  • Robert from USA asked:

    Is this air compressor oil cooled, or fan cooled, if oil cooled why only a couple of drops of Silicone. How long can I run this compressor before it may overheat, if I and a friend has an air rifle and both are using this compressor.

    • Tyler from USA:

      Fan cooled. Oil lubricated. You shouldn't be running the compressor for more than the 10-15 minutes max that it would take to fill a gun.

  • Dragon from USA asked:

    is it normal for the male connector to have air come out

    • Tyler from USA:

      If you mean it's leaking, no that is not normal.

  • Grant from Australia asked:

    In the manual it states that the output air filter must be replaced every 2-3 hours of use. Do you stock the filters? If the filters job is to absorb water can I just remove it and let it air dry for a day or two and then reuse it once the moisture has evaporated?

    • Tyler from USA:

      Pyramyd will be stocking them, yes. Probably not, you'd have to squeeze them out to remove all of the moisture and then it would deform the filter

  • Hander from Brazil asked:

    A loja envia para o brasil???

    • richard from USA asked:

      with this compressor can I fill my 92 c.f. carbon fiber 4500psi tank? if I fill 1000psi every 5minutes

      • Carlton from USA:

        Talked to Air Venturi 8/25/18. They said if filling 1000psi every 5 min watching the load gage and bleeding the rhe valve. . . . . .I could fill a 90cu 15" Benjamin Tank with no problems. Main thing is to not to overheat the motor by filling without periodic stops and valve bleeds. Call Air Venturi for more info.

    • stephen from Australia asked:

      Not recommended would be the answer to can it fill my Ninja 90 bottle. But what if i fill it in two, three or more distinct runs; does that void the warranty? Do you ship international to Australia - where the air gun laws are ridiculous. Just thought I would mention that in case anyone thinks 'Down Under" has a functional regulatory model - because we don't. What is the expected run life (in hours) of the unit if properly maintained?

      • Riccardo from USA asked:

        Does this model have the automatic shut-off?

        • Brian from USA:

          Yes

        • Tyler from USA:

          Yes

      • Dieter from USA asked:

        Are there any instructions for safe use???? Mine had none, not a word

      • Jimmie from USA asked:

        Can this compressor be used to fill bottle air tanks?

        • Tyler from USA:

          That would take quite a while, and I still wouldn't recommend it. Per the manual, using it to fill those larger cylinders will void your warranty.

        • Riccardo from USA:

          I understand you can just run it for no more than 20min at a time

        • Tyler from USA:

          This is only made to fill rifle and pistol cylinders, not stand alone SCUBA or SCBA tanks

      • Riccardo from USA asked:

        what is the difference between the nomad and the nomad ii?

        • Tyler from USA:

          There are a few differences. The big one is that the power supply (inverter) is built into the Nomad II. So no extra large parts to carry around. The Nomad II also has the LED lights built in which are a nice touch and a electrical shut off so you don't have to unplug and plug it back in when you want to run it (when using a wall outlet). And it comes with a nice carry bag that everything fits into perfectly.

      • Chevota from USA asked:

        Seems to me it would be 120V, then use an inverter to draw from 12V, but apparently it's the other way around? So if this is a 12V motor then should I expect a short life from it? Is this basically more of a car/field use unit to used now and then vs a home unit? I'm picturing people buying it and filling theirs and their friends big tanks to 4500 and poof... Also, what about water? Is there a way to catch it at what I assume is stage one before psi gets crazy? I'm not interested in an expensive high psi filter.

        • Tyler from USA:

          So the inverter connects to the wall outlet, and then the other end connects to the compressor. There's a big bold note on the page that says it is only for filling PCP airguns, not large tanks. There is a filter system inline with the lubrication system (technically stage two) that catches a good amount of moisture, because of the relatively short times this unit would be used for (think topping off a Marauder, takes 2-3 minutes) the low pressure moisture release valve only needs to be opened every so often.

      • James from USA asked:

        I have an Umarex Gauntlet and have ordered the Seneca Wing Shot 2. Is this compressor adequate for both guns?

        • Tyler from USA:

          Yes

      • Robert from USA asked:

        Regarding the picture of this compressor, there appears to be a light gray box added to the picture. Am I correct that this small box is an addition to the picture and secondly what is this box? Thank You Bob

        • Tyler from USA:

          That is the power supply that is needed to operate the compressor from a 110V or 220V outlet.

      • Justin from USA asked:

        So where is the main manual it should be available by now?

