Description

These are a well built, industrial grade, air compressor, available with a 12v or 24v motor. The heavy-duty design, high discharge pressure and 100% duty cycle makes them perfect for a range of high demand applications. These compressors are exceptional quality and are perfect for permanent mounting in tight spaces on vehicles, 4wd's and trucks.

Portable Air Compressor 12v / 24v

These compressors are extremely well built and capable of running at pressures up to 200 PSI. Whilst the average person doesn't need to run at such high pressures, it's nice to know the compressor you have is built with enough quality it can achieve it. At 100 PSI discharge pressure, these units have a 100% duty cycle meaning you can run them continuously without fear of overheating and damage. The over-sized quality motor delivers impressive performance with low amperage draw meaning your battery won't go flat. These are an oil-free compressor so can be mounted and run in any orientation.

This compressor is perfect for 4wding enthusiasts who need to air up and down their tyres for different terrains. When driving on the beach tyre pressures should be reduced to around 18 PSI however at this pressure it is not safe or recommended to drive on a sealed road. Having a low voltage DC air compressor as part of your recovery equipment allows for fast and efficient tyre inflation when you need it. These compressors can also be used to inflate air mattresses and other pool toys or inflatable boats. Having the ability to achieve pressures of 200 PSI also makes them perfect for air suspension and air horn systems. 

These units can be mounted in any orientation which makes them perfect for automotive applications where space and mounting options can be a challenge. 

Onboard air systems are where users permanently mount the air compressor to their truck or 4x4 either under the bonnet or often inside the vehicle behind a wing or quarter panel. The air compressor is wired to the battery via an easily accessible switch. The air side of the compressor is often plumbed to an air receiver tank before piping to easy to access air connection locations. The air tank provides storage for the compressed air which makes inflating items such as your tyres faster. Having an air tank full of compressed air also means some air tools such as impact guns can be operated for roadside emergency repairs.

A great feature of these compressors is that you can remote mount the air inlet and filter via the included accessories. This is great for under bonnet installations and ensuring you're not going to draw water into your compressor when you perform deep river crossings. These are a great compressor for people running air lockers in their 4wds and are looking for a reliable air supply.
