Mid-Tech Air Compressors sell, service and repair piston, or reciprocating compressors – both oil-lubricated and oil-free – to perform in any environment, for any industry or application. We have a range of more than twenty CompAir models available. CompAir V-Major and V-Compact piston compressors have the versatility to meet a wide range of applications. The CompAir V-Major is a slow speed, double acting, water cooled design. It can be lubricated or oil-free, with pressures from 1.5 to 20.5 bar g, and power from 90 to 315 kW.

Oil free cylinders are necessary when the compressed air must be completely free of any trace of oil. The compressor rods have non-lubricated packings. The polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) piston rings are self-lubricating, operating in corrosive-resisting cylinder liners. PTFE rings are more durable and longer-lasting. They can withstand various pressures, velocities and temperatures.

The V-Major maintains the proper running temperatures through the use of water jackets and intercoolers. If cooling water is not available, closed circuit cooling systems are utilised. They can be used as vacuum pumps, booster compressors, and for compressed air treatment. The V-Major series can compress carbon dioxide, nitrogen, methane and biogas.

The system can be altered with additional instrumentation for specific application requirements and use a variety of power sources – high or low voltage motors, steam turbines or diesel engines run by a choice of drives and running speeds which can be adjusted for required compressor outputs.

We provide service to all the compressors we sell and each industry has its own compression needs. At the core of any compression machinery, the components and the tools needed to keep them in perfect running order are variations on a central theme.

Any oil free or lubricated piston compressor needs regular maintenance. There are warning signs that your compressor needs to be checked. If its pressure capacity is low or it seems to be making more noise than usual, the system should be checked immediately. We carry all the compressor parts necessary for any maintenance or repair job. Sometimes it may be nothing more than a loose screw, clamp, belt, or pulley. It might be an easy to fix misalignment. Our technicians know everything there is to know about air compressors and we use only genuine aftermarket replacement parts.

Piston compressors, like any compressor, are designed to handle high compression pressures. Our piston compressors are manufactured on site at CompAir who build the most efficient and reliable air compressors available for any industrial applications. In order to keep them running with the reliability and performance of which they are capable, qualified, well trained technicians are ready to prevent downtime and ensure that operating costs will remain low throughout the compressor’s life.

Mid-Tech provide flexible service agreements to suit your requirements and systems regardless of the application. We also offer one-off service deals for convenience. We have the parts, tools and expertise your systems will need, plus same day call-out response is available should your equipment break down.
