Young Heng compressor
« on: October 09, 2017, 07:08:16 PM »
Hi all, new here to this forum, and sorta new to PCP. Just wanted to add a comment. I got one of these "cheap" compressors, and it works quite well, so far.
https://www.ebay.com/i/322573136989?chn=ps&dispItem=1
I had been using a 90ci small Air Venturi tank, but just received my BIG 98 cf Air Venturi tank, in preparation for the arrival of my Air Force Texan 45 cal, that's coming tomorrow via UPS. So I hooked up the new BIG tank to my cheap compressor, and started filling from empty. I have been using a 5 gal bucket of water for cooling, and occasionally drop some ice cubes in to help. This evening, knowing it would take awhile to fill, I put 2 gal jugs of ice into the bucket, and let her rip. Was doing quite well, until I noticed a change in the tone of the compressor, sitting on my patio, and me inside in the AC. Went out, and the damned return water line had slipped out of the bucket, and pumped the bucket DRY! Young Heng temp gauge was showing a message of "HI" No chit Sherlock! Quickly shut her down, and re-filled with water and ice, and watched the temp drop back down to normal. Fired her back up, this time with me sitting there, like I was supposed to be doing in the first place, and she filled to 4000 psi in about 45 minutes, breaks included. For a "cheap" compressor, I'm impressed, and learned a lesson at the same time. I plan on making a more permanent installation, and plumbing water in from my home water system, instead of the bucket thing. All in all, an interesting experience. Can't wait for the BIG 45! :)

Some folks have has issues with this compressor because they installed the crankcase vent incorrectly. Apparently, the instructions are a bit vague.

One advantage the Omega compressors have, is a radiator with a fan, and an enclosed cooling system. Yes they are expensive, but if you're like me, and you shoot almost every day, you'll get to the point of needing something better too!

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

with the addition of the yong heng I shoot every day.when I am finished hunting for the day I used to pack it in and go home with what charge is left in rifle and what pellets are left in the clip.now I shoot both clips outs and not worry about air...for just filling rifles like I do the "cheap explosive yong heng" does the job so far and hasn't exploded yet.
  running out of water could do damage.hooking up permanent water lines would be the way to go...remember if it can go wrong it will.the weak link seems to be cooling system not the unit itself...but there are those that think it cheap and at any time will explode killing everything around it...
   not installing air breather will let unit run until crankcase pressure builds then unit will not start up,if running for a long time without breather in place could cause the dreaded explosion.but would that be the units fault or the guy that cant read Chinese?

Like most everything I order on-line, I search all the reviews, youtube videos, etc. etc. before I buy. It beats trying to de-cipher "chinglish" ;)
