Seldom have I found less information about air compressors than I have, so far, found out about Antlia Air Compressors.
I learned that the name Antlia means bucket or pump, the pump meaning certainly being reasonable as a name for a line of air compressors.
Antlia air compressors origins are Australia I think, yet models of this air compressors are for sale online from outlets around the world, from auction sites and resale sites, and so on.
Since I cannot find out much information about Antlia Air Compressors on line, perhaps you can help if you have one or know about them?
For example, is Antlia a store’s house brand of compressor? Do you know who makes them? From their appearance I would surmise that the same factories that make so many other brands in China may also make the Antlia compressor too.
Can you help further by perhaps providing any information about the Antlia compressor you have as a comment using the form below? Thanks. Any manuals in digital format can be uploaded via the same form too. Please help.

“Hi Bill, I have just purchased an ANTLIA (Model AN2540HF-1) compressor.
I live in Australia & the unit was sold by our REPCO outlet here. The compressor is made in China & imported into Australia & New Zealand by a company called GPC Asia Pacific.I have noticed a number of online advertisements for this brand although I had never heard of them before.
Repco is a national auto parts retailer as well as a reputable engineering concern in its own right.(You may have heard of a Repco Brabham formula one racing car of the 1960’s.) The engine was designed & built in Australia at that time by Repco in association with Sir Jack Brabham & Ron Tuaranac. Repco now operate a nationwide franchise of auto parts stores & it would appear that this is the brand that they sell. I have just made a short movie of my unboxing of this unit & first test run which I shall be putting on my You Tube channel later today. I hope this information helps.”

Hi, we are looking for a manual for the Antlia belt driven air compressor . Thanks
It just stop and won’t come back on please help me…
Does the outlet have power?
Has it “come on by itself” since you posted?
There may be a motor reset button you can push.
If you drain the air tank, does it then come on?
There is a general troubleshooting section here:
Find your symptom and follow the checks. Good luck.
DR: So there was no recommended break-in?

Thanks for that, Douglas. When you’ve got your Antlia “unboxing” movie up, please add a comment with the URL. If it suits, I’ll embed the video in the Antlia compressor page.

HI, How do I removed water from the compressed air. I am opening the drain tap at the end of each use an leave it open until next use.
Any assistance would be appreciated.
Is the compressor in question an Antlia compressor? Please identify the model number if so, and if not, please advise the make and model. The response can be modified determined by the make and model of compressor. Thank you.
One tap is in the sole of tank. open that and let waters go out with air pressure.
Just doing some research and found your question Tanvir. A couple of years late I know. I have a Antlia AN2550CH-1. With the damp air it makes a lot of water in the tank. I suggest if moisture is a problem in the air that you are using fit a dryer to the outlet.
