If you drive a large truck, with huge tires, you may find that the VIAIR 90P Portable Compressor s lacking a bit when the time comes to fill up your tires with air. This particular, portable compressor is designed more to be used with standard size car tires. It can easily inflate a flat 31 inch tire in just a few minutes. Once you hook up the VIAIR 90P Portable Compressor to your car battery, the compressor goes right to work, delivering air flow at up to 120 psi. That kind of air pressure doesn’t instantly inflate car tires, but it will get the job done in a few minutes, which is a heck of a lot quicker than dealing with a potentially dangerous tire change on the side of the road.
Reciprocating air compressors use pistons that are driven by a crankshaft. These types of compressors come in all sizes, from small and portable to large and industrial compressors. Some are powered by electricity, and others with an internal combustion engine.
An important factor is also the factor of oil. The oil is used for lubrication of moving parts of the compressor, but it also has some side effects. For example, traces of oil can be found in the tubes that deliver air to your airbrush tool, so it can be mixed with paint. This problem is more pronounced if the compressor is older. One possible solution is to purchase an oil free air compressor.
