Iwata Great White Shark Airbrush Compressor
Silent Air Compressors
Designer: Mark "the Shark" Rush
Anyone who's used an Iwata Shark air compressor -- developed alongside Mark "the Shark" Rush -- knows that these babies run cooler, more efficiently and quieter than previous models and competing products do. This compressor, lovingly named the Great White Shark, sports a 5/8 Hp motor to make sure it packs the power you need. Next, the Great White has a high-powered fan positioned so that it sends cool air over the head of the aforementioned motor to keep it cool and avoid overheating issues. As yet another preventative measure against overheating, this compressor has a top-quality radiator that chills air prior to hitting the coalescent air filter. Best of all, the Great White Shark has a hefty 4-gallon tank sitting on top of it all to complete the unit. The tank's positioning isn't just for good looks; placing the 4-gallon tank atop the rest of the unit uses gravity (and amazing filters) to remove moisture and oil from the hose before it gets to the tank. The air goes through one last filter after leaving this monster of a tank and reaches your airbrush. You can't beat this sort of quality and care in an airbrush compressor!
When you buy the Great White Shark for all of your airbrushing needs, you're getting Iwata Medea's latest and greatest design. The Great White Shark even looks cooler than competitors do. All of the compressor's components are protected in an awesome dual-roll bar cage-on-wheels to keep everything safe, including your sanity, whenever you need to transport the unit. It will deliver some of the cleanest, driest air you've ever airbrushed with. The best part? There's hardly any maintenance required and they've thought of everything to make the Great White Shark the front of its class. It even has a 10-foot power cord that lets you plug it directly into the main power source instead of using an underpowered extension cord. This is yet another genius design element that'll make sure you never have to pause a project because of an overheated compressor again.
The Iwata Great White Shark Airbrush Compressor is designed with heavy-duty studio use in mind. It's also excellent for teams of textile artists and T-shirt designers. The Great White Shark is even powerful enough to drive the Iwata RG-2 and other small spray guns for automotive, ceramic and fine art painting. What are you waiting for? The Great White Shark will blow every compressor you've ever used out of the water with better function, a sleeker design and a (much) cooler name.
