How long with this air tool run with this tank?

How long will this tank run this air tool?


Duration of pneumatic power tool using tank? How long in duration could I use a Chicago air grinder, that is rated at 90psi and 3 scfm?

Please assume that we regulated the pressure with a regulator appropriately.

How long (mins or hours) could i continuously use the grinder?

Happy to post this for you. The answer will rely on the pressure in the tank when you start using the tool.

I have looked at the tank, and even though it promotes hundreds of “shots” with a paintball gun, my gut sense is that it wouldn’t provide very much use time on an air tool like the grinder you refer to.

I don’t have a method of gauging this duration myself. If you have already purchased the tank test it. If you haven’t, I wouldn’t waste my money it were me.

Anyone else have any ideas?
