The Eco-Air 20, a Dru Blair recommended silent compressor
The Eco-Air 20, made in Italy, is a .7 cfm (cubic feet per minute) illustrator's compressor which uses a rotary piston compressor to develop up to 88 psi (pounds per square inch). Thanks to its relatively light weight (the shipping weight is 34 lbs), and its clever combination tank/handle, it is easy to handle.
The Eco Air 20 Ultra-Quiet Compressor truly lives up to its reputation by reducing operating noise to a whisper. Plus, it's completely automatic and rigged for top-of-the-line safety, with moisture trap, pressure line regulator and safety valve. The machine’s small size makes it easily portable, or easily hidden in a commercial setting.
Not your average compressor
The Eco-Air, unlike most of the cheap compressors, uses oil (included) to operate quietly and efficiently, and the oil filler and the oil level sight glass are conveniently located. The Eco-Air is a robustly constructed, simple-to-use, and extremely quiet compressor that is appropriately sized for most non-automotive and non-textile airbrushing needs. It's well worth considering if you're in the market for a quiet compressor.
