Air Compressor Buying Guide

Air Compressor Buying Guide

Air compressors are strictly application-based products. Smaller air compressors are used in a variety of DIY works like painting, polishing whereas bigger air compressor with high power motors is used in various commercial setups like automobile workshops, industries etc, for pneumatic applications.


Airbrush painting -

Airbrush Air Compressors for painting

If you are into airbrush painting which requires very detailed paint spray then with pen-type spray paint guns we would suggest you smaller painting airbrush air compressors which come in 3.5 L capacities. These air compressors are oil-free & soundless and only used for smaller paintwork that require a lot of precision. 

Spray Paint -

Spray Paint Gun

If you would want to spray paint with bigger spray paint guns over a large area we would suggest you go for air compressors that come with bigger tank capacities which can consistently supply you with a good amount of pressure owing to large tank & bigger motors. From smaller 1 Hp 9 Litre compressors to medium-sized 2 Hp 30 Liter compressor is the ideal range for such work. Various type of spray paint jobs can be done using these machines like Almirah painting, Painting on various metal fabrication structures, wall painting etc. can be done comfortably. 

AIR COMPRESSOR in Workshops/ Small Industries :

Workshop for small-medium vehicles - 

Commercial Air Compressors

For such workshops, commercial air compressors starting from 50 Liter capacity to up to 150-litre tank capacity can be used. They are normally used to operate various pneumatic impact wrenches that help to open several nut bolts in the vehicles. They are also used to inflate vehicle tyres in several workshops.

For large vehicles workshops & Small medium industries -

Hugh Tank Capacity of Air Compressors

For workshops with large vehicles, one can use compressors up to 225-litre tank capacities to up to depending on the work. Normally large vehicles mean workshops that do the maintenance for large four-wheelers like the SUVs, trucks, etc. Industries which have several pneumatic applications can also go for such air compressors. However, industries at time require more output pressure and hence can opt for double-headed(piston) air compressors.
