Reciprocating Compressors – Compressor Valves

Valves are manufactured by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM), and by non-OEM suppliers. The compressor will almost always be supplied with OEM valves, but non-OEM valves are often retrofitted to solve a particular problem, or when a unit is re-rated. Occasionally, non-OEM valves are specified on new machines to match existing equipment or to solve known problems. For more information on various types of compressor valves, see Section 354.
