ACI offers a complete line of proprietary designed compressor valves. Valve type and internals are selected to provide optimized service and performance under varied operating conditions. Compressor valving is a science in itself and requires more detail than the below general outline provides.
A large number of rod failures are the result of inaccurate pre-stressing. ACI’s ExactoTorque is the patented solution. It can be used for a wide variety of mounting and industrial attachments (flange bolting, foundation bolting, etc.), especially where precise alignment and space restrictions are a concern.
Compressor Pistons and Rods
Replacement pistons and rods are available in numerous sizes, configurations and materials. Replacement components can generally be categorized as replications or performance enhanced. Replicated components simply clone the original design, thus offering no design upgrade. Performance enhanced components provide redesigned concepts that optimize maintenance ease, service life and safety.
ACI Services, Inc. supplies one of the most complete liner inventories available on the market.

Replacement Oil Dippers
Replacement oil dippers provide a robust replacement and upgraded alternative for old-style splash lubricated compressors and engines.
Packing Leakage Monitor
