Reciprocating Air Compressors
Best for use in larger facilities requiring compressors that can deliver medical air and gases, reciprocating medical air compressors are durable, higher volume, compressors. They typically come in two different types; Oil-less and Oil flooded. Oil-less reciprocating air compressors are used for delivery of medical air and gases, while oil flooded systems are used for instrument applications. Both versions are easily maintained and repaired, with oil flooded systems requiring more maintenance than oil-less compressors.
Reciprocating compressors can range from 5hp for a smaller stand-alone system, all the way up to 500hp systems built as duplex, triplex, etc. systems, it all depends on how many pumps you have and how much power is required. For use in Instrument air applications, oil-flooded systems can be a cost-effective alternative to other compressor types.
