Air compressors are extremely useful machines; they feature a powerful electric motor that compresses air into a steel tank. When the compressed air is unleashed, the pressure allows for a burst of air capable of powering many different pneumatic tools.
Air compressors can be utilized for many different purposes: repainting vehicles, installing crown molding, even inflating beds. Whether you're a professional automotive shop looking for an extremely high-pressured air compressor to be used for daily use or a home owner needing an air compressor for household and property functions, we’ve got you covered.
Garage Equipment Supply offers air compressors to meet any budget. We offer various sizes and multiple levels of power. We carry vertical air compressors and horizontal air compressors. Whatever the type of air compressor you’re looking for, you’ll find it at Garage Equipment Supply.

When it comes to a purchase as large as an industrial air compressor, you need a unit that meets all your requirements. There are two types to choose from: two-stage compressors & rotary screw compressors. Your first job is making sure which type of compressor you will need.

Two Stage Air Compressors
Air Compressor Die GrinderTwo-stage air compressors are found in many garages and manufacturing facilities. Two-stage compressors are used to power air tools, such as air hammers, die grinders, impact wrenches, and nail guns. Most have enough power to run several air tools at once.
These compressors are powered by either gas or electricity, although most are electric. Using two pistons, 2-stage units2 Stage Air Compressor compress the air twice, delivering more air power than smaller compressors.
Energy costs for two-stage units can begin to cost a lot of money, so keep that in mind when purchasing. Two-stage compressors can usually create up to about 90 CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute).
Rotary Screw Air Compressors
CP Rotary Screw CompressorRotary screw compressors are the largest, most powerful compressors on the market. If you have greater than a 60% duty-cycle need, then choose a rotary air compressor.
You will find these in the most professional garages and factories where a large amount of compressed air is required nonstop. They often provide compressed air for precision tasks such as powder-coating or sand-blasting. Rotary screw compressors are powered by two counter-rotating screws (rotors) which compress air as it is forced through the grooves of the screws.Rotary Screws
Exceptionally efficient and surprisingly quiet, rotary screw compressors are the most technologically advanced units in the compressor market. The energy consumption is extremely low despite the great power of rotary compressors. This is due to the great amount of pressure that the rotary screw system can produce, with less work to create that pressure.
Rotary Screw Air Compressor Energy Efficiency
Rotary Screw Air Compressor Buyer's Guide One of the first things you'll notice about a rotary screw air compressor is the price tag. The upfront cost is higher than other types of air compressors, but, the investment will pay off.
With reciprocating air compressors, the cost of energy required to run it can exceed the purchase price in only one year. However, with rotary screw compressors, 10 years of energy costs will roughly amount to 70% of the original purchase price.
These air compressors are built to run constantly for at least a decade. Rotary screw air compressors are designed to handle the demands of the most high-volume professional garages, factories and other industrial settings.
Because of their reliability, power, and longevity, rotary screw compressors are found on oil rigs and in amusement parks, powering roller coasters and fountains.
Garage Equipment Supply offers a variety of air compressors, vertical or horizontal and powered with gas or electricity. Choose the air compressor that will answer the needs of your professional shop or your home garage, whether it's a heavy-duty, tank-mounted floor model or a convenient portable compressor you can wheel from place to place. Accessories include compression testing kits and moisture minders.
