Air compressors have been a key feature of the mechanical electronics industry over the past 100 years. They are now an essential feature of every household or even commercial premises as being incorporated in systems such as air conditioners, refrigerators, or even your bike.
The popularity of conveyable air compressors is based on the fact that the air is a flexible natural resource, convenient, clean, and safe that is indispensable in different applications.

It consists of a device that modifies the state of the energy of gas to kinetic energy by pressurizing and compressing the following air where the air is released in sudden jets. Air can also be stored in a tank compressor wherein the method is easier to manage.
Due to its portability, many people make use of this device to fill the air in their vehicle tires such as cars whenever a requirement arises. The most significant part of the compressor is compressed air filters that eradicate the contaminants from the air after being subjected to the compression process.
The compressor basically is of three kinds such as reciprocating, rotary, and centrifugal. They may be further diverted to categories such as packaged or unpackaged, one or more stages, air-cooled or water cooled and lubricated or unlubricated categories.
The piston-type air compressors are either single or double. In the single step, it has one or two cylinders that force air directly into the storage tank while the two-stage compressors use more than one cylinder for the same process. Most of the single-stage processors have a good capacity to undertake the process. The two-stage processors are primarily used in industrial applications where large applications definitely require high pressure.
