Diaphragm compressors form a different group. Their diaphragm is actuated mechanically or hydraulically. The mechanical diaphragm compressors are used with a small flow and low pressure or as vacuum pumps. Hydraulic diaphragm compressors are used for high pressure applications.
Learn more about air compression and the different types of displacement compressors we know today. Here we’re talking about oil-lubricated and oil-free piston compressors.
Compressed air is all around us, but what is it exactly? Let us introduce you to the world of compressed air and the basic workings of a compressor.
