According to NFPA 13, air compressors with a flow greater than 5.5 CFM at 10 psi require a tank and regulator-style air maintenance device with a bypass and restrictor (NFPA 13 184.108.40.206). C-Aire still recommends an air maintenance device for air compressors with an airflow of less than 5.5 CFM at 10 psi, except when the compressor has a U switch or digital pressure switch installed.
