OIL-LUBRICATED AIR COMPRESSORS

The oldest and most common of all industrial compressors is the piston compressor. It is offered in single or double action versions, oil-lubricated or oil-free with several cylinders in various configurations. The V configuration is the most commonly used for small compressors, apart from very small compressors with vertical cylinders. On a large compress with double effect, large L-configuration compressors with vertical low pressure and horizontal high-pressure cylinders are the most common in dual action and have become the most common design.

Piston air compressors now represent nearly 80% of the overall sales in the world. AFLATEK piston compressors have become an indispensable tool for those of our customers who appreciate its easy installation, its management and in particular its reliability and low maintenance.
