What is an Air Compressor?

Air compressors are a common sight in many garages, workshops and industrial environments nowadays, due to their key role in streamlining work that would have previously been manual and labour intensive. Air Compressors make jobs like heavy lifting, grinding and sanding quicker and easier, and since they don’t require electricity, they are a versatile addition to many businesses.

An Air Compressor works by creating a pressurised volume of air in a container that in turn, when released, creates energy that can be used to power a whole range of tools. 

What is  an Air Compressor used for? 

Air Compressors are popular in many industrial environments, like garages, workshops, factories and more, common uses for Air Compressors include tyre inflation, spray painting, nail gun operation, drilling, grinding and sanding. The two main types of Air Compressor on the market are the Direct Drive and the Belt Drive varieties. Direct drive compressors have a smaller tank size and air output and the require less energy during work because the crankshaft attaches directly to the motor. They are often a lot cheaper than their belt drive equivalent.  However, for garage and workshops who require more power, and a bigger air output the Belt Drive Compressor would be a more suitable choice.
