Article Preview

The structure and working principle of a new translational piston compressor was introduced in this paper. Its piston works in a way of translational motion, hence reduces the piston’s relative velocity to cylinder and cap, as well as friction and wear. In order to avoid vane detaching from piston, simulations were carried out regarding the pre-tightening spring and an optimal preload of the spring was obtained. By analyzed and compared to conventional rolling piston compressor in term of contact force between vane and piston, it was pointed out that the new compressor possessed advantage of kinetic characteristic and is more suitable for the situation of high rotary speed.
