Huge Compressor

Unread postAuthor: CannonCreator » Thu Sep 13, 2007 10:16 pm

Well like you guys have heard my best friends dad owns a BIG TIME pool bulding business, and he builds for all the big time sprots All-Stars and actors, and celebrities. So he has many tractors, dump trucks, trucks. But I helped them mount this 3/4 Ton diesal air compressor to the back of there compressor trcuk :D . He brings it by his house every now and then to wash it down. The compressor takes up like 2/4 of the bed of the truck. I havent asked what the psi is, but when he is running the compressor its louder then... well lots of things. I dont reameber the size of the diesal engine in it, but next time he brings i by, I willget the PSI, engine size, and that stuff.

O ya and the point of this post was, how awsome would it be if I used that compressor for a steel pneumatic, golf ball cannon, or some other kind of steel cannon with a big Co2 tank chamber?
I would probably be able to fill it to the rating of the steel or co2 tank (whichever is lower rated).

i wish i had a compressor like that. that would make life sooo much easier. i dont have any sort of compressor, just a bike pump, which is annoying cause one of my pneumatics takes about one pump per two psi. thats a lot of pumps. that guy should mount a giant air cannon on the back of the truck. how awesome would that be for the guy to show up to build a pool with a cannon on the truck and ceremonially shoot a spud (or even a pumpkin, with that capacity) up, up and away.

damn, your pump must be weak. My husky pump is like 8-9 psi per pump.

145 psi is the most I've ever seen a scroll compressor run.
usually more like 110.
they are made for higher volume tools

its not a weak pump, just a large chamber. on my smallest gun, a little coaxial pistol, one pump gets you to 70 psi.

and yeah singularity that'd be good, but i dont ever use it, so i guess there isn't much point, maybe i'll take it home if i go to your house monday... just like i was going to the last five times.
