An Air compressor pump is indeed indispensable in the highly industrial world where many machines come and change the way production and work is done. Almost all of these machines go through a series of evolution to attend to the changing needs of many industries.
All reciprocating air compressors throw out some oil with the air they compress. When the tank reaches its designed pressure limit, a switch will interrupt electrical power to the motor. Simultaneously, a certain amount of oily air will be released into the shop environment. You may see oil collecting on the wall behind the compressor and on the pump and compressor as well over time. This is not cause for alarm but periodic cleaning may be needed.
A rotary vane air compressor uses a rotor and a number of blades in radial slots in the rotor. I do not fully understand how this works, but it has something to do with the rotor turning and the blades sliding in and out of their slots as they keep contact with the housing wall. This somehow creates decreasing volume.
