Piston compressors

Piston compressors

Piston compressors manufactured by EL-AV Compressors – durability, quality and reliability.

Piston compressor

Piston technology compressors are the most common type of compressor. Its operating principle is conversion of rotary motion to linear (reciprocating) motion of a piston moving within a cylinder. The downward stroke of the piston is when intake takes place, and its upward stroke is when compression takes place. What moves the piston is a motor, which may be either electric or fuel-powered. Piston compressors exist in many different types, sizes and applications. For example, a piston compressor may be oil-lubed or oil-free; it can have a single compression stage, suitable for work at standard pressure of up to 13 bar; or, two or even three stages, suitable for working pressure of 50 bar or more. A piston compressor can function on its own or as a booster, receiving air from another compressor at a certain pressure and boosting it.

EL-AV Compressors offers its customers piston compressors of the highest levels of workmanship and quality on the market. In addition, the company offers a wide range of compressor types for a variety of industries, from standard piston compressors to oil-less compressors and compressors tailor-made to customers’ needs.
