When looking at COMPACT air compressors (not the big ones with bulky tanks), the typical compact 12v model sold by auto stores is made primarily for inflating tyres (see pic below).
I have been told that these do not deliver enough CFM to produce a strong air burst into free air - such as for cleaning
orifice or dislodging dirt stuck in a tight corner.
Sticking with 12volt and compact size, I'm trying to find an off-the-shelf product that can actually work
well for such jobs.
I am prepared to accept a very short but powerful air burst (say 2/3 seconds) followed by a re-charge interval.
Size wise, let's target the size of a larger shoe box. If it has a tank, maybe a 1 quart (1 litre) size would be compact enough, especially if it can be detached for storage
Think there's any candidate products out there, or does simple physics make this unobtainable ?
