  • Double-acting air compressors
  • ā€œVā€-shaped air compressors
  • Tandem Piston compressors

Rotary air compressors can also be further divided into:

  • Vane type air compressors
  • Screw compressors
  • Lobe and scroll compressors
  • Many more

There are also different kinds of roto-dynamic compressors, including:

  • Centrifugal air compressors
  • Axial flow air compressors
