This Industrial Hulk 5 HP 2 Stage 1 Phase Vertical 80 Gallon Piston Air Compressor is designed for up to 50,000 hours industrial use with proper maintenance. This unit features our low RPM pumps and delivers 18 SCFM @ 100 PSI. This unit also features our WHISPER Silencer Unit for quiet operation.
The whisper series compressors reduce stationary compressor DBA ratings by as much as 25%! A noise suppression device was first conceived by EMAX engineers after feedback from competitor compressor users revealed a large number of complaints regarding the extreme noise level of their compressors in a work environment. Stationary air compressor noise levels typically require owners to incur the added expense of a building or structure to house the compressor in an attempt to reduce noise in the work environment. The Whisper can be installed and operated in all garage, farm, shop, and industrial applications which eliminate the need for traditionally expensive and often inadequate separate buildings or structures to house the air compressor. The Whisper silent air systems are already installed on the back of the tank with brackets that are fabricated for easy removal and low profile.
The Whisper dissipates compressor intake noise by channeling the intake air through a series of baffle plates and pre-filter media within the silencer cabinet. As a result, the piston intake noise is trapped and dissipated within the silencer structure. It also acts as a secondary filtration for cleaner air.
At the core of our 5hp 2 Stage Hulk compressors is our pump. These pumps are SUPER quiet in operation and built to last! We start with a solid cast iron crankcase. Unlike some competitor’s aluminum body crankcases – our solid cast iron crankcase will ensure stable crankshaft alignment and will handle more work load under heavy load conditions.
This unit has a pre-wired condor starter and pressure switch built into one. The pressure switches have an adjustable screw which allow you to adjust your pressure higher or lower.
We’re always concerned about durability and about your safety in everything we build. Along with this philosophy, our air tanks are manufactured in the USA and are ASME code compliant in 50 states including California.
Controls and Components
Hulk by Emax Compressor use only top quality components on our compressors.
100% Brass Check Valves with Teflon Seating
All check valves on our compressors are all brass with a Teflon seating. This reduces tank noise when the compressor is running because the Teflon seating is much quieter than other materials and insulates noise when valves are opening and closing during the compression stage.
100% Brass ASME Safety Valves
For your safety all safety valves are 100% brass and comply to ASME code. Valves are preset and sealed for correct settings. In the event that your compressor would not turn off, our safety valves open keeping compressor from building too high of a pressure level in the tank. This will help to avoid the potential of tank rupture.
Top Quality Plumbing Fittings
Ensures proper sealing when connected to the tank.
High Quality 100% Brass Ball Valves
They are used for turning air on and off from the air receiver. Extended tank water drain pipe plumbed out the front of the unit with a 1/4″ ball valve handle for easy tank draining. Eliminates the hassle of draining the tank with the typical petcock style drain under the tank.
Motor Pulley & Belts
We use taper lock style 2-groove pulleys (not single groove). We also use dual 2-groove, B-Style belts to drive our pumps. This combination is best for a couple of reasons. First, dual belts ensure long belt life and yield low vibration which makes for smoother, more quiet operation because the dual belts do not have to be as tight as with a single belt setup. The tighter the belts (as with a single belt setup) the more load on the compressor pump and motor bearings which decreases the life of both. Second, our taper lock pulleys are much better than a fixed bore pulley with a set screw. A taper lock design will lock the pulley in position to the motor shaft allowing it not to loosen or move on the motor shaft.
Our 4-year warranty should not only give you, our customer, complete confidence in our product – but also in our commitment to excellence in quality, support, and service.
