How to Choose the Best Truck Mounted Compressor?

Whether you are offering roadside services or working on an oil field, the ability to weld on-site can be really helpful. This is where the versatility of a service truck comes into play. Truck air compressors play an important role in this but selecting the right one to mount on your truck is not an easy task. You need to have the proper knowledge to understand what works best for your situation.

Why Should You Consider Truck Mounted Air Compressors?

Traditional compressors tend to occupy valuable cargo space, which reduces the room for supplies and tools in your truck. Mounted ones solve that problem by freeing up cargo space without compromising on functionality. Certain other important reasons on why you should consider equipping air compressors on trucks are:

  • Multi-functionality - Truck mounted compressors are used in multiple applications including arc welding and powering high-power tools.

  • Welding capacity – Features such as safe multi-function capabilities, auto throttle control and CV Mig capabilities help a lot in high-frequency welding.

  • Accessory potential – Truck mounted air compressors feature additional accessories such as battery booster cables, longer welding cables, condensation drains, larger fuel tanks, GFI kits and cold weather kits.

Picking the Right Air Compressor for Your Truck

Here are the three key considerations to keep in mind while selecting the best compressor to mount:

  • Size and weight of the compressor A lighter compressor offers a significant advantage in saving fuel. Rotary screw compressors are the best in this regard because they are lighter than piston compressors. They are time-tested and can be relied upon for long periods of time. They also enable consistent air delivery.

  • Continuous air power It’s important to choose compressors that provide continuous air supply for reduced downtime and lesser costs. This allows jobs to be completed at the fastest rate possible. It is important to select a compressor that enables this feature.

  • Cost Cost is a critical factor to consider while selecting a compressed air system. It’s important to maintain a balance between the cost and performance quality.
