Providing High-Pressure Reciprocating Compressors for All Your Needs

High-pressure reciprocating compressors are pneumatic devices that convert power into potential energy stored in pressurized air. This output can then be converted into kinetic energy, which is later harnessed to control a range of tools. Furthermore, these devices can be compared to combustion engines. Most models have a pump cylinder, piston, and crankshaft so they can function properly.

How High-Pressure Reciprocating Compressors Work

Unlike its other counterparts, high-pressure reciprocating compressors are machines that suck air into a chamber. These devices compress the gas using a reciprocating piston. The substance then flows into the cylinder through a suction valve after passing through a filter.

Afterward, the air is compressed using a crankshaft and piston. Once this process is done, the air leaves through a discharge valve before being stored in a tank for later use. In particular, high-pressure reciprocating compressors can supply a consistent pressure of up to 6,000 pounds per square inch (psi). Due to the large amounts of pressure they produce, these devices are relatively bulky and heavy because of the different components they require. This means they are best suited for plants with more floor space to spare.

What Are the Applications of High-Pressure Reciprocating Compressors?

High-pressure reciprocating compressors have a range of uses across different industries. These devices are essential for companies to provide different products and services to their clients. Some of their more common applications include:

Production of Breathable Air

Top-quality, breathable compressed air is essential for scuba divers and firefighters. People in these professions require gas to keep themselves safe while doing their job. Since humans can’t breathe underwater, divers fill their tanks with oxygen using air compressor systems. The same thing is done by firefighters because it’s harmful for them to inhale air near an open fire. Most tanks are filled at roughly 3,000 psi, which is why high-pressure systems are better for this task.

PET Bottle Blowing

Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles are made from a kind of polyester extruded or molded to produce different plastic containers. This material is an excellent choice for packaging because of its chemical resistance, strength-to-weight ratio, low-cost production fees, and shatterproof properties. However, one would need a high-pressure reciprocating compressor to create them.

These devices accurately control the flow of air to shape the melted substance into the desired shape. They are often required to produce at least more than 650 psi to help make intricate designs.

Nitrogen Boosting

There are numerous uses for nitrogen, and some of these are laser cutting, gas inerting, oilwell gas injection, pipeline purging, food processing, and gas-assist injection molding. However, many companies utilize high-pressure reciprocating compressors for all these applications to ensure high performance, maximum efficiency, and extreme reliability. The psi a corporation needs would depend on what they’re utilizing the device for.
