OASIS MANUFACTURING’S ELECTRIC DC AIR COMPRESSORS
Our line of Electric DC Air Compressors includes a number of 12 V and 24 V options. We offer solutions designed for medium and heavy duty continuous use, as well as special units available for extreme operating environments.
- XD4000 CONTINUOUS-DUTY Electric DC Air Compressors
XD3000 EXTENDED-DUTY Electric DC Air Compressors
The XD3000 series of DC-powered air compressors are designed for medium-duty usage. Their low maintenance, environmentally friendly design includes motor cooling fans for extended duty cycle operation. They are available in both 12 V and 24 V options.
- XD4000 CONTINUOUS-DUTY Electric DC Air Compressors
XD4000 CONTINUOUS-DUTY Electric DC Air Compressors
The XD4000 series has been engineered for heavy duty continuous use. They combine a 160 cfm cooling fan for the compressor head, as well as a second fan for the motor to ensure uninterrupted operation, even at 200 psi. The XD4000 series is available in both 12 V and 24 V options.
- Tank-Mounted Electric DC Air Compressors
Tank-Mounted Electric DC Air Compressors
Our tank-mounted electric dc air compressors are designed for both industrial and commercial use. They are mounted on 10-gallon ASME-coded tanks, and are designed for use in work trucks and tow trucks, and mobile tire changing trucks. These units come equipped with either an XD3000 series or an XD4000 series compressor and are ideal for rugged environments and extreme use.
ELECTRIC DC AIR COMPRESSORS AT OASIS
Oasis offers the most powerful onboard electric DC air compressors available on the market, featuring a maximum pressure rating of 200 psi. Our products are designed for portability, meaning they are suitable for applications in a wide variety of environments.
Since space is a common concern for any type of vehicle, our air compressors feature compact mounting options and are small in size. As battery-powered equipment, the need for a bulky motor is eliminated, resulting in a compact, highly portable compressor that doesn’t sacrifice power or quality. In certain applications, the need for even an air tank is eliminated.
Since they feature oil-lubricated pistons, our electric DC air compressors are more efficient, durable, and less noisy than other DC powered air compressors on the market.
Whether your vehicle uses a 12-volt or 24-volt electrical system, we have an electric DC air compressor designed to meet your needs. For the majority of vehicles, a 12 V air compressor is the compatible option; however, military, railway, and heavy equipment typically require a 24 V compressor.
BENEFITS OF USING ELECTRIC DC AIR COMPRESSORS
Compared to gas-powered units, electric DC air compressors from Oasis offer numerous advantages:
Electric DC air compressors cost significantly less to run than fuel-powered compressors. The compact options we offer are much more energy efficient than larger compressors, without a sacrifice in power.
Because electric DC air compressors have no gas engine, certain maintenance tasks are eliminated, such as replacing the fuel filter, adjusting the carburetor, and more.
Our quiet compressors are free from loud engine exhaust systems, eliminating the risk of noise complaints when operated in neighborhoods or crowded business environments.
Since they are powered by clean DC electrical energy, our compressors are free from harmful gasoline exhaust emissions. They eliminate fuel spills, oil changes, and hazards of fume inhalation.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT ELECTRIC DC AIR COMPRESSOR FOR YOUR APPLICATION
Identifying the best electric DC air compressor for your needs involves several considerations. First of all, determine whether you’ll be performing light-duty tasks like filling tires or performing more heavy-duty jobs, like changing tires or fixing suspension components. For medium-duty jobs, a 12 V air compressor is suitable while more demanding tasks might require a 24 V compressor.
Next, take the following considerations into account:
Cubic Feet Per Minute (CFM) is a measure of airflow volume. It is the measurement that determines how fast a compressor will fill a tank, and how large a tool it can operate before a tank becomes necessary. A compressor with a higher CFM rating will be able to run for a shorter amount of time to complete a job, than one with a lower CFM rating.
Compressor-powered tools have varying CFM requirements for operation. To identify whether your compressed air system should include a tank, you’ll have to first consider what tools you’ll be using, and how you will be using them. Generally, tanks make compressed air systems operate more efficiently and reliably.
- Duty Cycle
An air compressor’s duty cycle refers to the amount of time a compressor can run before it needs to stop so it can cool down and prevent damage. A continuous duty compressor is rated to run continuously, or 100% of the time at a specified ambient temperature. A compressor with a duty cycle of 50% on the other hand, will need to stop and rest for the same amount of time it is expected to run. For example, if it runs for 5 minutes, it then needs to rest and cool for another 5 minutes before running again.
Pounds per square inch (PSI) refers to the force of air a compressor can produce. Air tools have particular PSI requirements that must be met.
