Can I use my shop compressor instead of air cylinders?
- Issue Time
Air compressors can be used to supply high density plasma systems as long as a few requirements are met. The most important is that the air is clean and dry to prevent reduced cut quality, consumable damage, or torch failure. It is recommended that the air is filtered to ISO 8573.1 Class 1.4.1 (particulates, moisture and oil). Secondly, the compressor must be able to maintain the minimum input pressure needed to operator the plasma system. Check the specifications section of your operator’s manual for the requirements of your plasma system before connecting to an air compressor.
