Tank Capacity

The size of the tank determines how much your pancake air compressor can do. Pancake compressors mostly come in one-two-gallon-tanks and six-gallon tanks. A compressor with a one- to two-gallon tank is smaller and better for tasks like using a nailer. The bigger, higher-capacity six-gallon pancake air compressors can do pretty much everything else involving a pneumatic tool while remaining portable and lightweight.

A large tank capacity means that you don’t need it to be refilled often. The tank can withstand two to three large jobs without running out of compressed air. You must refill small tanks often because they have a very limited storage capacity.

Maximum pressure (in PSI) is measured in pounds per square inches. High-capacity 6-gallon pancake compressors have maximum pressures in the 150-185 PSI range. The higher the maximum pressure, the longer the runtime you get to enjoy. Lower max pressures are better suited to small jobs. A pancake compressor can hold a two- or three-gallon size at 100 to125 PSI. There are some exceptions that have higher pressures, such as those with a greater capacity of 100 PSI.

The compressor should produce far more PSI than is required to provide the desired performance. You should note that every device has its own minimum PSI requirements. You will need to note the lowest PSI appliance so that you can choose an air compressor that has a higher maximum pressure than that.

An air compressor that can handle at least 140 PSI is recommended if the largest appliance in your home requires less than 120 PSI. This way, the air compressor can effortlessly power appliances whose minimum PSI requirement is less than 100, while powering the bigger machine that requires a minimum of 120 PSI.

How do you choose the best Pancake Air compressor?

What can you do to find the pancake air compressor you love? Here are some points to remember.

A majority of pancake air compressors are capable of holding 6 gallons. You can buy smaller models. It is possible to carry out small to medium-sized tasks using a 6-gallon capacity tank. The tank won’t last long and can only handle light-duty projects. But it should hold enough compressed oxygen to power 80 percent.

Also, 6 gallons is adequate to drive most pneumatic tools, so it could be a useful aid in a repair shop or small commercial shop.

Powering air tools requires high pressure. Your air compressor’s rating for pressure is in PSI (pounds per square inch). The higher the PSI, the more pressure it creates and the better the airflow.

What the compressor does to deliver the air is critical. It can make it more versatile and easier for you to do your job, which will increase productivity. The maximum PSI for pancake compressors is 150.

For the most efficient performance of your compressor, ensure it has a PSI that is greater than your tool. The best rule of thumb for air compressors is a 20% differential. A 70 PSI impact wrench will require a minimum of 90 PSI from your compressor.

This issue isn’t a problem for modern pancake compressors. Most pneumatic devices have a rating between 70-90 PSI.
