Reciprocating piston-type Compressors
Reciprocating piston-type compressors based on the well-known range of starting air compressors and are available in 2-stage air cooled design such as the WP226L or 2-stage water cooled design such as the WP400. Compared with screw-type compressors, these types are more suitable forshorter operation intervals due to their lower energy consumptionas they are start-stop controlled. The distinct advantages of piston compressors are the standardised parts and the similarity in terms of design with starting air compressors. If you choose your ship compressors carefully, your starting, control and working air compressorswill all have the same wearing parts.
