A compressor sucks in air circulating in the room, and using the pump, squeezes it into a smaller volume and stores it in a steel tank under pressure. As air is released to drive air tools or inflate tires and the pressure in the tank goes down, the pump is reactivated by a pressure sensor and switch, then it runs until it rebuilds pressure in the tank to a preset level.

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).
