No intake filter on fiac 3000/3001 compressor
(Bogota - Colombia)
Fiac air compressor
Hello bill, Im Alejandro from Colombia, your website has cleared many questions i had about air compressors, thank you so much señor Bill
and this time id like to ask you a question
i bought a little oilless air compressor (fiac 3000/3001), it is a 1 hp and 6 liters air compressor and i noticed this air compressor doesnt have any intake filter, i checked the manual and it doesnt say anything about that, i checked other several oilless air compressors from different brands with 1 hp and almost 6 liters or 3 gallons and they dont have an intake filter too, it is like those little air compressors for car tyres that doesnt have filters too, so thinking about it, is it because these little air compressors are for home use where you will not find a dusty or dirty environment?, or their intake suction power is not enough to catch so many debris? also with such a low horsepower maybe an intake filter could lower and affect its little performance because of restriction of air incoming?
thank you so much for your answer señor Bill...
