Thread: Cool compressor at new job!

    Cool compressor at new job!

    Just started a new job and saw the air compressor setup. It's a ford 302 v8 that uses all 8 cylinders for the compressor and is driven by an electric motor. I think they said something 105 cfm at like 100 psi. It's very quiet except for when it's pumping but even then that only lasts about 5 seconds at a time and is a little quieter than my 6 hp 60 gallon upright I have.

    Why does it only last a few months?

    Apparently it was to small for the shop and kept running constantly.

    I would think that that would be one heck of an electric motor to turn that beast!! Jim.
