A natural gas compressor increases the pressure of a gas by reducing its volume. The natural gas enters the cylinder through the intake valves, where it is compressed and forced out through discharge valves. A gas air compressor is one form of natural gas compressor that is used in a wide range of industrial applications where either high pressure or lower volumes of gas are required. Examples include:
QRNG Reciprocating Natural Gas Compressor
A reciprocating gas compressor uses crankshaft-driven pistons to provide compression. The thrust is provided by a positive displacement pump that moves the gas through the system and enhances the gas’s pressure and density. Benefits of reciprocating gas compressors include their ability to produce high power and high pressure compressed gas, as well as the absence of an oil carryover problem. Reciprocating compressors also generally require a lower initial investment than other compressor types.
