Chicago Pneumatic Premium Series RCP-C581V - 5hp Reciprocating Air Compressor, 80 Gallon Vertical Receiver, 18 CFM, 208-230V/1Ph, PN: 8090300909

Are you on the hunt for a durable, long-lasting, and efficient reciprocating air compressor for your industrial needs? Look no further than the Chicago Pneumatic RCP-C581V—the epitome of quality and performance in a 5hp compressor. Ideal for heavy-duty applications like large-scale construction, finishing, and sanding, this machine is your go-to choice for excellence and reliability.

Top Features:

  • All Cast Iron Pump: Built for durability, the pump is designed with longevity in mind, reducing the risk of wear and tear.

  • Low RPM: A slow turning cast iron pump, usually paired with a 7.5hp motor, is slowed down to work efficiently with a 5HP motor. The result is a quieter operation and increased reliability.

  • High-Quality Baldor Motor: Paired with an industrial-grade Baldor motor for optimal performance and durability.

  • Start-Stop Pressure Switch Control: Easy-to-use, this feature simplifies the operation, making it a plug-and-play device.

  • High Flow Wire Belt-guard: For maximum cooling and safety.

  • 80-Gallon ASME/CRN Certified Vertical Receiver: Offers ample storage for compressed air, making it ideal for bigger projects that demand higher CFM.

  • 18 ACFM @ 100 PSI / 16 ACFM @ 175 PSI: Offers substantial air flow rates, fulfilling the needs of most industrial applications.

Enhanced Longevity:

One of the standout features of the RCP-C581V is its all cast iron piston compressor pump, constructed with quality elements such as a finned discharge tube for cooler operation, tapered roller bearings, and automotive-style wrist pins. Unlike compressors that utilize reed or finger valves, this Chicago Pneumatic compressor uses disc and spring valves, which are not only more reliable but also easier to replace without disassembling the entire pump.

Unparalleled Reliability:

Heat generation is a common issue in 5hp air compressors, but the RCP-C581V mitigates this with its low RPM, resulting in less heat and consequently, less water in your compressed air lines. The reduced heat also contributes to the compressor’s extended lifespan.

Ready to Run:

The RCP-C581V is pre-filled with oil and comes in a "plug and play" setup. Connect the power, and you're ready to go! This unit is part of Chicago Pneumatic’s esteemed "Iron Series" and comes with a 2-Year CP Secure Warranty, with no additional purchase required.
