919-162080 - Any idea of the CFM capacity?
by Dave Brezina
Any idea of the CFM capacity of a Craftsman 919-162080? I need 3.5 CFM at 65 psi to run a venturi to generate vacuum for vacuum bagging fiberglass.
Dave, from what I was able to find, you have a compressor with either a fractional, or very low HP motor. I suspect that you will not be able to get the 3.5 CFM at 65 PSI you need based on the diagrams I saw.
I suspect you'll need a bigger compressor, and if you are running it for an industrial application, get one with a 100% duty cycle so you can run it for more than 10-15 minutes without having to shut it down for an equal amount of time to allow it to cool.
919.165010 - A possible solution to this problem - pistion blew out on one side
(San Diego, CA)
I had a pressure issue with my craftsman compressor model # 919165010
the compression ring that is sandwhiched in the pistion blew out on one side and wore down the sleeve
And this, presumably, allowed the piston to move up and down, with air cycling through the leak, and not generating enough force to push the air into the tank, where the pressure could build.
Thanks very much for this, Edwar. It will help someone else, I am sure.
