Choosing the Right Air Compressor for You!

Choosing the correct air compressor for you and your application is very important to California Air Tools.

Before choosing an air compressor, determine what air tools you are planning on using.

This is very Important!

We want to ensure that the air compressor you choose be will produce enough air (CFM) to operate your air tools or application properly.

 

Every air tool has an air consumption requirement.

This is stated for example as 2.20 CFM @ 90 PSI for the air tool to work properly.

A. CFM - (cubic feet per minute) is what air volume runs your tool.

B. PSI -  (pounds per square inch) is the pressure of the flow of air.

.

This will help you determine the air delivery (CFM) you need from your air compressor.

For example the California Air Tools 5510SE air compressor will produce 2.20 CFM @ 90 PSI.

Choose the size air tank you want.

The size of the air tank depends on space, weight and air storage.The larger the tank the more air storage you have.Having larger air storage will allow you to use more air before the air compressor motor turns on.

 

Choose the material the air tank is made of.

A. Steel tanks are strong but can rust inside and out and are heavier.

B. Aluminum tanks do not rust,are lighter weight although can dent easier.



Please review all these factors and if you still have questions please call us!

We are here to help you make the right choice.
