Sourcing parts for Devilbiss Model 330

by Larry
(Kelso Washington)

I have a devilbiss model 330 air compressor circa 1942. I would like to source parts for it, where should I look?







Bill answers...

Howdy Larry, how's things out in Washington?

Two things come to mind about finding parts for an old Devilbiss air compressor.

Have a look at the Repairs page on this website and see if any of the repair depots are close enough for you to contact them.

Or, to quote their site, " DeVilbiss Air Power Company has over 2000 Authorized Warranty Service Centers throughout the United States and Canada that provide the highest possible level of customer service. Contact an Authorized Warranty Service Center to order parts, accessories, or for warranty repair work." So visit this page for Devilbiss and follow their links to find their repair shops in the state of Washington.

Cheers,

Bill

330 pump parts availability
by: Centrair Air Systems

Sorry, I meant to add the only parts still available for the 330 pump are the components to rebuild the valves (not the complete valve).

Devilbiss 330 pump parts
by: Centrair Air Systems

I see a lot of different questions regarding Devilbiss compressors. This will hopefully clear up some confusion and I hope someone will repost this where more people can see it. Years ago it was one big company that made spray equipment, spray booths, industrial air compressors up to 30hp and small home owner compressors. They are all separate and unrelated companies now. Any parts for small portable (ie it has a plug on it or you can pick it up)or light duty 5hp(it will have an oil sight glass) should be available from Devilbiss Air Power. Any truly industrial compressors (none of these pumps have an oil sight glass)with PUMP models 123,223,220,230, 236,247,330,432,445,447,44633,44642,44643 are now DV Systems. They only deal through distributors. We have posted parts breakdowns on our site (www.centrair.ca) and have many parts still available for obsolete models.

Finding older compressor parts is tough. I've moved this comment and the original one to the "need compressor parts page" in the hopes that someone out there can help.

Help with identifying parts of a DeVilbiss Compressor (model # 230) (yes very old!)

by Phil MIller
(Yuba City, California, US)


Hi Bill,
I could not find my answers in your book, so I'm coming to the source.

I am restoring a 1952 DeVilbiss compressor that sits on a 60 gal horizontal tank.

On the head of the compressor there are four round caps, two large and two small. The two smaller caps have a tube connecting them to each other, then running off into space. My question is, what is their purpose and where should I attach the tube?

Also what lubrication/oil should I use for this compressor?

________________________

Hi Phil.

1) Thanks for buying my eBook
2) Reference the tubes, since I can't see them clearly in the photo I have, and since I know squat about this compressor (except generally), my thoughts are these might be the intake valves.
3) Regarding the oil, see my pages on Oil linked from the nav bar for as much info as I can provide, not having the original spec as to what oil they recommended

Cheers,

Bill

230 Devilbiss pump
by: Darren

If you look on our website (WWW.CENTRAIR.CA) under Devilbiss parts there is a PDF file for the parts breakdown for that pump. Some valve parts are still available. And yes, the tubes up top are part of an unloader circuit. If you apply air pressure to them it will cause the valves to stay open causing no pressure to build in the pump thereby unloading it.

Compressor came either with or without unloader valve. With unloader valve had a tube going to unloader.

parts
by: Doug

I have the same pump and have been using it for
the last 10 years in a small production wood working shop with 8 employees. I have noticed
lately that it takes longer to get up to pressure
so I think I need an overhaul kit for the valves.
Does anyone know were I can get parts. When I first purchased the pump I checked on parts and there was someone that sold them now that i need them I have lost that information. Any help would be nice.

Excel Devilbiss problem - Crank seal continues to blow out as air is filling tank

7 HP 60 gallons. Crank seal continues to blow out as air is filling tank. Approximately at 60 psi. Could you say what may cause this. Please note oil in crankcase is filled up to threaded area on fill plug.






Bill wonders...

Too much oil? You mention the crankcase is filled with oil up to the threaded area on the fill plug.

Is there no fill dipstick or other indicator?

Try (this is just a guess) draining off half the oil and see what happens.

Good luck. Comments from tech type folks very welcome here.

A DeVilbiss Twin compressor pump ~ connect 1/8'' copper pipe

by R Fisk
(Dorset. UK)

I have assembled a compressor for DIY use, as follows
A 0.75hp motor
A 50 litre Ex 'Fiac' tank
A DeVilbiss compressor pump
Question...on the top of the compressor twin cylinder head is a 1/8'' copper pipe (to both cylinders) that I don't know where to connect it to or what it does. It's not an unloader, I have that fitted to my check-valve.

_________________________
Bill says...

Sometimes twin cylinder compressor pumps have a line between cylinders with a check valve in them. Some have a check valve and PRV, some just have a PRV.

I don't know enough about the specific item to tell you for sure what the line does.

Your question is posted live, and perhaps someone out there with knowledge of this particular compressor can comment.

Cheers,

Bill
