Why Purchase A Bartsharp Airbrush Compressor AC04?
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 two years researching manufacturers and testing compressors to ensure that we found a range that we are proud to put our name to.
A range that offers outstanding performance, exceptional build quality and a quieter operating noise level.
How do we know that we have now got it right..?
AC04 Airbrush Compressor
1.8m Electric Cable with UK 3 Pin Plug
Dimensions: 320mm x 140mm x 330mm
The AC04 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 1/4 horsepower electric motor which easily beats the performance of the most commonly available AS186 airbrush compressor with it’s smaller 1/6th horsepower motor.
The airbrush compressor produce a massive 30 – 35 litres of air per minute via twin oil-free pistons which ensures that your paint is not contaminated with oils and greases found in other style compressors.
There are TWO built in electric cooling fans - one for each piston!
The airbrush compressor has a 3.5 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.
Knowing how to set the air pressure regulator correctly can be a little confusing if you have never done it before.
