Reciprocating compressors

Ideal for fluctuating air demand

The optimal duty cycle for reciprocating compressors is between 60 and 70 %. As such, they're the best choice for high-fluctuation operation with load peaks – especially for trades, workshops and small industry.

When used as boosters, reciprocating compressors can augment existing system pressure, raising it to 45 bar in specific locations.
