1. Check your oil level, top up, or totally replace it

2. Check your cooler (Radiator looking thing) blow it out with a blow gun

3. Check your thermo valve (may need replacing)

4. Is the room that your compressor is in very warm, ambient air is a big factor in the running of your compressor

5. Do you have all the panels fitted to the machine? These are needed to aid airflow past your air-end

These are the main causes of high air end temperature. It may just need a good service

Hope this helps

What cuases high a/e discharge fault on ingersol rand air compressor


Dirty coolers are always associated with high discharge temps,always make sure your coolers are clean
compressor oil filters being clogged can also raise your temp n cause the unit to over heat,and on the much bigger machines if the compressor oil pump fails then you will have severe over heating as the oil flow to the cooler is assisted by the pump!!things like regulating pressure should always be adjusted to the machines specs so it doesn't over pressurize n put load on your airend while the engine is at idle.

My air compressor show continusly the alarm NO CONTROL POWER


No Control power is often caused by high airend temp or a faulty High AirTemp. switch(IATS Switch i.e High Air Temperature Switch). I suspect the IATS switch is bad and opening prematurely/coolent level not suffecent or bad filter condition because the att. temp. probe located next to the switch is set to give a temp alarm and shut down the compressor at 228 degrees.The hat switch is located in the end of the airend and should have a 1/2 " flex conduit attached to it. When this switch opens it cuts control power and series to emergentcy switch having two NC connection but if press emergency it gives alram emergency but if you remove cable 36 inintellisys control pannel. Thus the controller issues a No control power . This switch is set to open at 245 degrees. If faulty it may open at 150, 180, 200. Anything but what it is set at. You can check this switch with a meter. When the unit trips simply test for 110 volts at the switch or in the control panel if familiar with wiring . please be very careful while in any electrical panel.. 110 volts in, 110 volts out. NO 110 volts out or on one leg of the switch means its bad and should be replaced.After it cools for a while the compressor will run again.

Frequent alarms "Control power loss" Often


Control power loss is often caused by high airend temp or a faulty High Air Temp. switch(HAT Switch). I suspect the HAT switch is bad and opening prematurely because the att. temp. probe located next to the Hat switch is set to give a temp alarm and shut down the compressor at 228 degrees.The hat switch is located in the end of the airend and should have a 1/2 " flex conduit attached to it. When this switch opens it cuts control power. Thus the controller issues a control power loss. This switch is set to open at 245 degrees. If faulty it may open at 150, 180, 200.

make sure the cooler(s) are clean. Next check the airend discharge temperature switch commonly called a HAT (High Air Temp) switch. These switches will reset as the compressor cools down. I would be able to access the switch quickly. Run unit until shutdown remove wires and see if switch is open. if open you found your problem

replace the hat switch. hat = High Air temp. This switch is located on the end of the air end and usually has 1/2" flex conduit on it. Remove the conduit. It goes to a box located on the frame near and under the airend. Remove the cover from the box tug on the wires at the hat switch to see which two wires need to be disconnected.disconnect wires unscrew hat switch. Put a new oring on the new hat switch and install new hat switch. Hat switch is the only switch that will give high temp and lose control power. Let set a while and can reset unless probe is broken off.

Get yourself a temperature gun and check a couple things:
1) Measure the oil injection temperature to the airend. This is a line going into the bottom side of the airend. 2) Measure the discharge temperature from the airend (this should be the same reading as the temperature gauge/readout on the compressor, but check to be sure)
You should get a temperature rise of about 25-30 degrees F over the airend. If you have more rise, you probably have an oil restriction: try an oil filter change.
If your oil injection temp is more than 160 degrees F or so, check the operation of the thermostatic valve. The thermo valve is a T shaped valve in the oil circuit. The oil line out of the bottom of the sump probably goes to a tee which splits flow to the cooler and the thermo valve. The oil goes through the cooler then to the other side of the thermo valve. The thermo valve should then mix the hot oil from the sump and the cool oil from the cooler to maintain the injection temp in the 150-160 degree range.
If you have cool oil coming from the cooler (should be maybe 140 F or less, and the injection temp is high, the thermo valve is bad. You can get a thermostat kit from your vendor to repair. If you've replaced the cooler, this thermo valve is probably the problem.

I have a ef3 vulcan, when reaches temp, the pilot goes out.


Set the thermostat to 350 degrees,get a thermometer and put it in the oil,when the unit shuts off look at the temp of the oil.If the temp of the oil is higher then the thermostat is bad if not the hi-limit may be.Let me know.