        • Brian from USA:

          Mine came with a very detailed instruction manual

        • Tyler from USA:

          Should be available within the next week or so.

      • Robert from USA asked:

        Has the estimated arrival date been changed again??

        • Tyler from USA:

          Right, I hear ya. PA probably just adding a little time to account for potential hold ups. Last update I got, everything is still looking good for Early August.

        • Robert from USA:

          Tyler, the new date of the 13th I believe is the second week. Earlier this month I believe the date was the 4th, which is the first week. This change was the reason for my question. Thank You

        • Tyler from USA:

          It still looks like first week of august barring any customs issues.

      • Robert from USA asked:

        Tyler, does it appear that the expected quantity of the first shipment of this compressor is large enough to satisfy the quantity that has been pre-ordered by the customers? Or will some customers have to wait until the next shipment?

        • Tyler from USA:

          Yes. The buy button will be removed once the number of pre-orders meets the quantity of the first shipment.

      • Matt from USA asked:

        It would take me 35 years to break even at the cost and rate I fill up my 80 size scuba tank. I won't live long enough to break even.

        • Tyler from USA:

          Then don't buy it? It's not made to fill tanks anyway

      • Robert from USA asked:

        I ask earlier about the availability of this compressor when it was scheduled to arrive the end of July this year, which was the second estimated date, I just checked the arrival date and now it is August!!! What is going on? Are some people getting preferential consideration? When I ask earlier Tyler you said you were told July was a firm date!!! I want to purchase a PCP rifle from Pymramid Air, but not before I have a compressor to fill the rifle.

        • Robert from USA:

          Thank You Tyler

        • Tyler from USA:

          Spoke with the guys at AV for an update. They said they should be shipping within the next week, which means it's a few weeks on the boat and then they clear customs. PA pushed the date out to allow for any hold ups from customs. If there are no customs hold ups, we should have them end of July.

      • Dustin from USA asked:

        is this thing going to come out this year? I ordered mine back in March and this is the second time the eta date has been pushed back. I had planned on using my guns this year but at this point half the summer will be over.

        • Tyler from USA:

          Yes, they should be in stock around the first week of August

      • RICHARD from USA asked:

        Will this fill the hatsan barrage Or will I need a different compressor?

        • Tyler from USA:

          Yes, it can fill a barrage.

      • K.C. from USA asked:

        Is there any routine maintenance that should be done on the unit by the end user?

        • Brian from USA:

          I have this unit and it comes with very detailed instructions

        • Tyler from USA:

          Any necessary maintenance will be shown in the manual that will come with the unit. At this point, I believe the only things that are necessary is a little lubrication and replacement of the output filter.

      • Matthew from USA asked:

        Would this compressor be appropriate for use in filling the Benjamin Armada (215cc stated tank)?

        • Tyler from USA:

          Yes

      • James from USA asked:

        Ok, havent seen anyone ask so will this fill the Benjamin Bullpup and how long to fill?

        • Tyler from USA:

          A bulldog is around a 300cc cylinder, so from empty, around 10-11 minutes

      • james from USA asked:

        Im interested in what temperature range one can operate it? Ambient high/low recommended ?? Being air cooled I would think it would be overheating easily on 80F days.

        • Tyler from USA:

          During the course of a longer fill, the temperature readings in testing have gone up to around 60C, so 140 F. The ambient temp is not a huge factor.

      • Robert from USA asked:

        I have pre ordered this compressor. As I check the estimated availability date the date gets pushed out. We are now into a July 2018 date. How confident can I be that this latest date will be made? Because of the delays should I be concerned the manufacturer can produce a quality product?

        • Tyler from USA:

          At this point, everything I have been told is that July is a firm date. I believe the delay has had to do with an increase in the number produced because of the demand. These come from the same manufacturer of the Air Venturi 4500 psi big compressor, so I'm confident it will be a good unit.

      • Brandon from USA asked:

        Hey Tyler i would suggest that pyramyd air gets a telegram channel going to allow for faster and better answer to questions... you could even set up separate channels for different departments... sales, GQ, service ect...

        • Tyler from USA:

          Brandon, if you need faster answers to questions, I'd recommend calling the office.

      • Gerald from USA asked:

        How does the 12v adapter connect to a vehicle?

        • Tyler from USA:

          Jumper cables

      • Michael from USA asked:

        Why is it not recommend to fill off a carbon tank? Will it damage the unit? Seems to me the cost justification still favors a scuba tank?

