can I run my compressor continuously for 24 hours or so.

There will be a constant release of air and a constant need for compressor to generate pressure to keep up will this harm my compressor

Rigid compressor

I would like to run 125 psi for 24 hours or more on my Rigid air compressor model number OL50145MW.
From what I can gather there does need to be a intermittence allowed in run time. any one have a comment.

Constant air flow from compressor
by: Bill

See the page on this site on duty cycle, which provides a pretty clear answer to your question.

Not knowing the model of Ridgid air compressor compounds the concern.

You also don't indicate what flow of air you need or at what pressure, all issues that will relate directly to the answer to your question.

Please read the page on duty cycle, and then post more information here as a comment, with your model number, and we may be able to provide a specific answer, Shawn.
