Can I add a tank to a compressor that dose not come with one

by Gavin

I'm buy a tc-20 compressor that is new for a cheap price and it dose not come with an air storage tank. I will be using it to paint models and was wondering if it is worth adding a tank to cut down on noise as it would then be an intermittent noise not a constant background noise. First is this advisable or even possible second what would I need to do this.

Thank you

Of course you can, Gavin.

However, you need to understand about the compressor duty cycle so you don't overheat it. See the duty cycle page on this site for more info on that.

As to how to do that, see that page under tanks on the sitemap page.

Cheers,

Bill
