Welcome to JustAnswer. I am online most nights and weekends a few hours.(US-Eastern)Please do not rate my answer until you are completely satisfied.

catmastertech :

All industries can use air compressors.

catmastertech :

I have not see them in Hospitals since most air used their is purified oxygen. (extra clean)

catmastertech :

Factories are the most common as the use air pressure to operate tools and machines.

catmastertech :

This could be anything from hand tools to presses or arms that lift or move parts.

catmastertech :

They often use air operated cylinders to open valves or gates to control the flow of product to the manufacturing process.

catmastertech :

I have seen sizes from a small three to five gallon tanks for home or shop use to as big as a truck to supply an aircraft hanger.
