What can I use a compressor for??

A compressor can also be used indoors, for example to clean the fins of the heating elements.
How big should a compressor be??
Small compressors have the advantage of being more mobile, but their power is also lower. Compressors are available in a wide range of air vessel sizes – common are six, nine, 24, 30 and 50 liters. The larger the air tank, the more air pressure can be built up. The power you need depends on the purpose for which you need the compressor. A compressor from 50 liters is suitable for professional use.
For filling tires, balls and air mattresses, a compressor with an air tank size of six to 24 liters is usually sufficient. A smaller tank volume is also suitable for model making or airbrushing. To inflate car tires, however, it should be already 24 liters.
For longer and more laborious work you need a more powerful compressor. 30 or 50 liters make sense. If you use a smaller device, you have to constantly charge new compressed air. This interrupts the work and disturbs in the long run.
The best tips for dealing with large and small compressors
Important for safe working with a compressor is the correct location. make sure you have enough space and the workspace is adequately ventilated. A compressor must never be used in a closed room without ventilation!
When the compressor produces compressed air, condensate is formed. Particles that are sucked in with the air contaminate it. Therefore, drain this condensate regularly. For example, if you use the compressor every day, you should drain the condensate once a week. Tip: open the valve very slowly to avoid splashes.
Notice: condensate contains many pollutants, including iron and cadmium. Condensate is therefore classified as special waste, which you must not dispose of in household waste. Information on proper disposal is available from your local waste disposal company.
Now and then you should clean intake filter. Finally, the filter is used to suck air into the compressor tank. In the long run, a lot of dirt accumulates in it. Replace the filter about once a year to ensure that the compressor continues to function properly.
Always work with protective gloves, because the compressor quickly becomes very hot: after just a few seconds, a compressor reaches a temperature of up to 180 degrees.
