Superior Design for Industry Leading Pumps
Low Vibration and Durability
last thing you want to worry about is your compressor breaking down in
the middle of a job. The NorthStar® 80-Gallon Vertical Electric Air
Compressor has been engineered with superior technology to keep you
working without interruption. Innovative Low Vibration Technology (LVT)
gives you a dynamically balanced pump for smooth operation and long
service life. Bearings are placed on both ends of the pump’s crankshaft
for superior support and less wear and tear. The result is reliable,
dependable operation of your NorthStar air compressor, year after year.
Longer Pump Life
can be a powerful enemy to the longevity of your air compressor pump.
That’s why this NorthStar 80-Gallon Vertical Electric Air Compressor has
been engineered with a W-style cylinder orientation to eliminate
hotspots and provide consistent cooling, resulting in longer pump life.
The pump cylinders, heads and crankcase are made of cast iron for
extra-long service life. And the pump utilizes premium-quality
floating-type Swedish steel valves for trouble-free performance. Thanks
to this excellent technology, you can count on your NorthStar® air
compressor to perform flawlessly for many years.
Powerful Leeson Electric Motors
it comes to power, the NorthStar 80-Gallon Vertical Electric Air
Compressor is equipped with the best, a Leeson single-phase 230V
electric motor that delivers maximum torque with the lowest possible
amperage. This top-quality motor is built with all-copper windings to
handle low voltage conditions and provide plenty of starting torque.
Running amps are reduced by high-efficiency windings and premium flux
density in the stator lamination steel. The manual reset thermal
protector provides safety and prevents unwanted starts.
Longer Service Life
durable Leeson motor runs on double sealed ball bearings, providing
extended life in high moisture and dusty conditions. Bearings are
lubricated with Exxon Polyrex EM grease to withstand high temperatures.
Dual capacitor covers are sealed to prevent water from entering. The
motor is also equipped with condensate drains to draw off harmful
moisture and extend service life.
ASME-Certified Vertical Tanks
Built for the Long Haul
air receiver tank for the NorthStar 80-Gallon Vertical Electric Air
Compressor is made of high-quality welded steel to provide many years of
reliable service. The tank has a weather-resistant powder-coat finish
to withstand harsh conditions in any season. The base-ring design
protects the pressure tank from any deformation caused by the feet being
bolted down to an uneven surface. The remote tank drain is plumbed out
to the base ring for easy accessibility.
Dependable High-Quality Valves
ASME-certified 80-gallon vertical tank is fitted with top-quality
valves for long service life. The pressure relief valves are ASME
certified. The ball valves are CSA and FM approved and UL listed for
reliable long-term performance.
