SS5 not releasing line pressure on shut-off
My SS5 compressor has worked flawlessly for years.
Last week I noticed that when I manually turned it off (didn't allow it to reach 130 psi - where it typically shuts itself off), it did not make the typical noise when stopping.
It usually powers off and makes a several second hissing noise which, I assume, is the excess line pressure bleeding off between the cylinder and the safety valve. I have not run it up to the automatic shut off (assuming that it would shut off).
I don't have much experience with compressors, so I apologize if my question is redundant.
Ingersoll Rand SS-5 motor starts then builds RPM
by Eric Hardin
(Corpus Christi Texas)
Hi, I'm using an Ingersoll Rand SS-5 60 gallon 5 hp. When it starts it sounds like it is running at about 90% RPM and picks up to full RPM in about 1 min.
After it has ran and shut off the motor is cool to the touch and will start in the same way every time.
It's running on a 30 amp breaker with 10 gauge wire about 35 feet from the panel to the compressor.
Any info would be great.
Cant get a steady flow from ingersoll rand #SS5N5
I have a compressor hooked up to a small blast cabinet and I cant get a steady flow of glass bead to come through without having to continuously squeeze the trigger on the blasting gun without. Compressor say max air is 135psi and even after it fills and cuts of I just cant get a steady stream of media through the gun. upgraded to a bigger hose in the cabinet and it made a slight difference but not much. This has me scratching my head. Thanks and hope u can shed some light on my situation.
Ingersoll rand SS5 will not build enough pressure to shut off

Ingersoll Rand SS5 air compressor
ingersoll. Rand will not build enough preasure to shut off it gets to about 80psi and continues to run. Any ideas as to what would cause this
