Entry #001 - Silent Aire air brush compressors - leak oil?

silent aire air compressor Question: "ive herd silent aire compressors sometimes leek oil can i do anything to prevent this..2 traps maybe can you hook up two airbrushes on their supersilent 20-A?"

Response: I don't personally know the compressor myself, but if it's oil lubed, and even sometimes when a compressor is not, they allow lube oil to migrate into the airstream, and down the lines to your application. If your compressor is putting oil into your airbrush air supply, then you need to use, at the very least, a coalescent filter to take out the free oil. See that link from the site map page under Filters.

As to what you can connect to your compressor, you can connect any number of devices, yet if you add too many, some may not work as there will not be enough air. The issue is, then, will you have enough air? In order to figure that out, you will need to compare the air supply ratings on your compressor for PSI and flow demands of your airbrush. Do the math. If there is enough air, then yes, you can run two. If not, run one at a time, assuming this compressor will deliver enough air for the one.
