According to business owners, air compressors are indeed important. Compressors have many uses, as 70% of manufacturers use compressors for machine tools, spray painting, material handling, and separation equipment.
So, if you are considering compressors, check out this buying guide to help you.
* Choosing the right size
In purchasing a compressor, you have to know which size to use. A too-small compressor could waste your time because of waiting for pressure to build up. However, using a big compressor could also waste resources.
* Choose a compressor that gives enough airflow
The airflow in a compressor is measured in cubic feet. It should be greater than the operational CDM requirement and less than the maximum output. Also note that in considering a compressor, the actual cubic feet per minute will give a more accurate measurement.
* Understand the work environment
Knowing this will help you determine the drive system. It should be an electric motor or a gasoline engine. Know that electric motors are affordable and only minimal maintenance is required.
* Knowing the tools needed
Once you know the tools you need, it will help you determine the psi that compressors will provide. Of course, it will help you get the job done right and quickly.
* Know the horsepower needed
This will ensure that compressors would produce enough air. The machine with high horsepower could run hot and only have a short service life.
