Media Consumption & Air Requirement Chart

Utilize the chart below to determine compressor size and estimate media consumption.

Please Note:

1.  Nozzles will wear over time, expanding the nozzle orifice, thus increasing the air requirement.

2.  Safety equipment (air-fed hoods) require additional air.

3.  It is recommended that the compressor operate at 70-80% of its rated output.
