Cast iron tank? steel is cheep and wont last...

Asked by JT February 3, 2021
4
Answers

There is no such thing as a cast iron compressor tank, thank goodness. Cast iron is brittle and can not handle high pressure over a large area... it would shatter like a grenade body. It's great for engine blocks, pump and valve bodies, and other things that have low volume displacement inside... but a pressure vessel? Never. Steel is ductile, strong, and easily weldable to build high pressure pipes and vessels. As for durability, cast iron is just as likely to rust as steel... even more so under certain circumstances. The only way to prevent that is to epoxy coat the inside of the tank... which no manufacturer does, although you can do it yourself if you feel like it. You'll still have to drain the tank due to water condensation buildup though. I'm honestly wondering where you have ever seen or even heard of any air compressor with a cast iron air tank.

How is this for hvlp paint spraying?

Asked by yallywoodpainter October 23, 2020
1
Answer

For this DEWALT 25 gal. air compressor, we only recommend intermittent use for HVLP painting applications to allow the compressor to catch up. Also, you will need to consult the air delivery (CFM) requirements for the HVLP tools that you want to use. This specific air compressor delivers 7.7 CFM at 40 PSI and 6.2 CFM at 90 PSI.

Will this winterize an 8 zone sprinkler system!

Asked by JDannu82 October 7, 2020
1
Answer

The amount of SCFM required to blow out a sprinkler system depends on the diameter of pipe used in the system. Please research the sprinkler system to determine the amount of air flow required. The DEWALT 25 gallon 200 PSI air compressor creates 7.7 SCFM at 40 PSI and 6.2 SCFM at 90 PSI.

Dewalt makes high quality products and this electric air compressor is no exception. It is strong and sturdy yet is easy to move around because of the heavy duty rubber tires.It has a large tank capacity of twenty five gallons. It comes full of oil, an added bonus.The compressor has a multitude of uses. So far I have used it to put air in the tires of two vehicles and it was easy to use.As air compressors go it is quieter than others that I have used. It has a two year warranty.I am very happy with it.

DEWALT 25 Gal. 200 PSI Portable Vertical Electric Air Compressor – This compressor is a huge upgrade over my 20-year-old 20-gallon, 125 PSI compressor. Before connecting it to my shop’s compressed air piping, I did go through the manual and the break-in procedure. I like its larger size and with higher pressure I now have plenty of air to run air-sanders, grinders and impact guns without waiting for the compressor to keep up. Not that my old compressor is excessively loud, but the Dewalt compressor is noticeably quieter and runs smoother. Being an upright compressor is a plus, its footprint in my shop is about half that of the old horizontal unit. Although I really like this compressor, a couple of suggested improvements: add 2 or 3 more quick-connects for connecting more hoses/tools and an automatic condensate drain would make this perfect.

This compressor is the ultimate movable compressor. It has kept up with every challenge I’ve given it. It’s mounted on rubber inflatable tires and the front floor rests are rubber pucks that help eliminate vibration and noise. The regulator is mounted on the top front of the unit for easy adjustment. There is one hookup for an air hose. This unit is very quiet and a must have. It easily handles air tools and this awesome compressor will last for years. It’s very well built and very sturdy and very easily moved. Don’t hesitate to get this compressor.

The Dewalt 25 Gal. 200 PSI Compressor is a perfect fit for my shop. I have always struggled with my smaller units not keeping up with my spray gun or air tools. I understand that the 200 psi unit provides 76% more air compared to the 30 gallon 155 psi units on the market. In my testing this compressor shows to have plenty of reserve for all of my uses. The spec’s on this compressor show the air output to be 6.2 cubic feet per minute at 90 psi (7.7 cfm at 40psi). It has a 2 hp motor wired for 120 volts requiring 15 amps. An adjustable regulator delivers the air through a quick connector. The rubber tires make it portable, as it weighs 155 pounds. Mine came shipped to my house and was packed well. The compressor comes full of oil and ready to run. Before using a 30 minute no-load break-in is required, which is done by leaving the drain valve open. Once the oil is rechecked and a leak check is completed it is ready for use. I am extremely surprised and satisfied at how quiet the unit runs (73dBA). This compressor is everything I could expect and I would highly recommend it. I would definitely order this compressor again, as it is well made and of good quality!

High horsepower, high PSI, dual piston, 220V capable motor, and very quiet. Checks off all the boxes, and for the price, I felt like it was a great deal. The build quality seems outstanding, and I feel like I can expect a very long time of trouble free performance in the future.

Beat air compressor I have ever owned. A lot quieter while running and I have not run out of air for what I do. It was a little over kill but worth it. It came in perfect condition but was tiny bit low on oil. I did the break in process for 30 minutes and I am happy with my purchase. I have had harbor freight compressors and other name brand but I think the numbers listed for power and cfm felt more accurate as my other compressors have never worked like this. My daughter said wow dad this didn’t hurt my ears.
