Emglo model no. K1S-30S

Emglo model no. K1S-30S

Thanks in advance for the help!


I don't know anything about compressors. I aquired a used one and am trying to find out the specs (capacity and such) on it. The model number stamped right on the thing seems to not exist!

The compressor itself I think is model no. K1S-30S? The pump has a K stamped on it only, and the motor is a Dayton industrial 1 hp 3 phase model no. 3N012J. It is a single tank, a big one with no wheels or handle. I'm just trying to find out the specifications and capabilities of the compressor, and also if the pump has two cylinders. It is not the V-shaped pump. Thanks again!

I found this:

"
K1S-30S - Jenny Products, Inc.
www.jennyproductsinc.com/manuals/K1S-30UMS.pdf‎
Parts List for Model K1S-30 Single Phase. NOTE: The quantity number indicates the total number of pieces required for a complete unit repair. When ordering ...
"

Probably it's the same thing, except maybe the motor...

Looks like its a 30 gallon tank, 7.4 CFM@40PSI.
Look at the jenny page /stationary/firesprinkler

Good luck.

Replacement regulator for Emglos model MS05-HC4S

by scott
(homer, ak)

I have, what appears to be an emglo single tank hand carry air compressor. The air regulator plastic knob broke.
The Model number is: MS05-HC4S

Can you help me?

Sure, Scott. You don't need to replace the regulator with an OEM one.

I could not find any information on your model of air compressor yet, if it's like other Emglo compressors, you will likely need to remove a shroud to get to where the regulator is.

Does your model have the remote gauge?

Regardless, you will need to dismantle the discharge line to remove the existing regulator, after you have unplugged the compressor and vented all the air from the tank first.

Take the regulator with you to your local air compressor store and find another that is similar in size, air pressure range, and the same port size as yours, reassemble, and you are back in business.

pressure switch doesn't start the compressor soon enough...

by Bruce

My trusty Air Mate has always left the last three nails sticking part way out when using a framing nailer before it kicks in to recharge the tanks. Can this be adjusted? I mostly use it for finish guns, which don't have a problem. Thanks, Bruce.

Bruce, what is the pressure setting on your Emglo regulator?

What is the pressure necessary for your nail gun to work properly?

Usually an air compressor kicks on well above the pressure a nail gun needs to fire a nail... so something's not right with your setup.

Please add details as a comment here.

Stops running after a few seconds.

by Jim McCarthy
(Quincy, MA)

I have an Emglow Airmate AM78 HC4V it starts most of the time with no air load. After the motor runs for a few seconds it slows down for a second or two and then stops to a hum.

Even if i remove the After cooler tube and let it run with no load it will still start but slow down and then stop running to a hum.

I have bypassed the pressure switch to eliminate a poor connection and the result is the same. I have removed the pump head and cleaned the cylinder head sleeve and valve tabs. I also changed the oil. It was dark silver and was last changed about 10-15 hours ago (3months ago.)

I have had this compressor for 13 years and it has earned its money but it has been well cared for with routine oil changes, check valve maintenance and replacement pressure switches.

Assuming there has been no change in the power supply to the compressor, I would have a look at the start / run caps as a potential problem.

There is a page on this site about how to check them, Jim.
