We have been using a compressor since we bought the first one with no problems. We have a small compressor in the shop, a larger one for job sites, and a gas driven one for outside work. The small one has a about a three gallon tank and 4.5 cfm recovery we run 30 to 60 psi depending on the balloon size. We find better control of balloon size with lower preasure and longer fill time on 5" and smaller. The next compressor is a 15 gallon tank and 5 cfm recovery rate. If you are filling 11" balloons to 11" and can fill and tie 10 balloons per minute you will keep the compressor huffing and puffing. We did this once with 6 free flow push down nozzles and three people filling balloons. I have worked on other crews with two dual sizers and two people filling and handing off to the tiers. we had to slow down and let the compressor catch-up to us. Now I want Conwin to tell me what kind of inverter I need to run the dual sizer from the car battery or altenator.? Len CBA Designing Parties New Port Richey FL Don PS. There is a balloon artist in East Longmeadow MA that has a larger compressor than any of mine.
