sullair 185 pdq will not take air to build pressure

by Ronnie

It will not take air to build pressure. Any suggestions? Is there a site to down load manual?


________________________
When you say it won't take air, are you saying that the intake port is not pulling in air while the compressor is running? That being the case, it might be an intake valve issue.

www.sullair.com is where you can get some info. If you can't find what you need there, call them.

SULLAIR - water is mixing with Oil in oil sump & water contents found discharge air

by Malik Aijaz Hussain

Please note that we using Air Compresor Model LS10- 30 HHAC SULL,(SULLAIR), Kindly note taht we are facing one problem at one one unit, which is "water is mixing with Oil in oil sump & water contents found discharge air
____________________
Malik, if you visit the site map page, and go to the Water section, you'll find lots of info as to why compressing air generates water.

In your case, I believe that you are having this issue at one compressor only, but not at others?

Is there something unique about the location of the air intake for that compressor that might be contributing to higher water vapor intake?

James, could be that, but more likely the air/oil separator needs fixing / replacing.

sullair 185 air compressor - sullair 185 cfm and a sullair 185 dpq

by Judy
(Fermont, CA)

What is the difference between a sullair 185 cfm and a sullair 185 dpq air compressor?
________________________

Judy, the 185 refers to the after compressor flow rate.

The DPQ is an options package. They offer other options packages as well... a DLQ for example.

You would have to check with Sullair to determine what the various options include.

I suspect, then, that the basic 185 is just that, and the DPQ is a model with an options upgrade.

Cheers,

Bill
