An Overview of BOSS Air’s BA440 Industrial Air Compressor

A piston air compressor is a popular type of displacement compressor, which is designed for smaller sites, and is generally not meant for continuous heavy workload. It uses pistons driven by a crankshaft to deliver air at high pressure. The BA440 is one of the industrial air compressors by BOSS Air. It is known for being one of the smallest compressors in the market, weighing only 180 lbs. It produces up to 40cfm @ 150psi. It has an aluminum compressor assembly that contributes to it lighter weight and higher thermal efficiency.

The BOSS Air BA440 has an integrated hydraulic system cooler to handle air compressor GPM flow. This compressor has to be pressure lubricated via an oil lamp and splash lubrication. For easy cooling of the air compressor, a 12VDC electric 14” fan is integrated into the package. Also, during the installation process, it’s important to leave a 10” clearance for coolant air discharge. The ambient temperature for operations has to be below 100°F (38°C), else the machine could experience high temperature shutdown. The BA440 is considered an ideal air compressor for mechanics and tire service professionals.
