These types of compressors come in all sizes, from small and portable to large and industrial compressors. Some are powered by electricity, and others with an internal combustion engine.

I was all powered up and fully charged with air pressure like normal. Everything seemed just fine. I heard the buzz of electric saws and saw the normal saw dust flying around. Then, all of a sudden, and without any warning, my breath was taken away from me in a gush! I thought I was going to die. John had accidentally set his circular saw down on my hose and cut into it. It alarmed me at first, but before long John had me all fixed up and back to work we went. Ah, such is the life of a portable air compressor.

Often they are louder than an oil lubed compressor, but the air delivered through one of these pumps is of a better quality. They are found for home use, and are great because they are low maintenance and start up quick in cold weather.

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.

The oil is used for lubrication of moving parts of the compressor, but it also has some side effects. For example, traces of oil can be found in the tubes that deliver air to your airbrush tool, so it can be mixed with paint. This problem is more pronounced if the compressor is older. One possible solution is to purchase an oil free air compressor.

This falls under the positive displacement compressors, which you can find in fractional to very high horsepower ranges. The positive displacement air compressor works by filling an air chamber with air and reducing the chamber volume.
