Air Compressors by Sealey & Draper, a huge range of powered compressors all available for direct despatch online with Free Delivery!
As you can see we offer a huge choice, but in choosing a suitable air compressor, there are several factors to consider. The output of most compressors is measured in CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute). This is the measure of the air the machine can deliver. Some uses, for example, shot blasting, can consume large quantities of air. You should compare the CFM rating of the air tool device(s) you want to power against the output of the compressor and allow a margin for loss. Compressors with tanks give a reservoir of air so that small bursts of a high CFM rate can be accommodated without the tank becoming depleted. You may also want to consider using additional air regulators, oilers and air tubing kits for your air installation. Running a compressor at the limit of its capacity will shorten its life,
Most compressors we sell will run from a standard 13A mains supply, using a standard 3 pin plug. However, larger compressors can require either a 16A 240V supply with a special outlet and some may require a 3 phase supply. Please check the individual machine requirements before purchasing.
Oil Free Compressors
Oil free compressors supply compressed that contains no minute oil droplets, so if you need a very 'clean' air supply, you should consider an oil free unit.
12 Volt Compressors
These are designed to work from a car battery or in car 12 volt supply and are ideal for maintaining pressure or inflating tyres, but this might take a long time with some of the smaller units.
Petrol Driven Compressors
These are designed to be used where no electrical supply is available, for example, if mounted on a vehicle.
We now have a range of quiet compressors for environments where noise is an issue.
