The single stage, reciprocating compressors create
a low-pressure area in the pumping chamber when the
piston moves from the highest point of the stroke
to the lowest point. Gaseous product (at a higher
pressure in the tank) moves into the pumping chamber.
This volume of gas is then displaced when the piston
moves to the top of the stroke.
Equipped with high efficiency valves, ductile iron
pistons, self-adjusting piston rod seals and other
robust features, these compressors are designed to
provide maximum performance and reliability under
the most severe service conditions.
