Compressor doesn't run air tools well
Compressor builds pressure easily but doesn't run air tools well
Bought a used twin reciprocating compressor 7 HP 110 tank from an existing shop.
The compressor builds pressure easily to 95-100lbs. A 1/2" ID line run from the outlet of the compressor to reg/filter to swirl air drier to another swirl drier to a regulator to a 3' desiccant drier(now empty) to a 1/2" ID air line(50' long).
This 1/2" line runs directly to a blast cabinet or is knocked down to 3/8-1/4 line to run air tools.
The flow of air is weak. The air flow builds to what can run a tool about 15 seconds before the compressor will kick on. As the compressor builds pressure the tool begins to slow down as if there is no pressure or cfm in the tank.
There are no leaks in the lines. Leave the compressor full overnight w/o power and the pressure is maintained.
