5 HP Two Stage Air Compressor 80 Gallon Tanks for Sale

Here are a few tips/questions when shopping for smaller 5 hp two stage air compressor on a 60 or 80 gallon tanks for your shop,

1.  What’s your budget?  If your budget is under $1,000.00, then go to your local hardware shop for a small, single stage, 115V unit.  A true 2-stage air compressor (175 psi) should cost around $1250-$3,000.  Two-stage piston air compressors are typically industrial units like; Ingersoll Rand, Chicago Pneumatic, Quincy Compressor, Saylor-Beall and Champion/Gardner Denver.

 

2.  What is your power source, is it 115V/1/60 or 3-phase?   Typically 2 stage air compressor(s) run on 230/1/60, not 115V.

3.  Slow turning pumps are quieter, last longer and typically offer more air.

4.  Where are you installing the compressor?   If you’re thinking of a closet, rethink it or install air conditioning and exhaust as air compressors do not work well in hot and dirty environments.   If you want to reduce the air compressor noise, here are a few tips:

– Install a Inlet Filter Silencer
– Remove the air filter and install it outside.
– Install a rotary screw air compressor or factory packaged quiet piston air compressor :)

5.  Shipping, ship the compressor with a lift gate (residential delivery) & inspect the air compressor before signing the bill of lading (BOL).

6.  Secure the air tank to the floor, snug the tank down with lag bolts, don’t tighten the bolts too tight as you still want the compressor move.  If you tighten it too much, you could stress the welds on the tank.

7.  Put a maintenance plan together, install factory compressor oil.  If you see signs of water in your lubricant/oil, run the compressor up to temperature and burn it off or change the oil more often.

Remember, you get what you pay for.  Spend a little more for the quality.  Feel free to contact anyone at Compressor World to help you in your search.  866.778.6572 or info@compressorworld.com

What to do with your old air compressor?

I know what your thinking, you just purchased a new compressor and your asking yourself;
“what am I going to do with this old air compressor?”  No worries, you have a few great options;

  1. If your old air compressor still has some life and you have room, keep it as a back up compressor.  Back up air compressors are UNDER RATED.  If your new compressor sneezes; the back up compressor is there to keep your plant running.   If your new compressor is due for service; the back up compressor is there to keep your plant running.  Calculate how much your plant generates per hour and calculate 8 hours of down time, it’s worth having back up.  If you do hook up the old air compressor as a back up machine, stagger the pressure switches so the old compressor is set 5-10 psi lower than the load set point on the new compressor.
  2. If you purchased or have a reliable back up compressor then sell the old compressor on any social or online auctions like craigslist for local listings or ebay for online auctions.  A good rule of thumb would be $100 per 1 hp for good condition or $125 per 1 hp for great condition.  If it’s a well known brand and in great-excellent condition, then you may be closer to $150-$200 per hp.  In any sale, it’s always recommended to take quality photos.   And try to clean up the old compressor as the cleaner it looks, the more you’ll sell it for.
  3. If your old air compressor has been decommissioned then its best to cut a large whole or cut the tank in half with a torch or cutting tool.  This can eliminate any liability if someone else takes the old compressor tank from your property.  We don’t recommend it but we have heard some people cutting the old tanks into bbq pits                                                          (I hope they used food grade oil :)
  4. Salvage the old compressor for scrap.  Many clients will separate the metals for better scrap value; steel, copper (electric motor), cast (pump), etc.

Feel free to contact anyone at the Compressor World office to discuss your old air compressor application.  Compressor World specializes in selling air compressors, air dryers and tanks to any and all fabrication, manufacturing, university, medical, automotive and granite fabrication shops

Air Compressor Pump Safety Valves

Today we had a client call us about his air compressor pump not working properly and only holding 60 psi to his plant.   It’s easy to sell someone a new compressor but to find the right machine for their application, our staff asked for a picture of their current system.  From this picture we can evaluate and find a solution.

When we received the picture, we found a piece of a granite countertop holding down their safety valve on the second stage.

This is a big SAFETY NO, NO!   The safety valve is their for a reason…

If the safety valve “pops” it is best to;

– Replace the Safety Valve
– Inspect/replace the Check Valve
– Inspect/replace the Compressor 1st and 2nd Stage Valves

It is NOT recommended to remove the safety valve or hold it down with any item!

If the compressor pump has discoloration on the discharge pipe, this could be a result of the compressor pump reaching it’s upper end of it’s duty cycle and maybe it’s time to replace it with a new, larger compressor pump (increase the hp size) or with a new rotary screw air compressor.  Rotary screw air compressors can operate at 100% duty vs a piston pump is rated at 60%.  Piston pumps require a “time out” to cool the oil in between cycles.

If the compressor items are in good condition and the compressor pump is beyond repair, replace the compressor pump only and retrofit a new style on the air tank.  This is a inexpensive solution vs. buying a new air compressor system.

Tips for Keeping a Compressor Pump Running;
– Size the pump correctly
– Change the compressor oil frequently.  Piston oil is inexpensive, change the oil every 4-6 weeks
– Keep the Inlet filters clean and replace accordingly.  Pipe the intake filters outside if the compressor pump is near an outside wall.  Make sure you have outdoor filter assemblies to protect the filter element
– Drain the tank weekly or install a tank drain
– Keep the compressor pump clean

Remember, your air compressor is the lifeline for your business.  Spending short money on maintenance can eliminate compressor downtime and keep your business in operation.

Air Compressor Service & Back Up Air Compressors

What to expect when you are having service performed on your Air Compressor

It’s that time again, time to perform your scheduled preventative maintenance service, “PM”, on your air compressor system.  What will that mean for your business?  Will there be time where you will be out of air?  How long will it last?  When can we start production again?  These are the common questions when scheduling service. 

During a PM, there are many variables that determine the time of “down time” in the air production, as well as ways you can minimize this down time and eliminate it all together.

  • A “typical” PM on an Air Compressor (Rotary Screw, Piston, Oilless Scroll) if under 50 Horsepower, will range from 2-6 hours on site.
    • This includes Air filter, oil filter, separator, belt change and complete oil change (if applicable to the system).
    • A full inspection of the equipment, checking of the electrical connections and tightening as needed, cleaning out any dryer cooler & condensers and drains checked for blockage.
    • Any inline filtration elements are changed as well as oil/water separator elements
    • System as a whole is checked and any issues identified during the visit are documented and brought to the person in charge’s attention and addressed for quote for repair or noted for observation.
  • Units over 50 Horsepower or systems where there are multiple units can range from 4+ hours to multiple visits on site.  It will all depend if you are having a minor or major service on your compressor.
  • Down Time can range from 30 minutes to multiple hours depending on the system.  Having a reliable backup air compressor to take over during a PM helps eliminate down time all together.

Is Having Backup Air Compressors Worth it?

Quick Answer… YES… having a backup compressor is one of the best decisions to make if your business depends on air.  Whether you are a large production plant, with dozens of machines working or you work out of your home garage, your need for having a constant flow of air is vital to your business and keeping production going.

  • Backup compressors eliminate having down time with your air. 
  • Multiple machines in tandem will evenly disburse the working hours
    • Creating an environment where wear and tear will be minimized
    • PM expenses will be minimal and routine
  • Scheduled PM services for both compressors can be worked on at the same visit. 
    • No down time, and no lag in air

Backup compressors are also essential in production as if the compressor goes down and is not usable, you are still with air and won’t lose production time.

Without a backup unit, and your compressor goes down, so does your production… which means lost revenue.   

So do not sell your back up compressor on craigslist or eBay… keep it for back up!
