What Air Pressure Is Required To Run An Air Caster System

Air Casters are powered by compressed air (pneumatically), and it is important to note that compressed air can be delivered to systems at different pressures. Too much air pressure will often cause air powered tools and equipment to work incorrectly, or not as designed by the manufacturer.

90 psi (6.2 bar) is required for virtually all of Hovair's air caster machine moving equipment.

10-12 SCFM is required for each load module in a 16,000 pound system.

Below you can see a diagram of a typical Hovair air caster system footprint. Each module in this 16000 pound system will require around 10 to 12 scfm for this weight capacity. Therefore the whole system will require around 40 to 48 scfm to lift and move 16000 pounds (7.257 kgs).
