Location of the Air Compressor
Air Compressor Anchoring Methods
THE MANIFOLD ASSEMBLY DOES NOT PROVIDE
ADEQUATE STABILITY OR SUPPORT FOR LIFTING
THE UNIT. IF THE OUTFIT MUST BE MOVED, USE
THE TANK FOR LIFTING.
VIBRATION CAN WEAKEN THE AIR TANK AND CAUSE
AN EXPLOSION. THE COMPRESSOR MUST BE PROPERLY MOUNTED AS ILLUSTRATED BELOW.
Operate the air compressor in a clean, dry and well ventilated area.
The air intake filter must be kept clear of obstructions which could
reduce air delivery of the air compressor. The air compressor should
be located at least 12" away from walls or other obstructions that
could interfere with the flow of air through the fan bladed flywheel.
The air compressor crankcase and head are designed with fins to
provide proper cooling.
The flywheel side of the outfit should be placed toward the wall and
protected with a totally enclosed belt guard. In no case should the
flywheel be closer than 12 to 18 inches from the wall or other
obstruction that will interfere with the flow of air through the fan
bladed flywheel. The area should allow space on all sides for air
circulation and for ease of normal maintenance. Keep the outfit away
from areas which have dirt, vapor, and volatile fumes in the atmosphere which may clog and gum the intake filter and valves, causing
inefficient operation.
If humidity is high, an air filter can be installed in line to remove
excessive moisture. Closely follow instructions packaged with the
filter for proper installation. It must be installed as close as possible
to the accessory.
Anchoring of Vertical Unit
Vertical Units
The air compressor should be as near to air outlets as possible in
order to avoid long pipe lines. Do not place the air compressor where
heat is excessive.
This compressor should be permanently mounted in place on a level
floor.Vertical air compressors must be bolted to the floor. Bolting
holes are provided in the base feet. Mount the air compressor on a
solid, level foundation. Support compressor weight evenly on all four
feet. Solid shims may be used if necessary.
Do not use an extension cord. To avoid voltage drop and power loss
to the motor, use extra air hose instead of an extension cord.
6
Voltage and Circuit Protection
Lubrication and Oil
Refer to your Outfit Parts Manual for the voltage and circuit
protection requirements of your compressor. Use only a fuse or
circuit breaker that is the same rating as the branch circuit the air
compressor is operated on. If the compressor is connected to a
circuit protected by fuses, use only dual element time delay fuses,
as noted in that Outfit Parts Manual.
Multi-Viscosity motor oils, like 10W 30, should not be
used in an air compressor. They leave carbon deposits on critical components, thus reducing performance and compressor life. Use air compressor oil
only.
INSTALLATION AND BREAK-IN PROCEDURES (cont'd)
e. Run the compressor for 30 minutes. Make sure the
regulator, or shut-off valve, is open and there is no tank
pressure build-up during this time.
f. After 30 minutes, close the regulator by turning it
counterclockwise or close the shut-off valve by turning the
knob clockwise. The air receiver will fill to cut-out pressure
and the motor will stop. The compressor is now ready for use.
Compressors are shipped without oil. A small amount
of oil may be present in the pump upon receipt of the
air compressor. This is due to plant testing and does
not mean that the pump contains the correct amount
of oil. Do not attempt to operate this air compressor
without first adding oil to the crankcase. Serious
damage can result from even limited operation unless filled with oil and broken in correctly. Make sure
to closely follow initial start-up procedures.
Wiring Instructions
Perform electrical wiring according to the following instructions:
Place unit on a level surface. Remove oil fill plug and slowly add a
compressor oil such as Castrol Heavy Duty 30 weight until it is even
with the top of the oil fill hole. (It must not be allowed to be lower than
3/8" -- 6 threads down -- from the top at any time.) When filling the
crankcase, the oil flows very slowly into the pump. If the oil is added
too quickly, it will overflow and appear to be full. Crankcase oil
capacity is 16 fluid ounces. Replace oil fill plug and tighten.
IMPROPER ELECTRICAL GROUNDING CAN RESULT
IN A RISK OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK. WIRING FOR THE
PRESSURE SWITCH AND ELECTRICAL MOTOR
SHOULD BE DONE BY A LICENSED ELECTRICIAN IN
ACCORDANCE WITH NATIONAL AND LOCAL CODES
AND ORDINANCES.
Install the compressor outfit as close to the main power supply as
possible. This practice will avoid using long lengths of electrical
wiring for the power supply which can cause power loss and damage
to the motor. When connecting wires make sure that:
NOTE
Drain and refill the compressor pump crankcase
after the first 100 hours of operation.
Additional Regulators and Controls
1. The amperage rating of the electrical box is adequate. Refer to the
Specification Chart in the Outfit Parts Manual for your air com
pressor outfit.
Since the air tank pressure is usually greater than that which
is needed, a separate regulator is usually employed to control
the air pressure ahead of any individual air driven device.
2. The supply line has the same electrical characteristics (voltage,
cycle, and phase) as motor.
Separate air transformers which combine the function of air
regulation, moisture and dirt removal should be used where
Wiring must be such that full motor nameplate voltage plus or minus
10%, is available at the motor terminals during starting. Refer to local
codes for recommended wire sizes and maximum wire run; undersized wire causes high amp draw and overheating to the motor.
applicable.
Break-in Procedures
Electrical wiring must be located away from hot surfaces such as the compressor head, compressor
cylinder, or compressor outlet tube.
Serious damage may result if the following break-in
instructions are not closely followed.
This procedure is required:
1. Before the air compressor is put into service.
2. When the check valve is replaced.
3. When a complete compressor pump is replaced.
a. Set the pressure switch lever to the "OFF" position.
b. Connect compressor to power source. (See Wiring
Instructions).
c. Turn the regulator clockwise (or open the shut-off valve),
opening it fully, to prevent air pressure build-up in the tank.
d. Move the pressure switch lever to "ON/AUTO". The
compressor will start.
Improper electrical installation of this product may
void its warranty and your fire insurance. Have circuit
wiring performed by qualified personnel such as a
licensed electrician who is familiar with the current
national electric code and any prevailing local electrical codes.

