Frequently Asked Questions ?

Air compressors provide compressed air for applications such as filling gas cylinders with high-pressure clean air, providing pressurized clean air for operating pneumatic HVAC systems or tools, filling tires and a wide variety of other applications across business industries such as Automobile, Medical, Oil & Chemical, Pharmaceutical and more.
You always choose a compressor with a bit more than you need. The most important truth is the volume of air that you will be using and at what pressure FAD CFM. Please read our nice compressor guide here or give us a call.

Generally, most air tools will take around 70-100 PSI, and will consume less than 10 CFM, You have to consult the manufacturer of your tool for exact air requirements.
Any air compressors with air intake filters need to be cleaned 7 to 10days once. In anu case If your filter has built up so much debris that you can’t get it completely clean, or the filter is torn, you should replace it right away.
Normally, 110 volts is sufficient for a small compressor. Larger air compressors may take as much as 460 volts.
You can drain your tank water manually or purchase an automatic drain valve to remove the water automatically. If water is becoming a big problem, consider investing in a more appropriately-sized air dryer.
For most applications, a reciprocating compressor is sufficient. If you need a compressor that runs continuously day and night, you need a rotary screw compressor.
This answer depends on how often you run your compressor. If you are running your compressor occasionally, then annual service would be fine.
If you are running your compressor routinely, then 3 months once service may be needed.
