Looking for an air compressor but not sure which is best?

Air compressors convert engine power into compressed air by forcing air into a tank. The air is then controlled by a pressure switch that automatically turns off the motor when maximum working pressure has been achieved. The compressed air is later released from the tank to generate power until the pressure in the tank drops and a switch triggers the motor, allowing the tank to fill up automatically.

Here at Kendal Tools & Machinery, we know how important it is to choose the right air compressor for your needs. That’s why we have a wide variety of SIP air compressors for sale and will be more than happy to assist you in choosing the best one.

How do air compressors work?

An air compressor is powered by an engine that turns electrical energy into kinetic energy and creates pressurised air by forcing it into a container. The pressurised air generated by air compressors can be used to power a wide range of pneumatic tools – including impact wrenches, sanders, and paint sprayers – and within heating and air conditioning systems. Whilst there are several types of compressors available to buy online at Kendal Tools, we can assure you that they are all easy to operate and come with detailed instructions. Plus, if you’re unsure about how the system works, you’re always welcome to contact our experts.

What size compressor do I need?

As a leading supplier of air compressors, we stock a variety of sizes – here at Kendal Tools – and appreciate that knowing which to choose can be easier said than done. That’s why our team is always on hand to assist, ensuring you make an informed choice. To determine the best compressor size for your needs, we need to know how it will be used. For example, if you require an air compressor to power air tools, it helps if you know the required CFM (cubic feet per metre) of each tool.

Where can I install an air compressor?

An air compressor is a flexible piece of equipment, used by various industries. Whilst you should always refer to the instruction manual supplied with the compressor, there are several factors to consider when installing one at your facility, including: • The floor needs to be level. Though not something we supply at Kendal Tools, vibration mounting pads are recommended. • The compressor needs to be installed in a well-ventilated room. • There needs to be at least a 24” clearance from the walls to allow for efficient airflow. If you have any further questions regarding the installation of air compressors, don’t hesitate to send us a message, and we’ll get back to you with more information.
