Functions of the Piston:

  1. Intake Stroke: During this stroke, the piston moves down the cylinder. The inlet valve opens, allowing fresh air to enter the cylinder below the piston. The piston rings ensure a tight seal to prevent compressed air from escaping upwards.
  2. Compression Stroke: As the piston moves back up the cylinder, the inlet valve closes, trapping the air inside. The piston compresses this air, increasing its pressure. The piston rings again play a crucial role in maintaining a seal and preventing air leakage back down into the crankcase.
  3. Repeat: The cycle of intake, compression, discharge (covered by the discharge valve), and repeat continues as long as the compressor is running.

Description

INGCO S-AC-P-AC755001, Air Compressor- Piston(S-AC-P-AC755001)

product details:

In a piston air compressor, the piston is a critical component responsible for drawing in air and compressing it to a higher pressure. Here’s a detailed breakdown of its characteristics and functions:

Components of a Piston:

  • Piston Body: This is the main cylindrical body of the piston, typically made from cast iron, aluminum, or composite materials. It needs to be strong, lightweight, and have good wear resistance.
  • Piston Rings: These are grooved rings made from cast iron or Teflon that fit snugly into grooves machined around the piston circumference. They create a tight seal between the piston and the cylinder wall, preventing air leakage during the compression stroke. Different types of piston rings may be used depending on the application and lubrication method (oil-lubricated or oil-free).
  • Piston Crown: The top flat surface of the piston that directly contacts the compressed air within the cylinder.
  • Piston Skirt: The lower portion of the piston that extends below the piston rings and slides within the cylinder. It helps maintain proper piston alignment and reduce friction.
  • Piston Pin (Gudgeon Pin): A cylindrical metal pin that connects the piston to the connecting rod. It allows the piston to move reciprocally within the cylinder while transmitting the force from the connecting rod.

Functions of the Piston:

  1. Intake Stroke: During this stroke, the piston moves down the cylinder. The inlet valve opens, allowing fresh air to enter the cylinder below the piston. The piston rings ensure a tight seal to prevent compressed air from escaping upwards.
  2. Compression Stroke: As the piston moves back up the cylinder, the inlet valve closes, trapping the air inside. The piston compresses this air, increasing its pressure. The piston rings again play a crucial role in maintaining a seal and preventing air leakage back down into the crankcase.
