California Air Tools - Air Compressors
Is there anything more rewarding than getting noticed?
Well in the world of air compressors, one company is starting to get a great deal of attention… California Air Tools. Their compressors boast some hard to beat features. The oil-free design means there’s no changing or refilling oil, no oil in the air, plus the ability to use in cold temperatures and on uneven surfaces. The dual piston pump system and motor design allow for ultra-quiet performance, as low as 60 decibels, making them the quietest compressors on the market! Add to that additional features like Teflon cylinder rings, stainless steel reed valves, induction motors, and thermal overload protection ensuring industry leading longevity and it’s no wonder people are beginning to take notice.
As if being a rising star in the world of air compressors isn’t enough, California Air Tools has introduced some brilliant new product lines to help make their products available to a more diverse marketplace. The new D-series air compressor models feature an Aftercooler and Air Dryer designed to remove water from the air line, which is ideal for anyone in the dental industry, and yet are priced at a level significantly more affordable than other similar units on the market. Many air compressor models are also now available with 220 Volt, 50 Hertz conversion to reach customers in international markets. Since 220 Volt models feature such a lower Amp draw, there are also a few models available in 60 Hertz for customers in the U.S. as well. A new, larger model air compressor with Aftercooler, Air Dryer, and 220 Volt conversion has just been developed featuring a 4 horsepower motor and 17 gallon tank capable of supplying enough size and power to operate up to four dental chairs. This larger unit does not compromise any volume, as it still only operates at a 70 decibel level which is just above the sound of a normal conversation. Coming soon in May 2013 California Air Tools will be introducing Sound Proof Cabinets capable of housing their own models of air compressors as well as a variety of other brands which will reduce the volume levels to just 45 decibels…hardly audible and ideal for any work environment where noise suppression is paramount.Not sure which air compressor is right for you? California Air Tools suggests first determining what air tools you are planning on using. This is critical because you need to make sure the air compressor will produce enough air (CFM) to operate the air tool. Every air tool has an air consumption requirement. This is stated, for example, as 2.35 CFM @ 90 PSI. CFM, Cubic Feet per Minute, is what air volume runs your tool. PSI, Pounds per Square Inch, is the pressure of the flow of air. Once you select an air compressor with enough horsepower that delivers the required amount of air delivery (CFM) required for you air tool, you will then choose the size air tank you want. The size of the air tank depends on space, weight, and air storage. The larger the tank the more air storage you have, which will allow you to use more air before the air compressor motor turns on. Always go up in tank size if you can afford it as this well help prolong the life span of the air compressor. Lastly, decide on the material that the air tank is made of. Steel tanks are strong but can rust inside and out and are heavier. Aluminum tanks prevent rust and are more lightweight but can dent easier.
