Compressor size needed for LPH400

Postby mtptl » Sat Jun 18, 2011 12:25 pm

I'm going to paint my car soon, and I understand that the more air supply you can get the better and I was planning on renting a compressor, but I've read that you can get away with a mid size compressor it may just have to run quiet alot and aslong as you setup water/oil traps I should be fine, if thats true I may just buy a bigger compressor (my current ones small).

The LPH 400LV requires about 10 CFM at 16 PSI - Best you rent a compressor that will product at least twice that much so it can be at rest half the time to reduce the chance of water in the air lines and contaminate the paint.
