air compressor northern tool

An air compressor is a power conversion tool, transforming energy generated by an electric motor, diesel engine, or gas power source, into high-pressured air. The result is collected and stored in a tank, providing the energy needed to operate machinery and other devices.

From powering an impact wrench to inflating tires, air compression is a resourceful drive for many tools. These include Sanders, drills, HVAC systems and paint sprayers-all of which benefit from air compressors.

The air compressor tank capacity holds the key to abundant air supply, enabling the user to operate air-powered tools for an extended period of time without having to switch on the appliance again. A larger tank size ensures a greater resource for longer operations.

When selecting an air compressor, the CFM rating is essential. This measurement tells you the capacity of the compressor to provide a reliable stream of air. For tools that involve a steady supply of air, such as sanders and spray guns, having a higher CFM rating is critical.

The air compressor’s PSI (pounds per square inch) should also figure into your selection process. This is basically a measure of the drive that the machine can offer, where a higher PSI indicates more oomph, thus being especially beneficial for rigs that need substantial pep, such as impact wrenches.

For those looking for machines to help them work smarter with air, there are two options – portable or stationary air compressors. Portable ones are ideal for those needing to move frequently between job sites as they are lightweight and can be transported easily. However, more stationary air compressors require a permanent home as they are bigger and must be permanently secured to the floor. These are often used by businesses that rely on air-powered tools each day.

If you’re on the hunt for a dependable air compressor, reading up on reviews is a great way to gauge the experiences of other users. It’s also wise to survey various models and compare their respective features, so you can decide which one best suits your requirements.
