1. The AS180-12 air compressor has a 1/8’’BSP outlet with an attached 1/4”
2.Attach airbrush to air hose; connect the air hose to the air compressor,
plug into power supply. To start compressor,press power switch on top
of compressor to “on”.
3. 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.
4.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.
1.Always choose the appropriate air compressor with suitable air flow and
pressure according to the actual working requirement.
2. Before connecting the compressor, check that the voltage is in
compliance with the electrical requirements of the compressor motor.
3. Please follow local electrical regulations and safety precautions. If
socket/adapter is used it must be grounded.
4. Never leave the compressor exposed to excessive dust, acids, vapors,
explosive or flammable gasses or atmospheric agents (rain, sun, fog,
5.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)
6. Never use the compressor when bare foot;avoid contact with wet hands
7. Never allow children to touch the compressor while unit is in operation.
Do not place any foreign objects in the compressor which may cause
burns or electric shock.
8. Do not open or tamper with any part of the compressor without factory
consultation. Questions regarding this compressor can be addressed to:
