Title: High Pressure Engineering Co., Inc. H. P. Air Compressor 6-CFM 'Hurricane Model HPE 3000-7-L55'.
Author: Harter, JV
Abstract: The High Pressure Engineering Company, Incorporated, H. P. Air Compressor 6-CFM was evaluated to determine its suitability for U. S. Navy use as a protable air compressor. The unit tested was found to be unsatisfactory due to its inability to undergo a complete evaluation. A series of material failures occurred during the various attempts to operate the compressor. The test and evaluation was terminated after the motor to compressor drive shaft fractured due to fatigue failure. The cause of the various failures was excessive vibration of the prime mover being transmitted directly to the compressor. (Author)
