Maximum temperature reached by a reciprocating compressor
 
What's the general temperature of reciprocating compressors which are applied in Refrigerators and ACs?

It will be good if you give me the temperature of the air which gets compressed...just need a rough idea.


Thanks.

Many reciprocating HPAC's are multistage compressors so the temp will depend on the stage of compression. For example, the final stage in a particular 3000 psi HPAC is 311 deg. F (with seawater cooling) per my spec. sheet.

It depends on the design though...they are all different.

Thanks for the info.
