Four Factors for Your Industrial Air Compressor Purchase
Four Factors for Your Industrial Air Compressor Purchase
October 03, 2017

An industrial air compressor is used in many industries and by manufacturers to increase their production, including assembly and automation as well as agriculture and construction. Air compressors convert power coming from an external source like diesel engines, generators and electric motors, into stored energy, which is eventually released as highly pressurized air. Making the purchase of this type of machinery can be very tricky.


If you’re looking to buy the right kind of industrial air compressor that perfectly suits your needs and get the best value for your money, you have to wisely think about your purchase. Start by considering all the significant factors that will directly affect usage of the machine. In buying the right air compressor, you have to be specific on what you need and what you want.


Here are a few key factors to think about when purchasing an industrial air compressor:


Identify the Right Type - Air compressors come in three major types:


  • Portable - This type of industrial air compressor features a slick and compact design that makes it perfect for home use. It also saves plenty of space and is very handy for various applications.
  • Piston - These machines are slightly larger than the portable types but they offer greater amounts of air.
  • Single Stage - Considered as the industrial air compressor type that delivers massive air supply suitable for industrial operations.


Features Offered - Make sure to check for the specific features the machine has to offer, such as horsepower and cubic feet per meter (CFM). CFM measures the volumetric flow of air while the horsepower measures the force the machine can deliver. Smaller machines risk overheating in heavy usage, so make sure to get the right one suitable for the applications you need.


Power Requirements - Make sure to check the power requirements of the machinery. Most high-powered industrial air compressors have to be plugged in power outlets that can accommodate their needs to be able function efficiently. This will also protect the machine from having severe issues that may damage them.


Consider the Price - Consider the budget you are working with. There is no need to buy more expensive industrial air compressors for home applications only, as it might be a waste of time and money.


Always keep an eye out on power requirements!
