Petrol Air Compressor FAQ's

What is a Petrol Air Compressor?

A simple explanation for how a petrol air compressor works is to say that it's an air compressor that uses petrol to power its engine. These compressors are relatively affordable, with many air compressor buyers opting for petrol over their diesel counterparts due to budget constraints. However, the difference in affordability does not equate to a compromised quality, as petrol compressors can perform extremely well in heavy-duty applications. A secondary point to make here is favouring petrol compressors for their power output and fuel usage user controls, a feature significant for users trying to conserve fuel, particularly for high-power jobs. Petrol air compressors have flexibility that aligns to the seamless calibration of the pressure to the task at hand, so long as you choose a compressor that matches the machine requiring the highest PSI or CFM. Petrol air compressors are straightforward compression systems with several essential components, an air, and the petrol engine. The air end is the part of the air compressor that compresses air. The air end draws atmospheric air into the compression chamber, then forced into a compact space. While the air ends do the compressing, they need a power source to move. This is where the petrol engine comes in, converting the petrol into motion, forcing the end air to move and compress air.

Why Choose a Petrol Compressor?

We recommend when selecting a petrol air compressor to consider the following to determine if the purchase is worthwhile to your set of circumstances; 1) The air pressure or PSI is the first and a significant consideration when buying a machine with the primary function of compressing air. The PSI rating of an air compressor communicates how powerfully the air is being produced. The importance of this is vital, as the compressor you will need must be able to meet the PSI of the highest-rated tool planned for use, but at the same time, the careful calculation needs to be carried out to ensure that tools with lower PSI will not end up being damaged. This is a feature of the petrol air compressor, the flexibility to allow the user to switch between the PSI level with ease. 2) The second is the air compressors duty cycle. This title refers to the ratio between a compressor when it's working its hardest and when it’s in a resting or in cooling down phase. For a petrol compressor, we recommend seeking a larger duty cycle and a bigger tank to avoid a common problem of compressors not working as well as they should if they are operating more than 60% at the time. 3) And finally, CFM is the measure of the volume of air produced by a compressor. Information that is important to know if using a range of air tools or planning to use several tools simultaneously - the total CFM will need to be calculated. Your compressor must equal or exceed the total rate.

What Size Petrol Compressor Do I Need?

Working out the size petrol air compressor you require can be worked out using a general compressor formula. This general formula calculates the compressor time on/ (time on + time off) = Duty Cycle percentage. An example of this equation would be, a compressor uses a 100% duty cycle, resulting in the compressor providing 25 CFM and 125 PSI for 100% of the time it is in use. A second way to determine the correct size petrol air compressor would be to find the tool with the highest CFM requirement, multiply that number by 1.25 or 1.5, and then round up to the closest size.
