Question

Anyone Using A Diesel Compressor At Their Shop?


Is it parked inside or outside?

I don't have 3 phase power available but have Michigan winters to deal with.

Re: Anyone Using A Diesel Compressor At Their Shop?


YUP! i DO

I ONLY HAVE A 30' X 30' SHOP

When I blast stuff, i have it next to the shop and run the hoses
through a little trap door on the side.

when nothings in the shop, I put it in there.

Running it in the shop? only if you can get the exhaust out side and some way to get fresh air in to it.

I live out in the boondocks and don't have 3 phase either. ..

love to get a electric air compressor for the shop, but some of us have to live like were are on the walking dead...

Same here, just like Dyer, outside when it's warm, otherwise mine tends to shut down due to high heat if it's inside, winter time it's inside...a 185 compressor going when it's -20 degrees, makes it about 85 inside my shop, no heat on, garage doors wide open, working in a t shirt and jeans all winter long!!!

Dakota,

Do you do anything else besides pipe the exhaust outside? How big is your shop?

I would like to run my 375 inside but will probably need to push it outside in the morning to run and back in at night.

They sell a Rubber hose that is for high heat exhaust.
fire dept use them to start the trucks in the garages before heading out
Sorry dont know were to get them, but do know there BIG $$$

my shop is 30 x 30 with a wall down the middle (and a door for entry)
I bast on one side and its sealed shut anyway the other side is the "clean side" kind of

i had a pipe from the last job that was high heat, I would stick it on the exhaust and out to a old fan (metal) that would help pull the fumes out.
With the door up it still was 70 deg in the winter with the air off the motor.

with my new compressor, its on the trailer and don't fit into the garage, plus the pipe had feet and despaired to a new home..

so i run it out side, even in the winter.
