how to find a manual for Devilbiss #RA5J80V1D

by Van Meter
(Washington, NH)

I am purchasing a used Devilbiss RA5J80V1D that's only been used 4-5 times to mostly inflate tires and blow the dust out of antique autos.


It is part of an Estate sale and the original owner has died.

I am a sandblaster and use the system to etch and carve glass and this compressor will run my pressure pot.

My requirements are 13 cfm and this compressure is a 5hp/80gal/15.5scfm, so it will handle my intermittent on/off sandblasting.

This particular compressor does not have a switch to turn it on.

First time I've seen that in a compressor this size, and I don't have a manual.

How can I get one and can you speak about installing a pressure switch on this unit?

Thanks, Van Meter

1978 Upright Devilbiss serial number 5450102. It has a 2HP motor on it. 200psi at 650 degrees F.
I believe the tank is 80gal.

I'm sorry Rod, but I don't understand what your question is?

You say you don't have the specs, but you know the HP of the motor, and from that, you can figure out the approximate flow rate.

If it's running you know the voltage of the motor and you should be able to tell the cut in and cut out pressure settings.

What else are you looking for?

A lot of reasons why this could happen, Lindsay.

Maybe you could check the troubleshooting section, and follow the link to the page about why air compressors run and run but don't build pressure past a certain point?

All info is there.

Cheers,
