This oiled air compressor is suitable for a start-up kit or for small spaces. This 50l compressor will cover you for some applications and will comfortably run the full range of ZOIC PalaeoTech air pens/scribes (and some tools from other brands). It will also run some lower air consumption air abrasive set ups for at least short periods of time (you must give it rest periods!).

The motor is the same power as our 24l Draper air compressor, the tank size just means that it can store more of the air it has compressed. It will struggle to keep up with most air abrasives and will need rest breaks. If you are looking for a 50l compressor that will run air abrasives, please look at the 2.2kW Draper 50l.

Draper have stringent quality control checks, to ensure that you are receiving the best product. You are covered by a 1-year warranty. With proper care and maintenance, this compressor will last you many years of good and consistent service!

It is worth checking the air consumption of the toolsyou are planning on using - a good rule of thumb is to look for a FAD that is 4X your maximum required consumption. This air compressor will run with the Vaniman Mobile Problast air abrasive unit but will require rest breaks.
