Reciprocating Compressor [2011-01-05]


A Reciprocating Compressor is a machine to use an internal mechanism capable of compressing a positive displacement gas. These machines usually consist of a crankshaft, piston mounted in a cylinder closed at the intake and exhaust. The compressor works for the gas in the cylinder, compress it and send it in a storage tank or supply line. This cycle is repeated continuously produce a constant supply of compressed gas. The piston compressor is usually electric motor or of different sizes and models for use in a variety of industrial and consumer applications.

The term refers to any repeated side to side or up and down, and remain valid for the cycle is repeated next piston compressors. positive displacement is the process of acquiring a quantity of a liquid or a gas and moves or pushes an outlet or discharge. A piston type
Reciprocating Compressor has an organization of gas through a throttle valve in the piston down stroke and compress at the site above. When the piston reaches the top of the set time, a valve opens to the left in the compressed gas in the cylinder head. This process is repeated continuously, resulting in a constant supply of compressed gas.

Piston compressors are usually powered by electric motors or gasoline and diesel. Installed small "do it yourself (DIY) versions and commercial units in factories or plants are usually in electric mode, while those for mobile use in the engine. Large industrial compressors are designed to operate more cylinders, and often ability to use any number of these bottles, according to demand. Small national models usually have a single cylinder, air supply in a storage tank or directly into the feeding tube.

These machines are used to compress include a variety of gases, air, hydrogen, oxygen, refrigerant and oil. The gas can be compressed directly to another part of the process is introduced into a storage container for later use. Air compressors are typically used to drive pneumatic tools and equipment, while other compressed gases in industrial processes, such as air conditioning, chemical production and petroleum refining. The reciprocating compressor is generally used when the compression ratio requires very low flows. The use of a Piston Compressor is generally for applications where gas has involved very little moisture is limited.
