GLOSSARY

Become familiar with these terms before operating the unit.

CFM: Cubic feet per minute.SCFM: Standard cubic feet per minute; a unit of measure of air delivery.

PSIG: Pounds per square inch gauge; a unit of measure of pressure.

Code Certification: Products that bear one or more of the following marks: UL, CUL, ETL, CETL, have been evaluated by OSHA certified independent safety laboratories and meet the applicable Underwriters Laboratories Standards for Safety.

Cut-In Pressure: While the motor is off, air tank pressure drops as you continue to use your accessory. When the tank pressure drops to a certain low level the motor will restart

automatically. The low pressure at which the motor automatically restarts is called "cut-in"pressure.

Cut-OutPressure:When an air compressor is turned on and begins to run, air pressure in the air tank begins to build. It builds to a certain high pressure before the motor automatically shuts off - protecting your air tank from pressure higher than its capacity. The high pressure at which the motor shuts off is called "cut-out" pressure.

Branch Circuit: Circuit carrying electricity from electrical panel to outlet.

To Lock Out Power: Place a lock on the line power switch so no one else can turn on the power.

DUTY CYCLE

Air compressors should be operated on not more than a 50% duty cycle. This means an air compressor that pumps air more than 50% of one

hour is considered misuse, because the air compressor is undersized for the required air demand. Maximum compressor pumping time per hour is 30 minutes.

Unpacking

1.Remove all packaging.

It may be necessary to brace or

support one side of the outfit when removing the pallet because the air compressor will have a tendency to tip.

2.Remove and discard the (4) screws and washers holding the compressor to the pallet.

3.With the help of another person carefully remove air compressor from pallet and place on a level surface.

To Add Oil To Pump

Compressors are shipped without oil.

A small amount of oil may be present in the pump upon receipt of the air compressor. This is due to plant testing and does not mean the pump contains oil. Do not attempt to operate this air compressor without first adding oil to the crankcase. Serious damage can result from even limited operation unless filled with oil and broken in correctly. Make sure to closely follow initial start-upprocedures.

Multi-Viscositymotor oils, like

10W 30, should not be used in an air compressor. They leave carbon deposits on critical components, thus reducing performance and compressor life. Use air compressor oil only.

1.Remove the oil drain plug (B) and washer (C).

2.Obtain the drain plug extension (D), from the parts bag.
