One of the most useful pieces of equipment in the industrial equipment world is the air compressor. The air compressor is a device which converts power into energy by compressing air and releasing it with force in a confined, directional area. The air can be released as needed in short bursts of power which can then be used for a range of different purposes. Air compressors are extremely versatile and useful which is why we carry a wide range of sizes and types of this category of rental equipment.

Air Compressor

An air compressor uses fuel, typically from a gasoline or diesel engine to compress and pressurize air. There are many different types of air compressors which can be classified in a number of different ways. For instance, the air compressor can be categorized based on:

  • what type of design and principle of operation it uses
  • the number of stages it employs
  • according to the pressure limits it uses
  • according to its capacity
  • according to the method of cooling that it uses

There are many different uses of air compressors. It is often used to power pneumatic tools such as paint sprayers or nail guns, or simply to fill and pressurize various types of chambers. In addition to powering tools one of the most commonly seen and readily understood uses of an air compressor is to inflate something such as a tire or other tube.

One of the benefits of this type of machinery is the ability to focus and control the power. There is typically a small degree of risk to surrounding surfaces and structures and the power itself is efficient and can be well directed. Another benefit is that air compressors require very little regular maintenance.
