Piston Air Compressors & Vacuum Pumps
A piston air compressor or reciprocating compressor uses a crankshaft-driven piston and cylinder to compress air, with pressures up to 175 PSI, in some cases. One popular model is the 12V air compressor, with a maximum of 100 PSI, used for automobile and machinery applications. A screw compressor uses a rotary screw instead of a piston to compress air, and is uses for high-pressure industrial applications, such as in jackhammers. We have piston air compressor/vacuum pump combination models as well. Zoro also has a great selection of diaphragm compressor vacuum pumps and rotary vane compressor vacuum pumps too.
