Hi Jim:

The compressor may be out of production, but the filter element may not.

I don't know the HP or the discharge line size, nor do I know the element micron size.

I'm going to assume that it's a standard 40 micron or so, which is normal for a general purpose filter.

What is the line size?

If you can't find a replacement element for your filter, it will probably be OK to visit your local hardware store (better if it was a local fluid power distributor) and ask them for a general purpose filter that is the same pipe size as yours. Maybe it's a 1/4 NPT, maybe 3/8...could even be a 1/2". I can't tell you without seeing it.

Here is information on NPT sizing, and here is much for information about compressed air filters.

Hope this helps,

Cheers,

Bill

Actually, I don't sell anything from this website myself, though my advertisers do.

I would suggest you visit the Speedaire page (click from the Nav Bar) and follow the guides to get parts for Speedaire compressors where you are.

Cheers,

unit draws high amps as the air pressure rises

Hi Julio:

I'm not sure what your question is, but here is a reply to what I think you might be driving at.

As your compressor tank fills with air, the motor has to work harder to continue forcing air into the tank against the pressure that is already there.

If the amperage draw of the motor, though increasing, is within the specs of that motor, then there may not be a problem.

If, however, the draw is outside the specs, then it could be an indication of impending motor problems, I would think.

Visit the home page, click the nav button that says Speedaire, and follow the guides to get in touch with your local Speedaire shop. They will be able to help you, I'm sure.

Cheers,

Bill
