I agree that the format made it suspect, before I even knew the content. My comment was mostly directed at the fact that it appears a chinese version of the Bauer now exists. If one were shopping for a Bauer, it would now be prudent to be sure it is the genuine item & not a knock off.
This guy highlights some of the reasons why a 3 phase motor & a drive can be advantageous. He manages to run a Bauer Jr with a 2hp motor off a drive that runs off a 3kw inverter that runs off a big battery bank. He takes about 45 minutes to fill a scuba tank, so he is belted for a slow running...
This is more than a little scary -
This top 6 list of compressors is all Chinese junk. #3 looks like a Bauer Jr. Buyer beware when buying second hand or grey market. It appears that knock offs are out there.
I found this chart in the 2005 Bauer Jr II manual -
The filter with no CO removal had slightly better capacity numbers. It was on the previous page.
The manual can be found here - JUNIOR
For my fellow Americans out there:
20c = 68f
25c = 77f
30c = 86f
35c = 95f
You may have already answered a question that I was going to ask. I was wondering if the CO sensors were able to work correctly at 2k-5kpsi. Your post would seem to indicate that a bleeder is attached to the output & a small amount is sent to the sensor then expelled as waste gas.
The auto dump system is set up with normally open unloader valves on both the primary coalescer & the P0 stack. When power is lost, they open & everything gets dumped. I should probably add manual valves in series so that I can isolate the system when the unit shuts down. The Brownies auto...
The compressor I am working with now, has auto drains. The drain system dumps all pressure out of the stack when the system shuts down. Because of this, I am concerned that the cartridge will degrade much faster than normal. I am looking for two things. I am looking for a way to indicate...
I don't have before pictures. They would have been too terrible to take. I will get some mid project pictures as a starting point.
You are the second person to point me towards filter techs. They are a great source of parts & supplies.
Actually, I need to thank you for nudging me to get to work on that thing. It was not as bad as I thought it would be.
Pictures aren't quite ready yet, but I have made a lot of progress.
3 failed high pressure fittings have been identified & replaced. It turns out that the cylinder valves...
