Reciprocating Air Compressors
Reciprocating air compressors are typically meant for intermittent use when smaller, noncontinuous amounts of compressed air is needed. Reciprocating compressors deliver high-pressure gasses using a piston and crankshaft system, where air or some other gas is brought in through the suction manifold into the compression cylinder where the piston compresses and then discharges the gas. It is a popular air compressor choice in a wide variety of industries, including oil and gas, bottling and refrigeration, small business, auto body and tire shops, and construction sites.
Reciprocating air compressors are engineered to produce more compressed air at a lower horsepower, therefore, increasing energy efficiencies and lowering operating costs. When reliability is essential, C.H. Reed can deliver you the right reciprocating compressor to meet and exceed your industrial needs.
Types of Industrial Reciprocating Air Compressor
At C.H. Reed, we pride ourselves on offering the highest quality reciprocating air compressors on the market. We offer two major brands of reciprocating air compressor for our applications:
- Quincy Reciprocating Air Compressors: The Quincy Reciprocating Air Compressor is a highly dependable and effective positive displacement compressor that may either be a single-stage compressor — drawing the air in and compressing it with a single piston stroke before sending it to a storage tank — or a two-stage compressor, where a second, smaller piston compresses the air again after the first compression.
- FS-Curtis Reciprocating Air Compressors: FS-Curtis Reciprocating Air Compressors are rugged reciprocating compressors with robust construction and enhanced features to handle more challenging air compression environments.
Benefits of an FS-Curtis or Quincy Reciprocating Air Compressors
Premium, pressure-lubricated piston air compressors can deliver pressures as high as 175 PSI. Sturdy, cast-iron construction means these compressors are well-suited for the most demanding industrial conditions, extremely reliable, and easily maintained and serviced.
