My check valve hose gets very hot, I saw a question, what is meant by regulated pressure?


  1. The regulated pressure is at the output of the pressure regulator i/e the air pressure being delivered to the air tool or spray gun.
  2. This can be set from just a few PSI up to about 180 PSI (on my Porter Cable unit).

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

A porter cable 135 psi 60 gallon upright


If the motor doesn't shut off at the desired pressure then your pressure switch is either set too high or is broken/stuck. The pressure leak at 150 psi is the safety valve doing its job opening when the pressure gets to an unsafe level in the tank.

I have a porter cable 6 gallon compressor. The motor used to cut out at 150 psi, but now it cuts out at 135. Is this a faulty tank pressure gauge misreading the pressure or a motor cutting out too early


it could be your air pressure adjustment knob, where your air line hooks up, which controls the psi to a lower or highist seting to adjust for different tools and uses.

How much psi does a 3000psi power wash have when in use


James, That depends on where you measure it. Internally, on the outflow side of the pump it's pretty close to 3000 psi. It's probably just a few psi lower just before the spray nozzle. After it leaves the nozzle it has zero psi, but it has a LOT of velocity. The actual velocity depends mostly on the nozzle, but that too drops to zero if you measure it far enough away from the nozzle.

Won't start -Porter Cable Cable 135 PSI, 60 Gal compressor


ARE THE POINTS BURNT IN THE PRESSURE SWITCH? DO YOU HAVE A LEVER ON THE SWITCH SET TO ON OR AUTO? IF YOU THINK ITS THE SWITCH JUST BYPASS IT AND TIE THE WIRES TOGETHER TO SEE IF IT RUNS. BEWARE YOU HAVE NO PRESSURE PROTECTION EXCEPT POP-OFF VALVE. MOST P.O.S. COMPRESSORS LIKE PORTER CABLE HAVE 3500 RPM MOTORS AND HAVE A THERMAL RELEIF BUTTON ON THEM. JUST PUSH TO RESET. MAKE SURE YOUR WIRNG OR DROPCORD IS LARGE ENOUGH GAUGE. SMALL GAUGE DROPCORDS KILL COMPRESSORS.
