What to Know About Air Compressors
Air compressors pressurize air by decreasing the volume or amount of space of air in an immediate atmosphere. These devices move air into a pressurized storage tank. That stored, pressurized air has thousands of uses. One major use is powering tools. Air compressors in Brampton can be categorized in different ways depending on the power supply needed and method of pressurizing air. Each compressor differs in design and performance, making them suitable for jobs big or small — from DIY projects to professional use.
- Gas-powered compressor
This is a powerful compressor that is sometimes portable. Do you have a job that requires compressed air far from a source of electricity? If your portable electric compressor doesn’t offer the punch that you need, a gas-powered compressor may be the best option.
- Piston compressor
One of the oldest designs on the market, tried and true, the piston compresses air through a crankshaft and its configuration allows this design to achieve very high pressures.
- Hydrovane compressor
The key design feature of this compressor consists of a vane located inside a cavity that rotates, creating pressurized air. These compressors are often chosen for their reliability and quiet operation.
- Rotary screw compressor
Often the first choice for operations requiring massive amounts of continuous high pressure, this compressor turns internal rotors that move air through the device while compressing that air.
