Installing an air compressor

by Abdul Varvany
(Nairobi, Kenya)

Hi,


I work for a company where we have to have an air compressor installed in a small, new tire workshop for fitting truck tires manually.. This is a plain area with no wall, ground or ceiling fittings whatsoever. I would appreciate it if I'm given a step-by-step guideline on how to go about installing the air compressor, the things/tools/equipment required in making it efficient.

Please pay attention to close details as I'm relatively new in the field and would appreciate ALL info be passed.

The deadline I face is tomorrow, as it's a last-minute occurrence.

I REALLY will appreciate immediate feed-back; please respond to abdul.varvany@auxpke.com

Regards.

That is, I believe, currently referred to as a manifold. These are often made of a cast, white metal (cheap and impossible to repair) on lower cost compressors, and are prone to break.

If yours has a problem, you can try to purchase another from the source of your air compressor, or if you visit a decent industrial plumbing shop, you can fabricate one out of standard brass plumbing fittings & fixtures.

Hope this helps,

Cheers,

Bill
