Is this a low pressure compressor
Side view of this older compressor

We have this compressor that I'm told came from our 1950's era office building . It was mounted on a horizontal 40-60 gallon tank.


I was told it was used in a low pressure system of 25 psi ( perhaps the HVAC ?).

I was asked to see if this could be used in the repair shop at 125-150 psi.

I do not see anything with a brand name or model. There is a tag on the cylinder " 5-14-6"
and numbers stamped into the castings. 56C-02806 on the cylinder base and 650394 on the crank case. Numbers are not deeply stamped so I hope I got them correct.

Thank you for your assistance

Brunner

You have a Brunner compressor which would make a very sturdy 120psi compressor, but as it is a single stage unit, going much higher than that will make more heat than compressed air.

Run it if it works, but don't put it in any critical application, since parts are a problem, as Brunner has been out of business since the 80's.
