Heavy Duty, Cast iron, Low speed Piston Compressors. Specifically designed and engineered to be durable, reliable & long lasting. Our aim is to provide a quality product that can serve the needs of any industrial, motor trade or agricultural user.
Proven reliability: We pride ourselves on the reliability of our compressors, some of our customers have had their machine for well over 20 years.
Piston compressors are versatile and durable, being able to handle a wide range of air volumes and pressures, whilst the robust construction can allow for arduous operation in very demanding environments when correctly sized and operated. Piston compressors are capable of being energy efficient, a key advantage is the use of a constant speed control valve. Unlike rotary compressors a piston compressor can work for only one hour a day, if that is all that is required. Reducing energy wastage by not having to reach an optimum working temperature.
The Dual control option that we offer allows the compressor to be changed from automatic stop/start control to continuous run. For example, if you need to use the compressor continuously for an extended period of time, you can change over to continuous run via a manual valve. This will reduce the amount of stop/starts via the pressure switch & motor because the compressor will offload via a constant speed control valve instead. The constant speed control valve opens the inlet valves so the machine will run off load, therefore reducing energy costs & reducing the wear on the pressure switch & motor.
