Oil Lubricated for Air Compressors


Air compressors are used to store pressurized air which is obtained by converting the power obtained from a gasoline engine, diesel,etc.. into potential energy. There are different ways in which the air compression can be done. The air compressor gets turned off if the pressure inside the tank exceeds the desired limit. The kinetic energy of the stored air is used for a lot of applications like supplying high-pressure clean air for filling gas cylinders. This can be done by releasing the clean air via a small nozzle.

Air compressor pumps come in two types: oil Lubricated and oil-less.The oil lubricated air compressors last for more time, less loud, cheaper as compared to oil-less pumps. These pumps provide equally good air quality compared to the oil-less systems. This article will guide you on how to choose an oil Lubricated for Air compressor and also a suitable Air compressor.

Air Compressor for Industrial use

Industrial air compressors are different from the standard air compressors used at homes. If you are not familiar with the capability and capacity of an industrial air compressor, using then in the Industry will be very difficult.


This is a case were “Size truly does matter”. Why? Well, Industrial air compressors are considerably bigger than the ones used at home, the tank which receives the air is bigger, in order to increase the capacity. Also, in order to provide a greater power, the engine is too considerably bigger than the standard air compressors. These two factors allow the industrial air compressor to run much longer at full power. Continue reading “Air Compressor for Industrial use”
