TC910 Aspire Pro Compressor

The TC910 Aspire Pro Compressor is the ideal compressor for high frequency use. This compressor is designed with the professional in mind, and comes with a one gallon air tank to ensure a smooth and constant air flow without pulsing. The combination of an on/off toggle switch and an automatic shut-off allows you to worry about your work and not cycling your compressor. This maintenance-free compressor comes to you from Franklin Park, IL.

What’s in the box?

The TC190 Aspire Pro Compressor comes ready to be paired with an airbrush appropriate to your needs. The inclusion of an air storage tank with this model will provide some added benefits for you and your compressor. The tank acts as a first line moisture trap before air gets to the in-line moisture trap. In use, you will be drawing air from the reservoir, which means that you are drawing from a more constant air pressure source instead of the average of piston compression. This translates into an alleviation of the “pulse” of output generated by the compressor’s piston physically compressing the air. The tank also helps your compressor by limiting the amount of time that it actually has to run, since the compressor is feeding the tank instead of the airbrush directly.

Additional Features

In addition to the benefits of having an air tank, your Badger Co. compressor features the following: an air pressure gauge, air filter, and adjustable air pressure regulator. The compressor is of the oil-less single piston design. The combination of your compressor and its air tank means that you will have immediate pressure with continuous flow while not having to manually toggle on and off as needed. This all comes in a package that will only generate 47 decibels of noise, which is quieter than a normal conversation being held at 3 feet away.
