Bigval, i read it and it is all good... you summed it up quite well
well i dont think it was oil or anything cause at school our compresses had wetness when we used it. unless theres a different type or something.

U guys are missing the entire concept. COMPRESSOR is the machine that builds COMPACTED AIR. Compressed tank hold the compacted air that came from the compressor. and compressed air is the RODUCT. Yes pbasil is right once u release all the air iAT ONCE it will build up condensation and will turn to a solid matter ( ice )and eventually will turn to liquid form. Compressor and compressed air are normally use to MOVE or LAUNCH OBJECT. eg paintball gun.

most likely a light oil, used to keep the seals lubed not only in the compressor its self, but also the tools used with compressed air, such as impact wrenches and cutter and pretty much all of them.

there are different ways to put the oil in the system too. you can have an inline resivoir,very popular in auto shops where the use air very often, or you can munually put a little oil in the tool before and after each use... and of course the oil resivoir thats on the compressor motor....

lol thats not what i said....i was talking about CO2 cartriges... they have liquid inside, same as the air in a can things, when you puncture it or spray it, it rapidly changes the liquid gas(CO2) into a gas at rapid speeds causeing massive temp drops and high pressure air to come out the hole.
go to a sporting goods store, buy a co2 cartige, put a glove on! and hold the co2 cartrige and punture the hole.... it will freeze to your glove....

CO2 and compressed air has different principles. Co2 is liquid air once the molecules of the CO2 breaks down it turns to GAS. perfect sample is c" can of air spray" unlike compressed air is compacted air but once it has been release at the sametime it will build CONDENSATION and will turn that air to solid (ice) and will eventually turn to liquid. Perfect example is a SCUBA TANK. fill it up with compressed air u can get it from the nearest paintball place. open the valve slowly and u will see no condensation but try opening the valve wider or for a period of time and u will see condesation. the sudden release of air changes the air molecules and solidifies it. however this changes it depends on the AMOUNT of AIR being released. and regarding the OIL u guys were talking about OIL is used to properly lube the O-RING. lubing the O-ring prevents the o-ring from drying and O-ring is used to prevent air of liquid from coming out. example is a WATER BLOCK.

Compressed air from an air compressor DOES have water in it. The air comes from where-ever the compressor is setup at and has humidity in it. Thats why compressor's have an "Air Dryer" to remove the humidity. If you shoot a stream of compressed air from your compressor into your computer case then you run the risk of just totally killing your mobo. Computers and water don't mix well. But if you have money to burn and don't care about screwing up your rig.....
