Val-Air compressors by Silentaire
If you have been given a choice between heavy-duty and silent compressors, what would you choose? We think that this question has lost much of its relevance with Silentaire compressors from the Val-Air line. These are very quiet and completely automatic, all while each Val-Air compressor comes equipped with one or more powerful 1/2 HP "AL" motors. For optimum performance, such "AL" motors feature aluminum heads and cooling fins. As for the automatic operation, this means that such compressors require less control over the air pressure within the tank. Due to a pressure switch, the motor automatically stops and starts as the pressure rises and drops to its min and max values. So, with a Val-Air compressor, you won't have a need to check the pressure all the time. Just leave it upon the compressor and enjoy working with your airbrush.
To complete the picture, we would also like to mention that every Val-Air compressor has
- a tank,
- tank pressure gauge,
- pressure regulator with the built-in moisture trap,
- in-line pressure gauge,
- safety valve,
- air intake filter, and
- a handle to make carrying and transport of the compressor easier.
