The present article summarizes the performance of double acting reciprocating air compressor in laboratory set up. The purpose of the performance testing is to verify the theoretical calculations with the practical performance. A performance testing of the double acting reciprocating compressor is used to determine the working condition and analyzing the delivery and suction pressure which plays an important role in maintaining proper pressure heads in receiver. Using conventional performance testing methods, efficiency and working of the double acting reciprocating air compressors are improved. Various measuring instruments are used to measure air flow rate, suction and delivery pressure, power consumption etc. Reciprocating air compressors are mostly used where air flow is constant and high delivery pressures are required, so they are exposed to more risk of failure when changing the pressure by manually regulating a valve. The obtained result show that the effect of various parameters such as speed, flow rate, pressure etc. on reciprocating air compressor performance.
