Engine Bleed Pressure in C-130 Technical Posted December 31, 2020 at sea level, a 0/low time compressor will make 80 to 85psi at normal ground idle. This increases as throttle is advanced towards take off an TIT increases. The highest I have ever seen was 130psi. This was a 0 time engine where the CDP fell in "high" zone of the compressor graph. Compressor performance is based on OAT and pressure altitude.
