Compressors move gases, including air, processes gases and waste gases, using a large increase in pressure. Blowers , by contrast, move gases using a moderate increase in pressure. Read More

Compressors are used in all industries. Applications range from propelling gases through pipelines to powering pneumatic tools. They are also important components of refrigeration and air conditioning systems.

There are two key considerations for specifiers:
- The suitability (reliability / efficiency) of the technology to the actual project requirements.
- The total life costs of the installation, including energy and maintenance costs.

Where air quality standards are paramount, such as in food manufacturing or semi-conductors, oil-free compressors are an option.

Variable speed drives control the speed of the compressor motor, potentially reducing energy consumption by a substantial amount.

Refrigeration and desiccant type dryers remove water vapour from the compressed gas.
