Piston compressors

Piston compressors operate on the positive displacement principle.They can be used to compress almost all technical gases. They can generate particularly high compression pressures of up to 2000 bar.

Piston compressors are available both as single-cylinder and multi-cylinder compressors as well as single stage and multistage compressors. Multi-cylinder compressors are used for larger capacities, multistage piston compressors are used for higher pressures.
