Intake filter also known as air filter is used to filter out the contaminants from the air. Air compressor converts the mechanical energy of an electric or combustion motor into the potential energy of compressed air. Electric motor transforms electrical energy into mechanical energy. It is used to drive the air compressor.

The compressed air coming from the compressor is stored in the air receiver. The purpose of air receiver is to smooth the pulsating flow from the compressor. It also helps the air to cool and condense the moisture present. Air drying system can be adsorption type, absorption type, refrigeration type, or the type that uses semi permeable membranes. Also an inline filter is provided to remove any contaminant particles present.

Lubrication of moving parts of pneumatic cylinder and valves is very essential in pneumatic system. For this purpose compressed air lubricators are used ahead of pneumatic equipment. Control valves are used to regulate, control and monitor for control of direction flow, pressure etc.
