Piston Compressor – A Reciprocating Air Compressor for Nashville, Knoxville, Hendersonville, Maynardville and Beyond

piston compressorA piston compressor, also called a reciprocating compressor, utilizes a piston, moving in a reciprocating motion inside of a cylinder, to compress air. These innovative machines create air pressure on both sides of the piston as it completes one stroke. And, multiple cylinders can be used within a machine to create higher pressures. Piston compressors have been widely used for centuries, and with their exceptional efficiency and steady air output, it’s easy to see why. Plus, a piston air compressor is known to have a longer lifetime than other compressor types.
