Piston Compressors

ACB North offers a complete range of piston compressors from industry experts, Champion. Champion manufactures expert air solutions for small to medium applications, providing products that offer amazing reliability and performance, even in the most demanding conditions. The Champion brand is known for its energy efficiency and reliability, at a fair and competitive price.

Piston Operating Principle

One of the oldest and most common types of industrial compressor on the market, piston technologies are known for their reliable, strong, and long-lasting performance. Using a displacement principle to increase the pressure of gas, piston compressors work by intaking gas that then flows into the compression cylinder where it gets compressed by a piston driven in a reciprocating motion via a crankshaft. The enclosed volume of gas is then discharged.

The Champion Range

Champion offers a diverse range of compressors suited to a variety of workshop and industrial uses, including:

  • Single-cylinder single-stage with direct transmission for small power outputs suitable for semi-professional uses.
  • Two-cylinder, single-stage with belt transmission for use in workshops.
  • Two-cylinder, two-stage with belt transmission for industrial use.

The two stage model is preferred if you wish to guarantee lower working temperatures. This is thanks to a cooling manifold between the first and second compression stage and a higher air delivery.
