More About Air Compressors in Denver, Colorado

How To Choose an Air Compressor?

Like many other tools, selecting an air compressor is largely dependent on the size of the job. Larger jobs will require higher capacity and pressure, and lower jobs will require less capacity. In general, there’s a ratio calculation of cubic feet per minute (CFM) to pound per square inch (PSI), which essentially requires the operator to gauge the necessary CFM at the highest PSI, accounting for an additional 50% to create a margin for safety consideration. This calculation can vary depending on the tool and project needs. We recommend consulting with your local United Rentals branch specialists to ensure the safe and efficient use of tools.

What Size Air Compressor Do I Need for Air Tools?

Like choosing an air compressor for any application, determining size for air tools depends on the type and scale of tool. Air compressors power tools for varied tasks like painting, sawing, chiseling, riveting, grinding, screwing, nailing and more. Each of these tasks has recommended ratio measurements for determining the amount of CFM and PSI needed to safely operate the equipment for the task at hand, often based on the horsepower of the compressor unit. United Rentals offers support, and our team of specialists are readily available to confirm your requirements. Reach out to your local branch today.

How Does an Air Compressor Work?

Air compressors reduce the volume of air or gas, increasing the pressure and turning it into power for various pneumatic applications. Air compressors store the air in a tank or holding area under increasing pressure. Once the pressure reaches a limit, the operator connects it to a tool that releases the compressed air to power cylinders, motors, actuators, or other devices that generate power to move and operate the machine or tool parts.
