Learn Compressor Specifications  

The horsepower of a compressor indicates the power output of the compressor motor. The higher the horsepower, the greater the pressure. The compressor can store more air in its storage tanks with higher pressure in PSI. With more air in tanks, you can operate air tools for an extended period.

The compressor delivers air volume at specific levels of PSI. Air volume is usually measured in (CFM) Cubic feet per minute and (SCFM) Standard Cubic feet per minute. The air volume decreases when there is an increase in pressure or PSI levels as the volume and pressure are indirectly proportional in the compressor system.
