Paradigm Reciprocating Compressor

Reciprocating Compressor (5, 7.5, 10, & 15hp)

Paradigm reciprocating compressors provide the advantages of a compressor coupled with less vibration and noise levels as low as 66 dBA. Loaded with features, these industrial air compressors deliver high performance and tremendous value. These two stage reciprocating compressors offer trouble-free service with maximum operating efficiency. Available as a tank or base mount, the paradigm reciprocating compressor is perfect for a wide variety of applications.


Key Features

  • Separate compressor and motor chambers with dedicated cooling circuits for cooler operation and longer life.
  • Oil site gauge for ease of monitoring and service.
  • Integrated heavy-duty air cooled aftercooler for up to 65% moisture removal.
  • Filter maintenance indicator for user-friendly monitoring. The graduated indicator monitors the compressor air filter. The position indicator progressively fills the window as air filter restriction increases and indicates the need for a filter change.
  • Industrial grade compressor with unique features including gasketless cylinder/head design, stainless steel valve disks and tapered roller main bearings for superior dependability.
  • Integral cylinder and head eliminating the possibility of blown head gaskets for leak-free, trouble-free operation.
  • Balanced aluminum alloy first stage piston(s) are weight matched to the cast iron second-stage piston(s) for proper balance and minimized vibration.
  • Lightweight, high-density, die-cast aluminum alloy connecting rods for minimal reciprocating weight. Precision-bored crankpin bearing and piston pin needle bearing are used to properly distributed bearing loads for longer bearing life than bushings.
  • Industrial grade, reliable, high-flow, low lift disc-type valves are made of corrosion resistant Swedish steel to ensure years of trouble free operation.
  • Tapered roller-type main bearings, providing full contact and support of the crankshaft, ensuring compressor durability and long-life.
