WHAT IS A PORTABLE AIR COMPRESSOR AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
A portable air compressor is a relatively small, easily moved and transported air compression unit ideal for a variety of home and commercial uses. Most often, portable units use a piston compression design. While these smaller, lighter units may not be enough for industrial jobs requiring a great deal of compressed air, they are still sufficiently powerful for use in DIY projects and certain commercial jobs. Portable air compressors can often be found in home workshops, garages, and other places where only a limited amount of power is required.
SELECTING AN APPROPRIATE AIR COMPRESSOR
If you’re looking for a portable air compressor but aren’t certain how to choose the best product for your needs, consider first and foremost what you’ll be using it for. How much air will your tools require? What level of continuous pressure is needed to operate them? What kind of environment will you be working in, and what kind of resources will you have? The answers to these questions can help inform the tank capacity, pressure rating, horsepower and fuel type you’ll want to seek in a portable compressor.
