1/2 HP Compressor w/Manifold MPC-120C
This is the 1/2 HP compressor and air filter (MPC-120C) combined with a 3-way heavy duty manifold.
The manifold includes an oil filled pressure gauge to reduce indicator vibration. This gives a more accurate reading of the actual psi of your system. Also attached is a pressure relief valve which opens at approximately 17 psi to prevent damage to the compressor. The gang valves are high-quality brass with 3/8" barbs connectors. A short section of heat resistant hose is included so as to reduce heat to your air hose connection. All high-quality components and very nice design.
This is a stand alone unit without any cabinet which is ready to install in your new or existing aeration system. The Matala Piston Compressor with air manifold is ideal as a replacement compressor for a variety of different manufacturer systems.
