A compressor is equipment that is used to rice the pressure of an air at specific
volume. Compressors are commonly employed in in pneumatic air system, engines, oil
extraction purpose and also domestic air cleaner. An intercooler is a mechanical system
used to cool a liquid between multi-stage heat enabling factors, usually a heat exchanger
in a gas compressor that removes excess heat. The compressor's efficiency is low due to
varying variable that has been impacted as, without breathing machine, inappropriate
intercooling, compressor rig terrible destination, and more dust absorption air. The
reciprocating air compressor output overall is difficult. Increase performance through
correct intercooling by intercooler in the two-stage reciprocating air compressor.
Additionally, the amount of heat discharge drawn from the intercooler
