Water Lubricated Air Compressor

The overall mechanism of an air compressor is a piston or rotary element (e.g. rotary screw or vane) that allures air flow, which is compressed into a storage tank. Naturally, since the piston or rotary element needs to move consistently and smoothly because of this to work, it generally needs to be lubricated.

In a lubricated air compressor, there is lubricating oil which keeps the piston or rotary element running well without damaging the Water Lubricated Air Compressor system. The lubricant also helps to dissipate warmth and maintain air compression efficiency.

Oil-free air compressors also use a piston or rotary element, however they bypass the lubrication problem by coating the compression element with a pre-lubricating material like Teflon. Some oil-free compressors could also use water in place of essential oil for the lubricating and cooling process. These alternate materials secure the pump and invite the mechanism to move smoothly without the need for any oil-centered or synthetic lubrication.
