Often they are louder than an oil lubed compressor, but the air delivered through one of these pumps is of a better quality. They are found for home use, and are great because they are low maintenance and start up quick in cold weather.

A regulator allows you to set the correct air pressure for the tool you will be using (say, 80 PSI) instead of tank pressure (say, 175 PSI).

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.
