These mobile air compressors are beautiful. These compressors make it easy to have mobile air available wherever you are. They can also power high-quality pneumatic instruments. It can be overwhelming to choose a mobile compressor because there is so much information and so many decisions. Below steps will discuss the steps to choosing the right mobile air compressor for your job.
1. DETERMINE YOUR CFM & PSI REQUIREMENTS
First, determine your air requirements. Each pneumatic tool requires different amounts of air. This is why it is important to determine what your tools require as your first step.
Two metrics are used to measure air power: CFM or PSI. CFM, or "Cubic Feet Per Minute", refers to the volume of air being delivered. PSI, or "Pounds Per Square Inch", is the force that drives that air.
Most tools run at 80 to 110 PSI. You'll need an air compressor that can provide the correct CFM at the PSI required by your tools. You can determine your PSI requirements and CFM requirements by reviewing all of the tools you plan to use and checking with the manufacturer or manual. To determine your total CFM requirements, add together the CFM requirements for each tool if you intend to use multiple air tools at once.
2: CHOOSE A ROTARY AIR COMPRESSOR OR RECIPROCATING AC COMPRESSOR
Next, you will need to decide what type of compressor is best for your needs. VMAC only manufactures rotary screw compressors. They are more durable, have higher quality, provide constant air flow and can be used immediately.
