Scrapper of metal
90-125 time is a full 30 seconds faster. That’s a significant improvement.
Separated the two tanks this afternoon. Checked belt tension.
Turns out the belt was loose, likely because it was brand new so has worn in.
Cut the 0-60 psi time in more than half; 3 mins vs 1:22.
Time to 125 psi is now 3:22 on a single tank.
That’s a massive improvement.
It’s about 10” from the wall.Not sure how much room there is from wall to the compressor, but air flow for cooling compressor head could be a problem also, as a lot of pumping time when using blasting cabinet.
I’ve always been told that you can damage air tools by not giving them enough airflow. Probably not applicable to a sandblaster tho, but that’s the reason I run big air lines and the largest fittings.Some of the quick connects are very poor for air flow, in hand with too small fittings and lines attached to them, a big problem causing not enough air, is leaks in the system, which also can over work the compressor/motor. You might have 120 psi static, but only be a getting lower pressure at useage point, due to small lines, poor connectors, fittings, etc. when in use. Looong lines are a problem too. A pressure gauge at the useage point can be an eye opener.
