Is this a Kellogg Compair?

I can't find other Kellogg comps that look like this one I found a serial number on the head 81272 it's a 2 stage 80 gal I think it had a 3ph original but switched over to a 1ph by the last owner it takes for ever to pump up like 15 20 minutes but I can't see a problem with anything in side. I need a kit I guess and some advice on a better 1ph motor.

Sheave size
by: Bill

Just remember, the larger the pump sheave in relation to the flywheel the slower the pump runs.

A larger flywheel and smaller pump sheave means the pump will run faster.

Fast..
by: Roger

If you set it up for 1100rpm I don't think you'd be far off.

Usually the motor pulley on a Ceccato was darn near half the size of the flywheel.

Cecatto?
by: Anonymous

Ceccato ? That sounds itallian which is what the P.0. said it was but the tags made me think differently.

It was metric for the bolts.

Any idea how fast I'm supposed to spin it?

Ceccato from Italy.
by: Roger

It's a Ceccato. They are set up to run pretty high rpm right from the factory. It used to be a Comp Air brand.

rebuild
by: To Anonymous

Are you James, or the original owner?

Anyway, maybe the rebuild was not done well. Or maybe you had to rebuild because it was overloaded to begin with.

Anyway, the baldor could work, just needs the right pulley, which would be double the diameter on there now. But could bog it down if it doesn't have the torque to run the pump. On the other hand, you maybe able to make bigger than that to get the pump RPM up to whatever it turns out to need.

Motor
by: Anonymous

5hp 3450 rpm it used to have a bigger pulley on the motor,but after I had the motor rebuilt it would overheat. I was looking at the baldor motor but they only spin at 1750 .

Motor
by: Doug in s.d.ca

I trust some one will answer the pump part of the question, I do not know.

But on the motor, they are running it pretty slow so the motor can even turn it, hence slow build.

Once the pump is IDd, we can figure out what motor - which won't be cheap.

What is the HP & RPM on the present motor?
