Research before you buy – choosing the right airbrush compressor

Airbrush compressorsIf you’re thinking of buying an airbrush compressor, there are a few things you should consider to avoid common errors. There are loads of airbrush compressor review sites on the Internet, but you really should read airbrush compressor buyers guides first.

There are many types of compressors, and you should choose the one that best suits your needs. Do you need a compressor for home or commercial use? If you’re looking for a compressor for domestic use, you do not need to spend a lot of money, but if you are looking for a compressor for commercial use, you must choose one that is durable and long lasting.

One of the most important things that you need to pay attention to is the noise factor. Some airbrush compressors can be loud, but the more sophisticated models do not have this problem. The question is how much it’s worth – you have to find a balance when it comes to your needs and budget.

Choose a model that has adequate power for what you plan to do; generally compressors with an airflow rating of up to 15L/Min are suited to smaller nozzle airbrushes doing detail work, while those in the 20L/Min plus range are better suited for medium and large nozzle airbrushes that are also used for coverage work.

Most experienced users recommend you buy a compressor with an air tank. These produce a constant air flow, unlike models without a tank which can create pulsation. Choose a large as possible reservoir tank to provide a constant, smooth air flow.

So, before you buy an airbrush compressor, read all about its ancillary equipment including moisture traps, gauges, reservoir tanks and pressure regulators. For free advice you can contact at
