What is a Piston Air Compressor?

A reciprocating compressor or piston compressor is a positive-displacement compressor that uses pistons driven by a crankshaft to deliver gases at high pressure. A two-stage compressor includes an additional step where the air is compressed by a second, smaller piston to a higher pressure.
