It's a simple truth that any airbrush job is much easier to do in silence than under accompaniment of noisy air compressor humming. And you're absolutely right that you don't want to put up with this. Because Silentaire Technologies offers a wide range of quiet and, no less importantly, powerful airbrush compressors like this Silentaire Sil-Air 50-24 Compressor. Due to the long history and modern production methods the company has become the largest manufacturer of silent running compressors and a leader in the industry worldwide. Besides, the company is constantly working on the improvement of their products to make them even more efficient and reliable. Among Silentaire compressors, you can surely find the perfect fit for your application. For this reason, the company carries a large selection of different compressor models that are designed to meet all various specific requirements of customers.
Sil-Air line of quiet Silentaire compressors
In addition to the above mentioned benefits of Silentaire compressors, the Sil-Air series is also credited with the virtually noiseless and completely automatic operation. So, the noise level of even the largest Sil-Air Compressors doesn't exceed 44 Decibels, which is in fact very quiet. This significantly facilitates the work conditions and allows you to concentrate better on your project. As for the automatic functioning of such units, it is an excellent feature for preventing overheat of the device. With the growing pressure within the air tank, the compressor gets warm and then the automatic switch stops the motor. Further, when the pressure level drops to the minimum level and the compressor cools down, the switch automatically starts the motor again.
Beyond that, all Sil-Air compressors are equipped with
- a tank,
- tank pressure gauge,
- pressure regulator with moisture trap,
- built-in line pressure gauge,
- safety valve protecting the compressor from overheat
- air intake filter that keeps out dust, water, and other airborne contaminants,
- carrying handle or built-in wheels providing easy portability.
