Breathable Air Warning

This compressor/pump is not equipped and should not be used “as is” to supply breathing quality air. For any application of air for human consumption, the air compressor/pump will need to be fitted with suitable in-line safety and alarm equipment. This additional equipment is necessary to properly filter

and purify the air to meet minimal specifications for Grade D breathing as described in Compressed Gas Association Commodity Specification G

7.1 - 1966, OSHA 29 CFR 1910. 134, and/or Canadian Standards

Associations (CSA).

DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES In the event the compressor is

used for the purpose of breathing air application and proper in-line safety and alarm equipment is not simultaneously used, existing warranties shall be voided, and the Campbell Hausfeld disclaims any liability whatsoever for any loss, personal injury or damage.

General Safety


22.Drain tanks of moisture after each day’s use. If unit will not be used for a while, it is best to leave drain cock open until such time as it is to be used. This will allow moisture to completely drain out and help prevent corrosion of inside of tank.

23.Inspect tank yearly for rust, pin holes or any other imperfections that could cause it to become unsafe. NEVER weld or drill holes in air tank.

24.Household use only.

25.To reduce the risk of electrical shock, do not expose to rain. Store indoors.

Never attempt to repair or modify

a tank! Welding, drilling or any other modification will weaken the tank resulting in damage from rupture or explosion. Always replace worn or damaged tanks.

Drain liquid from tank daily.

Spraying Precautions

Do not spray flammable materials

in vicinity of open flame or near ignition sources including the compressor unit.

1.Spray in a well ventilated area, to keep fumes from collecting and causing health and fire hazards.

2.Do not spray in vicinity of open flames or other places where a spark can cause ignition. Do not smoke when spraying paint, insecticides, or other flammable substances.

3.Use a respirator when spraying.

4.Do not direct paint or other sprayed material at the compressor. Locate compressor as far away from

the spraying area as possible to minimize overspray accumulation on the compressor.

5.When spraying or cleaning with solvents or toxic chemicals, follow the instructions provided by the chemical manufacturer.

6.Do not smoke when spraying paint, insecticides, or other flammable substances.

7.Use a face mask/ respirator when

spraying and spray in a well ventilated area to

prevent health and fire hazards. 8. Do not direct airstream at body.

Installation (Continued)


1.Local electrical wiring codes differ from area to area. Source wiring, plug and protector must be rated for at least the amperage and voltage indicated on motor nameplate, and meet all electrical codes for this minimum.

2.Use a slow blow fuse type T or a circuit breaker.

Overheating, short circuiting and fire

damage will result from inadequate wiring, etc.

All wiring and electrical

connections should be performed by a qualified electrician. Installation must be in accordance with local codes and national electrical codes.

NOTE: 120 volt, compressor can be operated on a 120 volt, 15 amp circuit under the following conditions:

a.No other electrical appliances or lights are connected to the same branch circuit.

b.Voltage supply is normal.

c.Extension cords are of the minimum gauge specified in this instruction manual.

d.Circuit is equipped with a 15 amp circuit breaker or a 15 amp slow blow fuse type T.

Moisture in compressed air

Moisture in compressed air will form into droplets as it comes from an air compressor pump. When humidity is high or when a compressor is in

continuous use for an extended period of time, this moisture will collect in the tank. When using a paint spray

or sandblast gun, this water will be carried from the tank through the hose, and out of the gun as droplets mixed with the spray material.

Important: This condensation will cause water spots in a paint job, especially when spraying other than

water based paints. If sandblasting, it will cause the sand to cake and clog the gun, rendering it ineffective. A filter in the air line, located as near to the gun as possible, will help eliminate this moisture.

3.If above conditions cannot be met or if nuisance tripping of current protection device occurs, it may be necessary to operate compressor from a 120 volt, 20 amp circuit.

Grounding instructions

This product must be grounded. In the event of an electrical short circuit, grounding reduces the risk of electric shock by providing an escape wire for the electric current. This product is equipped with a cord having a grounding wire with an appropriate grounding plug. The plug must be

plugged into an outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.










Figure 4 - Grounding Method

Improper installation of the grounding

plug is able to result in a risk of electric shock. When repair or replacement of the cord or plug is required, do not connect the grounding wire to either flat blade terminal. The wire with insulation having an outer surface that is green with or without yellow stripes is the grounding wire.

Do not use a grounding adapter

with this product!

Never connect green (or green and yellow)

wire to a live terminal.

Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman when the grounding instructions are not completely understood, or when in doubt as to whether the product is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug

provided; if it does not fit the outlet, have the proper outlet installed by a qualified technician.

This product is for use on a nominal 120V circuit and has a grounding plug similar to the plug illustrated in Figure 4. Only connect the product to

an outlet having the same configuration as the plug. Do not use an adapter with this product.

Extension cords

To avoid loss of power and

overheating, it is better to use additional air hose instead of extension cords to reach work area.

Use only a 3-wire extension cord that has a 3-blade grounding plug, and

a 3-slot receptacle that accepts the plug on the product. Make sure your extension cord is not damaged. When using an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to carry the current your product draws. An undersized cord results in a drop in line voltage and loss of power and overheating. [The table on page 5 shows the correct size to use depending on cord length and nameplate ampere rating. When in doubt, use the next heavier gauge. The smaller the gauge number, the heavier the cord.]
