Re: %Pg7+lVNJS

I'm pretty sure you'll be okay provided the cycles are adequately spaced, and the voltage is correct; these units are very durable. However, since the entire thing is sealed in a steel can, I wouldn't expect any overtemps to be apparent from outside until well after the event.

Basic temp safeties on industrial compressors are:
Oil temp
Discharge temp (the hot gases being pumped out).
Motor thermistors.

You could get the discharge temp by attaching a sensor, with plenty of thermal insulation round it, to the copper discharge pipe from the can. However, I doubt this would give you any useful information.

A couple of nice new low-stage Mycoms going for it:
