Question about Air Tools & Compressors

1 Answer

We have a 2004 XAS 136 rotary screw compressor. The problem started suddenly. Engine starts and runs fine. On activating compressor, (blue button) there is a bit of exhaust smoke and engine seems overload. On opening ball valves, to use air, the engine revs fall, there is lots of exhaust smoke. It is delivering air, but obviously less as revs fall. Has anyone got any ideas of what problem could be? Thanks in advance.

First check oil level in both the engine AND the compressor if it has an oil sump.
It ounds like the piston rings or cylinders are scored causing the engine to have no power under load and to burn oil, and the compressor may also be seized.

if there is the correct amount of oil in the engine then consider an oil change and add some

to both engine oil and the compressor oil (providing it also uses ordinary engine oil too)

SOURCE: 1989 Ingersoll-Rand 185 cfm air compressor will not build up air

ITS A POSSIBILITY AND YOU BETTER HOPE ITS NOT SPINNING BECAUSE THE SCREW COMPRESSOR IS LOCKED UP. CHECK THE OIL LEVEL IN THE SUMP AND SEE IF THE ROTOR WILL TURN WHEN NOT RUNNING. TYPICALLY THE DIESEL ENGINE WILL TURN HIGHER RPMS WHEN IT HAS NO DRAG ( NO COMPRESSOR HOOKED UP ). YOU CAN GET THE PARTS FROM INGERSOL RAND OR ANY RENTAL YARD - UNITED, PENSKE, SUNBELT, ETC. THEIR MECHANIC SHOPS ARE USUALLY FOR HIRE AND CAN EVEN INSTALL IT FOR A CHARGE. ALSO MAKE SURE NOTHING BUILT A NEST IN THERE. IF YOU REMOVE THE SCREW, MAKE SURE AND WATCH FOR SHIMS. THOSE SHAFTS NEED TO LINED UP PERFECT TO REDUCE VIBRATION. GOOD LUCK

Ingersoll Rand SSR EP60 60hp Compressor w/ Intellisys 39817655 controller. Need to reset target pressure. What is the secret button sequence to access programming mode on this controller? I am aware of...


OK, Compressor should be shut down and showing (ready to start) in display. Press load/unload button once then press hidden right button within 3 seconds. This will let you access the set point program. It will include language, temperature and pressure, rated pressure,etc. Make sure you look at the data tag affixed to the unit and see what the rated pressure is for your unit. You can endanger yourself and equipment by over pressurizing the components of the compressor.

What does alarm start fault mean on the control panel on a ingersoll rand ssr ep-30 air compressor


I use to start up a 25 HP Ingersol screw type compressor. The only alarms I got were from power spikes which just needed the reset button to be pushed, then the on button - and the low oil sensor would shut it down and give an alarm when the tank was about half way down. They will blow up with no oil so there is a saftey margin on oil level.

My 1998 atlas copco xas 97 185cfm deutch diesel shuts down when i open full air


Check the Deutch diesel engine controls. Normally with
the compressor at full open, engine must continously run, sionce this is the point where the engine is not
heavy loaded. Check the injection pump as well as engine speed control and the air filter.

ROTARY SCREW COMPRESSOR TRIPPING


Possibly water in the air tank ? Or Ice covering the inlet or screen into the tank? DOes it have a belt? or direct drive? Remove the belt and try to turn by hand. See if its the motor or the compressor is tight. If it rolls free possible a chack valve is hung up or has a broken spring OR yuo have a bad capicator or centrifical sw going to the start capicator. Check amp draw with no pressure on the compressor. tank open. If it runs extra time its somethign while under load. If it still cuts out you need to sepperate and discover if its a mechanical or electrical problem.
HOPE THIS HELPS PLEASE RATE ME ACCORDINGLY AND GOOD LUCK
