Power$ync Variable Capacity Control
Along with pressure, compressor capacity is one of the two important specifications to consider when purchasing an air compressor. Compressor capacity can be defined as the amount of air the unit is able to pump out. An easy way to differentiate between compressor capacity and pressure is that the former indicates “how much” while the latter measures “how strong.”
While a small and large compressor can have the same pressure capabilities, the larger model has a greater capacity to produce more compressed air. Capacity is expressed in terms of cubic feet per minute (CFM). A simple way to determine the right compressor capacity for your needs is to add up the capacity requirements for all the tools and equipment you use simultaneously.
