Sorry but this compressor will only supply up to a maximum of 130 psi. That is all it will do, so this compressor will not suit your needs of 175 psi. There is no way to make it produce more. You simply need a larger compressor. This Northstar compressor will suit your needs.

Why does the safety valve go off before the pressure switch on a porter cable 80 gal air compressor

The maximum pressure on most small compressors is 10 bar or 1000kpa which is about 145 psi in the old language most safety valves are set to 150 psi. I suggest you get some one to reduce the pressure switch setting. Running a compressor at elevated pressures does not give you any more air. A reasonable pressure for small compressors is 120 psi

Have a 11yr old RUUD Uaka 060jaz with the A coil frozen, solid, no air getting through. Service tech came out and charged system with minimum 3lbs of r22 but suction pressure wouldn't go above 6

Hello, typiccally with noncondensables in the system your head pressure would be alot higher. 175 is pretty low high side pressure. Usually coils will freeze due to either low airflow or low refrigersmt charge not becuase of non condensables. I would get a second opinion from a differant company.

Will not shut off. blows out after max pressure is reached

Is the incoming power connected to the top of the starter in the black box to the left side. next check the pressure switch. the contacts should open at approx. 175 plus or minus 5 will need to remove the switch cover. then watch the switch and pressure. If the switch does not open at 175 stop the compressor and remove the power. Using a small screwdriver gently insert the screwdriver between each set of contacts. this will un stick the contacts and the pressure switch will probably snap open. I believe the contacts may have welded themselves together. If the contacts are not the problem you have some type of wiring issue.More info will be needed for that.

I have a central pneumatic aircompressor with a 21 gallon tank.It pumps up to 120psi then pops off down to 80psi and goes back to 120psi...back and forth... never stoping...could it be a bad pop-off valve?

I would first find out what pressure the compressor is supposed to shut off at. If it is supposed to shut off at lets say 110 then the pop off valve is doing its job you have to reset the pressure switch so it shuts off less than 120 pounds.

Hi,I got a Ingersoll Rand type 30 model 234 compressor.It looks good but it has no motor.I'm thinking like 120v,3horses?,but not sure about rpm.any help would be nice.thanks

According to the information you provided your looking at a 10 HP motor at three phase. Do you have three phase at your location? If not I would look into getting a single phase compressor. If you do want to get it going I would notify your local IR dealer so they can get you the right Model number, RPM, Pulley and Motor Frame Size to match your unit.

Please read below....Jim...if this helped you please send me a positive response...Thanks!

Saylor-beall air compressor D-B-200-HA builds up to about 120 psi and shuts down but it bleeds down to 80 psi and restarts do I need a new pressure switch or can it be adjusted? it has adjusting screw on...

I am almost sure what you have is only a single pump and should only rut out 125 psi tops. you should not exceed this with a pump of that type. If it is a 2 stage pump (one large and one small cylinder) they can commonly go to 175 psi. But as always check to see what the maximum pressure your tank was certified and do not ever exceed it.

Will not auto recharge properly


From what you've written for your problem, I would say that your pressure switch is malfunctioning, as this is the part that regulates when the unit starts and shuts down.

It might just be the settings of the load spring, If your familiar with working on electrical devices see if you can manually engage or disengage the pressure switch. If this turns the unit of and on, it leaves you with only two problems. The unit is not reading the pressure or it's not sensing the pressure. Either way it calls for a pressure switch replacement

Hope this helps.
