Q: What is the duty cycle of this air compressor
by Rusty from Louisiana on April 15, 2016

A: Most manufacturers do not state the duty cycle of their compressors, but a 50% duty cycle is common for most consumer grade compressors.
We recommend sizing the compressor 1.25-1.5 times the CFM of your tool for continuous operation. If the compressor does not produce enough air volume, CFM, then the pressure will drop.
Reciprocating (Piston) compressors are not designed for continuous or 100% duty cycle. The compressor will cycle off & on if it is sized correctly.
Just add up the CFM of the air tools that will be in use at the same time to get the minimum CFM required.

Q: BOUGHT A NEW IRON HORSE 60 GALLON AIR COMPRESSOR.
Hooked up 120 wiring to the compressor.
turns on for 30 sec to 1 min.and trips the breaker.
What am I doing wrong

by DOnald Cohn from Florida on February 15, 2016

A: Donald,

This compressor is designed specifically to operate on 208 or 230 volt power. It will not operate properly on a 120 volt circuit. You would need to contact an electrician to have your outlet re-wired for 208 or 230 volt power in order for this unit to run correctly.

Great Garage Compressor
I bought one of a few months back. I've piped the garage with black pipe and we are off to the races. Compressor is fairly quiet and reaches capacity fairly quick. This thing is leagues above my old 30 gallon direct drive model.

I did do a little digging on the specs. From what I have found the compressor is capable of 150 PSI and the tank MAWP is 170 PSI. The pressure relief valve on the tanks is rated for 160 PSI. Mind you I see no need to push the machine past 135 PSI but I think it could... more

Cfm Vs. Maximum Pressure Rating
The compressor works fine, however the maximum working pressure is only 135 psi, not the listed 150 psi in the specs.
Steve, the Air Compressor Expert

Matt,
The “Max. Pressure” specification on air compressors is not the maximum working pressure, it is the maximum pressure the tank is rated for. It is the same for every air compressor on our site, and is based on information provided by the manufacturers.

The maximum function of each air compressor is described by the CFM (cubic feet per minute) at a specific pressure- 40 PSI, 90 PSI, and/or 100 PSI, depending on the size of the air compressor pump. For example, this air compressor is rated to produce 11.2 CFM @ 90 PSI.

This is so you can determine the air tools the compressor can run, since they are rated by the air they consume, in CFM.

Quality Shop Compressor
Bought the 3.2hp-60gal Iron Horse Compressor back in 2005 locally. I am very happy with it. The quality and durability are superb!

I've stripped and painted 2 vehicles since then. I've run it 4-5 hours straight a few times and it gets hot, but no issues. It's still on the original belt, finish is still perfect, pressure switch and shut off switch are still good. Bleed valve on the bottom still seals nicely.

I would say it is medium-loud but it doesn't sound like it's destroying... more
