Reviewing The Types And Usefullness Of Air Compressor Tools

Jul 25, 2008
Air compressor tools are gaining in popularity, while electric tools are losing. With the popularity of the air compressor has come a reduction in price that makes them more affordable for both businesses and homeowners. Electric tools, which have a motor built in, weigh much more than compressor tools.

Air tools can make more revolutions per minute and are capable of much more torque. Tasks done with such tools are completed faster and more efficiently than those done with electric tools.

When properly maintained, compressor tools are long-lasting, and somewhat indestructible. They have very few moving parts, so maintenance is usually limited to oiling, and they do not tend to overheat. Most of the tools attach to the air line with an accessory called a quick coupler, making changes very simple and very fast.

There are many different sizes, ranging from mini air compressors, to truck air compressors, to industrial sized compressors. There are also different types of air compressors, including the electric compressor, the gas compressor, and the rotary screw compressor.

There are many different air compressor tools. Two of the most convenient are the inflation kit and the impact wrench. You can inflate a variety of different objects with the inflation kit, including tires, balls and air mattresses.

The impact wrench, similar to the air ratchet wrench, is used mainly in automotive and construction work and is good for adding torque and tightening bolts. When you have an area that is hard to clean, the blow gun is a good option. It can clean dirt, grease and dust from hard to reach areas because it can pump air in high pressure streams.

Air nailers are an efficient way of nailing down shingles, or drywall. The air stapler is similar to the nail gun. Automotive body shops use the air sander in their work.

Sandblasters are used for removing old paint or rust. Most sandblasters have an adapter kit for use with water and detergents for power washing. The ratchet wrench is similar to the impact wrench and is another very popular tool. Both are used mainly in automotive and construction work, and are good for tightening bolts and adding torque.

Air hammers or chisels work well in masonry applications. Air drills allow for effortless drilling into any surface. The simplicity of changing the attachments and the use of one source of power for all makes owning an air compressor and air compressor tools a good investment.
