BendPak LS580V-601 5-Hp Air Compressor, 80-Gallon Vertical Tank, 60HZ 1 Phase
BendPak air compressors have a well-earned reputation for high performance and dependability. When you’re concentrating on a project, you shouldn’t have to worry about the temperature or moisture inside your air compressor; you just need a unit that works as hard as you do. Our highly efficient TRI-MAXTM line of air compressors are perfect air-pumping power-houses that feature rugged cast-iron construction, reliable belt-drive BaldorTM motors, high-quality Manchester Tanks, true copper piping for cooler operation, pressure control and extra large pumps. 100% cast iron construction a true industrial-grade air compressor like our TRI-MAX™ models feature 100% cast-iron construction on the pump, block and heads. An air compressor pump is just like a car engine and, as you know, almost all car engines are made from cast iron. Cast iron is the most durable material when utilized on a high-use, high-temperature applications. Racecar engines may use aluminum for weight reduction, but these engines last only a few races before they must be rebuilt.
Bendpak air compressors have true copper piping and back to basic chemistry: when compressed air heats and then rapidly cools, you get condensation. The harder you work your compressor, the warmer it will become and the more moisture you’ll have, resulting in a couple unfavorable conditions. Moisture that goes through the airlines will eventually go to your air tools. And wet air that accumulates in the bottom of the tank causes excessive rusting and jeopardizes the integrity of your tank. Clearly, moisture is one of your compressor’s worst enemies. The solution? Keep the air cool so that condensation never shows up in the first place. That’s why all our TRI-MAX™ units employ copper pipe. It dissipates the heat and resists rust like a champ.
BendPak air compressors have a pressure controlled switch that automatically maintains the set pressure at the control discharge. A drop in system pressure closes the pressure switch and kick-starts the air compressor. When the pressure switch is satisfied, it will stop and the unloader valve exhausts the air between the compressor and the check valve. This allows the compressor to begin its next cycle without any head pressure. The pressure gauge allows the installer to see the start / stop pressure settings and to adjust as necessary. In the event of a closed air line or excessive pressure buildup in the compressor discharge, the safety valve in the line protects the compressor from any and all potential damage. Lower revolutions per minute is one of the main advantage of belt-drive compressors is that the pump can spin considerably slower than the motor, increasing efficiency and reducing wear and tear. Pumps on direct-drive compressors turn much faster because the pump is connected directly to the motor shaft and maintains a speed equal to the motor. Most electrical motors spin at a ridiculous 2,850 or 3,450 rpm. Our TRI-MAX™ models use a belt-drive so the pump can run at a lower rate
