COMPRESSOR COMPONENTS

Part
Description
A
Pressure Switch - The compressor shuts off automatically when the tank pressure reaches the maximum preset pressure.
After air is used from the tank and drops to a preset low level, the pressure switch signals the magnetic starter to turn the
motor back on. When the motor turns off, you will hear air leaking out of the pressure switch unloader valve for a short time.
This releases the air pressure from the discharge tube and allows the compressor to restart easier.
B
ASME Safety Valve - This valve automatically releases air if the tank pressure exceeds the preset maximum.
C
Discharge Tube - This tube carries compressed air from the pump to the check valve. This tube becomes very hot during use.
To avoid the risk of severe burns, never touch the discharge tube.
D
Check Valve (not visible) - One-way valve that allows air to enter the tank, but prevents air in the tank from flowing back into
the compressor pump.
E
Belt Guard - Covers the belt, motor pulley, and flywheel.
F
Drain Valve - Use this valve to drain moisture from the tank daily to reduce the risk of corrosion.
G
Tank Pressure Gauge - Indicates the amount of air pressure stored in the tank.
H
Outlet Pressure Gauge - Indicates the amount of air pressure being delivered out the discharge port.
I
Air Filter - Keeps large particulates out of the air flowing into the compressor.
J
Regulator - Controls the amount of air pressure released at the discharge port.
K
Universal Coupler - A direct connect to the air compressor unit for use of air hose(s).
L
Discharge Port - Air delivery port for transfer of compressed air.
M
Magnetic Starter - Controls the start and stop of the motor based on the signal from the pressure switch.
