For anybody who is interested in valves for reciprocating air compressors, here are some great video’s I found on Youtube.

These valves regulate the intake and exhaust of air to the cylinder. There are two sets of valves: intake valves and exhaust valves.

These type of valves are found on bigger piston compressors. Small piston compressor usually have simple reed valves.
