Air compressors are available in so many different varieties; therefore, it can be difficult to choose the one that’s best for you. However, with a little bit of help from an expert, you’ll soon navigate your way and find an air compressor that’s perfect for you.
At Mobile Energy Australia, we stock a wide range of portable air compressors, suitable for a range of different applications whether that be light or heavy work. Today, we’re looking at the benefits and applications of diesel air compressors, specifically small diesel air compressors, and why you might choose to purchase one.
Diesel air compressors are best known for being able to provide a high level of durability, reliability and serviceability compared to other air compressors. Therefore, diesel air compressors are often selected to power heavy machinery, or to take on a long road trip as the user knows it has the best chance of providing pressurised air when they need it.
The reason why diesel air compressors are so reliable is because of their sufficient air volume, referred on the machine’s specifications as CFM and pressure (PSI). Having a sufficient air volume means that the air compressor is suitable for a larger range of applications – powering both your lighter tools and heavier tools.
In addition, diesel is far more economical than petrol, but how economical it is will depend on how often you use the machine and what type of work you’re using it for. Finally, diesel is a really low maintenance machine due to its robust engine design and effective power transfer, making it a great option for business owners that don’t have the time or extra costs to constantly service an air compressor.

Why a Small Air Compressor?
When it comes to machinery, some people may have the idea that bigger is better; however, this isn’t necessarily the case when it comes to air compressors. At Mobile Energy Australia, we specialise in portable air compressors, which, in order to be easily portable, need to be smaller in dimensions. Small air compressors are great because they’re really easy to use and move around, fitting on any vehicle and not taking up too much space in your work area.
Additionally, small air compressors are great because they don’t produce as much noise as larger machines. This is important because not only is this great in neighbourhoods, but in workplaces where there are strict regulations around decibels.
Our Small Diesel Compressors
At Mobile Energy Australia, we have a range of portable small diesel air compressors available that are suitable for a range of applications. Regardless of the type of machine you choose, all of our air compressors are manufactured with rotary screw technology, allowing us to provide 100% duty cycle and free air on demand.
Our most powerful diesel air compressor is the SMAC 40-D, which has an airflow of 40CFM and a PSI of 145. Second to this is the SMAC 35-DG which is a dual air compressor and generator system, the SMAC 40-D with fuel tank and battery module, the SMAC 35-DWG , the Smartpack 35-D and D Plus, and the SMAC 35-DG with fuel tank and battery module. Each of these machines have an airflow of 35CFM, but with different features that will suit varying applications.
