Components:

A typical piston in an air compressor consists of several key parts:

  • Piston Body: The main body of the piston is typically made of cast iron or aluminum for durability and heat resistance. It has a smooth, cylindrical shape that slides back and forth within the cylinder bore.
  • Piston Rings: These are one or more rings made of a springy material like steel or Teflon that fit around the piston’s outer circumference. The piston rings create a tight seal between the piston and the cylinder wall, preventing compressed air from leaking back into the crankcase during the compression stroke.
  • Piston Pin (Gudgeon Pin): This pin connects the piston to the connecting rod. It allows the piston to move vertically within the cylinder while maintaining its connection to the crankshaft for rotation.

Description

INGCO AC25508-SP-26, Air Compressor- Piston(AC25508-SP-26)

product details:

In an air compressor, the piston is a critical component responsible for compressing air and increasing its pressure. It’s the heart of the reciprocating (piston) type of air compressor, which is the most common type used for household and industrial applications.

Function:

The piston’s primary function is to move back and forth within a cylinder, drawing in air at atmospheric pressure and compressing it to a higher pressure. This compressed air is then stored in a tank for later use in powering pneumatic tools, inflating tires, or various other applications.

Components:

A typical piston in an air compressor consists of several key parts:

  • Piston Body: The main body of the piston is typically made of cast iron or aluminum for durability and heat resistance. It has a smooth, cylindrical shape that slides back and forth within the cylinder bore.
  • Piston Rings: These are one or more rings made of a springy material like steel or Teflon that fit around the piston’s outer circumference. The piston rings create a tight seal between the piston and the cylinder wall, preventing compressed air from leaking back into the crankcase during the compression stroke.
  • Piston Pin (Gudgeon Pin): This pin connects the piston to the connecting rod. It allows the piston to move vertically within the cylinder while maintaining its connection to the crankshaft for rotation.
  • Crown: The top part of the piston that is exposed directly to the combustion chamber (in gasoline-powered compressors) or compressed air (in electric compressors). The crown may have a specific design to improve heat transfer or efficiency.

Working Principle:

The piston operates within a cylinder in conjunction with other components like the crankshaft, connecting rod, and valves to achieve air compression. Here’s a simplified breakdown of the process:

  1. Intake Stroke: The piston moves down the cylinder bore, creating a vacuum within the cylinder. An intake valve opens, allowing atmospheric air to rush into the cylinder to fill the empty space.
  2. Compression Stroke: The piston moves back up the cylinder, closing the intake valve and trapping the air inside. As the piston continues its upward movement, the air gets compressed into a smaller volume, resulting in a significant increase in pressure.
  3. Discharge Stroke: Once the air reaches the desired pressure, a discharge valve opens, allowing the compressed air to flow out of the cylinder and into the storage tank.
  4. Repeat: The cycle of intake, compression, and discharge continues as long as the compressor motor is running, building up compressed air in the tank until it reaches its pressure limit, at which point the compressor automatically shuts off
