    What is the max temperature you guys let your Yong heng compressors rise to before shutting them down for a break?

    I believe the recommended max water recirc temperature is 65C. The stainless steel tubes get much much hotter, but they are fine – just don't touch them or you'll burn yourself. Mine usually runs up to about 50C by the time I'm done topping off my CF tank.

    Mine stabilises in the low to mid-fifties, depending on the season and ambient temperature. If you use a large enough bucket, more than 3 gallons, you shouldn't need to change the water. If it goes over 65 and the water Isn't very hot, I would be finding out why. With mine, the temperature rises quickly but once it hits it's operating temperature, it doesn't get any hotter.

    Mine flats off at 50 deg C but I found that the calibration of the thermometer is slightly off so my estimate of the actual temperature is about 46 deg C. I dont recycle the water but just let it run down the drain.

    The hottest mine has got is 41… but I have mine hooked up to a hose spigot so it always has very cold fresh water flowing through.

    Mine tops out at 55 under no load.  I only use it to fill my guns and it is usually only 1 minute run time and then the hottest I ever reached (on a 90 deg day) was 48.  I always leave the water pump on after shutting down and the temp falls off pretty quickly.  Oh and dont touch the SS tubes as they will burn pretty bad (ask me how I know).  Been thinking about trying to fit the tubes with cooling fins like my shop compressors have.

    After researching and getting cryptic responses from both the Yong Heng and Tuxing people, plus personal experience, here is my recommendation. Obviously keep the temp as low as possible. As long as the temp is under 60 C, no issues at all. Up to 65 C, I keep a closer watch on it, but not s serious concern. From 65 to 70 C, it’s a constant watch and I’m concerned. If it gets over 70 I’m shutting it down. The highest I’ve had my two cylinder Tuxing is 63 C, and that was after topping off 3 large SCBA tanks on a very warm day, about 40 minutes continuous run time.
