These compressors are well known for quality craftsmanship. Only the best technology and highest quality materials are used to build these compressors making them extremely reliable. Iwata compressors are powerful, compact, remarkably quiet yet affordable. These compressors are ready to be used in your home, garage or studio without taking up much space or raising any ruckus. With oil-less piston motors (excluding the Hammerhead and Great White) no maintenance is required.
Iwata makes it convenient to get started with their compressors because they are sold complete with fittings, filters, air hoses and adapters to fit any airbrush.

Look for compressors with automatic shut-off. (What Iwata refers to as “Smart Jet Technology.”) These models turn of automatically when not in use. Which provides:
· Less heat-related moisture build-up
· Produces full-capacity air on demand
· Reduces running time
· Less motor wear means longer compressor life
· Inherently quieter in public environments


neo air

Iwata Neo Air Mini Compressor IS-30

Expert Review: The Neo Air compressor is conveniently light weight and small in size but with it’s tiny size comes limitations. It’s really only good for very small applications of paint or makeup and to be used for shot periods of time. So if your needing something just for a few bridal makeup gigs here and there you have some other use for something portable and aren’t planning any heavy use, this could be a good purchase. Otherwise, don’t bother with this one. Price $99.

ninjaJet

Iwata Ninja Jet Compressor IS-35

Expert Review: The Ninja Jet is a fun looking little compressor and a bit more useful than the Neo (although not as lightweight.) It’s of quality build and the rugged case and slick bar handle make it easy to toss around without much concern for damage. It’s also pretty stripped down. No gauge, no moisture trap and no automatic shut-off.

silver
Iwata Silver Jet Compressor

IS-50

Expert Review: A favorite in the makeup industry, the Silver Jet fills the needs of many low pressure airbrush users. It looks quite pleasant on the table top at home or in a professional atmosphere with its shimmering stainless steel finish and also doesn’t take up much of a footprint. The built in gauge is easy to read and the included pistol grip moisture trap is a nice touch. You can find similar compressors for less but the Silver Jet still proves to be a worth while purchase. Price $169.

Sprint Jet no hose.jpg
Iwata Sprint Jet Compressor

IS-800

Expert Review: The Sprint Jet is a solid compressor. It’s quite and reliable. It has a nice gauge and an effective moisture trap. The handle flips up and folds down nicely. It’s a good compressor. However, in this day in age, paying over $200 for an airbrush compressor without automatic shut-off is just plain coo coo for cocoa puffs.

Smart Jet CompressorIwata Smart Jet Compressor

IS-850

Expert Review: The Smart Jet is one of Iwata’s longtime best selling airbrush compressors. Is has a super fast automatic shut-off feature that once you’ve had you will not want to live without. It also has this two hose cooling system where the air goes through a coil hose before hitting the moisture trap. Not sure how effective it is but a cool idea none the less. This popular model also has a very annoying design flaw. There is no regulator on the compressor. Instead there is a bleeder valve on the bottom of the moisture trap that you can open up to regulate the airflow. But guess what? When you open up the bleeder valve the automatic shut-off stops working. Price Range $250 to $275.

Smart Jet Pro (1).jpg
Iwata Smart Jet Pro Compressor

IS-875

Expert Review: Now we’re getting into what the pros use. This model is widely used among body painters and other traveling artists because it’s compact enough to fit into an overhead bin and protected by a sturdy metal case. The outer case is not the only improvement you get when upgrading from the Smart Jet to the Smart Jet Pro; that annoying bleeder valve issue the Smart Jet has is solved here with a built in regulator. ? Price Range $350 to $400.

Power Jet Lite wAB.jpg

Iwata Power Jet Lite Compressor

IS-950

Expert Review: Strictly for the heavy hitters, the Power Jet series is built to fulfill the needs of the professional artist. With 5000 hours of service you’ll most likely only need to replace it every 10 years or so. This model doesn’t have a tank so of the three, I am least likely to recommend the Power Jet Lite. However, if you need something powerful and as compact as possible it may be the right choice for you. Price Range $350 to $400.
Design: Quality: Cost to Performance Ratio:

Featuring the powerful twin-pump, 1/6 Hp motor, the Power Jet Lite compressor is equipped with a pressure regulator for precise adjustment of airflow. Built with Iwata’s Smart Technology, it automatically shuts off when not in use.

Like all Iwata Studio Series compressors, the Power Jet Lite comes complete with an air hose and adapters so it can hook up to any brand of airbrush.

iwata-smart-jet-plus-tubular-air-compressor-6.jpg
Iwata Smart Jet Plus Tubular Compressor

Expert Review: Iwata takes compressor technology to the next level with the Smart Jet Plus. That tubular handle wrapped around the compressor is actually a .5 liter air tank! This design adds less weight and is more compact than the usual air tank. The downside to this model is the decimal level. It is surprising load! Much loader than any of the aforementioned compressors Price $370.17.

Expert Review: The Iwata Power Jet Plus is a powerhouse of a compressor. It produces 1.4 CFM which is enough to to run a mini spray gun or several airbrushes at the same time. Unfortunately it’s also even louder than the Smart Jet Plus so if noise is an issue for you revert back to the original Power Jet. With its built in spray-gun/airbrush holder his model is ideal for the mural artist who needs something powerful yet easy to tote around. Price $437.58.
