Omega Air Charger
« on: December 20, 2016, 02:06:46 PM »
I got the Air Charger this morning, so a big thanks to the guys at Airhog. Nice to work with Dave and John. Of course I tested it!

Ran the tank down today with 4 reloads, which put the pressure right at 3,700 psi. Hooked it up to the Omega, and less than 8 minutes later, 4,500 psi! That is about 6 times faster than the Freedom8. Much quieter too. I be happy.

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

Alan, have you had much time to use it ? Just curious how the past week has been.

Yes I have. In fact, just yesterday.

From 3,700 to 4,500 takes ≈8 minutes! The ambient temperature makes a bit of different. They tell you is takes 3.75 to 4 hours to fill a 12 cf tank from 0 to 4,500 pounds. It doesn't! Fact is, it only take 3 hours!

It is quiet too compared to the Shoebox. The requisite shop compressor sounds rather loud as well. About all you hear from the Omega is the cooling fan running, and the swish, swish of the main compressing cylinder.

It is going to get a workout tomorrow, as I'm driving down to Carlsbad, to join Lon. I have two guns to site in, and he wants to plink a few bunnies. Aught to be fun!
