From what I can find, it's full industrial.

The only limit is on the motor, which is good to 90 degrees Centigrade or 194F.

So, I wouldn't worry too much unless it starts tripping out the motor overload.

The pump should be fine as long as it's got oil.

As you've no doubt found as well, there's precious little detail about what I believe is their 3 HP x 150 litre tank compressor.

My perception is that these are semi-industrial compressors, with a duty cycle greater than the basic DIY compressor, but I have no idea what the actual specifications are.

If this were my compressor, I'd be comfortable running it for 20-25 minutes and then letting it cool for the same amount of time.

If that isn't sufficient for the task at hand, perhaps the tool being used requires a compressor with greater HP and greater capacity?
