Piston Compressors

Piston Compressors

The reciprocating compressor users a piston which moves inside a cylinder to compress the air.

When the piston moves down air is drawn in, when the piston moves up the air is compressed.

Where can they be used?

Piston compressors are used a lot in workshops and small factories where the air demand is not too high and not continuous.

They start automatically when the pressure drops below a set point and stop when the pressure reaches its maximum set point.


  • Starts quickly
  • Can be left idle for a long time
  • Ideal if there are variations in the amount of air used
