Air compressors are mostly used by construction and industrial teams to power pneumatic equipment. However, they are also used for residential tasks, like power washing, and agricultural applications. Tools like jackhammers, paving breakers, nail guns, and air drills are all examples of machinery that run on the pressurized air provided by an air compressor. Most air compressors are electric-powered, which makes them ideal for indoor tasks as they have zero emissions, unlike gas- or oil-powered air compressors.
Other typical applications for air compressors include inflating vehicle tires and filling air tanks. When using air compressors for this purpose, it’s important to understand the relationship between cubic feet per minute (CFM) and pounds per square inch (PSI). The typical rating for spray guns, for instance, is CFM at 90 PSI. Small to moderate tasks require 185 to 375 CFM range air compressors, while heavy-duty jobs demanding frequent air would call for the 750 to 1600 CFM range air compressors.
