Maximum tools I can run?

by Mr. Kaplan

I have a 375 CFM Air compressor running to what I believe is a 200 gallon air receiver. I was wondering how many rivet busters I can run at full capacity with this system. Each gun needs 28.9 CFM and operates at 90 Psi.

Air driven rivet guns

Assuming your compressor can deliver 375 CFM of air at 90 PSI or higher, in theory, you could run about twelve or thirteen.

If you were not running them all at the same time, then perhaps a few more.

Much will depend on whether they are all running continuously, and whether you have air lines big enough to get enough air to the farthest riveter from the compressor tank.
