Val-Air series of Silentaire compressors
The Val-Air line that includes the Val-Air 50-T-Aire is popular among airbrush customers due to the noiseless and completely automatic operation of its compressors. With a pressure switch controlling the air pressure within the tank, you can be sure the compressor won't overheat. As the pressure reaches the maximum level, the switch automatically turns the motor off. And after that, when the pressure falls below its down limit, the switch will automatically start the motor again.
Besides, all Val-Air units feature
- one or more heavy-duty 1/2 HP "AL" motors that come with aluminum heads and cooling fins,
- internally painted rust-proof tank,
- pressure regulator with the built-in moisture trap,
- in-line pressure gauge,
- tank pressure gauge,
- safety valve,
- in-line coalescing filter that removes oil moist, and
- a carrying handle or wheels for balanced carrying and transport.
Why choose Val-Air 50-T-Aire
This air compressor model stands out from other Val-Air compressors in terms of size and compactness. Its telescoping handle provides better portability when modified into an added leverage and allows for compact storage and transportation when collapsed.
Apart from that, the Val-Air 50-T-Aire features a cast iron motor built for durability and an efficient cooling fan on the side to dissipate heat more efficiently. On top of that, the compressor comes with an improved air intake filter and has a high-quality dual air filtration system on the output. All that makes airbrushing even more comfortable and enjoyable.
