Compressed Air

The Compressor is a machine that compresses air by reducing its volume and increasing its pressure. The compressor usually uses a pump run by an electric motor that will compress the air. The compressed air is produced by means of a piston and flows through a directional valve either to be stored in a receiver or used to power air tools and/or accessories. A pressure switch is used to turn the compressor ON and OFF and while in the ON position it will make the compressor start automatically when the air pressure is too low and stop it when it reaches the set pressure. A regulator and a gauge allow adjustment of the outlet flow of air.
