Reciprocating Air Compressor
A reciprocating air compressor is a type of compressor that uses a piston to compress air. The compressed air is then stored in a storage tank. These compressors are typically used in industrial and commercial settings, where a steady flow of compressed air is needed to power tools and equipment.
The compression process in a reciprocating air compressor occurs in a cylinder, where a piston moves back and forth to compress the air. The compressed air is then cooled and filtered before it is stored in the storage tank.
Reciprocating compressors are available in single stage and two stage versions. Single stage compressors compress the air in one pass while two stage compressors compress it twice. Two stage compressors are more efficient than single stage ones and are suitable for high pressure applications.
Reciprocating air compressors are known for their durability and reliability. They are also relatively easy to maintain and repair. However, they can be relatively loud and may consume more energy than other types of compressors.
Some of the advantages of reciprocating air compressor are as follows:
Durability and reliability
Easy maintenance and repair
Suitable for various industries
Available in single and two stage versions
