Existing wobble-plate compressors are mainly used in automotive air-conditioning systems, which require low pressures that can be achieved using single-stage compression. Such wobble-plate compressors have the advantages of compact form and able to operate at high operating speeds. The advantages and applications of existing wobble-plate compressors are further enhanced with the introduction of the symmetrical wobble-plate configuration. This paper describes the design concept, development and experimental work of the newly developed symmetrical multi-stage wobble-plate compressor. This compressor is intended for natural gas refueling application which requires high pressures, utilizing five stage compressions to raise the pressure from 3 to 206 bars. The symmetrical configuration help balances the forces within the compressor horizontally and reduces vibration. Another improvement for this compressor design is the use of oil-free lubrication concept, thus minimising maintenance needed. This compressor concept can also be used to compress other types of industrial gases.