        • Tyler from USA:

          Filling off a carbon tank? Not sure what you mean by that. It's not recommended to fill a carbon fiber tank or any large volume tank (3000 psi scuba tank included). This is made to fill smaller volume cylinders, I would say 500cc max, though I do intend to test it with larger volume cylinders when I get mine.

      • Joe from USA asked:

        What type oil is needed to run the 4500 psi compressor and where can I get it

        • Brian from USA:

          Although this unit is cooled by a fan it does require 2-3 drops of oil after every 4th fill. It comes with a little bottle of compressor oil

        • Skinnymitch from USA:

          Fan cooled

        • Tyler from USA:

          This compressor does not use a motor oil to lubricate it.

      • mike from USA asked:

        What is the power requirements, 12 volts how many amps? Trying to determine battery requirements. Is 110 volts power run thru transformer to supply 12 volt power?

        • Tyler from USA:

          It pulls around 5 amps. And yes, there is a transformer that plugs into the wall outlet on one end (or battery) and then plugs into the Nomad on the other.

      • Riccardo from USA asked:

        I know you are sick of question about whether this can compressor can be used for filling/topping large scuba tanks but can it at least fill the small 50 Cubic inch or 88 Ci tanks?

        • Tyler from USA:

          While it's not recommended, I would think it can do the 50 CI without much issue, at least to 3000 or 3600 psi as there are guns that have 1000 cc capacity and 50 ci is about 800 cc.

      • george from USA asked:

        can this fill....air force talon....Benjamin marauder pistol....evanix rex pistol and rifle . i have these air guns

        • Tyler from USA:

          Yes, yes and yes. You'd need a quick disconnect adapter for the fill probe on the Rex, but the end of the hose will link right up to your Marauder pistol and Talon.

      • Jeremy from USA asked:

        Will this work on a Hatsan bullboss or a AT44?

        • Brian from USA:

          I have this unit and the Bull Boss. The unit comes with a Quick Disconnect and yes it takes about 2 minutes to fill from 1100 to 2900.

        • Tyler from USA:

          Sure, just need a Air Venturi Male Quick-Disconnect, 1/8"... adapter for the end of your fill probe to connect to the end of the Nomad's hose

      • Leonel from USA asked:

        Can you fill their ace venturi 88 cu. tank with this is it possible? Or should I just go for the big compressor 1,299 ...I got the cash or just get both ?

        • Tyler from USA:

          This compressor is not recommended for filling tanks, you'd be better off getting the big AV 4500 psi compressor.

      • Dusty from USA asked:

        What is the warranty?

        • Tyler from USA:

          1 year

      • Michael from USA asked:

        How is auto-shutoff pressure adjusted?

        • Tyler from USA:

          The silver knurled dial in the center of the pressure gauge adjusts it.

      • Ievgen from USA asked:

        What is its power draw on 12v? What type of 110v to 12v inverter does it use?

        • Robert from USA asked:

          What type of compressor oil does this compressor use ? can I use regular compressor oil or does it require a special oil?

          • Brian from USA:

            Yes it does, 2-3 drops of compressor oil after every 4th fill. The unit comes with a small bottle of oil

          • Tyler from USA:

            This compressor does not require oil

        • Gregory from USA asked:

          "The power supply that has been used for initial testing is actual capable of operating on 110 or 220. Whether that is what will be included with the production units is still not clear." So, purchasing this may mean you need a 220 source?

          • Brian from USA:

            I have this unit and you have the option of 110 or 220. There is a switch,like a light switch, located just inside the unit..Use a screwdriver or Allen wrench to flip the switch to your desired source! Comes set on 110.

          • Tyler from USA:

            No. It will at the very least come with a power supply set up for 110. Whether it will still be able to work with both is unknown, but definitely 110V.

        • Dave from USA asked:

          Tyler, how many more times do you think you'll be asked if the Nomad can fill a large air tank before it sinks in? People, read the thread before asking already answered questions, please!

          • BordertownDevil from USA:

            Hahaha!!!!

          • Tyler from USA:

            Oh, probably quite a few LOL

        • Ramona from USA asked:

          To lower cost, why not offer this without the 110v converter?

          • Tyler from USA:

            It does not add that much to the cost in all honesty.

        • Robert from USA asked:

          Does this compressor require water to cool it, does the water valve require changing after many uses. Also where is this compressor made and are parts available if something goes wrong?

