Air compressors

When you use an air compressor very intensively, for example by using a certain air tool for a long time, it is important that your compressor has a large boiler capacity. The larger the boiler is, the longer it takes for the boiler to come under a minimum pressure and the engine starts to fill the boiler. In a number of applications, such as paint spraying, it is important to have a constant pressure. With a small boiler (for example, 5 or 6 liters), you will notice that the pressure will decrease after a while. As a result, the compressor no longer has the power to drive the air tool. This could result in an uneven paint result when spraying paint, because the compressor will give less and less pressure. A small boiler, on the other hand, increases the mobility of the device.

Not every compressor is suitable for driving any type of air tools. Based on various specifications such as net air output, suction power, maximum air pressure and boiler size, we estimate whether a compressor is suitable for driving a certain type of air tool.

The advantages of oil-lubricated compressors are that they are quieter than oil-free compressors and that they are generally more durable.
