Buying an air compressor for domestic or industrial use is always a very big decision to make. Choosing a quality compressor that 's best suited to your needs will help to save you a lot of money as well as making your work a lot more effective and less time-consuming.

Whilst there are many types of compressors, from diesel & petrol to single & 3 phase, silent, & oilless, it can be a very difficult buying process. Having some basic knowledge of what applications or air tools are involved will allow you to choose the right compressor with sufficient air delivery.



Bigger tank size will allow you to operate multiple air tools at once and for a longer period before the pressure drops to refill more air. However, with the larger tanks, the compressors can be quite heavy and bulking making it hard to maneuver. A smaller tank will not let you operate as long as it stores less air but will offer more movability or portability as it can be equipped with rubber wheels which makes it a lot easier to move around.


A petrol compressor would be best to be used outdoor or when it is being moved from various worksites where they lack electrical power. However, it is advised to be unsafe to operate a petrol compressor in an enclosed area for safety reasons.

An electric motor compressor is usually what the majority of industries opt for due to it being slightly cheaper and require less maintenance. Electric Compressors come in single phase or 3-phase, it is important to check out what sort of power supply you have access to.


Free air delivery measures the volume of air that is produced by a compressor, it is often measured in CFM. If you have many air tools and you plan to operate multiple tools at once, you will need to add up the CFM requirements from the air tools and make sure your compressor free air delivery equal or surpasses it. Any FAD ratings from compressors sold by Revolution Industrials are accurate according to Australia Standard.


Different compressors will have a different level of PSI. PSI determines how powerful is the air being produced. If an air tool has a requirement of 150PSI, your compressor has to pressurise at least 150 PSI for it to work. However, it is important to make sure your air tools are not operated with an excessively high PSI as it can damage your air tools. This problem can be fixed with a pressure regulator.


Duty Cycle is the ratio between when your compressor is operated compare to when it is in the resting/cooling phase. To ensure a compressor is well looked after and prolong its life, it would be best to not let operate more than 60% of the time. If you find your compressor runs out of air too fast and it is being overworked to refill the air then you should look into a bigger tank compressor.

Whether you need to make simple adjustments to your tyre pressures to suit the terrain you 're driving on, or completely re-inflate your tyres, you will want to equip your vehicle with the tools you need to fix a flat tyre or even just wanting to pump up an air mattress or the kids inflatable pool toys, a portable air compressor that runs off your vehicle 's 12v battery is just what you need to get the job done and will give you free air anywhere you are.
