You left that question rather vague. Are you asking what material? or What size? I normally would run one size larger pipe size than the outlet on the tank, unless the distance is great. You would connect to the tank outlet which is usually 1/2 way up the side of the tank. Use only black iron or copper pipe, plastic pipe is not strong enough for compressed air. There is some plasic tubing rated for air, but that looks sloppy and isn't inexpensive eitehr. Also put a "FRL" between the compressor and piping (FRL=filter regulator lubricator).

T30 model 2475N7.5 Ingersoll Rand will not bleed off head pressure when up to 145psi shuts down but will not start when at 95psi takes out breaker 50amp


If air continously comes from the bottom of the pressure switch (bleeder valve) you have a bad tank check valve. The check valve is located on the receiver tank where the copper line from the compressor head goes to the tank. The brass hex between the copper line and the receiver tank is the check valve. Remove it after making sure all pressure has been bleed off the tank. Then you can inspect it. I recommend replacing it unless there is something obviously stuck in it that can be removed with no damage to the check valve. Another way to see if it is the check vale is to loosen the nut on the copper line at the HP head that goes to the receiver tank. If air continously blows from the copper line the check valve is leaking.

Trying to rewire my ingersoll rand air compressor motor, psi switch motor starter, need some kind of diagram, it has a 5hp single phase 220


Please check out the Web Site Below. It is a Quick Start manual for IR Compressors.

It should have everything you need. It DOES NOT Show you any wiring connections AT the motor.

Hope this helps....Jim

I have a ingersoll rand 30, srats for 20seconds then trips breaker,,,runs great when running


Sounds like the unit is pulling to many amps during start up. Possibilities are: breaker under sized, wire under sized, to long of a run of wire from breaker for wire size,Tank check valve bad. I would check the amps during start up and while running and compare to motor name plate information. Remember at start up the motor may pull 1.5 to 2 times the rated amps on the name plate. Also if this unit has a magnetic starter wire connections may be loose or overloads to small.
