Reciprocating Compressors from Air Supply UK

Reciprocating air compressors, also known as piston air compressors, used to be the industry standard air compressor, no matter what size or pressure was required. They have been widely used for over 200 years but the emergence of new technologies and rotary compressors mean other types of compressor are now used for some applications. However, piston compressors still offer the perfect solution for a wide range of industries and are still the compressor of choice for many applications. 

Reciprocating air compressors, or piston compressors work as a positive displacement compression system which uses pistons to compress gas and deliver it at high pressure. They can be used for almost any application but the most popular applications include:

  • Automotive workshops 
  • Small air use 
  • Intermittent air usage 
  • High pressure applications 
  • Natural gas processing and delivery 
  • Chemical plants 
  • Oil refinery 
  • Agriculture 

Reciprocating air compressors are considered to be the most energy efficient type of compressor for most applications which makes them a popular choice across a range of applications. 

The benefits of a reciprocating air compressor include: 

  • High pressure and power 
  • Low maintenance costs 
  • Energy efficient 
  • Longer lifespan 
  • Compact design 

At Air Supply, we have been selling reciprocating air compressors since 1995 so we have the expertise and knowledge to ensure the right air compressor is specified for your application and to maintain your air compressor.
