Direct Drive Air Compressors

Direct Drive Air Compressors

Direct drive air compressors are primarily aimed at the home user or light trade, perfect for small jobs such as tyre inflating, cleaning & for lighter use with some air tools. Different to belt drive compressors, the pump and motor is directly connected through a drive shaft. Direct drive air compressors are low maintenance, especially the oil free air compressors which are also good for moving around. We offer a wide range, typically up to 3.0Hp on a direct drive from popular brands such as SIP and Sealey.

Direct Drive Air Compressors

Things to think about...

Tank Size: The bigger the tank the more air you can store and the less your motor and pump will have to work. Make sure whatever you buy will fit in the place you want to keep it.

Motor Power: The bigger the motor, the quicker your compressor can build up air and the higher the level that air flow can be kept constant at.

Voltage & Ampage: Make sure if you are buying a large Industrial Air Compressor that you buy the correct voltage, 400v is a three phase, electricity supply, so make sure you have this installed or are prepared to get it installed before buying. Some 230v compressors will run from a higher ampage (e.g. 16A, 18A or 32A) due to their motor size, this is not a big job to install, but will require an electrician if you do not already have it. 230v 13A can use a standard household 3 pin plug.

Piston Displacement & Free Air Delivery (F.A.D): These are both measured in CFM, but piston displacement is the volume of air produced at the pump and the free air is the actual volume of air that the compressor will produce (F.A.D is usually around 25-30% lower than the piston displacement).
