It's a compressor.. you can convert an A/C compressor to an air compressor. In fact, you don't really have to do much more than somehow make sure that the compressor gets enough lubricating oil and that the intake air is filtered to prevent dust and all other crap from entering the compressor. Ok, some wiring, a few switches etc. etc., but it's not THAT hard to do anyways. An A/C compressor will produce serious amounts of compressed air compared to the flimsy, noisy and expensive 12V electric compressors (like Viair or ARB).
