Air Compressors

"Air compressors are devices will that turn power into pressurized air. They can either be stationary or portable,
How do they work?
Air compressors use a gas or electric engine to suck in volumes of air and squeezes it in to a small space This process increases the pressure by making the volume smaller, This air is then stored in a receiver tank and can be used for many applications
What are air compressors used for?
Domestic: airbrush, pressure washers, tyre inflator, sand blaster, air blow gun, sanders, paintball gun
Industrial: power tools, sanders, pneumatic tools, grinders, diving equipment, nail guns, paint workshops
How to determine which air compressor you need?
You will need to consider a few things when deciding your power requirements air flow and tank size
Air flow
Compressors are measured in two ways pounds per square inch (PSI) and cubic feet per minute (CFM) these measurements determine the compressors effectiveness, you will need to identify what PSM and CFM your tools or equipment need.
If you are only going to run one tool at one time off the compressor then you will need to look at the tool that has the highest PSI and CFM requirement. If on the other hand you want to run multiple tools from the air compressor you will need to total up the PSI and CFMs of each of the tools
Tank size
Because the air is stored in the tank the size of the tank will impact how the compressor works, for tools and equipment that need continuous air a larger tank is better as this will be able to produce enough CFMs.
For tools that will intermittently be used a smaller tank is sufficient
This is normally between 1.5 and 6.5HP on an air compressor, higher ones are available but these are usually only used in industrial areas
Single stage or two stage compressors
Single stage air compressors have one or more cylinders, each cylinder will pump air into the storage tank. Also known as piston compressors, used where a lower PSI is needed
Two stage air compressors have two cylinders and air is pumped from one cylinder to the other cylinder and cooled then delivered into the storage tank, these are mainly used where high pressure is needed a they have double the pressure
Types of compressors
Rotary screw compressors
Reciprocating air compressors
Centrifugal Compressors
Silent air compressors
These are suited in areas where low noise levels are required i.e. offices, laboratories or for use in the medical industry
