So air compressor manufacturer will find ways to create breakthroughs to be able to meet industries changing needs. But the most important thing you need to look into is safety.
Years later, I built a smaller woodworking shop in my home which only required one air sander running at a time. For that shop, I purchased an air compressor half the size and isolated it in a soundproof room in one section of the shop. I ran galvanized pipe under the shop floor to three regulators at three different connection locations. The machine I purchased for that shop as a 5 HP Ingersoll Rand model with an 80 gallon tank. At the 80 PSI required by my Dynabrade sander, the compressor would produce enough air from morning to night. I must say that that compressor was very well built. All I had to do was keep an eye on the oil level in the sight glass. At night, I would turn off the master air valve on the side of the air compressor, leaving the electricity on, to silence the compressor until the next work day.
And, often times, these compressors end up blowing more car fuses than they do blowing up flat tires. The VIAIR 90P Portable Compressor, however, avoids these kinds of mishaps by drawing power directly from your car’s battery. It uses heavy duty alligator clips, like those on your jumper cables, to hook up easily to the battery for power to this compressor, no matter where you are.
