Everything you need to know, before comparing different types of compressors

Companies and professionals have varying needs for compressed air. Sometimes, they require a tailored solution. This could include specific technology or different power ranges. Before evaluating different models, knowing the amount of compressed air needed by your tools and production machines is mandatory, as well as the the required air quality.

Screw models

Screw technology is ideal for industries and professionals who need a great quantity of compressed air. One of the key parameter to compare different models is the FAD (Free Air Delivery). You can choose between:

Piston models

Piston technology is suitable for discontinuous usage, which does not require a high airflow. The intaken air is a useful parameter to compare the different models. They are the ideal choice for hobbyists and professionals.

Oil-free models

Some applications require a high-quality product. The oil-free technology prevents any oil impurity and is classified as Class 0 according to ISO 8573-1:2010. They are available with scroll, piston, and water injection technologies as well as at a different power:

When choosing the right compressor, there are several key factors to consider. These include whether it will be used continuously or intermittently:

Compressed air tank

In general, compressors are integrated with a compressed air tank, which lets you stock compressed air. The tanks’ size must be big enough to avoid the engine continuously switching on. Some models are equipped with a vertical tank, which is very useful in restricted spaces.

*Piston compressors’ data refers to the intake air; airflow (normally pointed as FAD) is lower

Maximum delivered air

Maximum delivered air* (l/min o m3/h) is the quantity of air that the compressor can deliver in order to fuel pneumatic tools. To avoid oversizing your compressor and to keep the maximum safety margin, in general, users consider 30% of delivered airflow more than the estimated needs.

Maximum Pressure

Maximum pressure (bar) can vary depending on the tools or machines that use compressed air. For example, car washing machines require a 15 bar compressor.

Compressor power

Compressor power (HP) must be efficient to meet the air demand and the needed pressure.
