Reciprocating compressors are relatively low-speed devices, and are belt-driven by an electric motor, either with or without a variable speed drive controller. Reciprocating compressors present a lower cost option than their rotary screw counterparts. An excellent choice for higher pressure applications at a relatively lower price.
