"How do you reload the springs in the 106.153980 pressure swith box"

"How do you reload the springs in the 106.153980? There are two. One is vertical with a very small spring and the other is horizontal. The box is very small and when I get it together it snaps every thing apart before I can place it in the box and get my hand out of the way."


You can use any pressure switch. You must take off the bottom five port 3/8inch female plate to mount it on the compressor.

I have a newer model and replaced it. My son got that old green compressor I used for 40 years to paint cars. He was replacing the 1/4 and 1/2inch pipes and dropped the box.

Building a dual stage

I have a single stage compressor with single head and single motor,,,I now want to install one maybe even 2 more extra heads,,,,,I have a really large tank and would never run out of air this way,,,how can I do this???

There is lots of info on this website about using multiple compressors on the same air circuit, using multiple tanks on a single air circuit, and so on.

By attempting to add additional pistons to a single stage compressor you are emulating these efforts.

Are you an electro-mechanical engineer? If not, find one. You'll need their advice about how to modify one single stage compressor to make it a multi-stage.

It were me, and I were bent on doing this, I'd simply feed the output from one compressor to the intake of another compressor, effectively doing the same thing.

Yet... there's always a yet, yes? If you aren't capable of doing the engineering for such a task, you will likely create something that might go boom in your face. Again, it were me, I'd buy a multi-stage compressor instead. It will likely cost less in cash and aggravation than trying to do it myself.

How to calcualte pressurisation of structure in case of failure of pipe

by Vilas
(India)

i would like to know how to calculate the effect of catastrophic failure (double ended) of compressed air pipeline on increase in inside pressure of leak tight building maintained at slightly negative pressue w.r.t atmosphere?

What will be the velocity of air coming out of failed pipe? How to calculate the same?

How to calculate rate of rise of pressure in the above building?

Can anyone help me on the above.

Hi Vilas. I'm happy to post this for folks to read, and offer help if they can. Your questions are way above my pay grade.

I suspect what you need is an engineer.

Thanks for asking, anyway.
