Compressor for texture ceilings

I need high output air to consistently blow on texture. A small mobile compressor works best because it will be easier to haul from room to room.

Texture spraying
by: Bill

Further to Doug's comment, the initial pieces of information needed is the air demand and pressure of the texture gun.

With that info, and knowing that you can get around 3-4 CFM of air at 90 PSI (a little more flow if the pressure is set lower) that will point to the compressor with the right size pump and motor for the job.

Typically 220 Volt motors are more efficient - use less power for equal output - than 120 V motors, though typically also 220 V isn't the norm in North America for hand-portable compressors.

Splatter gun?
by: Doug in

Number one - you need to check the specs on that to see how much air (CFM or SCFM) the texture spray gun needs.

Then, depending, you can choose a smaller compressor with built-in "breaks" (you have to wait for it to catch up and cut off before continuing spraying), or find a compressor that has an output greater than the demand of the spray gun, and can run with no breaks while you are spraying.

Will you be powering it with 110V or 220?
