LEARNING HUB: COMPRESSED AIR
Welcome to the ‘Air Compressor University’. In this section of the website I will teach you everything I know about industrial air compressors.
These will mostly be general informative pages about air compressors, air compressor parts and everything air compressor related (dryers, filters, maintenance, etc).
If you are looking to buy an air compressor and looking for buying help, be sure to check out my air compressor buying section.
If your air compressor is having problems, read these Air Compressor University pages for general information, and be sure to ask your questions/problem in the Air Compressor Troubleshooting pages.
I have divided the information in this section into 4 main blocks:
* Air compressor types
An overview of the different kinds of air compressors. I mainly focus here on rotary screw compressors, reciprocating compressors and scroll compressors.
* Air compressor Parts
An overview of the main parts of the air compressors. I will discuss here the function and use of parts like pressure switches, oil filters, check valves, unloader valves, and a lot more.
* Compressor Uses
Some pages about different compressor uses: paintball compressors, dental compressors, scuba diving compressors, portable air compressors, and more..
* Compressed Air Systems and components
This part is not focused on the air compressor itself, but focuses on everything that comes after it: compressed air piping, air dryers, compressed air filters, and more..
Use the menu in the right column to navigate all the different topics. Some topics span multiple pages or are dived into sub-topics, so be sure to check them all out.
