The 12V compressor is an ideal tool for inflating tires. It can inflate tires up to a maximum of three times their normal size. The compressed air from the 12V compressor can then be pumped into the tire with the aid of an air hose. The 12V compressor also has a function that allows it to be used to run other small appliances such as hair dryers and cigarette lighter lighters without heating them up. This feature makes the 12V compressor an ideal tool for working on cars or boats. For people who need to work on their cars on a regular basis, the convenience of being able to use the compressor without heating them up is an added advantage.
Compressor Units – What You Need To Know
There are two types of 12v compressors that people commonly purchase. The first type is a pressure-relief compressor which relieves back pressure created by other appliances during use. These pressure-relief compressors typically come with a compressor tank that holds a higher than normal level of pressure and can help reduce the strain on the tank pump. The second type of 12v compressor is an on-board air compressor. An on-board air compressor does not come with its own tank and needs to be filled with air from the gas tank of the vehicle.
When using an air compressor, it is important to know how much air pressure is required for the job you are attempting to complete. The manufacturer of the compressor will specify the PSI (pounds per square inch) and DAT (determined at the manufacturer) for the compressor you plan to purchase. PSI refers to the maximum allowable pressure of the compressed air; DAT refers to the pressure at which the air’s flow in the tank will be stopped; and the duty cycle, which is the length of time the compressor is able to continuously inflate tires without going over the maximum pressure level. An air compressor with a high PSI and low DAT is known as a dynamic air compressor and will generally perform more quickly than one with a lower PSI and a higher DAT. A model of compressor that has a high PSI but a short DAT is referred to as a compressing air pump and is often the model used by the construction and agricultural industries.
