Discover the Versatility of Piston Air Compressors with Air Kraft

Air Kraft offers a comprehensive selection of piston or reciprocating air compressors, both lubricated and oil-free, to meet various industrial needs. These compressors are available in multiple motor sizes and pressure ratings, ensuring the right fit for your application.

Why would I use a piston compressor?

A piston compressor, also known as a reciprocating compressor, is commonly used for applications that require high pressure and intermittent or fluctuating air demand. They offer the following advantages:

  1. High Pressure Capability: Piston compressors can generate high levels of pressure, making them suitable for tasks that require compressed air at elevated pressures.
  2. Versatility: They can be used for a wide range of applications, including pneumatic tools, small workshops, automotive repair, and DIY projects.
  3. Durability: Piston compressors are known for their robust construction and long lifespan, making them reliable and suitable for demanding environments.
  4. Affordability: They are often more affordable compared to other types of compressors, making them a cost-effective option for small to medium-sized operations.
  5. Easy Maintenance: Piston compressors have relatively simple designs, making maintenance and repairs straightforward, with readily available replacement parts.
  6. Efficient for Intermittent Use: They perform well in applications with intermittent air demand, as they can start and stop quickly, minimizing energy consumption during periods of inactivity.

Consider factors such as required pressure, duty cycle, noise level, and airflow requirements when determining whether a piston compressor is the right choice for your specific application.

Lubricated Piston Compressors

Our lubricated series includes:

  • The LE and LT models.
  • Ranging from 1.5 to 45 kW.
  • LB boosters up to 30 kW and 300 Bar.

These compressors are ideal for applications where a small amount of oil in the air is not a concern.
