What is the difference between single stage and double stage air compressor?
The primary difference between single and two-stage air compressors is the number of times the air is compressed. Two-stage compressors generate high pressure and thus work better for heavy-duty applications, while single-stage models cost less and are suited for smaller jobs requiring less power. Within Porter-Cable Air Compressors, we carry 19 single stage and 1 double stage options.
What is the difference between oil lubricated and oil free air compressors?
Air compressor mechanism comprises a piston that draws in air. To retain the efficiency of the air compressor, the piston must be lubricated periodically. The compressors also come as oil-free, which means they are pre-lubricated with Teflon. Oil-lubricated compressors require more maintenance between the two types of air compressors, but they also last longer, punch more power, and make less noise. However, they are heavy and require regular maintenance. Within Porter-Cable Air Compressors, we carry 5 oil-lubricated and 15 oil free options.
