Question about Clarke Air Tools & Compressors
BEN Broom and Wade air compressor and vertical receiver. I have looked at the general condition of the receiver and it is built to massive proportions. It must be 1/4" plate and is welded with no signs of corrosion or damage. I use it at a max pressure of 90 psi but it has no test certificate and to be honest I feel at least a little uneasy despite its overall condition. I KNOW the answer is to get it cert'd but it means dismantaling a large amount of kit. When I look at other receivers I can't belive this would present an explosion hazard. In your experience of BEN Broom and Wade receivers what do you think? It's probably a 1958! Thanks. K.
The only way to trust this receiver is like you said have it certified these will rust at the welds inside which would be the weak spot. If it was always drained of water and had a filter on intake no telling how long it will last. I have not seen a compressor receiver break off I would expect a small leak first. Hope this helps
