Guide to set up pneumatic air system in your garage workshop

Garage workshop needs to have a pneumatic air system. It makes your air guns running, helps you cleaning your facility, performing painting works and pump up fishing boat.

Compressed air system starts with reliable compressor and well-thought air treatment.

Selecting spot for your compressor

To select good spot for your compressor always check following:

Do I need a powerful stationary machine or compact and easy to carry?

For stationary machine select dry place at your garage. You can consider building a simple pedestal to save space.

Have spot under the roof that compressor is secured from rain and snow. You might need to consider a place with a good ventilation. Value for money stationary compressor from Stokker is AFLATEK AIR100.

Compact model can be used ad one place and stored at another.

Compact is the best option for open field workshops or if you are planning to use compressor elsewhere. It is good addition to your van.

From the other hand Compact compressors not so powerful as stationary.

Good compact model from Stokker is Silent AFLATEK Silent 10.

Selecting complexity

Simplest and cheapest

Most simple option is compressor with single connection points for air guns.

It best for starters and amateurs that are using pneumatic tools occasionally.

Set up is super easy: place compressor, connect power, take a hose and connect air gun, spray gun or another tool.

Multiple air connection points

Together with AFLATEK SILENT 50 you should consider this sides:
