A reciprocating compressor or piston compressor is a positive-displacement compressor that uses pistons driven by a crankshaft to deliver gases at high pressure. The intake gas enters the suction manifold, then flows into the compression cylinder where it gets compressed by a piston driven in a reciprocating motion via a crankshaft, and is then discharged. Applications include oil refineries, gas pipelines, chemical plants, natural gas processing plants and refrigeration plants. 12 working gases are available in this model. The model is made for single cylinder (single or double acting) gas compressor. Multi stage reciprocating gas compressor is modeled. User can assign the number of stages and the acting type.
