The 80-3N air compressor has a 1/8” BSP output and comes with two adaptors. One adaptor is for a push on hose and the other lets you connect Badger hoses.
Attach airbrush to air hose; connect the air hose to the air compressor, plug the adaptor from transformer into the compressor. Plug the transformerinto a power socket. To start compressor, press the red power on/off button.
The pressure can be adjusted by turning the regulator clock wise to decrease and counter clockwise to increase.
Check for air leaks. If the compressor frequently starts and stops there may be an air leak at one of the connections. Be sure airbrush to air hose and air hose to air compressor connections are firmly tightened. The use of PTFE tape on the connections will help prevent leakage.
There is a difference between maximum pressure and working pressure. A compressor’s maximum pressure is the highest pressure it can produce. When an airbrush is connected to the compressor and activated, the compressed air initially released through the airbrush nozzle is the maximum pressure. In contrast, the working pressure is the constant pressure the compressor will maintain while airbrushing. The level of the working pressure depends on the diameter of the airbrush nozzle; the larger the nozzle, the greater the amount of air released, which will lower the compressor’s working pressure.
Always choose the appropriate air compressor with suitable air flow and pressure according to the actual working requirement.
Before connecting the compressor, check that the voltage is in compliance with the electrical requirements of the compressor motor.
Please follow local electrical regulations and safety precautions. If socket/adapter is used it must be grounded.
Never leave the compressor exposed to excessive dust, acids, vapors, explosive or flammable gasses or atmospheric agents (rain, sun, fog, snow).
The compressor must be used in suitable environments, well-ventilated with an ambient temperature between 41 degrees Fahrenheit (5°Ê) and 104 degrees (40°Ê)
Never use the compressor when bare foot; avoid contact with wet hands or feet.
Never allow children to touch the compressor while unit is in operation.
Do not open or tamper with any part of the compressor without factory consultation. Questions regarding this compressor can be addressed to:
