49CFM Air Compressor Pump
Eaton Compressor delivers overwhelming performance to ensure that they meet the needs of the most demanding environments. Our Pumps require less maintenance, service and downtime than any other compressors in the Air Industry’s. All our Products are designed with exacting tolerance and specifications to deliver all the power that is needed at the job site, garage or shop.
This is our 20 HP, 3 Cylinder, 2-Stage, air compressor pump. The 20 HP pump will produce 49 CFM if ran with a 15HP motor at 600 RPM This pump can go to 200 PSI, but what we tell all of our customers is even though the compressor will go to a higher pressure, you should run it at the lowest pressure possible to maintain the air pressure needed. This will give you a higher CFM at a lower pressure and the compressor will run cooler with less compressor wear. This is true with any compressor on the market. Lower pressure combined with lower RPM will give you great results and a compressor that will last for many years. We have this style compressor, 3 Cylinder, in factories, body shops, and many tough applications that we sold over 20 years ago. If you are looking for a 20 to 30-year compressor pump, this is the one for you and is backed by our Eaton Compressor Factory Warranty.This pump runs COUNTER CLOCKWISE rotation as you are looking at the compressor fan or flywheel. This pump runs at a SUPER slow RPM of 650. Minimum RPM on this pump is 550. The belts are 3/4" from the center groove to center groove. The Flywheel size is 23".The reason this pump is so tough, is it is a 3-cylinder, or W design. If you look at the competition, they all offer reed valves or finger valves, but both are the same thing, just called different by some manufacturers. No matter what they are called, reed valves are a cheap design. With our unit, if you want to clean your valves, intake, or exhaust, you can take the valves out of the cylinder head by unbolting the valve retainer and just pull the valve right out of the head to inspect it. It is sealed with an aluminum washer under the valve seat…no head gasket to fool with when removing valves. Easy & Quick to take in and out!
This pump is all cast iron. When we say ALL CAST IRON, (not aluminum) that is what we mean. It has solid cast iron cylinder, cylinder heads, crankcase, flywheel, crank, and forged steel connecting rods – not aluminum! 99% of the pumps you see on the market today have aluminum rods. This style rod does not come close to a forged steel rod. I have seen many compressors over the 26 years of building compressors, and many of them break – aluminum rods. However, I have NEVER seen a steel connecting rod fail in one of our pumps. The forged steel connecting rods are a $120.00 option included on our pump. These rods also have a replaceable bearing on the crank journal and on the wrist pin journal. This is what most of the competition do not have.
This pump has large Timken-Style roller bearing on the crank ends on each end of the crankshaft. This ensures good crank stability and long compressor bearing life. Each cylinder is all cast iron with no sleeves or aluminum. All cast iron prevents cylinder distortion and egg-shaped cylinders when pump gets hot. This pump has 2 B-Section belt drive. Many of the pumps you see on the market have one belt…this is twin belt. Twin belt ensures better belt gripage and longer belt life. This pump has head unloaders. This is very nice for continuous run applications such as gasoline driven or electric driven high duty cycle applications. Head unloaders are an air cylinder in each head. When air is applied to them, they open or push the intake valves open allowing the pump to go into a free wheel mode. The cylinders are still moving in a free wheel mode, but it cannot compress the air because the intake valve is held open. This pulls cool air into the cylinder. The cool air absorbs the heat in the pump and blows it back out the intake valve. This is nice when you are sandblasting, etc., under heavy duty cycles. This pump has a site glass to view your oil level. NO START-UP KIT REQUIRED!!! This unit comes filled with oil and has filters on the unit.
