Before Using the Air Compressor
4. Protect material lines and air lines
from damage or puncture. Keep hose
and power cable away from sharp
objects, chemical spills, oil, solvents,
and wet floors.
Since air compressors and other components (material pump, spray gun, filters,
lubrications, hoses, etc.) used make up a
high pressure pumping system, the following safety precautions should be
observed at all times. Only persons well
acquainted with these rules of safe operation should be allowed to use the air
compressor.
!
5. Never point a spray gun at oneself or
any other person. Accidental discharge may result in serious injury.
6. Check hoses for weak or worn condition before each use, making certain
all connections are secure; do not
use if deficiency is found. Notify an
authorized service facility for examination or repair.
WARNING:
All electrical work should be
done by a qualified (licensed or
certified) electrician. On a properly wired circuit, the black
wires supply a voltage potential
even when the unit is off.
7. Release all pressures within system
slowly; dust and debris may be harmful.
1. Read instruction manuals for each
component carefully, before attempting to assemble, disassemble or
operate your particular system.
!
WARNING:
Disconnect power and depressurize system before servicing
air compressor! (Turn pressure
regulator knob fully clockwise
after shutting off compressor.)
2. Wear safety glasses (meeting ANSI
Z87.1 or in Canada CSA Z94.3-99)
and use hearing protection when
operating the pump or unit. Everyday
glasses are not safety glasses.
3. Do not exceed pressure rating of any
component in system.

Safety Instructions (continued)
19. When spraying with solvent or toxic
chemicals, follow instructions provided by the chemical manufacturer.
8. Follow all local electrical and safety
codes, as well as the National
Electrical Code (NEC) and the
Occupational Safety and Health Act
(OSHA).
20. Spray in a well ventilated area, to
keep fumes from collecting and causing health and fire hazards.
9. Wiring and fuses should follow electrical codes, current capacity, and be
properly grounded.
21. Do not spray in vicinity of open
flames or other places where a spark
can cause ignition. Do not smoke
when spraying paint, insecticides, or
other flammable substances.
10. Electric motors must be securely and
adequately grounded. See grounding
instructions and extension cord information in this manual.
22. Use a respirator when spraying.
11. Always disconnect power source
before working on or near a motor, or
its connected load. If power disconnect point is out-of-sight, lock it in the
open position and tag to prevent
unexpected application of power.
23. NEVER reset safety valve or pressure switch. Keep safety valve free
from paint and other accumulations.
This provides safety against over
pressure.
12. Guard all moving parts; keep visitors
away. Never allow children in work
area.
24. Do regular maintenance; keep all
nuts, bolts, and screws tight, to be
sure equipment is in safe working
condition .
13. Use only a properly grounded outlet

Operating Your Air Compressor
All lubricated compressor pumps discharge some condensed water and oil
with the compressed air. Install appropri-
ate water/oil removal equipment and controls as necessary for the intended application.
Moisture in Compressed Air
IMPORTANT: This condensation will
cause water spots in a paint job, especially when spraying other than water
based paints. If sandblasting, it will
cause the sand to cake and clog the gun,
rendering it ineffective.
A filter in the air line, located as near to
the gun as possible, will help eliminate
this moisture.
Moisture in compressed air will form into
droplets as it comes from an air compressor pump. When humidity is high or
when a compressor is in continuous use
for an extended period of time, this moisture will collect in the tank. When using a
paint spray or sandblast gun, this water
will be carried from the tank through the
hose, and out of the gun as droplets
mixed with the spray material.
