Commonly referred to as compressed air tools, pneumatic technology uses compressed air or carbon dioxide as a power source. There are many advantages to this technology and few disadvantages to consider as well. Pneumatic tools are cost efficient and safe to operate in comparison to other power tools. In the event of a defect, air tools have fewer parts to repair. They also have a high power-to-weight ratio. Browse through and find your air tool or find replacement parts for your tool.
These tools are connected to an air compressor or carbon dioxide tank by an air hose (which can be inconvenient in comparison to cordless power tools). The power and force from the compressed air does all the work. Pneumatic air tools are highly efficient and can be used with surfaces such as wood, concrete, metal, etc. and in drilling and fastening applications.
Some of the more common air-powered tools include the following:
Pneumatic drills are commonly used because they offer efficiency with a lower cost of operation.
Nail guns drive nails into wood or similar surfaces creating a bond between two items, such as 2x4s. Pneumatic nail guns make projects like roofing go exponentially faster in comparison to projects accomplished with traditional framing hammers.
Jack Hammers are also referred to as pavement breakers and this air tool combines a hammer and a chisel to chip away and break any type of hard surface, such as concrete.
Impact wrenches perform the same task socket wrenches, but at a much faster pace. Pneumatic impact wrenches are design to offer high torque with minimal exertion by the user. These pneumatic tools are most commonly used in the automotive business and with heavy equipment.
The tools mentioned above are just a few of the pneumatic air tools we carry here at PlumbersStock. The following are more tools you are sure to find helpful:
Though generally safe, take extra caution with pneumatic technology because, as mentioned, they tend to offer more power and force than corded and battery-powered tools. Also, keep in mind you will need to lug around a compressed air source and hose to utilize your tool, which is inconvenient and may make certain tasks difficult to complete, so if you need more freedom to operate, consider cordless power tools.
