How Industrial Air Compressors Work

If you are thinking about buying an industrial air compressor to power tools and operate machinery in your factory or construction environment, then getting some knowledge from the experts at Air Center Inc. is a great place to start. Since you are dealing with a large, often expensive piece of machinery, it’s important to know what goes into a compressor and how you can make use of one.

How an Industrial Air Compressor Works
Similar to the way your car engine works, an industrial air compressor uses the technology of piston force to move and compress air inside the machine. Pistons that are powered by electricity, gas, or diesel fuel push down on air that enters the compressor system. This air is then stored in a pressurized tank underneath and can hold a large amount of compressed air, determined by its CFM or cubic feet per minute.
