This article will go through the process in which you start up the compressor.

Starting the Compressor

Please do the following:

  1. Make sure that the mains voltage corresponds to the electrical data on the rating plate. The permissible variance amounts to no more than 5 %.
  2. Make sure that the On/Off switch (3) is set to the “OFF 0” position (see Fig. G). 
  3. Make sure that the drain cock (10) for condensed water is closed (see Fig. A above). 
  4. Check the oil level at the viewing window of the oil drain plug (13) and, if necessary, add oil. 
  5. Connect the mains plug to a properly installed socket with earthing contact. 
  6. Connect a pneumatic tool to one of the two quick couplings (14 / 16) so that it audibly locks into place (see Fig. A above). The adjustable control pressure can be determined on the left quick coupling and the uncontrolled tank pressure can be determined on the right quick coupling. 
  7. Set the On/Off switch to the “ON 1” position by pulling it out slightly (see Fig. G). The compressor has now been switched on and is starting up.
  8. Turn the pressure regulator (15) (see Fig. A): • clockwise to increase the control pressure, • anticlockwise to decrease the control pressure. You can read the set control pressure on the control pressure gauge (17).
  9. You can read the pressure of the air contained in the compressed air tank (8) on the tank pressure gauge (18).
  10. The tank pressure is not controlled, that is, it cannot be adjusted. 
  11. Push the On/Off switch down so that it is set to the “OFF 0” position to switch the compressor off. 
  12. If you no longer wish to use the compressor, pull the mains plug out of the socket. 
  13. Vent the compressor via the connected pneumatic tool. 
  14. Take the pneumatic tool off of the compressor by slightly pushing the quick coupling back and pulling the pneumatic tool off (see Fig. A). 
  15. Let the compressor cool off completely. 
  16. Clean the compressor.
