Anyone on here an expert on 12V electric motors?
I have a York air compressor that is currently run off my serpentine system but things maybe changing soon and I am looking into the feasibility of running it off an electric motor. Oasis compressors are essentially electric driven Yorks but they cost more than their weight in gold so Im wondering what it would take to convert mine over.
High level, I need a compact (small as possible ideally) 12V electric motor that has 100% duty cycle at ~5K rpm. I believe the York has a max rpm of 6K so figure this would be a good rpm to be at or is that too high? On the sepentine system, it only runs at ~800 rpm so maybe 5K is high but I definitely want to spin it faster. Filling 40s sucks no matter what.
Cant find the rpm on Oasis's site but hp figures vary from 2.2 to 5 depending on which part of the page you read.
There are several really good machine shops local to me that can make an adapter to get the motor working with the pump.
