A compressor is a mechanical device that lowers a gas’s volume while raising its pressure. One particular kind of gas compressor is an air compressor.
Pumps and compressors have characteristics in that both raise the pressure on a fluid and can move it via a pipe. The primary difference is that a compressor works to change a fluid’s density or volume, which is typically only possible with gases. Compressors are frequently employed for gases because liquids cannot be compressed as much as gases can. A pump’s primary function is to pressurize and move liquids.
What is an air compressor?
A pneumatic device that transfers power (through an electric motor, diesel or gasoline engine, etc.) into potential energy stored in pressured air is known as an air compressor (i.e., compressed air). An air compressor, using one of several methods, forces more and more air into a storage tank, increasing the pressure. When the tank’s pressure reaches its designed maximum, the air compressor shuts down. The compressed air is then stored in the tank until it is needed.
As the compressed air is released and the tank depressurizes, the kinetic energy generated by the compressed air can be used for a variety of purposes such as pneumatic tools. When the tank pressure reaches its minimum, the air compressor restarts and re-pressurizes the tank. An air compressor differs from a pump in that it can function with any gas or air, whereas pumps only work with liquids.
