Two Stage Compressor

A compressor that achieves the design output pressure using two compression steps. The compressed-air output from the first stage of the compressor is directed to the intake of the second stage of the compressor, where the air is further compressed. Output pressures for two-stage compressors are typically in the range of 125 to 175 psig.

Compare to a single stage compressor.
