CompAir 100 w8 compressor head on a Westinghouse air Brake co. Circuit breaker tank, help, can’t find parts!
I have a Westinghouse Air Brake Co. (WABCO) circuit breaker compressor, I just acquired. The tank has this info, and is also dated 1970. The motor is also a Westinghouse 2hp 20v single phase…. the compressor head is a v Twin 2 stage, with a tag that says:”CompAir co. Sydney, OH”
Model 100 w8I
I have searched to the end of the Internet trying to find it listed for parts, or a manual, or comparable compressor heads that utilize the same parts, but nothing! Any and all help would be SOOOOOOOOOO APPRECIATED!!!!
“circuit breaker” (?)
I think you might get something from any of either Westinghouse, LeRoi or Dresser if you ask.
Leroi-Dresser parts should work.
This would cross-reference to a smaller Leroi-Dresser compressor. 2hp is getting pretty small.
The smallest ones I worked on like this was a Leroi-Dresser 400, which is around 3hp I believe.
This is a superbly built unit, so it is well worth fixing.
