Belt jumps off Ingersoll T-30 on start up

by Ben

Hello,


I bought a used air compressor that was running an automatic car wash. It's a 7.5hp three phase compressor. I have a 25hp phase converter running it.

I had an electrician hook it up. When we start it though the belt jumps a few times while it's starting then either falls off or breaks.

I've tried adjusting the belt tighter and it still does the same thing.

After jumping a few times if the belt manages to stay on, the compressor runs great.

On restart though the belt usually breaks or falls off. I've tried a couple different brands of belt with no success.

Have you seen this issue before?

Does this happen even with an empty tank?
