A noise suppressor/silencer/moderator (a different name for the same thing) is designed to reduce the sound of a pellet being discharged.

An air stripper is designed to strip away turbulent air from the path of the pellet, and does little or nothing to quieten down the sound of the gun being fired. In fact most of the time it makes the gun louder.

So in short, one is to silence your gun and the other is help with accuracy.
