Help locating a Puritan Bennett rotary air compressor.


I am working on a generator project where they -plumb pressurized methane gas into what they say was once a rotary air compressor from an air conditioner. It has a 1/3 hp electric motor connected to the shaft that runs through the compressor. the other end is coupled to a small 110 volt generator. The electric motor is used to start the compressor and is switched off as soon as the methane is under enough pressure to make the compressor turn the generator fast enough to make 110 volts.

I have a picture of it on the online video they sent me. If I could send it to you I would.

The tag on their compressor says: Puritan-Bennett Corp LA CA

Rotary Air compressor
115 volt
1/3 hp
P/N 11000
Amps 3.5
HZ 60
The compressor and motor are both mounted in a pretty heavy casting..

Bill if you know where I could get one of these that would be great or even something a little bigger that could turn a generator that would put out more than 1500 watts and not be much bigger then the Puritan Bennett.

My name is Jesse and i am working on the same project. the altanator is one just a 115 volt motor which is turned by the compressor. the microwave is 115 you can look it up on samsung. and if you look at the system as air is pumped into the unit the pressure from the high side is released int to the suction as the compressor turns and as i look and study this the circulating pressure high is sucked into the low causing the compressor to run on its on by using its on pressure. but to get one of these compressors i would like to know.

Sham or not sham - Puritan Bennett
by: Bill

I want to thank you for clarifying what everyone has posted about. I have not seen the video, and my search on line did not produce anything about this project.

What I don't understand is why the project specifies this one compressor. Surely there are others that would do the same job.

Perhaps someone could post a link to the video so I can see what the compressed need is, and perhaps make an alternate suggestion.

Alan, I don't allow email addresses in the posts. The idea is that information provided is available to all. Request an update when a comment is posted on this thread, and you will be kept appraised.

Sham or not sham - Puritan Bennett rotary air project
by: alan harper

Yes. this guy speaks for about 30 minutes and convinces you to download the "plans" of a decomposing vegetable gas device which will power your home.

The video goes to great lengths to show you how to drill holes , wire up plugs and tighten bolts.

Unfortunately nowhere do they say how the two pipes connected to this pressurized container in which leaves are decomposing would create the air pump, everyone here is asking for, to rotate .

I mean the two pipes are clearly connected to the same pressure vessel so both pipes have absolutely the same pressure in them.

Surely one pipe has to be vented so the pressurised gas flows and for any chance for the air pump to become an air motor and rotate.

The guy who sells you this tells us where he lives in a small town in the USA . If someone could get in touch with him and ask him how to make the air pump rotate the alternator ?????? I would be most interested .

No idea about this technology at all, though https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puritan_Bennett suggests that their business is legit, in supplying medical compressors etc.

The gas gen project is a fraud
by: Anonymous

Get your money back ASAP.
The videos are a sham. The demo is clearly a fraud. The microwave use 230 volts and the "alternator" is 110. You can see the hidden cord after the door is opened/closed.
