Why is my Air Compressor pulsing at low PSI settings?
Joe's Assistant
27 months ago

When filling low pressure objects, such as sports balls, to a PSI lower than average atmospheric pressure (~14 PSI), the air compressor may pulse on and off during inflation. The pulsing is due to the compressor creating air pressure stability within the object to achieve accurate inflation pressure, and the machine will turn off automatically at the set pressure per normal.
