FSC Reciprocating Air Compressors

Reciprocating air compressors, also known as piston compressors, are an economical compressor system ideal for intermittent duty cycles. At FS-Curtis, we carry oil-lubricated, oil-free, and gas-driven reciprocating compressor models. Our designs range from the small .75HP to a larger industrial model that goes up to 30HP. When it comes to selecting one for your operation, it depends on your specific needs and requirements.

Here are some reasons why you should consider getting a reciprocating air compressor:

Despite these advantages, it’s important to be aware of any reciprocating air compressor limitations.

Ultimately, you should pick a compressor based on application, budget, space, required pressure and volume, and long-term operation plans. All FS-Curtis reciprocating compressors are ideal with their versability, reliability, and durability. Consult an FS-Curtis expert so that we can assess your needs and see if a reciprocating compressor is right for you and if so, which one is most suitable for your application.
