HAZARD
RISK OF BURSTING
Air Tank: On February 26, 2002, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission
published Release # 02-108 concerning air compressor tank safety:
Air compressor receiver tanks do not have an infinite life. Tank life is dependent upon
several factors, some of which include operating conditions, ambient conditions, proper
installations, field modifications, and the level of maintenance. The exact effect of these
factors on air receiver life is difficult to predict.
If proper maintenance procedures are not followed, internal corrosion to the inner wall of
the air receiver tank can cause the air tank to unexpectedly rupture allowing pressurized
air to suddenly and forcefully escape, posing risk of injury to consumers.
Your compressor air tank must be removed from service by the end of the year shown on
your tank warning label.
The following conditions could lead to a weakening of the air tank, and result in a violent
air tank explosion:
WHAT CAN HAPPEN HOW TO PREVENT IT
• Failuretoproperlydraincondensedwater
from air tank, causing rust and thinning of
the steel air tank.
• Drain air tank daily or after each use.
If air tank develops a leak, replace it
immediately with a new air tank or
replace the entire compressor.
• Modificationsorattemptedrepairstothe
air tank.
• Never drill into, weld, or make any
modifications to the air tank or its
attachments. Never attempt to repair a
damaged or leaking air tank. Replace
with a new air tank.
• Unauthorizedmodificationstothesafety
valve or any other components which
control air tank pressure.
• The air tank is designed to withstand
specific operating pressures. Never make
adjustments or parts substitutions to
alter the factory set operating pressures.
Attachments & accessories:
• Exceedingthepressureratingofairtools,
spray guns, air operated accessories,
tires, and other inflatables can cause
them to explode or fly apart, and could
result in serious injury.
• Follow the equipment manufacturers
recommendation and never exceed the
maximum allowable pressure rating of
attachments. Never use compressor to
inflate small low pressure objects such
as children’s toys, footballs, basketballs,
etc.
Tires:
• Over inflation of tires could result in
serious injury and property damage.
• Usea tirepressuregauge tocheckthe
tires pressure before each use and while
inflating tires; see the tire sidewall for the
correct tire pressure.
NOTE: Air tanks, compressors and similar
equipment used to inflate tires can fill
small tires very rapidly. Adjust pressure
regulator on air supply to no more than
the rating of the tire pressure. Add air in
small increments and frequently use the
tire gauge to prevent over inflation.

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,
CULUS, ETL
®
, CETL, CETLUS, have been evaluated by OSHA certified independent safety
laboratories and meet the applicable 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 lower level the motor will restart
automatically. The low pressure at which the motor automatically restarts is called "cut-in"
pressure.
Cut-Out Pressure: 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 automati-
cally shuts off, protecting your air tank from pressure higher than its capacity. The high pres-
sure at which the motor shuts off is called "cut-out" pressure.
Branch Circuit: Circuit carrying electricity from electrical panel to outlet.
