Jerri Murphy Air Compressor August 10th, 2018 - 11:46:20
I found a nice air powered air gun at a local hardware store. At first it seemed just perfect. I was about to buy it when I noticed on the little description card that it was not recommended to be used with a compressor smaller than 6 gallons. Dang! The portable air compressor I had was only a small 2 gallon pancake compressor. That just wouldn't cut it. I had to buy a larger unit so that I could get the gun, so that I could finish the house project. See how this goes.
So air compressor manufacturer will find ways to create breakthroughs to be able to meet industries changing needs. But the most important thing you need to look into is safety.
One of the most important things that you need to pay attention to is the noise factor. Most of airbrush compressors are extremely loud, so you need strong nerves to withstand all that. More expensive and more sophisticated models do not have these problems, but the question is how much it's worth. You have to find a balance when it comes to your needs and budget.
I hope this information has been useful to you. Buying an air compressor for your woodworking shop can be a fairly expensive investment when you consider piping, regulators, hoses, water traps, wiring and electricians. You will want to buy a compressor that is capable of the tasks you will be using it for but no more than that. Purchasing the wrong air compressor can be a very expensive mistake. My motivation in writing this has been to give you the knowledge you will need to select the right one.
Air output of a compressor is expressed in standard cubic feet per minute (SCFM) or just cubic feet per minute (CFM). Not all 5 HP compressors put out the same volume of air per minute. This is a function not only of motor horsepower but also the efficiency of the air compressor pump the motor is powering. The higher the CFM, the less your air compressor will have to cycle on and off to keep up with the demands you are putting on it. A small compressor pump on a huge tank will produce no more air than on a small tank. The only difference will be in the number of times the compressor cycles on an off each hour and the time it takes to recompress the tank on each cycle. In the final analysis, you need to pay attention to SCFM (or CFM) more than you do motor horsepower or tank size. Air flow is the end product of any compressor and the CFM must be sufficient to the job at hand.
