Why Purchase An AC03 Airbrush Compressor?
You will have spent many hours and hours looking for an airbrush compressor that is right for your needs.
One that is reliable, value for money, looks good and performs to the highest standards with trouble free use.
Don't worry, we went through the same frustration spending almost six years researching manufacturers and testing compressors to ensure that we now have
our own BARTSHARP brand of airbrush compressors.
Our range of airbrush compressors has been manufactured by the same manufacturer that some of the biggest names in airbrushing rely on; our prices will not be the same as theirs!
The new BARTSHARP Airbrush compressors offer outstanding performance, superior build quality and a quieter operating noise level.
ALL of the Airbrush compressors now come fitted with and internal electric fan to help reduce overheating.
How do we know that we have now got it right...?
The AC03 airbrush compressor has two power modes:
The first is Auto Start, Auto Stop. Maximum air pressure 57PSI.
Once the pressure of the air, within the air tank, reaches a preset limit (set through the air pressure regulator), the airbrush compressor will automatically stop pumping.
The unit will automatically start pumping when it senses the air pressure, in the air tank, has dropping below a certain level.
The second switch position places the airbrush compressor in to a constant pumping mode. Maximum air pressure 86PSI.
This feature enables the user to achieve higher levels of air pressure for short durations which may be required by certain types of paint (candy / pearl / metallic / top coat lacquer) for correct atomisation.
A higher air pressure may also be required during the spraying of t-shirts, or other fabrics, to embed the medium in to the material.
It has a powerful 1/6th horsepower electric motor which easily beats the performance of the most commonly available AS186 airbrush compressor with it's inbuilt electric cooling fan.
The airbrush compressor produces 23 – 25 litres of air per minute via a single oil-free piston which ensures that your paint is not contaminated with oils and greases found in other style compressors.
The airbrush compressor has a 3 litre air tank proving an air supply with zero pulse.
It is also fitted with an air pressure regulator / water trap which is fully adjustable and has a display dial showing the pressure of the air being delivered to the airbrush.
Water vapour and heat are by products of placing air through a mechanical process such as compression. The pressure regulator also acts as a water trap to prevent your paint becoming contaminated.
The air pressure regulator has a 1/8BSP male air outlet.
1/8BSP is approximately 9.35mm in diameter. BSP denotes the type and pitch of thread and stands for British Standard Pipe.
1/8BSP is the most common size and type of thread used with airbrushes and associated products, including; air hoses, quick disconnect couplers and air hose manifolds.
The AC03 Airbrush Compressor is available on it's own or as a single or double airbrush kit.
