Quiet running, efficiency and quality - these features are typical for Silentaire air compressors. Besides, Silentaire products are trouble free and durable, and you can choose any device, depending on your preferences. Also, you can purchase oil-lubricated or oil-free Silentaire compressors as the company offers both types. Silentaire product lines cover Sil-Air, Val Air, Super Silent, Spectrum 2000, and Scorpion Compressors. Further, we will discuss the Silentaire Scorpion I-W model from the Scorpion line.
Scorpion Compressor Line
Both single and dual piston compressors are included in this line. Distinctive features of Scorpion compressors are portability, compactness, and, what’s more, they do not require oil and virtually trouble-free. More than that, the quiet operation makes the compressor a beloved device for artists preferring to work in silence. The noise level is only a bit louder than a whisper sound. Each Scorpion compressor comes with:
- a hose for connection with an airbrush;
- an on/off switch;
- an auto shutoff switch.
These parts serve to prevent condensation and reduce operating time and motor wear. However, you should remember that the long life of the device depends on the proper use. Thus, you have to follow the instructions and treat the item carefully.
Scorpion I-W Air Compressor Characteristics
The Silentaire Scorpion I-W combines all the features that are common to Scorpion Compressors. The I-W model is super silent, portable and powerful. Besides, when you don’t use the airbrush, the auto shutoff function turns the compressor off and activates again after resuming the airbrush. Then, the oil-free application of the compressor produces the same amount of airflow and pressure output as oil-lubricated devices do. However, oilless air compressors are much lighter than their oil analogs. And they are usually cheaper than oil-lubricated models. What is also great about Scorpion I-W item is that it is almost maintenance-free. It means the compressor is made of materials that are so strong to provide durable lifetime so the machine almost doesn’t require periodic maintenance.
