Air compressors are devices that are used to consolidate air inside a chamber or a tank. In that event where one holds their breath in their lungs is fairly the same way air compressors work. When an air compressor pulls sucks air in a chamber, the volume of air goes down and the air pressure goes up. The compressed air is then released through a hose in a steady release form.
Steadily, the air pressure inside an air compressor will continues to rise until it reaches a set limit. The type and size of an air compressor will determine the pressure limit of an air compressor, industrial and small air compressors will not have the same air pressure holding capabilities. From floatation devices, blowing dust and debris off and out power tools air compressors have a variety of uses. Apart from being available in different sizes , air compressors come with some versatility and are surprisingly long lasting, if one gets a good model and gives it the proper care it could give service for a lifetime.
Electric powered tools are more popular but what people might fail to realize is that pneumatic powered tools have with them some benefits too . Pneumatically powered tools are more brawny than those powered by electricity tools, they pack more torque and higher RPM for quick pace work and rapid firing. Compared to electricity powered tools , pneumatically powered tools are more environmental friendly as there is no toxic battery waste .
Air compressors are of two types, electric air compressors and gas compressors, in each of the types they exist with some variations. Some air compressors are big and stationery and have little options when it comes to portability while some are small and can be moved from one place to another without much stress. The power an air compressor has coincides with the size of the compressor , therefore a large air compressor will have more power compared to a small, portable air compressor
Large air compressors are better suited for industrial more so because they can be used by more than one person at one time. Air compressors are either single stage motors or two stage motors and the two differ by the fact that a two stage motor can change speeds of working when handling constant and rigorous activities, one can increase the working rates if one wishes to. There are specific types of air compressors that require oil lubrication, this brings with it the need for constant oil change , the lubricated air compressors also require to be operated on surfaces that are flat , they release a mist of oil into the air and this makes them not well suited for painting jobs. Oil lubricated air compressors are more preferred because they last longer and run quietly compared to other types but at the same time , they are limited to some applications.
