How to use a Diesel driven piston air compressor

Powered by a diesel engine, a diesel driven piston air compressor employs a piston operating above the crankshaft to compact air inside a sealed chamber. As the crankshaft turns, the force of the piston compresses air molecules together, increasing pressure buildup in the chamber.

The power for the air compressor comes from the diesel engine, which drives the piston that compresses the air. When air is sucked into the chamber, the piston squeezes it and pushes it out of to the air tank with considerable pressure.

When the air tank accumulates enough air pressure, the pressure switch will flick off the compressor; no longer needing to work. The tank then acts as a source of energy that can be used for driving tools or to pump up tires.

Get your compressor humming along by starting up the engine and letting it settle for a few. Next, go ahead and flip the switch to the “on” setting to trigger activation of the device. Now, it will gradually pull oxygen in the container and gradually build up pressure.

Once it’s pumped up to the requested level, switch off the compressor simply by switching it to “off”. Then the air tank can supply energy to mechanical tools or be used to blow up tires. Refilling the tank is simple: just turn on the compressor and let it run until it is refilled.
