Primary Air Compressor with Dryer & Aftercooler & Quiet Compressor
Has anyone experience with the GMC air compressor company? They apparently make very quite air compressors and they call their models "Syclone". This compressor would be our primary compressor - the one supplying the Shoebox with the needed 85 psi. I just watched their Youtube videos and they seem amazingly quiet.
Here's their compressor page:
The California Air Tools company has a new model coming out that they advertize is also quiet and will dry the compressed air via a drying filter AND an aftercooler. I think the aftercooler is the best part because of the physics involved in drying hot air generated by compressing the air. This is where I think the air needs to be treated in order to dry it - just do some research about aftercoolers and see that it is a big part of what they use in industry (we have a nice unit at work too).
Here's a link for this one:
I have requested more info from them, as this is a new product, but have not heard back from them yet.
In case you are wondering, I have no affiliation with either company but if they are what they seem I may be their customer before too long.
Please respond if you know anything about them because I am shopping for a very quiet compressor to use in my house to replace the extremely noisey pancake compressor I have.
Thank you all.
Give this a try~
I have a Rolair JC-10 and it is super quiet. Here is a link to the best price I could find with free shipping.
I just got off the phone with them and they have 13 in stock, now only 12, and they will ship the next day with free shipping.
I found a Rolair JC-10 locally for $119.00 (plus ~ $16.00 sales tax, but no wait). Nice, lightweight, quiet unit. I can hardly wait for my Shoebox to arrive on Tuesday & I must commend Tom & company on the speedy order processing!
