Air Compressor for Small Poultry Processing Facility – decision made.


  • Single Phase
  • Able to run Air Tools ie Vent cutter (Air: 6.2 bar, max. 8 bar) and snips.
  • Able to pump up tyres and blow dust out of things.
  • Quiet as possible
  • Meets current safety standards.

First option:



  • Quiet – no need for employee ear/noise protection.
  • Won’t Rust
  • Backup Motor, ability to simply switch from one motor to the other if something goes wrong.
  • Due to expense, will need to be secured to building.

Will look out for second hand unit or one on special.

Very Cheap alternative:


Might be worth it for the first year until I can afford the additional quality. However I have found that unless the equipment is not made in China or India, they fail very quick.
