Safety Precautions
WARNING
As with all machinery, there are certain hazards involved with their operation and use.
Exercising respect and caution will considerably lessen the risk of personal injury.
However, if normal safety precautions are overlooked, or ignored, personal injury to the
operator, or damage to property may result.
It is in your own interest to read and pay attention to the following rules:
✔
✔
✔
ALWAYS ensure that all individuals using the compressor have read and fully understand
the Operating Instructions supplied.
ALWAYS ensure that any equipment or tool used in conjunction with your compressor,
has a safety working pressure exceeding that of the machine.
ALWAYS adjust the pressure regulator to the recommended setting for the particular
tool being used.
✔
ALWAYS protect yourself. Think carefully about any potential hazards which may be
created by using the air compressor and use the appropriate protection. ALWAYS use
Goggles when operating a nailer or similar tool. Face masks will protect you against
paint spray and/or fumes.
✔ If spraying inflammable materials e.g. cellulose paint, ALWAYS ensure that there is
adequate ventilation and keep clear of any possible source of ignition.
✔ ALWAYS make sure that children and animals are kept well away from the compressor
and any equipment attached to it.
✔. ALWAYS, before spraying any material, consult paint manufacturers instructions
for safety and usage.
✔ ALWAYS, when disconnecting air hoses or other equipment from your compressor ensure
that air is shut off at the outlet and ALL pressurised air is expelled from the air line and
other equipment attached to it. (see ‘Operation’)
✔ ALWAYS expel air from the receiver and disconnect from the mains supply BEFORE
carrying out any maintenance.
✘ NEVER direct a jet of air at people or animals, and NEVER discharge compressed air
against the skin. COMPRESSED AIR CAN BE DANGEROUS,
✘ NEVER adjust, or tamper with the safety valves. The maximum pressure is factory set,
and clearly marked on the machine.
✘ NEVER leave pressure in the receiver overnight, or when transporting.

If this appliance is fitted with a plug which is
moulded on to the electric cable (i.e. nonrewireable) please note:
1. The plug must be thrown away if it is cut
from the electric cable. There is a danger
of electric shock if it is subsequently inserted
into a socket outlet.
2. Never use the plug without the fuse cover
fitted.
3. Should you wish to replace a detachable
fuse carrier, ensure that the correct replacement is used (as indicated by marking or
colour code).
4. Replacement fuse covers can be obtained from most DIY or electrical stores.
FUSE RATING
The fuse in the plug must be replaced with one of the same rating (13amps) and this
replacement must be ASTA approved to BS1362.
We recommend that this machine is connected to the mains supply via a Residual Current
Device (RCD)
If in doubt, consult a qualified electrician. Do not attempt any electrical repairs yourself.
CABLE EXTENSION.
Always use an approved cable extension where the conductor size is at least the same size
as that on the machine, or larger. When using a cable reel, always unwind the cable
completely.

Pre-Operation Checks
Before using your compressor it is necessary to perform the following operations, ensuring
the unit is NOT plugged into the mains supply.
1. Remove the Oil Filler Travel
plug and fill with the SAE 30
oil supplied, to the centre of
the red dot on the oil sight
glass.
Fig.1
2. Screw in the Breather
Fig.2
3. Screw the air filter,
supplied, into the
cylinder head, fully.
4. Screw in the Tap and Regulator sub assembly
tightly, (see Figs 3 & 4), noting that PTFE tape is
already in place. Ensure the tap is uppermost.
5. The pressure regulator should be set to its lowest
setting e.g. turned fully anti clockwise.
6. Check that the air receiver drain valve at the
base of the receiver is fully CLOSED.
Fig.3
Tap and Regulator
sub-assembly
7. Ensure the machine is located on a
level surface in a clean dry
environment with adequate ventilation
and plenty of air flow around the unit.
DO NOT place any materials
whatsoever on the unit.
8.
Now connect the air hose to the air outlet, and at the other end to the air tool screwed on directly.
IMPORTANT: When using the compressor for the first time, open the drain cock and run the
compressor for at least 10 minutes, off load, in order for full lubrication to take place (see
operation which follows).
Once this is done, allow the compressor to sit for a minute or two, then recheck the oil level.
Remove the breather and top up to the middle of the dot in the oil sight glass if necessary.
-6-
Operation
Once the hose connections are complete, plug in to the mains supply and start the compressor
by pulling the STOP/START switch upwards. Pressure will build up in the receiver, as indicated on the
gauge, to a predetermined maximum 116 PSI/8bar, when it will then stop.
