Common air tools such as brad nailers, reversible drills, and impact wrenches require about 0.5 CFM (Cubic feet per minute/units in which air flow is measured).

It is important to know if the compressor you purchase will drive the tool you need for your project. For example, smaller air nailers run on 2 to 5 CFM at 70 to 90 PSI, while larger shears, sanders and polishers require up to 10 or more CFM and 100 to 120 PSI.

Business or commercial air compressor:
Air compressors used for business/commercial applications are often classified "industrial grade." They're packed with features that let you take on more demanding jobs with more horsepower, more CFM, more PSI and more (longer) run times.

Though some industrial-grade compressors are portable, many are stationary units with large-capacity, ASME certified air tanks (up to 120 gallons), greater HP, more CFM air volume and faster recovery time to run a wide variety of air tools for as long as you need them to do the job.

There are almost all types of tools that are powered conventionally by means of electricity are available as air tools. It includes Impact Wrenches, Ratchets, Air Cutting Tools, Air Hammers, Grinders, Sanders / Polishers / Buffers, Needle / Chisel / Piston Scalers, Screwdrivers, Air Nutrunners, Pulse Tools, DC Electric Systems, Calibration Equipment, Chipping Hammers, Rivet Busters etc. the peculiar features of air tool makes possible for more wide purposes.
