are used in all areas of industry where compressed air is required. These machines are made out of a frame, upon which the compressor
and a compressed air tank are mounted. The compressor can also be used as a double compressor. With double compressors, the second compressor can switch off upon demand. The piston compressor
has been one of the most common machines used to produce compressed air in the last few decades. The screw compressor
only recently became a competitor in this share of the market through increasing its efficiency.

In the industry, about half of all compressors are piston compressors
. The active principle is easy: a rotating movement, caused by a motor, is transformed into a back and forth movement compresses the air through the means of a connecting rod and a piston in the cylinder. The compressed air is then stored in the compressed air tank, which has a non-return valve. The gauge, as well as an automatic pressure monitor, then switches the compressor on when required, to compensate for any drops in air pressure. The compressor
is operated by an electric motor, and for mobile compressors
used on construction sites, a combustion engine is used.
