Compressed air nailer dilemma ~ Dewalt D55168 compressor and flow

by Rob

OK,


I have a Dewalt D55168 compressor
It has an SCFM rating @ 90 PSI of 5.4

The nailers that I am looking at call for
8 - 10, or 8- 12 CFM @ 60 PSI.

Is there a tool for guaging the differences in PSI to CFM ?

I understand from the other posts that for the basic (read that as non-physics geek) user, CFM and SCFM can basically be considered the same, I just need to figure out if the difference in PSI listed will account for the change in S/CFM rating.

Ideally, I'd like to be able to calculate S/CFM
at the following levels (due to tool requirements that I have seen thus far:
@ 30 PSI
@ 45 PSI
@ 60 PSI
@ 90 PSI
@ 120 PSI

Is there an easy conversion table?
Like multiply the CFM by X for Y differences in PSI levels....

Thanks in advance.
Also, though I am not sure this will be ok or not I am including my email address here, in case you come up with something... since I just found this site tonight.

Thanks,

Rob

Hey Chris, not a lot to work with here.

Do this. Turn it off, open the tank drain to let all the pressure out to zero, close the tank drain, and turn it on. Does this make a difference?

Let me know by posting a comment on this thread, and then, based on your response, we'll look at Plan 'B' if needed.

Cheers,

Bill

Bill I have the same problem and yes it does make a difference. It starts and runs at normal speed. What do I do to repair it?
