Oil-free air compressors are beneficial in many ways: they are easy to maintain, have reasonable prices, and provide airflow free of lubricants. However, like all air compressors, certain parts will wear out over time and require replacement. One such part that will eventually need replacing in your oil-free compressor is the piston compression ring. If you are experiencing an unexplained loss-of-air from your compressor, a likely cause of the leak is a bad compression ring.
