Although portable air tanks can’t offer the same pressure output as an air compressor, they’re ideal for less demanding tasks and cost a fraction of the price. Here’s our top 5 reasons for purchasing one…
- They’re Easy to Fill and Hold Their Pressure
To fill a portable air tank, you simply need to take it to your local petrol station and use their air compressor, or use a domestic air compressor at your home. Once filled, they will be able to hold their pressure for weeks, which is ideal for emergency usage.
- They’re Perfect For Transporting
The sturdy design of these air tanks makes them durable for everyday use, but they also remain lightweight. The largest air tank weighs just 14.6kg, which is significantly lighter than most air compressors and comfortable to carry on a day to day basis.
- They Can Power Most Domestic Requirements
As previously mentioned, air tanks don’t offer the same pressure output as an air compressor, however they’re ideal for domestic use. Producing 125psi, they’re more than capable of inflating car and bike tyres, spray painting and powering tools such as nail guns and staplers.
- They’re Low Maintenance
Using an air tank couldn’t be simpler, and you don’t need to worry about spending a lot of time maintaining it to guarantee performance. The gauge at the top of the tank enables you to monitor the pressure within the tank, and there’s a relief valve fitted on the underneath to release excess pressure and avoid moisture build-up.
