Stay safe on the road with vehicle air compressors and inflators
Keep your tyre pressures correct and drive safely with vehicle air compressors and inflators. Vehicle air compressors and inflators are used to adjust your vehicle's tyre pressure, making sure your tyres are not over or underinflated. Air compressors come in a variety of sizes, ranging from handheld to large tanks like those you find at the garage.
Air compressors, inflators and gear
An underinflated tyre will wear significantly more quickly than if correctly filled. Underinflated tyres will also overheat and can reduce your levels of fuel consumption by around 5%. Overinflated tyres will decrease the comfort of your ride, and are more likely to get damaged by uneven road surfaces and potholes.
Vehicle air compressors and inflators allow you to measure the pressure of your tyres with ease and from the comfort of your own home. You can find the full spectrum of air compressors, whether you are looking for a small device with which to maintain your own vehicle, or else run a garage and change dozens of tyres a day.
Air compressors and inflators come with a variety of charging options, including battery powered air compressors and mains connected devices. If you want to check your tyre pressures but do not wish to purchase an entire air compressor, you may wish to purchase a handheld gauge that will inform you of your tyre pressure, without inflating or deflating the tyres.
Sandblasting and paint spraying
Air Compressors may also be used for the purpose of sandblasting or painting your vehicle. Sandblasting is a method of removing an outer layer of paint and smoothing a surface prior to repainting. Air compressed paint guns are also the best way to achieve a smooth professional finish. Many air compressors can be used for a variety of purposes with the purchasing of additional kit and attachments.
