Air compressors are used in a variety of settings including home, business, industrial and maintenance shops to name a few. When looking to purchase a unit you will want to know your needs and desires and the projects that you are needing and wanting to complete.
Filling tires with air.Whether you own a 4×4, a car, or a bike, you will eventually need to fill up your tires. While it is fairly easy for some of us to go to the nearest gas station to fill up our air with a tank-full of gas, it can cause problems in cold air areas where these tanks are often frozen when you need them the most. When this happens, you can turn to your own compressor for the security you need to know that your tires will never be flat.
The next size up includes single stage air compressors that use one piston to compress and pump air to a storage tank. They are usually rated up to 160 psi. These are ideal of DIY enthusiasts and those who want to use their industrial variable speed screw compressor for keeping hard surfaces like drives and decks free of leaves. They are more than adequate for sporting equipment, paint sprayers, and lighter duty nailers like those used with finishing nails. These compressors usually have a 1.5 to 3.5 horsepower motor and a small to medium sized tank.
Evaluate the requirements of the air tools that you will use. You need to know the particular pressure and volume requirements of the tools that you will use with your 12v air compressor. Different tools have different psi requirement that is why it is imperative that you know how much “pressure” you need. For instance, if you will use your air compressor for air brushing, then you need a 12v air compressor with a 5 liter tank capacity and at least 30 psi of sustained air pressure.