INSTALLATION AND BREAK-IN PROCEDURES (cont'd)
Wiring of Compressor Units
Piping
Plastic or PVC pipe is not designed for use with
compressed air. Regardless of its indicated pressure rating, plastic pipe can burst from air pressure. Use only metal pipe for air distribution lines.
The main distribution air line should not be smaller than the
compressor air discharge valve outlet. A smaller line will restrict the
flow of air. If piping is over 100 feet long, or if required air flow will
exceed 15 SCFM, use 3/4" piping.
It is recommended that a flexible coupling be installed between the
air discharge valve outlet and main air distribution line to allow for
vibration.
Note
Where a remote air intake is used, enlarge
the size of the air intake piping by one pipe
size for each 10 feet of length.
To remove dirt, oil and water, install a separator in the main
distribution line. Install separator 5 to 6 feet from compressor to
allow the air to cool to room temperature before passing through the
separator. Additional separators or filters may be used depending
on the application.
A typical compressed air distribution system below should be of
sufficient pipe size to keep the pressure drop between the supply
and point of use to a minimum. All pipes and fittings used must be
certified safe for the pressures involved. Pipe thread lubricant must
be used on all threads, and all joints are to be made up tight, since
small leaks in the piping system are the largest single cause of high
operating costs.
Note
For underground installation, bury air lines
below the frost line and avoid pockets where
condensation can gather and freeze. Apply
pressure before underground lines are covered to make sure all pipe joints are free from
leaks.
All piping should be sloped to an accessible drain point and all
outlets should be taken from the top of the main distribution air line
so that moisture cannot enter the outlet.

OPERATING PROCEDURES
Daily Start-Up Checklist
Perform the following checks before starting the compressor outfit.
1. Make sure that nothing is blocking the belt guard air openings or air filter opening.
2. Pull the ring on all safety valves to make sure the valves move
freely and smoothly.
3. Check the oil level; add oil if necessary.
4. Clean or blow off fins or any part of compressor that collects
dust and dirt. Compressor will run cooler and provide longer
service.
Compressed air from the outfit may contain
water condensation and oil mist. Do not spray
unfiltered air at an item that could be damaged
by moisture or oil mist. Some air operated tools
or devices may require filtered air. Read instructions for the air tool or device.
6. Open shut-off valve. Your outfit is ready for use.
When You Are Finished:
7. Set the pressure switch lever to "OFF".
8. Close the shut-off valve.
9. Remove the air tool or accessory.
10. Open the shut-off valve and allow the air to slowly bleed from
the tank. Close shut-off valve when tank pressure is approximately 20 PSI.
Start the compressor outfit and check the following:
1. With the outlet valve closed, start the compressor
outfit. Allow the outfit to pump up to cut-off
pressure.
2. Make sure that all controls are operating correctly.
Refer to "Description of Operation" section of this
manual.
3. Check all line fittings and piping for air leaks. Even
minor leaks can cause the compressor to over
work, resulting in premature breakdown or
unsatisfactory performance.
4. Check for any unusual vibration and noise.
5. Check for oil leaks. Correct any leaks found.
Normal Operation

