Piston Compressors

There are two main categories of piston compressors… Economy and Quality.

PSSI do sell economy pistons for occasional use such as inflating tyres, but we always warn the economy compressors should be regarded as disposable.

This page shows a few of the quality piston compressors that we are happy to sell for more arduous duty.   All these compressors feature…

  • Cast iron cylinders – robust
  • Long stroke and slow running – longer life
  • 70% duty cycle (say 7 mins on, then 3 off)

These compressors are built in the UK and ideal for providing low-cost backup for a screw or vane compressor used in demanding applications where air is needed 24/7.
