A mechanical device used to compress air. An electric motor ( or a gas or diesel engine) is used to drive a pump which usually consists of a cylinder and a piston assembly.

The motor/pump that drives the air conditioning unit. It is responsible for pumping refrigerant throughout the system.
The main element in a central air conditioning system. It compresses the gaseous refrigerant.
A mechanical device that pressurizes a gas in order to turn it into a liquid, thereby allowing heat to be removed or added. A compressor is the main component of conventional heat pumps and air conditioners. In an air conditioning system, the compressor normally sits outside and has a large fan (to remove heat).
The compressor is the "engine" which drives the condensing unit. The condensing unit serves as a pump which compresses the gas in the high pressure (condensing) side of the cooling cycle and causes the refrigerant (Freon) to circulate.
the pump that circulates refrigerant from the indoor coil to the outdoor condensing unit and back again. It's called the heart of the system, an apt analogy.
This is the heart of an air conditioning or heat pump system. It is part of the outdoor unit and pumps refrigerant in order to meet the cooling requirements of the system.
An engine used to increase the pressure of natural gas so that it will flow more easily through a pipeline.
The part of the outdoor air conditioner or heat pump that compresses and pumps refrigerant to meet household cooling requirements.
A vapor pump that pumps vapor (refrigerant or air) from one pressure level to a higher pressure level.
Motorized equipment in a refrigeration (or air conditioning) system that circulates coolant through the system.
A device for taking a gas, most often air, and pumping it to take less space at a higher pressure. Typical shop compressors have a tank holding several gallons of air at 125-150 psi. Pneumatic tools use air instead of electricity to spin gears or hammer. Each tool is rated for volume and pressure of air needed. Too small a compressor will lose pressure and delay further use of the tool. Compressed air is also used for blowing for clean up and spraying paint and for applying pressure as for a grease gun. 2005-01-18
The Compressor is the most important piece of a heating or cooling system. Located in the outdoor unit, the compressor is responsible for pumping refrigerant throughout the system.
