Did you know?

In standard environment conditions when your air compressor reaches 14 PSI you have the reached the volume of air in the receiver!. So on this particular model (PO13) at 14 PSI you have 30L of compressed air in the tank. At 28 PSI you now have 60L of compressed air in the tank. So if the cut out pressure is 112 PSI, you now have 240L of stored compressed air! Who said small tanks don't hold enough air?
As mentioned this can be affected by the temperature and other factors.
Smaller tanks also equates to quicker air recovery times of lost pressure along with lower operating temperature of pump.


Please note: air compressors i.e piston type, are not designed to run continuously they must cut in and out. Direct drive models should only have up to a 40-50% duty cycle. Belt Drive hobby models are up to 60-70% and full industrial belt drive models are up to 75-85%. If the compressor runs over these duty cycles it could cause failure. Important - first check voltage on each building site as low voltage will cause the motor to fail on all compressors. It must have be better than 230 volt at peak times. Extension leads will cause voltage drop, it's better to use extra air hose.

Performance of all our belt driven air compressors are to AS4637.
