Air compressor id

Anyone have any tips on identifying an air compressor? There are no manufactures id tags on this unit, but the tank has a manufacturers name, capacities, max psi, and serial number. We salvaged this monster out of an elementary school that we "modernized" a few years ago. We used it in our shop, but switched out to a faster unit when we got tired of waiting for the machine to catch up. It has twin compressors on top of a 80 gal. , 200 psi max. tank. We just used the larger of the two heads. I am considering "relocating" the unit to my house and would like to obtain a little info on it before I spend much money. Any info is greatly appreciated.

Vince

The tank id may or be a clue as to what the compressor is. Many tanks are sourced as a component, and being a pressure vessel they will have thier own id plate.

Pictures would help greatly to figure this out.

Thanks to both of you for responding. I was able to ID the compressor from info supplied from a welding/fabricating forum. I appreciate the responses.