OPERATING PROCEDURES (cont'd)
5. When You Are Finished: drain tank pressure at approximately 20 PSI, open the drain valve and allow moisture to drain.
Normal Operation (cont'd)
TOO MUCH AIR PRESSURE CAUSES A HAZARDOUS RISK OF BURSTING. CHECK THE
MANUFACTURER'S MAXIMUM PRESSURE
RATING FOR AIR TOOLS AND ACCESSORIES.
THE REGULATOR OUTLET PRESSURE MUST
NEVER EXCEED THE MAXIMUM PRESSURE
RATING. ON MODELS HAVING ONLY A SHUTOFF VALVE, YOU MUST INSTALL A REGULATOR BEFORE USING ACCESSORIES RATED AT
LESS THAN 125 PSIG.
DRAIN TANK DAILY. WATER WILL CONDENSE
IN THE AIR TANK. IF NOT DRAINED, WATER
WILL CORRODE AND WEAKEN AIR TANK,
CAUSING A RISK OF AIR TANK RUPTURE.

UNIT CYCLES AUTOMATICALLY WHEN POWER IS ON. DURING MAINTENANCE, YOU COULD BE EXPOSED TO VOLTAGE
SOURCES, COMPRESSED AIR OR MOVING PARTS. PERSONAL INJURIES CAN OCCUR. UNPLUG THE UNIT AND BLEED OFF ALL
AIR TANK PRESSURE BEFORE DOING ANY MAINTENANCE OR REPAIR. NEVER OPERATE THE UNIT WITH THE BELT GUARD
REMOVED.
To ensure efficient operation and longer life of the air compressor outfit, a routine maintenance schedule should be prepared and followed.
The following routine maintenance schedule is geared to an outfit in a normal working environment operating on a daily basis. If necessary,
the schedule should be modified to suit the conditions under which your compressor is used. The modifications will depend upon the hours
of operation and the working environment. Compressor outfits in an extremely dirty and/or hostile environment will require a greater
frequency of all maintenance checks.

SERVICE INSTRUCTIONS
Safety Valve - Inspection and Replacement
Air Filter - Inspection and Replacement
IF THE SAFETY VALVE DOES NOT WORK PROPERLY, OVER-PRESSURIZATION MAY OCCUR CAUSING AIR TANK RUPTURE OR EXPLOSION. DAILY
PULL THE RING ON THE SAFETY VALVE TO MAKE
SURE THAT THE SAFETY VALVE OPERATES
FREELY. IF THE VALVE IS STUCK OR DOES NOT
OPERATE SMOOTHLY, IT MUST BE REPLACED
WITH A VALVE HAVING THE SAME PRESSURE
RATING.
Keep the air filter clean at all times. Do not operate
the compressor with the air filter removed.
A dirty air filter will not allow the compressor to operate at full
capacity. Before you use the compressor, check the air filter to be
sure it is clean and in place.
If it is dirty, replace it with a new filter. On some models, the filter
may be removed by using a pair of needle nosed pliers or a
screwdriver. Pull or pry out the old filter. Push in the new air filter.
Other models require removal of the filter retainer.
1. Remove and lock out power from the compressor. Release any
air pressure from the air tank.
2. Remove safety valve and replace with valve of the same pressure
rating.
3. Apply thread sealant to new safety valve and tighten. DO NOT
OVERTIGHTEN.
Oil - Checking and Changing
Overfilling with oil will cause premature compressor
failure. Do not overfill.
Belt - Replacement
Check oil level in the crankcase daily. Remove the oil fill plug. The
oil level should be even with the top of the fill hole and must not be
allowed to be lower than 3/8" from the top (6 threads) at any time. It
is recommended that the oil be changed after every 100 hours of
operation. To drain the oil, remove the oil drain plug and collect the
oil in a suitable container. Be sure to replace the plug securely before
adding new oil. Use a compressor oil such as Castrol Heavy Duty
30 weight. Crankcase oil capacity is 16 fluid ounces (473.2 ml).
