German term or phrase: Kompressor, Verdichter
"Die benötigte Luftmenge wird entweder von einem Kompressor oder einem Verdichter erzeugt."

I've always translated Kompressor and Verdichter as "compressor". However, they appear to be different. Could someone tell me what the difference is? Thanks.

Thanks.

Explanation:

this is what Ernst suggests for Verdichter (Kompressor seems to be clear). In your sentence, fan seems to make sense.
Verdichter, Lüfter m (Verdichtung bis 0,1 kg/cm-2) / fan
Verdichter m (mit Verhältnis End- zu Ansaugdruck > 2) / compressor
Verdichter, Gebläse n (Verdichtungsverhältnis bis 3) / blower
Verdichter, Verflüssiger m / condenser, cond.
Verdichter m (Spinn) / condenser
Verdichter m (Verseilm) / compacting head
