Mix oil and water on motor


Ok, sounds like you are having water vapor condense in your crankcase, must be pretty humid where you are.
1- Make sure the crankcase has a vent on it somewhere.
2- Be sure you are running the compressor long enough to get the oil hot enough to evaporate any water that does get in there. If the compressor is over sized and just runs a few times a day it may not run long enough to flash off the water that does collect.
3- That unit looks pretty big if you sized it to spray paint with it may be way too big for your normal shop use (see 2 above).

Sometimes IR 30 goes into a strained free wheeling state


Did you change the 3 phase motor out with a single phase motor? A 3 phase motor cannot be made to run on single phase.

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!

Hi, I have an old IR Type 30, two-stage compressor, model #: V242 N3. The current motor is 3hp, 1 ph,1740 rpm and may need to be replaced. Is it safe to use a full-speed, i.e., 3450 rpm motor on this...


no you need to use a compressor duty motor same rpm using a higher rpm motor will shorten the life of the motor if you have 3 phase power even better single phase motors aren't as efficient and run much hotter and dont last very long on air compressors

Motor pulley for an old Ingersoll Rand type 30 compressor


Hi,
Here is a link to Ingersoll-Rand (compressed air division) where you can find a local distributor. I think a call to a parts tech might provide the original motor sheave outside diameter and belt size (I'm suspecting "A" or "B" size).

http://www.ingersollrandproducts.com/contact/air/index.aspx

With that info, here is a link to a good industrial source for your new motor sheave (McMaster-Carr):

http://www.mcmaster.com/#v-belt-sheaves/=3fwz7b

Their prices aren't so bad.
You may also have a local industrial sales in your area.
I hope this helps you... Nice compressor!
