If you are looking for a dependable and budget-friendly dual compressor solution for your onboard air system, look no further than the Viair 280C Black and Silver air compressor dual pack. Just one gives you the most cost-effective way to run 150 PSI in tanks up to 2.5 gallons in size, running two gives you the ability to power tanks up to 5-gallons in size and fill your air tank even faster. With the Viair Dual 280C dual pack, you can recharge a 2-gallon tank from 110-145 PSI in a stunning 29 seconds and recharge a 5-gallon tank in 1 minute and 11 seconds while only pulling 45 amps for your battery, making the Viair 280C dual pack perfect for air suspension systems and medium-duty pneumatic applications, such as powering HornBlasters train horns!  

The Viair 280C dual pack comes complete with a remote mountable intake filter assembly, or “Air Filter Snorkel Kit”, allowing you to relocate the air filter up to 6 feet away to keep it away from moisture and debris. It also includes a standard 1/4″ NPT stainless steel braided leader hose with check valve and insulated wiring for fast installation, as well as two heavy-duty 40-amp relays and a 165 PSI cut-on, 200 PSI cut-off heavy-duty pressure switch.

This compressor does come with the option to add our 40 Amp Air Compressor Wiring Kit to it as well!

Note: Use thread sealant for proper installation. Thread tape is not recommended. Properly sealed, recommended torque for 1/8″ is 10 ~ 11 ft. lbs. Recommended torque for 1/4″ and 3/8″ is 12 ~ 15 ft. lbs.
