Do you look for a Best silent and portable air compressor for your business? I found some several models of the silent air compressor. See the list of Some Silent air compressor:
  1. California Air Tools 5510SE
  2. California Air Tools 10020C
  3. California Air Tools CAT-1P1060S
  4. California Air Tools 8010 Ultra Quiet
  5. California Air Tools CAT-1P1060S
  6. Briggs & Stratton Quiet Power
  7. Campbell Hausfeld 20-Gallon
  8. Makita MAC2400 Big Bore

You can use anyone from this list, But I can refer you to use the California Air Tools 5510SE air compressor. It is Ultra Quiet and Oil-Free 5.5-Gallon Steel Tank Air Compressor. Its powerful motor produces 120 psi maximum pressure and delivers 3.10 CFM at 40 psi & 2.20 CFM at 90 psi of compressed air. This compressor produces only 60 dB of sound. It is also best for transportation because its two wheels and one handle make sure its easy transport to any place. See more on

I bought the California Air Tools CAT-1P1060S last summer and I have to say it does the job flawlessly. It's powerful although I still think these are quite noisy. Actually when I received my air compressor I didn't even know how to operate it properly. Luckily there is Google and I found this guide on how to use an air compressor which actually had some nice tips.

@Chamca33 what compressor did you finally settle for?
