Who makes Lux compressors and where can i get parts
(South Milwaukee, WI)
Lux air compressor - http://www.about-air-compressors.com
I just purchased a used 60 gallon Lux air compressor Model FPV-502228 as best i can tell. I cannot find any info about this brand of compressor.
I am would think it must have been made by some lager manufacturer? I need to replace a damaged air filter and would like to know where to get any parts i need in the future.
It has a century 5hp motor and a Furnas pressure unit.
One last question it shuts off at 125 and starts back up again at 80. are these normal settings? is the furnas pressure unit adjustable? My email address is email@example.com
William, I struck out on finding out where the Lux air compressor, or as some refer to it, Luxaire air compressor, comes from.
I found some good comments about it, but precious few details.
One individual thought the pump resembled one that he sold that was made by Campbell Hausfeld, so that may have been the source.
Another says you can get parts for the Lux air compressor from:
Good luck, and comments from any Lux air compressor owners are sure welcome.
Picked up an older compressor in Canada - any help on it?

I picked up the following combination, but not hooked up. I was wanting to find out if I have the right combination before hooking it up.
I was told the compressor pump was just rebuilt.
From the label, I'm thinking it's a Webster, but don't know model/specs, just have a serial #660248
The motor is a 220V 1PH 2HP 1740RPM. I picked up a 5HP 1740RPM as well in case it was more suitable.
The tank has the binks name.
Any help in putting it together as to size of pulley, which motor, things i should check/replace (valves?), type of oil, etc. would be greatly appreciated.
Any Ideas Who made this pump?

Older air compressor pump
It is 2 stage / 4 cylinder; no obvious patent number visible, a hand stamped number " A 16434 "; barely legible casting numbers that kind of look like " 433 - 158 "; and a casting logo that barely legible says "United Stated of America" ... that's it.
Who mfg. this pump?
Attached are 3 pictures for reference.
Will appreciate your wisdom. Thank you. Evan

What model number and name for this compressor is?
Older Devilbiss air compressor
I have located a picture of the DeVilbiss compressor that used to be my fathers. I have started to restore the compressor but can not find anything other then a picture at this URL site about this compressor.
The URL that shows the compressor is http://ts2.mm.bing.net/th?id=HN.608054252794612449
The only information on the plate attached to the base is "NCD" and "501" in the two information spots. And the manufacturer which is DeVilbiss in Toledo Ohio.
If you know the model of this compressor and where parts can be acquired I would appreciate the help.
