Kaeser blows breaker - is this common?

Is it common for industrial air compressors (Champion or Kaeser) to blow a breaker and then single ground?

B. Jones, no it is not common for air compressors to blow breakers, though when certain components fail, they certainly can.

I don't know what this " and then single ground " means.

If you go to the troubleshooting section on the site map page, you'll see links to pages to do with this issue.

Cheers,

Bill

What is Kaeser AS25T?
by: Mark @ Quad-State Air

The Kaeser AS25T design has been around approximately 10 yrs.

It is a belt driven rotary screw it delivers 112 cfm @ 125 psi.

The T indicates that it has a built in air dryer with eco-drain.

Kaeser AS25T 25H compressor inlet air consumption

by George
(Pittsburgh)

How do I compute the volume (CFM) of room air required by any given rated compressor?

For instance, I am working with a Kaeser AS25T 25HP compressor rated at 111 CFM at an operating pressure of 125 psig.

So, what is the room air volume (CFM) that would need to be delivered to the inlet of the air compressor in order for it deliver 125 psig compressed air at peak load?

This air volume that I am seeking would be that which is independent of the room air required for ventilation/cooling of air cooled compressor.

Please advise.

Thanks,

George G.

Well George, your question may require the skills of an air engineer to be sure of the answer. Kaeser has those folks on staff!

For my non-scientific perspective, I would guess that since one HP of motor size outputs about 4 CFM of compressed air at 90 PSI, and that's about 6 times atmosphere, then for every HP of motor size, your compressor would need around 25 standard cubic feet of free air as a minimum.

Rather than have a room big enough to hold the air your compressor needs to ingest, why not feed the room from the outside with a duct that's bigger in size than the intake of the compressor? And, bearing in mind that air flowing through a duct will slow and reduce flow, maybe make the duct as big as practical depending on it's run?

Or, chase down an air engineer for a scientific answer... or, maybe there is one reading this now that would like to comment. :=}

Cheers,

Bill

the lense on the oil tank is leaking..

My partner tried to un-screw it thinking thats how you change the oil.. It has leaked since then.. Is this an easy fix?? We both tried to tighten it back, but it still leaks..

leak
by: Doug in s.d.ca

Could you have lost an o-ring seal, maybe?

Any residue on it, perhaps indicating some liquid sealant was used at manufacture?

If all else fails, you could try gluing it, but you'd want to make sure the glue can take the heat.
