Workshop Compressor FAQ's

What is a Workshop Compressor?

When on-site or in a workshop, air compressors are used for their energy-generating and portability capabilities. When choosing an air compressor for a site or workshop, there are two popular and basic compressor types for workshops to choose between, reciprocating & rotary screw air compressors. These compressors are well suited to various applications, including small to medium airflow trade use, in mechanical & automotive workshops, industrial and commercial environments. The tools they power are some of the most useful in any site or workshop, due mainly to having great power to weight ratios, running cooler and more affordably than their electrical counterparts. When an air tool is used, the compressed air is released and shoots out of the tank to power the tool; once this pressure tank is lowered, the pump automatically begins re-pressurising the tank. Some of the most popular jobs to use an air compressor for on a trade or worksite are drilling, tightening and loosening nuts and bolts, inflating tyres, painting, sanding, polishing and of course cleaning.

Why Choose a Workshop Compressor?

Workshops and sites are generally known for containing a range of large machines and appliances. When selecting a compressor, the primary considerations are often efficiency and durability when the main use is in a business setting. The durability of an air compressor determines how much work it will be able to offer you as well as the life span of its productivity. Features like a coating of the tank and the strength of the steel build of the compressor itself should be at the top of the check-in list and can be easily found by your distributor or through the manufacturer. The investment in a compressor will benefit a site, regardless of its size. Still, considerations should be completed in advance to compare different types, sizes, and prices to best fit a budget.

What Size Workshop Compressor Do I Need?

Choosing the suitable trade or workshop air compressor for your needs must first be met to understand the application and demand for air in that setting. The right type and size compressor can help you reduce energy costs and optimize productivity, so it’s important to know how to calculate the information you will need to guide this decision. Beginning with the compressed airflow, which is typically measured in cubic feet per minute (CFM). This flow has been described as the measurement of the compressed air to perform a process within an acceptable time frame and support multiple processes alongside. A compressor that’s too small won’t produce enough flow and pressure to complete required tasks, and too large will cost more to buy and operate and potentially lead to mechanical problems. The importance of correctly sizing the compressor is based on a calculation that we recommend speaking with a professional about to check before making a purchase. The Blue Diamond team can provide the information you will need regarding your specific set of circumstances to measure your actual demand. Another important note to make is regarding planning for the future, and the capacity you can predict may be required in your setting. We recommend sizing a compressor for the actual demand of a trade or workshop setting instead of oversizing to compensate for this prediction. Another thing to keep in mind is that expansion of your operation might be completed without expanding air production. Air demand may fluctuate as work progresses, which is why a compressor with a Variable Speed Drive (VSD) might be an interesting consideration for your situation.
