An air compressor is a device that converts power (using an electric motor, diesel or gasoline engine, etc.) into potential energy stored in pressurized air (i.e., compressed air). By one of several methods, an air compressor forces more and more air into a storage tank, increasing the pressure. When tank pressure reaches, its engineered upper limit the air compressor shuts off.
<h3>Compressors can be classified according to the pressure delivered:</h3>
<li>Low-pressure air compressors (LPACs), which have a discharge pressure of 150 psi or less</li>
<li>Medium-pressure compressors which have a discharge pressure of 151 psi to 1,000 psi</li>
<li>High-pressure air compressors (HPACs), which have a discharge pressure above 1,000 psi</li>
<h3>They can also be classified according to the design and principle of operation:</h3>
<li>Single-Stage Reciprocating Compressor</li>
<li>Two-Stage Reciprocating Compressor</li>
A scissor lift is a type of material handling tool that is usually moved vertically. The mechanism to achieve this is the use of linked, folding supports in a criss-cross “X” pattern, known as scissor mechanism.
Operators and site managers at companies large and small take on jobs that can be handled more efficiently and safely with a mechanical scissor lift.
