Compair Information

Compair air compressors include a broad range of air compressor types. Some of them are…

– Variable speed rotary screw compressors
– Oil-free rotary screw compressors
– Fixed speed rotary screw compressors
– Rotary vane compressors
– Reciprocating air compressors

The brand Compair is global and has been in the compressed air, ancillary equipment for compressed air systems, and other industries – with a broad range of products – for 200 years. They claim to stand for continuous innovation and development of compressors and compressed air equipment.

Compair provides ground-breaking compressed air technologies, such as Ultima, delivering superb efficiency and performance. Plus with the dedicated in-house airend manufacturing CompAir is able to specifically influence the performance of the compressor to achieve the highest levels of reliability and efficiency.

In 2008 Compair itself was assimilated. They are now part of the Gardner-Denver group, making it more difficult to parse an already complex web of product information and support. It must have been a real challenge for them to keep things going. The job of integrating mammoth companies like Compair and Gardner Denver must have been herculean in the details that would have to be attended to.

Compair Tip:

Recently S. Dolan wrote in on a comment, with reference to “Compair DLT1303 Hello there I have just serviced a Compair DLT1303 compressor. does anybody know how to reset the service hours please?”

He goes on to say that “I actually received a reply from Compair product support, which I was very surprised at… He said that it automatically resets itself when it passes the due service hours. gives you a reminder 50 hours before? so no need to do anything.”

I want detail of service kit for intake valve of Comp Air L37-10 Compressor.

Does anyone know theCFM of the Broomwade CA1-S (1974 ) Compressor . 3 cylinder perkins diesel engine

Not specifically.
However, if you can find the comparable Perkins 3 cyl engine (there are a few), multiply the HP by 3 and that should be pretty close to the minimum CFM, and by 4 for likely maximum.

Compair DLT1303 Hello there I have just serviced a Compair DLT1303 compressor. does anybody know how to reset the service hours please?

Could you send a pic of the controller?
I doubt a mere mortal can do it, probably takes some special equipment to get to that area of memory. Or maybe just a CAN accessory.

BTW, there’s a quick reference for this above for download, if you don’t already have it. Ignore the preview, the actual download is fine….

Thanks Doug, I actualy received a reply from Compair product support, which i was very surprised at.. He said that it automatically resets itself when it passes the due service hours. gives you a reminder 50 hours before 🙂 so no need to do anything. Thanks for your reply and download.

Well, that is a pleasant surprise. But it seems to imply one could skip the maintenance altogether and not know it, if you weren’t paying attention for a week or two.?

Dear Jorge,.

I need the Maintenance Manual and Parts List for CompAir C190 TS-12 Screw Compressor.
Many thanks.

I have a C76 Compare compressor which won’t start, was running fine, now just clicks at the fuel solenoid, battery is good, fuses good, relays seem to be ok, no power getting to the starter. Start relay appears to work when it gets power.

Sounds like you might have a bad cable or two. Maybe you can check by using a jumper cable in parallel with regular cable. E.G., battery to solenoid. Or solenoid to starter. Or, just check voltage under load at the load. Then verify suspects with jumper.
Don’t forget to check ground.

Greetings to Jorge from Argentina. The following is the Google English translation of Jorge’s post – Moderator Hello: From Argentina I can tell you that your compressor has problems with the starter.
