The first is a reciprocal compressor. It has a piston that is used to squeeze the refrigerant that reaches it. It has a crankshaft that moves in back and forth motion. The compressor is powered by a motor. A reciprocating compressor looks quite like an automobile engine in terms of construction. The refrigerant reaches the cylinder through an intake valve. The piston moves in cylinder up and down. The gas which reaches the cylinder is compressed by the piston as it goes upward. The vaporous refrigerant in then moved through the exhaust valve into the condenser. This kind of compressors can be multi-cylindrical. The number of cylinders can range from 2 to 8.
