inline compressor to boost psi

by Sugar
(Salt lake City Utah)

we have a shop compressor that can only be set up to 100 psi. We are getting a CNC Router that needs a constant supply of 110 psi. I am curouis if I can add a small compressor inline right before the CNC to boost the psi? Or will I need a standalone compressor to supply this load?

Boost psi

the most important piece of information you need to have to determine the answer to this question is... what is the demand of the CNC router in CFM at that 110 PSI?

I don't know the flow capacity of your existing compressor - don't know the make and model to even guess - so not only will just adding a compressor not necessarily solve the problem, you need to know how much air is required first, then we can help you decide the best way to proceed.

See the pages on this site about buying and sizing a compressor for step by step information.
