Ingersoll Rand, Chicago Pneumatic, RolAir, Jenny (Emglo) and Campbell Hausfeld are some of the most popular compressor brands. Many of their parts can be interchangeable, such as check valves and filters. Most parts however will be specifically designed for that air compressor. In the sections below you will find exploded diagrams of some of the most popular compressor parts, and how they may vary depending on the manufacturer.

Piston Air Compressors

A piston compressor (also known as a reciprocating compressor) uses pistons driven by a crankshaft to deliver air at high pressure. The images with the breakdowns below display the most prominent components of the compressors. The image on the left is a standard stationary compressor (Ingersoll-Rand SS5L5), while the image on the right is of a (RolAir) wheelbarrow compressor designed for portability on the jobsite.

Rotary Screw Air Compressors

A rotary screw is a compressor which utilizes two intermeshing helical rotors to trap a volume of air, then compress it to a higher pressure. Rotary screw compressors can be run at lower temperatures, and for 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. These compressors are all stationary, and generally have a specific air piping system that runs through the warehouse, industrial plant or shop in which it is located. Many local shops that we have seen also use regular air hose for its flexibility and mobility.
