Air compressor air control units regulate a compressor’s air supply by reducing upstream air pressure to a specified constant downstream pressure. In times of high demand, air control units increase the output of compressed air, and in times of low demand, they reduce the output of air. In this way, air compressor air control units supply compressed air that is varied in pressure yet is directly proportionate to the amount of compressed air needed for the task at hand.
For optimal air pressure and efficiency, it’s important to have a control unit for your air compressor. Without an air control unit, you run the risk of operating pneumatic tools at higher than recommended pressure which can cause excess torque on your compressor and waste a lot of air. You also run the risk of operating your air tools below specified air pressure which can cause your equipment to underperform and prevent you from achieving your desired results. With this said, precise air pressure control is essential to efficiently operate your air powered equipment, making an air control unit a crucial component to any air compressor.
