Id think the 3000 PSI is more what the compressor is "CAPABLE OF" delivering into a closed receiver tank (NOT that in your tank theres instantly 3000 PSI developed, it has to pump and fill it to that pressure). When the tank is at atmosphere and you start pumping air into it under pressure it pumps until its pressure is matched or the tank or lines explodes or the relief valve pops open etc. If its a shop compressor that may only be 200 PSI but yours can develop 3000 PSI if left discharging into a suitable receiver system.

I guess what Im saying is if you take its discharge and put it in a regular shop tank and set the shut off pressure switch to 200 PSI it will shut off upon 200 PSI being reached EVEN THOUGH IT HAS THE CAPACITY TO GO AHEAD TO 3000. Ive had several compressors that could (if left running) achieve say 150 PSI but my pressure switch shuts them off at 100.

HOWEVER I am guessing it doesnt have much CFM flow capoacity and if you were to try and use it to fill a typical small 30 gallon home shop tank only to 100 PSI (then shut it off) Im afraid it will take a longggggggggg time. A shop air tool may use 100 PSI at say 5 CFM (My big compressor can do like 4 CFM at 100 PSI) and Id guess your compressor has wayyyyyyyyy less CFM capacity???

Okay compressor experts, where am I wrong?? I say it has the CAPACITY to pump to 3000 PSI but could still be used to pump into a tank and shut off at 100 PSI BUT IT HAS A LOWWWWWWW CFM RATING???? Too long to fill a tank and couldnt keep up with a 100 PSI 4 CFM Impact Wrench too well

Talk to us???????