          • Tyler from USA:

            No, it is entirely fan cooled. As for the filter, it really depends on how long your fills are. You're going to need to change it faster if you're filling 500 cc cylinders versus 200cc. They are made in China and Air Venturi will have parts available.

        • Ramona from USA asked:

          How many amps does it pull in 12v?

          • Tyler from USA:

            Around 5

        • Lehman from USA asked:

          Does this filter out moisture?

          • Tyler from USA:

            Yes, the gold looking piece that the hose is connected to has a cartridge filter inside of it.

        • Frank from USA asked:

          Will this fill the air ventri cylinder for Mcx air rifle to replace the 88gram co2 tank

          • Tyler from USA:

            Yes, that is a little over 200cc's so it will not be a problem to fill.

        • Bruce from USA asked:

          Could this be used for filling a Benjamin 90 cu. in. tank say from 2000 to 4500 psi? Is there a maximum run time or does it just not produce enough air?

          • Tyler from USA:

            It's not recommended, but it is capable of a top off fill on a small cylinder. From 2000 psi, it would take about 40 minutes to do though, and I would recommend doing it in one shot. I would do it in 500 or 1000 psi increments.

        • Shane from USA asked:

          Is this thing any good? How long does it take to fill a PCP air rifle? Like a Benjamin Marauder? I know it's relatively new on the market but I'd like to know about warranty and any issues

          • Brian from USA:

            I have this unit and it can fill the Hatsan Bull Boss in about 2 minutes. I have only used it 5 times but I think that it might be a keeper. Comes with very detailed instructions and manual

          • Tyler from USA:

            Did you read the fill times list? If it fills an Evanix which has roughly 40 more cc's of volume to fill from empty in 9 minutes, a Marauder will be about 7-8 minutes from empty. A top off from say 1500-3000 psi on a Marauder will be about 4-5 mins. It's a one year warranty on this unit. Fill times will continue to be updated as more rifles are filled with it.

          • Kenneth from USA:

            I'm gonna say yes because it say Texas be bore rifle witch is 490c tank withax 300 psi and 17min fill. The benjamin also should be less time cuz I have that one and bulldog. For warranty IDK would like to know also cuz I have the 50cal hammer on back order and would like to get this if can fill that considering it needs 4500 psi and pump says up to that.

        • efromejia from USA asked:

          Is this compressor able to fill a 88 cu in 4500 psi carbon tank?

          • Tyler from USA:

            Not recommended

        • Robert from USA asked:

          Hello, can you tell me the size of the 12 volt / 120 power supply?

          • Tyler from USA:

            The physical size: 8.5 L x 4.5 W x 2.25 H

        • Tommy from USA asked:

          How many air rifle can this fill back to back? Or is there a resting/cooling period after each fill?

          • Tyler from USA:

            The unit cools very quickly once done running, so there should be no issue with doing guns back to back, especially for top off fills

        • David from USA asked:

          What can it fill?, more important how long to fill...

          • Tyler from USA:

            Did you not read the fill times in the description?

        • David from New Zealand asked:

          What is the power supply voltage? I am in NZ, the power supply is AC 240V ? however I do have a 240V to 120V step-down transformer if needs be

          • Tyler from USA:

            The power supply that has been used for initial testing is actual capable of operating on 110 or 220. Whether that is what will be included with the production units is still not clear.

        • joverton from USA asked:

          Can this be use to fill a 90 cu in carbon fiber tank?

          • Michael from USA:

            Why is it not recommended? Takes too long or damages the unit? I would be interested in the unit if I could fill my carbon tank as a portable air supply when out in the field.

          • Tyler from USA:

            Not recommended.

        • joverton from USA asked:

          How is this cooled?

          • Tyler from USA:

            Fan cooled

        • ANTHONY from USA asked:

          Can this Compressor be used to top-off a scuba tank?

          • Tyler from USA:

            Not recommended

        • Norman from USA asked:

          Can this be used to fill a large carbon fiber air tank?

          • Tyler from USA:

            Not recommended

        • Cristian from USA asked:

          Can I fill a scuba tank of 74cu-ft???

          • Tyler from USA:

            Not recommended

        • buck from USA asked:

          How loud is this little beauty?

          • Brian from USA:

            I have this unit and I guess that depends on where you'll be using it. I have used mine in my kitchen and it's pretty loud, but outside not so much. It' back yard friendly.

          • Tyler from USA:

            About 92 dB with a sound meter right next to it
