- Direct Drive
- Single Phase
- Motor Size HP: 2.5
- Displacement (CFM): 8.1

- Tank Capacity (L): 40
- Weight (Kg): 40
Calculating CFM Requirements:
Find the required air flow (CFM) of your specific air tool. This information will be in your tools user guide.
- To find the minimum required CFM of the compressor you need multiply your tool’s required CFM by 1.5 Example: if you want to run a spray gun (4.5 CFM): 4.5 CFM x 1.5 = at least a 6.75 CFM compressor
If you’re going to be running multiple tools you’ll need to add together the individual CFM of each tool.
Calculating Tank Size:
To find the minimum tank size of the compressor you need to multiple your tool’s required CFM by 6.
- For example, if you run an impact wrench (6.75 SCFM): 6.75 CFM x 6 = at least a 40 litre compressor tank
The above Tip is based on a general rule of thumb overview.
