Piston Air Compressors or Reciprocating air compressors are ideally suited to variable air demand in low to medium volumes. For many years they provided a safe, reliable, economic way to power many different applications. They are robust and functional, can be stationary or mobile, and have low maintenance costs.
At Air Tools WA we supply a range of piston air compressors including:
– Black Cat oil lubricated – Electric
– Akko industrial oil lubricated – Electric, Petrol & Diesel
– Atlas Copco oil lubricated – Electric
– Atlas Copco oil free – Electric
– SP Air trade oil lubricated – Electric
Reciprocating air compressors are either direct driven from the motor or belt driven via pulleys from the motor.
Since 2002 we have sold thousands of piston air compressors with many customers so happy that they buy again and again. This is because we make sure that you are getting the best possible value for money and that the compressor you choose is matched to your requirements.
We cater for all type of trades and industries. Including tradies needing small, mobile piston compressors for running nail guns and ait tools, trucking companies needing high pressure compressors to pump truck tyres, farmers wanting compressed air in the middle of the paddock and concrete batch plants running from our piston air compressors.
What to consider when buying a reciprocating compressor:
– Operating pressure
– Air consumption of the tools/appliances being operated
– Is mobility a factor?
– What drive system is required, electric, petrol, diesel?
– What are the space, weight requirements?
– How do piston air compressors work?
Reciprocating piston air compressors are the original form of air compressor. They work by sucking air into a cylinder during the piston downstroke, then on the upstroke the air intake valves close and the piston compresses the air in the cylinder and discharges it into a storage vessel. The compressor pump may have single or multiple cylinders and may have single or multiple stage of compressions.