At this point, slowly turn the pressure regulator clockwise to reach the desired setting for the
air tool to be used, as indicated on the Air Outlet Gauge.
Open the Air Outlet Tap and check to ensure there are no air leaks. Should leaks be apparent,
they should be rectified before proceeding.
Operate the air tool in the
normal way. (Refer to the Air
Tool
manual).
The
air
compressor will restart when the
pressure
has
fallen
by
approximately 20 PSI and this
automatic STOP/START process
will then continue as necessary
to replenish the receiver.
Fig.4
When you have finished with the
compressor, always switch OFF
at the STOP/START switch on the
machine, NEVER by switching
OFF at the mains.
ALWAYS close the outlet tap and turn the pressure regulator fully anti-clockwise, then operate
the trigger on the air tool BEFORE disconnecting the tool or air hose. NEVER attempt to
disconnect the tool or air hose before checking to ensure there is no air in the hose.
When using at an output of 8bar, DO NOT allow the motor to run for longer than 2 minutes
continuously. See ‘DUTY CYCLE’ on page 9.
THERMAL OVERLOAD
If the machine should overheat, the Thermal
Overload will intervene and shut down the
compressor. Should this happen, switch OFF the
machine by pushing the STOP/START switch
downwards, and wait for at least 5 minutes
before pressing the RESET button (arrowed in
illustration opposite) and trying to start again.
Fig.5
NOTE: It may take longer for the overload to
reset, depending upon conditions.
DRAIN VALVE
After a period of use, especially if the weather has been warm and humid, it is quite possible
that water (condensate), will have accumulated in the receiver.
To remove this condensate, first switch OFF the machine after ensuring that there is at least
some compressed air in the receiver.
Simply loosen the drain valve for a few moments allowing the air and any water to escape
- tip the machine over slightly so that the drain is the lowest point, to ensure all condensate
is drained. REMEMBER to ALWAYS Re-tighten the drain valve before storage.
-7-
Maintenance
IMPORTANT! Before carrying out any service work, ALWAYS disconnect the compressor
from the mains supply and release any air in the receiver. If necessary allow the
machine to cool down before proceeding.
It is most important to keep the Air Compressor clean, this can be carried out using a small
soft brush and a vacuum cleaner. In particular the air filter should be inspected periodically,
so that it is always kept clean. If this instruction is not adhered to, a loss of performance
could occur, even worse, any dirt passing through the filter could make its way into the
cylinder head and adversely affect the valves. This could lead to more extensive damage
necessitating its dismantling and replacement parts etc.
BEFORE EACH USE
Drain any condensate which may be present in the receiver, Undo the drain cock and tilt
the machine so that the drain valve is at the lowest point in order to do so.
WEEKLY
1.
Unclip the air filter cover, remove the filter and blow away any loose dirt. If damaged or
badly contaminated, it must be replaced.
2.
Clean the fins of the compressor cylinder and the cylinder head to receiver pipe. A
clean compressor will work more efficiently.
3.
With the machine on a flat level surface, check the oil level, It should be in the centre
of the oil sight glass, at the red spot. If necessary, top up with SAE20 or SAE30 non
detergent oil, by unscrewing the breather and using a small funnel to top up. Ensure
the hole in the breather is completely clear before screwing back in place.
4.
Check to ensure all nuts and bolts are tight. Check cylinder head bolts which should
be tightened to 13.6 Nm (10lbf ft).
MONTHLY
Start the compressor, and pressurise the system. Inspect all joints for leaks using soapy
water, and rectify as necessary.
EVERY 250 HOURS OR 6 MONTHS
(Whichever occurs first)
Change the compressor oil. Drain oil by removing the breather and turning the compressor
on to its end. Support it in this position and leave for a period to ensure all oil is drained.
Caution
Do not attempt any repairs or adjustments if you are uncertain as how it should be done. If
you have any queries, please contact your nearest CLARKE dealer, or otherwise telephone
CLARKE International, Service Department, on: 020 8988 7400).
Shutting Down The Compressor
1.
Push the STOP/START switch down to the OFF position.
NEVER USE THE MAINS SWITCH TO STOP THE MOTOR.
2.
Depress the tool’s trigger to release air from the hose and compressor before
disconnecting from the machine.
3.
Switch OFF at the mains and remove plug.
