Photo United Pump and Power Compressor - Application?

The two photos attached are for a two-cylinder, vertical compressor. The first is a view of the compressor. The second is of the tag.

I would appreciate any information about the possible applications for this compressor or any other useful information about it.

Based on it's size and setup, my gut feeling is that your compressor may have been built to provide holding pressure for an early fire-sprinkler control system.
