We are looking to install a quiet indoor compressor into a salon / barber shop and the air will be piped out to each station. What style / brand do you recommend? Any design considerations?

Barber Shop air pressure

Good question, Adolfo.

The answer, as is written on pages on this site, is to use the minimum pressure level in PSI that will do the job.

Different clean off or blow off locations will likely require different pressures to do the job properly.

Use the regulator on the compressor to lower the pressure to the blow gun to the lowest effective pressure.

Your comment about pressure safety are right on! Care must always be taken using compressed air in all applications, including cleaning off benches etc.

I think air compressor pressure usually 100 or 125 psi is too high, even dangerous for the ear drums, eyes etc.
